A nondescript office and retail building in Encino is slated to give way for a mixed-use complex, according to a filing earlier today with the Los Angeles Department of City Planning.

The project, which comes from a limited liability company known as Encino Investors, would raze a two-story edifice at 16161 W. Ventura Boulevard that dates to the mid-20th century.  This would be followed by the construction of a six-story building that would feature 114 apartments above ground-floor commercial space.

The applicant has requested density bonus incentives for the development, which indicates that it will contain an affordable housing component.

Additional details about the project are currently unclear.
