Seo and Hyun Sook Whang filed plans last week to develop a six-story mixed-used project that would replace a gas station that now sits at the corner of 6th Street and South Manhattan Place.

The development at 4000 W. 6th Street would feature retail space and 44 studio apartments, six of which would be set aside for very low income tenants.

The project would require a zoning change. Only 27 units are currently approved for the site.

Seo and Whang have requested an increase to the allowable floor area ratio and a reduction in the required setback. [Urbanize] – Naiwen Tian
