Those lots are roughly as deep as the ones on Besserer street where the Galleria Condos were built. Something along those lines with retail on the bottom would be possible. A basic residential design with units front and back and a hallway up the middle is definitely do-able.
Many of the buildings along that block are currently being re-faced and fixed up some degree. Nothing fancy or award winning (new stucco, retail doors, signage, some faux brick), but it is certainly a considerable improvement.
