A tipster sends word that a large dirt pit has taken form at the southeast corner of San Vicente Boulevard and La Brea Avenue, signaling that construction is now underway for a new retail center.

The project, which spans approximately 1.3 acres, would consist of a two-story structure featuring 75,000 square feet of retail space and approximately 337 parking spaces.

According to a leasing brochure, the project is being developed by Los Angeles-based real estate firm CIM Group.

Delivery is expected sometime in 2017.

Four-Story Development Tops Out at 1st & Fairfax

The project includes 45 apartments and ground-floor retail space.

The wood-and-concrete frame of a small mixed-use development near The Grove is now complete. The four-story development, which comes from local real estate firm Conroy Commercial, replaces an auto body repair shop at 1st Street and Fairfax Avenue.  City records indicate the building will feature 45 residential units atop 1,258 square feet of ground-floor commercial space above a basement parking garage. Ovalle Architects, a Long Beach-based firm, designed the contemporary low-rise structure.
