Another storied Downtown Los Angeles building could get the creative office treatment.

L.A. developer Urban Offerings wants to redevelop part of the Norton Building in the Historic Core, a five-story structure that it acquired for $17.55 million in September, property records show.

Urban Offerings will partner with Van Nuys-based investor ESI Ventures for the project at 755 South Los Angeles Street, Urbanize reported from a presentation submitted to the Downtown Los Angeles Neighborhood Council’s Planning and Land Use Committee.

The project would bring  60,000 square feet of offices and about 43,0000 square feet of retail and restaurants to the century-old structure. Roof space would be used, as would a penthouse structure.
