A small shopping center near the Santa Monica Freeway could make way for a mixed-use development, based on an application filed last week with the L.A. Department of City Planning.

The property, located at the southwest corner of Barrington Avenue and Gateway Boulevard, is slated for the construction of a five-story building that would contain 73 residential units - including six reserved for very low-income households - atop 5,354 square feet of ground-floor retail space, and parking for up to 83 vehicles.

City records list the project applicant as Bob Halavi through an entity called Camdaily, LLC, with representation by Nur Development Consulting.

The development site is located a quarter-mile south of the corner of Gateway and Pico Boulevards, where a similar development featuring 129 apartments is planned to replace another commercial center.  Several other multifamily residential projects are also proposed along Pico Boulevard.

South on Barrington, another residential-retail complex is now under construction at National Boulevard.
