A new set of architectural renderings depict the mixed-use makeover now underway at the Arts District's landmark Alameda Square.

The 30-acre industrial complex, highlighted by its trio of hulking 98-year-old warehouses, is being rebranded by owner Atlas Capital Group as ROW DTLA, a two-million-square-foot campus consisting of creative offices, green spaces, shops and restaurants.

According to a marketing brochure from the Runyon Group, a Los Angeles-based real estate firm that is partnering with Atlas Capital on the project, plans call for approximately 1.3-million square feet of office space capable of housing as many as 20,000 employees.  Each building offers 70,000-square-foot floor plates, featuring high ceilings, sandblasted walls and restored windows.

Current occupants include the retailers Splendid, Ella Moss and GoJane.

Industry Partners, a Santa Monica-based commercial real estate brokerage, is working to lease the office space.

For ROW DTLA's 200,000 square feet of ground-floor commercial space the developers are targeting an eclectic mixture of restaurant options, as well as "over 100 of the most progressive luxury brands, avant-garde fashion designs and unique merchants."

Additional features include more than 20,000 square feet of event space, over 30,000 square feet of art display space, and approximately five acres of landscaped open space.

Future tenants will be served by a 10-story, 5,000-car parking garage which was recently completed on the southern edge of the property.

According to the Runyon Group website, ROW DTLA is expected to open in Summer 2016.

The sprawling mixed-use development - which is being designed by Rios Clementi Hale Studios - is one of numerous adaptive reuse projects underway in the Arts District, including similar industrial-to-office conversions of former factories for the Ford Motor Company and Coca Cola.

City Looks to Update Land Use and Transportation Along Rail-to-River Corridor

A freight railway that cuts through South L.A. is set for rebirth as an active transportion corridor.

In 2012, Metro began exploring the possibility of transforming a segment of a former freight rail right-of-way that cuts through the heart of South Los Angeles into an active transportation project.  The project, now known as the Rail-to-River corridor, would convert the Harbor Subdivision - which runs east-to-west along Florence and Slauson Avenues - for use by pedestrians and cyclists.

To capitalize on this investment, the Cit
