First Look at DTLA's Herald-Examiner-Flanking Mixed-Users

New, 69 comments

Anyone who hates stumpy little seven-story developments should shield your eyes from these two mixed-users, which are set to pop up on either side of Downtown's long-underused Herald-Examiner building. On the plus side, the project will include the restoration of that building, which was designed by Hearst Castle architect Julia Morgan and is now used only as a part-time film set. Developer Forest City bought the two sites—at Eleventh and Hill and one at Twelfth Street between Broadway and Main—at the beginning of the year and is planning two seven-story mixed-users with 391 new apartments and 16,000 square feet of groundfloor retail, according to new docs from the Downtown LA Neighborhood Council. The Herald-Examiner rehab hasn't been illuminated any further by the paperwork, though the docs do say that the "[p]roposed project includes the historic rehabilitation of the Herald-Examiner building," not the full redevelopment that's been in the works for years. (We're awaiting further information from the firm handling the rehab.) Update 6:37 pm: The Director of Real Estate for Hearst says that while the timing, like the ownership, of the H-E and the Forest City apartments are separate, Hearst "hope[s] to coordinate construction schedules depending on timing of permits."
