After much debate, the Los Angeles Planning Commission approved a proposal for what would be the first high-rise building in Downtown’s Fashion District.

The 33-story residential tower at 222 East 7th Street, dubbed 7th & Maple, now needs the final stamp of approval from City Council, Curbed reported.

Jointly developed project from Newport Beach-based Realm Group and Urban Offerings would have 452 residential units — 50 of which will be for very low income residents — and 13,655 square feet of commercial space.

Skid Row residents have voiced opposition to the development, according to Curbed, claiming it will drive prices higher and force them out of the area.

The Los Angeles Community Action Network already filed an appeal against the project.

Realm Group is currently developing the nearby Bixel Tower, which is slated to have 422 apartments across 36 stories. The group also has projects in Anaheim, Pomona and Palmdale. Urban Offerings develops similar projects, including a creative, mixed-use building at 755 Los Angeles St. [Curbed] – Natalie Hoberman
