Redcar Properties has applied for permits to build a four-story retail and creative office building in West Adams.
If approved, the Los Angeles-based development firm would add 50,000-60,000 square feet of space at 5760–5780 West Adams Boulevard. Architects at Rios Clementi Hale are designing the project.
Chinatown-based Redcar bought the property for $2.7 million in 2016 through an entity named 5760 West Adams Owners LLC, records show. The firm hasn’t yet filed an application with the city.
With the expansion of the Metro Expo Line, West Adams has recently seen a jump in residents, office tenants and retailers, as well as more investment in real estate.

Mansfield Avenue in West Adams just months after it won construction permits for a live/work complex on South Western Avenue a few miles away.
