A seven-story mixed-use project on Alameda between Industrial and Wholesale streets faces it first big test in City Hall next week when it heads to the planning commission for review.

Developer Camden Property Trust wants to bring 344 live/work apartments, about 25,000 square feet of creative office space, and 5,000 square feet for restaurants to the white-hot Arts District.

The units would range from 550 to 1,277 square feet. Resident amenities would include a pool, a dog run, and a clubhouse. Warehouse buildings on the site now would be demolished to make way for the new project.

The two-building complex is designed by the Los Angeles firm Lorcan O’Herlihy Architects. The exterior would incorporate brick veneer, metal panels, and stucco, plus a mural, notes Urbanize LA.

Planning department staffers are recommending approval of Camden’s plans, which will ultimately need to be approved by the Los Angeles City Council.

The Arts District’s steady stream of proposed projects and in-the-works developments shows no signs of slowing down.

Just along this stretch of Alameda between Sixth and Seventh, there’s a lot going on: 6AM—a project with office space, retail, a school, and twin 58-story towers—and a development that would hold 475 live/work apartments are both in the pipeline. The rest of the AD is filling up fast.
