After ten years, one of City West's most conspicuous parking lots is slated to give way for a mixed-use complex.

Amidi Group, a Redwood-based real estate and development firm, is preparing to break ground on the long-awaited expansion of TenTen Wilshire.  The project would consist of a nine-story building at 1027 Wilshire Boulevard, replacing a 37,000-square-foot parking lot with 376 live/work apartments, commercial space, and amenities.

The $180-million project, originally proposed in 2006 as a 52-story tower, was put on hold following the global financial crisis.  Amidi later revived the development as the more modest mid-rise edifice reflected in the current plan.

El Segundo-based Bijan & Associates is designing the 1027 Wilshire, which will feature amenities such as a rooftop pool deck, a fitness center, a theater room and an 800-car parking garage.

Completion is anticipated in 2020.

The original TenTen Wilshire, which opened across the street in 2007, repurposed the former 16-story headquarters of the Signal Oil Company as rental housing.

Last year, the Wilshire Grand claimed the title of the West Coast's tallest building, with a slender spire that peaks 1,100 feet above Downtown Los Angeles.  But a newly proposed tower just up the street seems to be gunning for its crown at the highest tower west of the Mississippi River.

Last week, Chinese developer Shenzhen New World Group filed plans with the City of Los Angeles to redevelop the 1980s L.A. Grand Hotel Downtown at 333 S.
