Mixed-Use Project in Downtown Los Angeles is Completed

9/13/19

LA Plaza Village, a mixed-use development in downtown Los Angeles, has opened to the public. The project is a venture of Trammell Crow Company (TCC), its subsidiary High Street Residential, the Cesar Chavez Foundation and Principal Real Estate Investors, in a public-private partnership with LA Plaza de Cultura y Artes Museum and the County of Los Angeles.

LA Plaza Village, which is inspired by a modern interpretation of a Mexican hillside town, features 355 apartments, 20% of which are affordable housing units, 43k sf of retail space and several public open spaces. The project spans a total of 425k sf across two full city blocks and includes four buildings that range from five to eight stories.

In addition to nearly an acre of public open space, a pedestrian paseo lined with landscaping and retail shops passes through the development, linking LA Plaza Village to the Fort Moore Memorial, Olvera Street and Union Station. At the mouth of the paseo is a symbol of the unifying theme of the project, a specimen Sycamore tree, inspired by the historic El Aliso tree that stood in the Los Angeles basin for centuries.

“LA Plaza Village is as much about connectivity and open space for the public as it is about a needed supply of market rate and affordable residential apartments. The project, with its 43k sf of retail space and pedestrian paseo, was designed to bring people together and honor the history of this neighborhood and the vitality of the Mexican-American traditions that LA Plaza Village is a part of,” said Brad Cox of Trammell Crow Company. “A tremendous amount of thought and research went into this project from a cultural perspective and it’s our hope that LA Plaza Village becomes another symbol of the vibrant blend of culture and history that makes up this area of Downtown LA.”

The Cesar Chavez Foundation is moving its 4k sf headquarters to LA Plaza Village early next year. Johnson Fain, whose headquarters is blocks from the project, served as architect. In addition to new residents, restaurateurs and retailers, LA Plaza Village is also home to La Plaza Cocina, a 2.7k sf museum, retail space and teaching kitchen that is a project of LA Plaza de Cultura y Artes, an institution dedicated to the culture of the Mexican-American experience in Los Angeles.

Over the course of LA Plaza Village’s four-year construction period, the project has employed more than 3,400 employees, including nearly 1,000 local area workers, and 671 apprentices, including 218 local apprentices. The general contractor is Morley Builders.

The High Street Residential and Trammell Crow Company team involved in this project included Brad Cox, Greg Ames, Christina Lee, Doreen Liou, Clyde Wright, Carlos Diaz, Abbey Ehman and Alex Valente. A CBRE team lead by Derrick Moore is leasing the development’s retail space, which includes a number of shops, restaurants and a neighborhood serving drugstore.
