City Council Approves Next Step for the DTLA Streetcar

The Downtown Los Angeles Streetcar, a signature project for 14th District Councilmember Jose Huizar and the Bringing Back Broadway initiative, took a step forward with the unanimous approval today of a new report by the Los Angeles City Council.  This action allows the City to begin formal discussions with Metro, which has earmarked $200 million for the project through the transportation sales tax imposed passed through Measure M.

Onni Group’s updated plan for the redevelopment of the Times Mirror Square complex has been unveiled through an initial study published by the Los Angeles Department of City Planning.
The project, which first emerged in late 2016, calls for demolishing a 1970s expansion of the historic Los Angeles Times headquarters and the construction of modern high-rise towers in its place.  Onni would also retain and rehabilitated the original 1930s and 1940s buildings as creative office space.
Architecture firm A.C. Martin is designing the project, which calls for towers of 37 and 53 stories along Broadway between 1st and 2nd Streets.  The new construction would create 1,127 residential units, seated atop approximately 34,000 square feet of street-fronting commercial space and a parking podium.
