The proposed development would replace auto repair shop and flower shop buildings with an approximately 53,000-square-foot, 95-foot-tall apartment community holding 15 studio units, 19 one-bedrooms, and eight two-bedrooms, along with 1,183 square feet of retail space.

Designs for the proposal, which is named Mountain View Apartments in planning documents, are being led by project architect EWAI LLC.

The developer is seeking Tier-2 project approvals under the city’s Transit Oriented Communities Incentive Program, including a 16-unit density bonus. Four apartments would be reserved for extremely low-income households in accordance with the TOC program, plans show.

The project would provide 36 automobile parking spaces between ground-floor and mezzanine-level parking, along with space for 46 bicycles.

Plans also call for almost 5,000 square feet of open space, including a fitness center and a 2,162-square-foot roof deck.

Lee is also the developer behind recently updated plans for a 301-unit project in Koreatown.

Los Angeles County property records show the project site for Mountain View Apartments was acquired by a company tied to Lee in late December for about $2.05 million.
