Another intriguing historical building is going mixed-use Downtown: the 1929 Foreman & Clark building on Seventh and Hill Streets is set to transform into a residential building with a bar and restaurants. Building LA spotted the adaptive reuse plans for the 13-story building, which were submitted to the city at the end of May and call for 165 residential units, plus two restaurants and a bar. The building's second through fourth floors were once the "flagship" store for men's clothing store Foreman & Clark, and the building was designed by Curlett & Beelman Architects, whose other works include the Park Plaza Hotel and the Barker Brothers building.
Stores were known for their "distinctive" second story locations and their big, fancy display windows, which can still be seen today. Just about a block down, the Broadway Trade Center has plans for its own mixed-use reboot that could include offices, a hotel, stores and residential. Is Broadway coming back so strong that it's spreading to Hill Street?
