According to plans filed with the city earlier this month, a small mixed-use development is headed to a .3-acre property in San Pedro, located just a short walk from Bandini Canyon Park.  The new low-rise building would emerge from a currently vacant lot at 335 North Gaffey Street, consisting of 30 apartment units above street-level commercial space.  Although current neighbors include an auto-oriented mixture of strip malls and drive-thru restaurants, the proposed residential-retail complex would likely benefit from Gaffey Street's selection in Mayor Eric Garcetti's Great Streets Initiative.  Planned improvements under the initiative include new plazas, parklets, and landscaping, focused on a one mile stretch between the southern terminus of the Harbor Freeway and 13th Street.
