Plans are moving ahead for a project in the southern Arts District originally proposed back in 2014.

Joining the dozen-and-a-half or so projects already in various stages of development in the area, it would bring 344 live-work units and 29,544 square feet of commercial space to the neighborhood. Plans filed with the city yesterday call for a seven-story structure that would rise from a large industrial parcel at the intersection of Alameda and Industrial streets.

Planning Department staff tell Curbed that Houston-based developer Camden USA rebooted the project over the summer, after a couple of years during which the project was evidently on hold.

The older version of the project would have included 16 additional units, but about a third of the currently proposed commercial space. Renderings of the development released at that time show a boxy structure with a somewhat Halloween-y color scheme. The renderings are the work of LA-based firm Lorcan O’Herlihy Architects.

The development is one of several planned within just a few blocks of the project site. Right across the street, developer Mark Janda is planning a large 475-unit residential project, while on the other side of Alameda, Atlas Capital’s massive mixed use development Row DTLA continues to announce big-name tenants.
