The Los Angeles City Planning Commission recently voted to approve the new mixed-use development project located at the iconic Taix French Restaurant site in Echo Park. Embracing the neighborhood’s rich architectural history and progressive building design changes, the redesign introduces a fresh take on this unique development by incorporating architecture that is rooted in geographical and cultural context. The new design will thoughtfully engage and support the surrounding community in terms of building scale and vernacular.
This six-story buildings will feature 170 market-rate apartment units, including 24 affordable units, in addition to a 13,000 SF of street-fronting commercial space and basement parking for 220 vehicles. The commercial space takes advantage of the busy foot traffic of the Sunset Boulevard and Resevoir Street while the paseo creates a welcoming environment for residents and visitors alike.
