Foot Locker is planning to open a three-story flagship Jordan Brand store in Downtown Los Angeles in the Broadway Corridor.

The footwear chain filed an application with the city’s planning department to open a store at 620 S. Broadway, the former home of Schaber’s Cafeteria.

The building, which planning documents show is owned by Khosrow Golian, will have 8,000 square feet of retail across two floors with an exercise and locker room on the second floor, Urbanize reported.

There will also be an open-air basketball court on the roof complete with bleachers and a snack bar. Part of the court will be transparent, meaning it will act as a skylight for the level beneath.

Planners are hoping to preserve most of the building’s original façade, opting to put the famous Jordan logo over a window to keep from obscuring important historic details on the building, according to LAist.
