An industrial facility in Jefferson Park operated by Unified Grocers, Inc. may be replaced by a new development of townhomes, according to plans filed yesterday with the City of Los Angeles.

The 1.47-acre property, located at 3101 W. Exposition Boulevard, had served as the home of Unified Grocers' dairy products division.  The company has since been bought out by the Minneapolis-based company Supervalu.

Both properties are located a short distance north of the Expo Line and within walking distance of a station at Crenshaw Boulevard.
