A developer wants to build an 88-unit apartment in Sun Valley, an area that is largely industrial but has seen a recent rise in home prices.

Allegheny Ventures LLC plans to demolish the existing four single-family homes on Allegheny Street, according to plans filed with the Department of City Planning. Glendale attorney Armen Dovlatian represented the LLC in the filing, and no other information about owner was available. Dovaltian did not immediately return requests for comment.

The properties were purchased in September 2017 for $3.2 million. They are located at 11957, 11958 and 11961 W. Allegheny streets.

The number of condos sold in January, 146, was the highest total since 2014.
