On the heels of multiple industrial-to-residential conversions in the Downtown Fashion District, a small building just south of Santee Village may be looking to get in on the action.

Last week, developer Uri Harkham filed plans with the City of Los Angeles to convert a small commercial building at 823 S. Los Angeles street into 12 live-work apartments.  The low-rise structure, located mid-block between 8th and 9th Streets, already features ground-level commercial space.

According to city records, the four-story structure was built in 1920 as a manufacturing facility.

Further details about the project are currently unclear.
