A mostly empty lot just west of the Harbor Freeway could be developed with a mid-rise tower, according to plans filed yesterday with the City of Los Angeles.

The 1.2-acre site, located at the southeast corner of 8th Street and Garland Avenue, is slated for the construction of a 14-story building that would feature 118 residential units, office space, ground-floor retail uses, and parking for up to 323 vehicles.

City records list the project applicant as a company known as WPDTLA.  Its principal, Charles Hung, was also the applicant behind an earlier proposal to construct an 18-story residential tower on the property.

Additional details about the proposed development are currently unclear.

Other projects in the works to the west of the Harbor Freeway include a small residential-retail building proposed two blocks away at 8th and Columbia Avenue, as well as a potential hotel complex at Pico Boulevard and Albany Street.
