2016-3576-EIR 2016121002


Project Address: 668 S. Alameda Street, 1516-1570 Industrial Street, and 675 Mill Street, Los Angeles, CA 90021

Community Plan Area: Central City North

Council District:14 - Huizar

Project Description: The Project Site is currently developed with the Showa Marine & Cold Storage facility, which comprises four buildings with a total area of approximately 131,350 sf. The existing buildings range from two- to three-stories in height and were constructed between 1984 and 2001. All existing on-site uses would be removed to implement the Project. The Project would include 475 live/work units totaling approximately 516,101 sf of live/work floor area, and approximately 61,200 sf of ground floor commercial uses. The live/work use would include an affordable housing component, fitness facility, clubhouse, residential lobby and gallery space. Commercial uses would include approximately 15,815 sf of arts and production/commercial space, a 15,102 square-foot full-service grocery store, 9,943 sf of commercial/retail space, 16,140 sf for restaurant, café, or bar uses, and 4,200 sf of other supporting space. The restaurants and retail uses would be directly accessible from Industrial Street with individual street entrances. A plaza and sidewalk “bump-out” extensions with landscaping, tables, and patio seating, as well as two paseos connecting Industrial Street to Mill Street, would complement the retail/restaurant uses and would be available for public use. The Project would be seven stories above grade with a maximum building height of 85 feet. A total of 842 parking spaces would be provided within a four level parking structure with three levels below grade and one level at grade. The overall floor-to-area ratio (FAR) would be approximately 3.55:1.
