A plan to redevelop and expand the Southern California Flower Market in DTLA into a mixed-use complex received approval from the Los Angeles City Planning Commission. The proposed nearly four-acre project at 7th Street, Wall Street, and Maple Avenue would replace part of the existing Flower Market with a 15-story tower.
The plan includes 323 residential units, 64,363 square feet of office space, 63,785 square feet of wholesale market space, 4,385 square feet of retail space, 13,420 square feet of food and beverage space, 21,295 square feet of event space, and 681 parking spaces.
An existing 185,000-square-foot structure would be removed, but a more than 206,000-square-foot north building would be retained and renovated. The design plan by Brooks + Scarpa encompasses a series of ground-level pedestrian passageways connecting the property, while the more than 200-foot-tall main building features three cascading masses topped by terrace decks.
The project must still secure entitlements from the City Council’s PLUM Committee.
