The owner of a 98-year-old building in the Fashion District hopes to convert its upper floors into apartments, according to plans filed today with the City of Los Angeles.

The three-story industrial building, located at 1320 S. Main Street, is currently home to three ground-level commercial stalls occupied by wholesale retailers.  Developer Nepak Capital Property Investment, LLC intends to turn the top two floors of the building into four joint live/work apartments, while retaining the existing retail space.  No other changes are planned at the property.
