The Arts District has become a draw for tech and media tenants and for renters. Now, Los Angeles County is getting in on the action.

The county selected Sawtelle-based Urban Offerings to develop its 4th and Hewitt mixed-use project, which will include 232,000 square feet of creative office space, affordable housing for artists, and 11,000 square feet of retail space, according to Curbed. Office Untitled is architect.

The redevelopment project would replace the existing offices of the Department of Public Social Services at 813 East 4th Place, along with a separate parking garage. Urban Offerings is expected to enter into a 99-year ground lease for the two properties.

Plans for the project include 43,000 square feet of office for DPSS and about 870 parking spaces, according to the report.

Among the bigger-name tenants that have moved to the Arts District recently are Spotify, which just expanded its lease in the At Mateo complex; and WeWork, which took over the entire Maxwell redevelopment project at 405 Mateo Street. [Curbed]Alison Stateman
