Los Angeles County and Trammell Crow Company broke ground on a $453 million county office complex in Koreatown on Wednesday, according to Curbed.

The first phase of the Vermont Corridor project includes a 21-story office tower and 10-story parking garage that will replace a low-rise vacant building and parking lot on county-owned land at 510 S. Vermont Avenue. Gensler designed the complex. It will house offices for the L.A. County Department of Mental Health and the Department of Workforce Development, Aging, and Community Service.

Developer Meta Housing will later convert a neighboring 12-story county-owned building into a 172-unit apartment building with ground-floor retail. Meta will also build a six-story, 72-unit affordable senior housing development there, according to Curbed. Meta looks to break ground by mid-2019.

L.A. County approved the project in August 2016 and secured $302 million in financing for the project from a public-private partnership four months ago.  [Curbed] – Dennis Lynch
