The Southern California Flower Market, no longer fresh as a daisy, could be redeveloped into a mixed-use complex with affordable housing.

Council member Jose Huizar, of the 14th District, filed a motion last week to rezone the 3.8-acre site at 755 Wall Street for commercial use, paving the way for a new development, Urbanize reported.

The redevelopment of the site would “revitalize the area,” provide about 500 new jobs and generate tax revenue, the motion said.

The flower market would keep its operations on the ground floor, but the existing buildings are functionally obsolete, Huizar wrote. [Urbanize]Cathaleen Chen
