Architecture firm Togawa Smith Martin has offered up a new rendering for 6th at Central, the the latest residential-retail development planned for Downtown's Industrial District.

Slated for a one-acre property at 601 S. Central Avenue, the project would consist of an eight-story building featuring 225 market rate apartments, 11 units of very low income housing, approximately 12,000 square feet of retail space and underground parking for 305 vehicles.

The rendering shows a contemporary mid-rise structure, highlighted by a cut-out in the facade that opens to an interior courtyard.  The sharp corner at the southeast property line is used to create an outdoor plaza.

Ownership records link the project site to the Klein Family, which also controls the Factory Place Arts Complex.  The property is currently improved with a small shopping center.

Four-Story Development Tops Out at 1st & Fairfax

The project includes 45 apartments and ground-floor retail space.

The wood-and-concrete frame of a small mixed-use development near The Grove is now complete. The four-story development, which comes from local real estate firm Conroy Commercial, replaces an auto body repair shop at 1st Street and Fairfax Avenue.  City records indicate the building will feature 45 residential units atop 1,258 square feet of ground-floor commercial space above a basement parking garage. Ovalle Architects, a Long Beach-based firm, designed the contemporary low-rise structure.
