A developer wants to add to the growing roster of mid-rise apartment complexes sprouting in East Hollywood.

Kenneth Sauder — on behalf of Wakeland Wilcox LLC — has filed plans for a four-story, 62-unit building at 4904-4920 W. Santa Monica Boulevard, county records show. The building would have a substantial affordable component.

The entity acquired the property, now a 4,850-square-foot office building and adjacent parking lot, for $6.4 million in September.

The applicant is requesting special zoning considerations under Los Angeles’ Transit Oriented Communities initiative, which encourages the construction of affordable housing near transit stations.
