South Los Angeles may soon see more major changes in its commercial landscape.

Developer Fred Leeds wants to acquire and redevelop the city-owned Marlton Square, a 22-acre shopping district in Baldwin Hills, and he has the support of L.A. City Council President Herb Wesson.

Wesson filed a motion last week urging the city to negotiate with the developer in the sale of about seven acres of the decaying plaza bound by Marlton Avenue, Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, Buckingham Road, and Santa Rosalia Drive, Urbanize first reported. The land is owned by the successor agency to the now-defunct CRA LA.

Leeds is already in possession of 2.8 acres within the site. If the city agrees to Wesson’s request, Leeds would be able to develop a more-than-10-acre commercial retail center that’d “complement the adjacent Kaiser Permanente development and Buckingham Seniors Housing development,” his motion reads.

Nearby, developer Capri Capital Partners has another major mixed-use redevelopment in the works at the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza. [Urbanize]Cathaleen Chen
