Another Seven-Story Mixed-User Headed For South Park

Friday, November 22, 2013, by Neal Broverman

A moribund stretch of Olympic Boulevard in South Park (East South Park?) is slowly coming back to life--the latest project is a TCA-designed mixed-user at Grand Avenue, called 1000 Grand. It's set to break ground in the spring. Sure to incite the ire of skyscraper enthusiasts like Councilmember Jose Huizar, the seven-story project from the Hanover Company--currently building a mixed-user at Olympic and Hill while another developer gets ready to start on a similar project at Olympic and Olive--will bring 274 rental units and 12,000 square feet of retail, along with a pool, theater, gym, and bike parking. The former nightclub at the site, known as Crash Mansion, is already being demolished, though part of the structure, which dates to 1910, will be repurposed for the new building. The sidewalks along Olympic here are an ADA lawsuit come to life but Brigham Yen notes they will be replaced and widened as part of the development, while already-wide Olympic will get even fatter, courtesy of the LADOT.

1000 Grand Getting Ready For Construction



Thursday, April 3, 2014

With Danny's Tacos safely relocated to the opposite side of the street, it's time to bid farewell to the beloved surface parking lot at Olympic Boulevard and Grand Avenue. The arrival of construction fencing signals the start of work on the Hanover Company's latest South Park development. Set to rise seven stories, 1000 Grand Avenue will create 274 apartment units above 12,000 square feet of ground floor commercial space. Designed by TCA Architects, the facade of the low-rise building will feature bricks salvaged from Myron's Ballroom, an early 20th century structure which was demolished to make way for the new development. 1000 Grand is one of three South Park projects currently in the works from the Hanover Company, all of which are located along Olympic Boulevard. The Houston-based developer currently has a 281-unit apartment building under construction at the corner of Olympic and Hill Street, with plans for a 263-unit development on an adjacent parking lot. Like 1000 Grand, both projects were designed by TCA Architects.

Wow, this one is quite advanced. Another low-rise, but I actually don't mind, we have plenty of space in DT and it give us a variety of living options.

Agree when you get outside of the core. UNLESS the low-risers get together and start objecting to 20-30 story stuff.

At least we can say "subterranean parking structure", for those who shutter at the thought.

Why is this called Bway and Grand, when its on Olympic and Grand? Bway and Grand would be a very interesting corner.
