Cimmarusti Holdings, a Los Angeles-based company which operates a significant number of Burger King restaurants, is reviving an abandoned plan for a high-rise development north of Bunker Hill.

The proposed 22-story edifice, slated for the southwest corner of Grand and Cesar E Chavez Avenues, would feature 299 residential units and 8,000 square feet of ground-level retail space.

The approximately 250-foot tall building would be seated above a six-level parking structure, which would include one subterranean floor.  The garage would provide a total of 408 vehicle stalls and 411 bicycle parking spaces, accessible by two driveways on Bunker Hill Avenue.

Construction of the project would require the demolition of one of Cimmarusti Holdings' numerous Burger King establishments, as well as an associated parking lot.

Further details about the proposed tower are unavailable at this point in time.

Redevelopment plans for the 1.37-acre site at 720 W Cesar E Chavez Avenue date back to 2006, when brothers Larry and Ralph Cimmarusti announced their intention to construct a 31-story, 200-unit condominium tower named in honor of their grandmother.

Years later, the property received entitlements for a less ambitious seven-story development and was subsequently put up for sale.
