Now seven months into construction, the 25-acre NoHo West development is making slow-but-steady progress.

The project, a joint venture between Merlone Geier Partners and GPI Companies, is reimagining the former Laurel Plaza shopping center at 6150 Laurel Canyon Boulevard as a mixed-use complex with a mix of low-rise and mid-rise buildings.  Plans call for three-to-six-story structures on a current parking lot, resulting in 742 residential units and 190,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space.  Proposed commercial uses include a gym, a supermarket, and a multiplex supermarket.

The lone remnant from Laurel Plaza - a hulking four-story Macy's department store - is being transformed into approximately 500,000 square feet of office space.

STIR Architecture is designing the project, which will include a retail paseo cutting north-to-south between Erwin and Oxnard streets.

Completion of NoHo West is expected in 2019.
