The blighted industrial stretch of Jefferson Boulevard that cuts through Mid City Los Angeles could be livened up with a mixed-use development.

According to an agenda item from last month's meeting of CRA/LA, West Hollywood-based Charles Company could take control of a former CRA asset at 3900-3914 W. Jefferson Boulevard to build an office building with ground-floor retail space.  However, the height and square footage of the building has not been determined.

The property is an L-shaped site spanning approximately .61 acres between Wellington and Virginia Roads.  It sits less than a half-mile north of Expo/Crenshaw Station, which will eventually offer rail service Los Angeles International Airport, in addition to Downtown Los Angeles and Santa Monica.

Charles Company also controls a 6.5-acre property one block south of the light rail station, where the company has tentative plans for a 200-unit apartment complex with pedestrian-oriented commercial space.

A potential redevelopment is also in the works for a County-owned property which abuts the station's westbound Expo Line platform.
