A private developer wants to build 77 live-work units in Koreatown, city documents show.

Crenshaw Country Club LLC, an entity tied to investor Brian Han, filed plans Monday for a seven-story mixed-use project with 3,100 square feet of retail at 614 S. Westmoreland Avenue. 

The new project would replace a one-story office building on a 0.4-acre lot. Han acquired the site for $6.9 million in August, records show.

The investor is not new to Koreatown. He already owns a small, 1920s-era apartment building at 841 Fedora Street.

Koreatown was the hottest submarket for multifamily development in 2016, accounting for 14 percent of the total units filed in the city of Los Angeles, The Real Deal found in a recent analysis of city planning documents.

Its streak seems to be continuing into 2017, too. Earlier this month, developer Urban Commons filed plans for a 146,500-square-foot senior housing complex at 3377 West Olympic Boulevard. Meanwhile, to the west, developer Raymond Saviss plans to break ground on an 81-unit complex at 2859 Francis Avenue near McArthur Park.
