Southern Arts District Getting Big LOHA-Designed Mixed-User



Quote:
While the North Arts District is adaptively reusing an old, vacant flour mill as a massive art space, down in the South Arts District, the wrecking ball is coming out. A fairly unlovely cold-storage company is slated to be demolished in favor of a handsome, brick-and metal-covered, 240-unit mixed-use compound. Broker/blogger Brigham Yen tells us that the Camden Group is in the approvals process for the project, called, almost parodically, Industrial, which will extend for a half-block along Industrial Street, but will also meet Alameda Street. The project is designed by Lorcan O'Herlihy Architects, the La-Cienega-based firm most known for its many small apartment buildings in West Hollywood.

South Park's 24-Story Glass Tower is Back From the Dead



Quote:
Everything old is new again! A 24-story condo tower project at Eleventh and Grand, floundering since the mid-aughts, looks to be on track again with a new owner, new name, and a new timeline, reports the LA Times. The "ultra-sophisticated" project formerly known as the Glass Tower will have 151 units, groundfloor retail (restaurants, shopping), and two-story penthouses on the roof. For years the project just could not get off the ground—not in 2008 and not in 2009. By the fall of 2011, the owner listed the lot with its entitlements and that was the last word for years. The project was recently purchased by SF-based Trumark Urban, which plans to make minimal changes to the existing designs so they don't have to go back through the long process for new approvals. They have, however, asked Downtown firm HansonLA to "refresh" the design, and we'll have those to show off tomorrow.

It could be up as soon as 2016. >>

Here's the Newest 7-Story Mixed-User Slated For South Park



Quote:
The stretch of Figueroa across from the (to-be-renovated) LA Convention Center is heating up, with the recently-opened Avant apartments and now the proposed development of a parking lot just across the street from the Convention Center into a colorful seven-story mixed-user. Documents submitted to the Downtown LA Neighborhood Council's Planning and Land Use Committee show that the project, developerd by DHG Family Trust and designed by GMP Architects, will have 106 units, 1,400 square feet of groundfloor retail, and possibly four live/work units (the developers might just use the 3,500-square-feet of space for more retail), plus 114 parking spaces and 125 bike parking spaces.

Huge Mixed-Use Project Could Change the Face of Chinatown



Quote:
All the crane-and-construction action in Downtown has been seeping up into Chinatown for a while now—the Jia Apartments opened recently, the Blossom Plaza complex has finally gotten underway, and the old Velvet Turtle lot has been cleared out for an undetermined future mixed-use project. Why, the only thing it's missing now are some residential high-rises. Enter a new proposal by EVOQ Properties (as seen on Building LA), which has two visions—both huge—for a project called College Station on a Gold-Line-adjacent lot at the northeast corner of Spring and College. One plan has two 20-story towers rising on the 5.24-acre lot, along with retail, live/work units, market-rate apartments, a market, parking, and affordable housing for seniors. And even the less ambitious plan would create 533 new transit-oriented units, more than double the apartments in Blossom Plaza, underway just across the street. Both are designed by VTBS Architects.


Quote:
At the corner of College Street and Spring (parcel 1), there will be two 20-story towers with as many as 500 units and about 20,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space on the ground level. The towers will also have five live/work units and communal decks and pools on their respective rooftops. The vacant lot was a railyard and is now occasionally used for parking.


Quote:
Senior housing would go in the middle of the development (parcel 2), offering 100 affordable apartments in a 62-foot, four-story building. The ground floor of the senior living structure would also have a 20,000-square-foot market. This section of the development would also include a public plaza and underground parking.


Quote:
The northernmost end of the development (parcel 3) would be home to an eight-story, 80-unit live/work building with a central courtyard and greenspace. There'd be some more retail or a restaurant on the corner of Spring and Llewellyn streets.
An alternate plan eliminates the two towers in favor of low-rise housing:

First Look at Massive Mixed-Use Complex Heading to Vine St.



Quote:
Hollywood's lost an Oscars Outdoors screening venue, but it's gaining retail and office space, plus a 23-story residential tower on the dusty block near Sunset and Vine that was once scheduled to be the home of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences' movie museum (now moved to the Miracle Mile on the edge of LACMA's campus). Developer Kilroy Realty paid $46 million for the property about six months ago (the pre-Academy landowners were miffed about the sale, since they felt they'd been pressured to sell to the Academy), and announced they'd put nearly $300 million into building this fancy mixed-user with housing and office space. This latest rendering from Shimoda Design Group certainly looks that expensive.

According to a press release, the northwest corner of the lot (at Ivar and De Longpre) will have a 23-story residential building; most of the 20,000 square feet of retail space will be concentrated on the Vine and De Longpre side, where there will also be a public plaza. The office space, created with entertainment, tech, and media companies in mind, will spread out across three "terraced" four-story buildings; all connected by "landscaped passageways" through the complex's central space. Construction is expected to begin in early 2016.

West Hollywood Could Get an Elaborate Mixed-User at Santa Monica and Melrose



Quote:
A trio of new mixed-users on the edge of West Hollywood has inched forward, with city planners giving the green-light Thursday night, WeHoville reports. The Melrose Triangle project, from developer Charles Company and architect Studio One Eleven, would seriously reinvent the intersection of Santa Monica Boulevard, Melrose, and Almont Avenue, with 76 housing units (15 for low- and moderate-income folks) in a five-story building, retail, restaurants, and office space, plus a whopping 884 parking spaces in four underground levels. According to the architect's site, "The space between buildings has been carefully crafted to create paseos, plazas, and courtyards that invite pedestrians to pass through the project and contribute to the ambience of the development."

Downtown L.A. feels so terrifyingly empty. They need more mixed-use midrise developments and density throughout, shiny concrete gold won't help much, as it's barely inhabitated.

Hmm, that was probably taken during the weekend. Weekdays during the day it's bustling and weekends at night.

It's squeezing into the parking lot at 1400 S. Fig. between two apartment projects creating a nice streetwall from Venice up to Pico.

It's improving.

in 1999 the population was somewhere around 19k-25k.

Now it's over 52k. It's doubled in 10 years. We won't be seeing 100k+ until roughly 2030 due to lack of historic buildings in need of adaptive reuse but it'll get there. Downtown will be a much more vibrant and lively city center by 2030. Development is slowly but surely coming along. Plenty of residential projects are increasing the population.

In DTLA as recently as Jan 2013 I certainly didn't get the impression it was "terrifyingly empty." Indeed, it was a helluva lot livelier than what I expected.

That's an enviable trend in any auto-centric city.

Bad how? Are you aware of any other major cities that doubled their downtown population in as short a time? Especially during a major recession in which people were losing houses, not moving to new downtown ones?

Movietown Plaza Now Avalon West Hollywood



Quote:
It took quite a while to get into gear, but the West Hollywood mixed-use complex formerly known as Movietown Plaza and now called Avalon West Hollywood is actually breaking ground today and developers AvalonBay Communities have release these updated renderings by MVE & Partners. The project, expected to open in early 2016, will bring 370 units (77 will be affordable senior housing), 32,000 square feet of retail, and two 10-story towers to a site previously occupied by a large stripmall on Santa Monica Boulevard (most tenants were kicked out way back in 2010).
