A former medical center in West Adams will soon become a live/work complex, adding to the flurry of adaptive reuse projects taking place in Los Angeles.

CIM Group secured a construction permit to build a six-story building at 2231 South Western Avenue, on the site of the former Los Angeles Metropolitan Medical Center, Curbed reported. The hospital closed its doors in 2013 when a federal fraud case revealed the center had been billing the government for unnecessary care.

Dubbed Western Lofts, the 80,000-square-foot project will include 60 live/work units, a 3,120-square-foot restaurant with rooftop deck and subterranean parking. Renderings by David Lawrence Gray Architects portray a private balcony for each unit, and floor-to-ceiling windows.

CIM paid $9.7 million to acquire the site in August 2015, property records show.

Over on the Westside, the firm is underway on another residential project, rising on the site of a former car dealership. It’s hoping to build a five-story development with 154 apartments, 311 parking spots and 15,000 square feet of retail.

Other firms joining the adaptive reuse trend include Jamison Services and Seritage Growth Properties. While Jamison has been repurposing many of its office buildings into multifamily construction, Seritage is working on transforming the historic Sears in Santa Monica into an office campus with a beer garden and rooftop deck.
