In what has become a common occurrence on the western edge of Koreatown, an auto-oriented shopping center is slated to give way for a dense mixed-use development.
Last weeks, plans were filed with the City of Los Angeles for the construction of a new residential-retail complex on a 2.2-acre property at 3525 W. 8th Street. According to a case filing from the Department of City Planning (LADCP), the project will consist of a seven-story structure featuring 367 residential units and an unspecified quantity of ground-level commercial floor area.
The property, bounded by 8th Street, Serrano and Oxford Avenues, is currently developed with a squat retail complex and an associated surface parking lot. Both would likely be demolished in favor of the new mixed-use complex.
LADCP record's point to Rescore, a Florida-based real estate investment firm, as the project's developer.
Additional details about the proposed development are unavailable at this point in time.
The project joins several similar developments now underway to the northwest at Wilshire Boulevard's intersections with Hobart Avenue and Harvard Boulevard.
