Local real estate firm Schon Tepler Group intends to build a residential-retail development in Eagle Rock, per a filing yesterday with the Los Angeles Department of City Planning.

The proposed mixed-use project is slated for an approximately 17,000-square-foot property on Avenue 43, just north of Eagle Rock Boulevard.  Plans call for a four-story edifice featuring 28 rental apartments above approximately 1,000 square feet of street-fronting commercial space.

Architect Sammie Tabrizi is designing the contemporary low-rise building, which has been refined due to feedback from community members.

Schon Tepler is currently developing 14 multifamily projects in the City of Los Angeles, including a similar low-rise apartment complex that is now nearing completion in Del Rey.

The Eagle Rock development site is located immediately north of another residential-retail development which comes from Local Constructs.
