Later this month, the Los Anglees City Planning will consider a proposal to construct a mixed-use building featuring apartments and ground-floor retail space in Eagle Rock.

The project, whose applicant is listed as Imad Boukhai of General Procurement, calls for the construction of a five-story building at 1332 W. Colorado Boulevard, featuring 26 residential units - including two for very low income households - above 4,138 square feet of retail space and 57 parking spaces.

An earlier attempt to develop the property with apartments was scuttled midway through construction, leaving only its foundation completed.
