Social media posts by the Los Angeles Department of City Planning have unveiled a new rendering for the Adams & Grand development, a mixed-use complex planned south of Downtown Los Angeles.

The project, which comes from Los Angeles-based developer CityView, is named for its location at the northeast corner of Adams Boulevard and Grand Avenue.  Plans call for a seven-story edifice, featuring 296 apartments - including 25 for very low-income households - and 5,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space.  The mixture of studio, one- and two-bedroom units would offer access to amenities such as a swimming pool and multiple courtyards.

Completion of the project, which was approved by the Los Angeles City Planning Commission in August, is expected in 2020.
