Over two years after breaking ground, the office and retail component of the immense NoHo West development is now fully framed.
The currently-under construction buildings - centered on a pedestrian corridor cutting north-to-south between Erwin and Oxnard Streets - will provide 190,000 square feet of commercial space, including a gym, a supermarket, and a multiplex cinema. An eight-story, 2,600-car parking structure is located along the western property line, buffering the project from the adjacent SR-170 Freeway.
At the heart of the property, a former Macy's department store - the one remaining building from the former Laurel Plaza shopping mall - is being transformed into a four-story, 500,000-square-foot office building.
The retail and office buildings are being designed by STIR Architecture. Completion is anticipated in Spring 2020.
Though the exact tenant mix has not been announced, Trader Joe's will reportedly operate a store at NoHo West.
The second phase of the project, which has yet to begin construction, would rise on what are now dirt lots along the eastern property line. Plans call for an array of three-to-six-story buildings featuring 742 apartments and basement parking.
GPI Companies, based out of Los Angeles, also owns the Sunset Boulevard building which currently houses Amoeba Music, and is seeking approvals to redevelop the property with a 28-story apartment tower.
