In the Arts District, local real estate investment trust Hudson Pacific Properties is forging ahead with construction at the 405 Mateo office and retail development.

The project, located at 405 Mateo Street, is highlighted by the 1920s Maxwell Coffee Building, which HPP is transforming into 56,000 square feet of offices atop street-level retail space.  Architecture firm Ware Malcomb is designing the reuse portion of the development.

HPP is also in the midst of construction nearby at 1003 E. 4th Place, where an eight-story building featuring 33,000 square feet of offices and 210 parking spaces is now taking shape.  Architects Orange is designing the ground-up component of the project. 

A small one-story warehouse located between the two sites is being retained for additional retail space.

North across the 4th Street Bridge, the wood framework of the 472-unit Aliso development is nearly complete.  Opposite Mateo Street, developer Carmel Partners has plans for a 13-story mixed-use building.
