The Elysian Valley Riverfront Campus, now rising on the 2900 block of Allesandro Street, is repurposing two existing buildings and redeveloping a formerly vacant lot with a three-story structure featuring 40 live/work dwellings around a landscaped central courtyard.  The project also includes 8,000 square feet of groud-floor commercial space, as well as 8 units of low-income housing.

Santa Monica-based architecture firm KFA is designing the low-rise campus, which will feature a direct connection to the L.A. River.

A completion date is unclear.
