Environmental documents for a new six story building (.pdf) at Washington and Overland have been filed with the city--developers want to build a mixed-use project with first and second floor retail, office, and restaurant space. But there are already restaurants living on that property--it's Westside Food Truck Central, in fact. The lot hosts trucks for lunch and dinner every weekday, although according to a note on its website, it's temporarily closed "for the next few weeks while we sort out some permits with the city." They do say they'll be back soon, but for how long? The plans call for 126 residential units on floors two through six, with 310 parking spaces and 11,565 square feet of open space, including private open space, an exercise room, courtyards, and a fifth floor deck. Gateway Equities LLC bought the property back in 2008 from Sony, according to an old LA Business Journal article. They paid $7.4 million and knew at the time that they'd be building a six story mixed-use.
