UPDATED, 2:15 p.m., April 11: An entity linked to La Mancha, a prolific SoCal retail strip developer, and the Santa Monica-based Dynamic Development Company filed plans for a five-story mixed-use complex at the corner of Western and Franklin avenues, city filings show.

The project calls for 96 units and 5,500 square feet of retail, planning documents show. It would require the demolition of three residential units as well as a gas station. Of the 96 units, 16 would be set aside for very low-income households.

The applicant, Western & Franklin LLC, is registered to Damon Porter of the Santa Monica-based Dynamic and Samuel Bachner of La Mancha.

The mixed-use structure will likely include a restaurant, as the project application also requested a permit for the sale and dispensing of alcohol.

Dynamic is currently in escrow for the property at 1868 N. Western Avenue, according to a company spokesperson. The current owner is auto shop operator Adly Abdelmalak, who paid $3.6 million for it in 2013.
