A massive housing complex may soon rise in Marina del Rey.

Plans for a mixed-use building with 658 apartment units and 27,300 square feet of commercial space were filed last week with city planning for the site at 13450 West Maxella Avenue. Sixty-six of the units will be reserved as affordable housing.

The owner of the property, according to CoStar, is an entity linked to Steve McKenzie of Channel West, a boutique real estate firm based in Malibu.

The 6.8-acre site is currently occupied by a two-story retail strip built in 1977. It’s nearly fully leased, records show, by tenants such as DSW Shoe Warehouse and La Pain Quotidien.

In addition to a vesting zone change and general plan amendment, the project requested an alcohol sales permit for 12 establishments, city documents show.

McKenzie could not be immediately reached for comment.
