Grand Avenue.  A case filing from the Department of City Planning indicates that the development would include more than 50 dwelling units, a portion of which would be set aside as affordable housing.

Sources indicate that the project is being developed by the real estate firm CityView.  The Los Angeles-based company is currently constructing a seven-story development on a long-vacant property in Koreatown.
