Say hello to 1138 Wilshire, a new-construction Downtown office project from West Edge Architects. Located in the City West district, the seven-story, 86,844 square-foot commercial/retail development is set to go before Downtown's Planning & Land Use Committee tonight. The building, near 1100 Wilshire, will replace a surface parking lot and will have a "fine-dining" restaurant and corner cafe downstairs with Class A offices upstairs. Yes, this project bucks the trend of downtown office buildings converting to upscale housing. No word yet whether the developer is considering doing any adaptive reuse at this time.
