Council member calls for development in the oldest part of LA

DTLA's Jose Huizar wants to revamp a parking lot next to the El Pueblo de Los Ángeles monument

One of L.A.’s historic monuments may be getting a more modern neighbor.

DTLA Council member Jose Huizar is urging the city to seek development options for a parking lot next to the El Pueblo de Los Ángeles historic monument, citing a desire to continue Downtown’s recent revitalization, according to Urbanize.

The parking lot is located the southwest corner of Main Street and Cesar Chavez Avenue. Huizar’s proposal emphasized that any development must still contain the same number of parking spaces.

“The historic park brings Mexican, Italian, and Chinese culture to 2 million visitors a year,” he wrote in a motion put before the city. “As the city continues to support the infill and reimagining of downtown property, this parking lot should be considered as a potential site for development.”

Nearby, Trammell Crow Company’s 355-unit mixed-use development is well on its way to completion after breaking ground in July. [Urbanize]Cathaleen Chen
