Half of Ava Little Tokyo Tops Out, Adjacent Mixed-User Digs In

New, 27 comments

Little Tokyo was a hive of activity this weekend, both with foot traffic and construction. Ava Little Tokyo was at the center of the hubbub, with one of its two buildings topping out along Second and Los Angeles Streets. The mixed-user fills in part of an enormous parking lot called Block D, with 280 apartments and 17,000 square feet of retail (developer AvalonBay Communities is considering a small grocery store). The project should be finished in about a year and another mixed-user, with 240 apartments, is currently just a big-ass hole in the ground, but will be a shiny new building in 2015. Across Los Angeles Street, the Budokan fitness center is raising money and backers hope to break ground in a couple years. And continuing LT's winning streak, Metro will be building a new subway station for the Regional Connector line just a few blocks from Block D.
