The string of recent Downtown developments has now spread west to the Industrial District.

Earlier today, plans were filed with the City of Los Angeles to constructed a mixed-use project at 601 S. Central Avenue.  According to a case filing from the Department of City Planning, the proposed development would feature 236 apartments above 12,000 square feet of retail space and a 305-car parking garage.

The applicant has requested several discretionary approvals for the project, including a density bonus in exchange for 11 residential units for very low income households.

The one-acre site is currently home to the Triangle Plaza shopping center, which would be demolished for the new development.  Ownership records link the property to Howard B. Klein, the developer behind the Arts District's Factory Place Arts Complex.

Recent months have seen a slew of developers announce plans for major developments east across Alameda Street, highlighted by Suncal's proposed 6AM complex.

Other incursions to the east include ROW DTLA, a massive industrial center that has been repurposed with creative office space above shops and restaurants.
