Another major new development in Los Angeles’ Chinatown neighborhood was submitted Thursday to the city’s planning commission, a proposal to construct a 243-unit live-work space adjacent to the LA State Historic Park.

Applicant Janice Sican applied for a mixed-use development of 243 live-work units at 1457 N. Main St., comprised of 117,000 square feet – with 43 percent going to residential. Sican is seeking permission to exceed the property’s limit of 15 percent of the floor-area-ratio going to residential.

Urbanize LA first reported on the application.

There has been a handful of significant recent developments in this swath of China, which is part of the city’s Cornfield Arroyo Specific plan, as a former industrial and freight rail yard site gradually transitions into residential and office use space.

The City Council in March approved a seven-story, 724-unit residential project by developer Atlas Capital abutting Chinatown’s Spring Street gold line station.

And a block away from the proposed 243-unit live-work building, Portland, Oregon-based developer NPB Capital applied for a 285-unit, 266,000-mixed use project at 200 Mesnagers Street. The City Council has not yet approved the project. [Urbanize LA]Matthew Blake
