The Hillcrest Company's plan for a mixed-use development in the Arts District took a step forward last week, with the publication of the project's initial study.

Slated for a .67-acre corner lot at 1800 E. 7th Street, the project would consist of a seven-story building featuring 122 live/work units and a 9,500 square feet of retail, restaurant, and creative office space.  Plans also call for nearly 6,000 square feet of arts and production space, as well as parking for 132 vehicles on two subterranean levels.

In exchange for density bonus incentives, the project would set aside 14 apartments for very-low-income households.

HansonLA is designing the mid-rise development, which will feature a podium-level courtyard featuring a pool, outdoor dining and lounge space.  the building's rooftop will also be activated through a garden.

Construction of 1800 E. 7th Street is anticipated to occur over approximately 16 months, although a start date for the project has not been identified.

Hillcrest is also behind the adaptive reuse of the historic Walnut Grower's building.
