A behemoth affordable housing complex may be coming to Skid Row.

Plans were filed Tuesday for two multifamily buildings comprising 407 units plus 12,300 square feet of commercial space on the block bound by San Pedro and Crocker Streets along East 6th Street, city documents show.

While no applicant was formally named, property records show the Skid Row site is owned by the Weingart Center Association, a homeless service provider based just down the street on San Pedro.

A spokesperson for Weingart did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The site, which spans more than half an acre, consists of two vacant lots and a one-story manufacturing structure. Weingart acquired the main parcel from the state of California in 2012 for close to $850,000, property records show.

Under his affordable housing directive, Mayor Eric Garcetti recently set a goal of permitting 100,000 new units of housing by 2021, at least 15,000 of which would be reserved for low-income households.
