A pair of century-old houses just outside of Downtown Santa Monica could give way to a mixed-use development, according to plans submitted to the city's Architectural Review Board.

The property, located at 1512 Euclid Street, is slated for the construction of a new three-story building containing 10 residential units above 1,597 square feet of ground-floor retail space and semi-subterranean parking for 18 vehicles.  According to a staff report, all of the proposed apartments would have one-bedroom floor plans - including two which would be set aside for low-income households.

HLW International is designing the proposed development, which is depicted as a contemporary low-rise structure clad in metal, glass, and board-formed concrete.

A staff report to the Architectural Review Board recommends approval of the design concept.

City records list the owner of the development site as local investor Faramarz Bardi through the entity Euclid Partners, LLC.

The development site is located just north of the intersection of Colorado Avenue and Euclid Street, where Friedkin Group is now in the midst of construction on a three-story office building across the street from the Expo Line right-of-way.
