A cluster of late 19th and early 20th century buildings in Westlake could be redeveloped with apartments, according to plans filed yesterday with the City of Los Angeles.

The proposed development, slated for three parcels at 500-512 S. Union Avenue, would consist of a seven-story building featuring 85 apartments - including 13 very low-income affordable units - with parking for 43 vehicles.

Requested entitlements for the project include Transit Oriented Communities affordable housing incentives allowing for reductions to required side yard setbacks and open space.

City records list the project applicant as Ramin Shillian, the president of 3-D Construction.  The applicant's representative is listed as West Pacifica Design.

Other developments planned in the Westlake neighborhood include affordable housing projects slated for two nearby sites on Westlake Avenue, as well as an eight-story market-rate building proposed on Hartford Avenue.
