Following Google's purchase of a 12-acre site in Playa Vista, a who's-who of name brand tenants have flooded into the area's long-struggling supply of office buildings.  Now, smaller investors are looking to capitalize on the neighborhood's rising tide.

This past summer, plans were filed with the City of Los Angeles to construct a new four-story office building one block north of the Google property.  The project would feature 6,750 square feet of leasable space, in addition to 12 parking space on its ground level.

Renderings displayed on the website of Los Angeles-based Plus Architects portray a contemporary design, featuring metal panels above a base of cinderblocks.  A balcony deck would wrap the building's third floor.

Additional details about the project are unclear.

In Inglewood, a local developer has filed plans to construct townhomes just west of La Brea Avenue. The proposed development, slated for an L-shaped property at 113-133 W. Plymouth Street, would replace 11 existing single-family residences with 20 three-story townhomes above a basement parking garage.
