Another member of the Delijani family has proposed a project: a 220-unit mixed-use complex west of the Harbor Freeway on Beaudry Avenue.

The plan calls for a seven-story structure and 7,500 square feet of ground floor commercial space, according to documents submitted to the city on Monday by an entity associated with Michael Delijani.

Located between 106 and 136 Beaudry Avenue, the 0.75-acre lot contains at least one warehouse, according to property records.

An associate of Delson Investment, which is owned by Michael Delijani, told The Real Deal the project in Greater Downtown — sometimes called City West — is Michael’s first multifamily development. Just two weeks ago, his cousin Fred Delijani submitted plans to build a 179-unit apartment building on the corner of Riverside Drive and Lankershim Boulevard in North Hollywood.

The Delijani family is not new to landowning in Los Angeles. In the late 1980s, Ezat Delijani — Michael’s father — began buying and preserving historic theaters on Broadway. Now, the family owns at least four early 20th century theaters in DTLA, including the Los Angeles Theater.
