Chinatown’s Los Angeles State Historic Park has hosted music festivals in the past but it seems the music may be coming permanently to its corner of the neighborhood. A filing with the city planning department shows that an adaptive reuse project is in the works for some warehouses off Spring Street near the bridge over the Los Angeles River.

The plans for 1729-1743 Naud Street are to reuse part of a 27,841 square foot warehouse and construct a new, 1,000-square-foot building to eventually house an approximately 15,000 square foot “cultural facility” with a restaurant, nightclub, music stages, and bar. Anticipated uses for the space include fashion shows, live music, and special events, filings say.

The project address in filings is only on Naud Street, but city records show several other addresses linked to this project, including an address along Spring Street that Eater LA has connected to a possible new outpost of Apotheke, a popular New York bar in Manhattan’s Chinatown neighborhood.

The filing for this project details a 181-seat bar with a nearly 4,000-square-foot patio with seating on the ground floor and its roof.

The developer for the project is listed as Listen to the River LLC and Eli Kagan, brother of Adaptive Realty’s Moses Kagan.
