In the midst of the competition over who will get to redevelop Lincoln Heights Jail at 421 N. Avenue 19, the Office of the Chief Legislative Analyst has recommended Lincoln Property Company and Fifteen Group for the task, Urbanize reported.

The Los Angeles City Council is scheduled to vote on a lucky winner on November 1. It has been soliciting proposals for the five-story, 230,000-square-foot site since 2016.

LPC and Fifteen Group submitted a proposal to redevelop the 1930s jail into a 3.2-acre site with 268,000 square feet of residential space (including affordable housing), 220,000 square feet of commercial space, 57,000 square feet of manufacturing and retail and over four acres of open space. A rooftop garden, landscaped central walkway, and amphitheater would also take shape.

The firms tapped Rios Clementi hale Studios to design the site, dubbed “Lincoln Heights Makers District,” abutting the L.A. River.

LPC has been competing with CIM group and nonprofit organization WORKS. CIM Group proposed “The Linc,” which would include office space, multifamily residential units, low-income housing, retail and garden space. WORKS wants to remove the structure altogether and build 113 units of moderate income and permanent supportive housing in its place. [Urbanize]Natalie Hoberman
