Architecture firm Johnson Fain has announced the opening of Blossom Plaza, a mixed-use development adjacent to the Metro Gold Line's Chinatown Station.

Located at 900 N. Broadway, the project consists of two five-story structures featuring 237 apartments, of which 20% are reserved as affordable housing.  A paseo lined by approximately 20,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space cuts between the buildings, connecting to a large plaza adjacent to the elevated light rail station.  Parking for residents, retail customers and Metro passengers is situated in a garage beneath the development.

The design of Blossom Plaza draws on traditional Chinese architecture, while also incorporating contemporary shapes and colors.

The project, which is targeting LEED Gold certification, was developed by Forest City Enterprises.  The Ohio-based property management company is also in the midst of construction on two similar buildings in the South Park neighborhood.
