The project site is located at 1100 East 5th Street and 506-530 South Seaton Street (southeast corner of East 5th Street and Seaton Street) in the Central City North community of the City of Los Angeles, California. The project site is currently developed with three vacant, single-story, industrial warehouses that occupy approximately 35,445 square feet of floor area, and an associated surface parking lot.
The project would involve the demolition of the existing warehouses and surface parking lot, and the construction of a 249,758 square foot mixed-use building including up to 220 live/work units, approximately 22,725 square feet of open space for residents, up to 46,548 square feet of commercial uses, and associated parking facilities. Eleven percent of the units (approximately 25 live/work units) would be deed-restricted for very low income households. The proposed building would be up to 110 feet (8 above-ground levels) tall plus 3 levels of subterranean parking and a lower quarter level for storage. The project has been designed to incorporate specific design standards the City has developed to address the Arts District’s unique urban form and architectural characteristics.
Ganddini Group prepared noise and air quality/global climate change impact studies for the project.
