According to a document from the Los Angeles City Council, yet another mixed-use development may be in the works for El Pueblo.
A motion authored by 14th District Councilmember Jose Huizar directs the various city departments to prepare and release a request for proposals for the development of El Pueblo's Lot 2. The two-acre parking lot, bounded by Cesar E Chavez Avenue, Spring and Main Streets, currently serves visitors to Olvera Street and several nearby museums.
The potential development comes on the heels of La Plaza Cultura Village, a $140-million mixed-use complex which broke ground in July. The project, which is being developed by a team lead by the Trammell Crow Company, is replacing two former parking lots owned by Los Angeles County.
