A 1.44-acre property flanking the Harbor Freeway could birth multifamily residential units and pedestrian-oriented commercial space.

Earlier today, plans were filed with the City of Los Angeles to build a seven-story apartment building at 136 S. Beaudry Avenue.  The property, which lies between 1st and 2nd Streets, would yield 220 dwelling units, in addition to 7,500 square feet of ground-floor retail space and amenities including a pool, a jacuzzi and a parking garage.

Additional details are currently unclear.
