Some day, South Park really is going to run out of room for new mixed use residential projects, but in the meantime, here’s one formally proposed to the planning department yesterday.
Plans call for a 28-story high-rise with 284 residential units and 6,300 square feet of commercial space. The base of the tower will include five above-grade levels of parking and one subterranean level. The building is set to replace a single-story industrial structure currently on the Grand Avenue site, just south of Pico.
Urbanize LA reports that the tower will be designed by TCA Architects. The firm has been busy in the area lately, working on the bike-friendly G12 project, the eco-friendly Hanover Olympic building, and the transit-friendly Onyx mixed user (such a friendly firm).
Renderings on TCA’s website show a glassy, rectangular tower with a pool deck on top of the above-ground parking structure. But those renderings appear to date back to 2006, so it’s possible that plans for the project have changed a bit since then.
