A strip mall on the border of Koreatown and East Hollywood could give way to a mixed-income apartment complex, according to plans filed yesterday with the City of Los Angeles.

The proposed development, slated for a .37-acre site at the southwest corner of Melrose and Ardmore Avenues, calls for the construction of a six-story building featuring 66 residential units and 68 parking spaces.  Plans call for six units of affordable housing priced at the extremely-low-income level.

The project was filing through the city's Transit Oriented Communities program, which allows for relief from certain zoning restrictions in exchange for on- or off-site affordable housing.

City records list the project's applicant as an entity known as Ardmore Capital, LLC, with representation by Nur Development Consulting.
