A mid-century industrial building on Adams Boulevard could make way for a mixed-use apartment building, according to plans submitted this week to the City of Los Angeles.

The property, located at 5617-5621 W. Adams Boulevard, is currently improved with a one-story edifice dating to the late 1950s.  Property owner Jack Abaiankalimi intends to raze the 60-year-old building to make way for the construction of a five-story edifice featuring 19 residential units - of which two would be set aside for extremely low-income households - atop street-fronting retail space.

Requested entitlements for the project include Transit Oriented Communities affordable housing incentives.

Across the street, Mid-Wilshire-based developer CIM Group is seeking approvals from the Department of Building and Safety to construct a three-story building at 5600 W. Adams Boulevard featuring just over 29,000 square feet of office and ground-floor retail space.

Renderings of the project, which is being designed by NMDA, depict a contemporary concrete-framed building.

CIM Group is currently developing a number of properties along Adams Boulevard.
