The seemingly unstoppable Geoffrey Palmer is planning another large residential complex near the 110 Freeway at the edge of Downtown Los Angeles, despite the fact that the City of Los Angeles is suing him for negligence because of the massive fire at his last one.

The new seven-story project, dubbed Ferrante, is planned for a 9.6-acre site at 1000 West Temple Street, Urbanize reports.

The planned project includes 1,500 residential units, 30,000 square feet of ground-floor commercial space and parking for up to 2,606 vehicles. The site is bounded by Temple, Beaudry Avenue, Mignonette Street and the Harbor Freeway.

A ten-story office building and a four-story parking structure that are currently on the site would be demolished under Palmer’s plan. [ULA] – Hannah Miet
