Planning documents published online by the city this week reveal renderings of a major new mixed use development planned for Historic South Central.
Called Adams and Grand, the boxy-looking project would rise, appropriately enough, on the northeast corner of Adams Boulevard and Grand Avenue. The renderings show that the design by Humphreys and Partners Architects further references the project’s location with a large intersecting G and A just above the roofline.
The restaurant and commercial buildings that currently exist on the project site would be razed to make way for a seven-story building with 296 units of housing and 5,000 square feet of commercial space.
According to project plans, 25 of the housing units would be made available to very low-income residents (those making less than half the area median income). The commercial space would be divided up between a restaurant and retailer.
Also included in the project would be 343 parking spaces for cars and another 332 for bicycles in a two-story podium garage.
As Urbanize LA reports, the building is being developed by LA-based firm CityView. It’s one of a host of projects in various stages of development around the Expo Line.
Construction on the Adams and Grand project is expected to begin in early 2018 and last 27 months. That would put the building’s expected completion date in spring or summer of 2020.
