Following a "top-to-bottom redesign," the Mayfair Hotel reopens today at the corner of 7th Street and Witmer Avenue, just west of Downtown Los Angeles. 

The 15-story, 294-room hotel, established in 1926, has received an overhaul by Los Angeles-based developer ICO Group of Companies.  Gulla Jónsdóttir Architecture & Design and Artist-in-Residence Kelly "RISK" Graval were tapped to design the renovation, which is billed as a modern recreation of vintage 1920s designs.

ICO partnered with Hospitality Alliance to program the Mayfair's dining and lounge spaces.  Offerings will include Eve American Bistro, M Bar, The Library Bar, and an outdoor pool.

The hotel sits directly across from the site of a proposed 27-story apartment tower by American Lifan, the U.S. subsidiary of the Chinese motorcycle manufacturer Lifan Motors.  Also under construction at 7th and Witmer is a 76-unit affordable housing development by Deep Green Housing.

Ten months ago, Santa Clarita-based Williams Homes broke ground on a small lot subdivision in San Pedro.  The project, which replaces a vacant lot at the intersection of 8th and Streets, is known as 24 on Centre.  Plans call for 24 single-family residences, all of which would feature a rooftop deck and a parking garage.
