735 S. Broadway, proposed for conversion to six live-work units.

The shabby four-story building at 735 S. Broadway may not seem the most likely place for residential development, but that's exactly what is proposed for the 100-year-old structure.

Permits were recently filed to convert the upper three floors to six live-work units, keeping the basement and first floor for retail uses. The work would also include seismic upgrades and the removal of the ugly cinder blocks currently blocking off the structure's windows.

Listed on the building permit is Vladimir Bogdanov Tomalevski of L&V Architects.

The building, with 30 feet of street frontage and just under 23,000s.f. total, was purchased at the end of 2010 for somewhere around $900,000.
