Nine months after a ceremonial groundbreaking for the project, Little Tokyo Service Center is prepping for construction at the long-awaited Terasaki Budokan.

The $25-million project, located at 237-249 S. Los Angeles Street, will provide a multi-purpose sports and activities center capable of accommodating martial arts tournaments, basketball and volleyball games, and other activities.

Gruen Associates is designing the facility, which is named for the late philanthropist Dr. Paul Terasaki.

An opening date for the facility is expected in 2019.
