Architectural plans submitted to the Los Angeles City Council have revealed the design of a proposed 11-acre mixed-use complex near the Expo Line's La Cienega/Jefferson Station.

Under plans from San Francisco-based real estate firm Carmel partners, the Jefferson and La Cienega Project would replace a longtime radio broadcast facility with 1.9-million square feet of programmed floor area.  In total, the proposed development would include 1,218 multifamily residential units, approximately 200,000 square feet of office space, and a combined 100,000 square feet of of ground-level floor area devoted to a grocery store, shops and restaurants.

Plans also call for a substantial amount of open space including landscaped courtyards within residential buildings and a .68-acre central park.

The project is being designed by an architectural team consisting of TCA Architects, Solomon Cordwell Buenz (SCB) and Mia Lehrer + Associates.  Elevation plans indicate that the project's low-rise buildings would feature a variety of exterior materials, including wood-grain siding, board-formed concrete, metal siding and stucco.

SCB is reportedly spearheading the design of the proposed 29-story tower, which at 323 feet in height, would easily become the tallest building in the Baldwin Hills area.  Renderings portray a rectangular structure, clad with glass and metal panels in a offset tile pattern.

The development's approvals are currently being appealed by a group known as the La Cienega Heights Association, which asserts that the project will have a negative impact on traffic congestion in the surrounding neighborhood.

A timeline for Jefferson and La Cienega is currently unclear.
