The Los Angeles City Council today unanimously approved an eight-story building proposed for the Fashion District.
The project at 11th and Main streets would bring 379 apartments (including 42 moderate-income units) and roughly 26,000 square feet of retail and office space on the ground floor.
The building, designed by MVE+Partners, would have long balconies and a public central plaza, which would host outdoor dining.
Developed by an LLC with connections to Jade Enterprises, 1100 South Main has been in the works since 2016.
The project’s previously announced timeline anticipated construction beginning in 2019, with completion slated for 2021.
The Fashion District is growing. A planned redevelopment of the Southern California Flower Market would add a 15-story building to the complex (the flower market would continue to operate). The 10-acre City Market project, which would bring a hotel, offices and manufacturing space, and nearly 1,000 apartments, received city council approval in June.
Correction: An earlier version of this story mistakenly identified the moderate income units as very low income units. They are not.
