Last month, the Los Angeles Daily News reported that construction is finally underway for a mixed-use development at the site of the paper's former headquarters.

The project from Fairfield Residential, located on a 4.5-acre site at 21221 Oxnard Street, will consist of 379 apartments in a sprawling five-story complex.  Previous reports have budgeted the development at $70-million.

The second phase of the project, which does not have an announced timeline, would create a seven-story office tower on the property.

Directly across the street, plans were recently filed for a similar development consisting of apartments, a hotel and a medical office tower.

Apartments With Retail Planned West of the Grove

Low-rise building would feature 50 apartments over ground-floor commercial uses.

An auto body repair shop and two small commercial buildings located near the Grove could make way for a residential-retail complex.

Earlier today, plans were filed with the City of Los Angeles to construct a mixed-use project at 8000-8014 W. 3rd Street in the Beverly Grove neighborhood.  Plans call for a 50-unit building - including five affordable apartments - with approximately 7,250 square feet of ground-floor commercial space.
