A mixed-use development planned near the Expo and Blue Lines in Downtown Los Angeles has taken another step forward, with the release today of the project's proposed mitigated negative declaration.

The seven-story development, which comes from a limited liability company called The Condor, would create up to 177 apartments and 2,500 square feet of ground-floor retail on a property at 1334 S. Flower Street in South Park.  The project could also trade six planned live/work apartments at its street level to increase the total amount of retail to 8,800 square feet.

Parking for up to 200 vehicles could be built at the ground-floor and three basement levels; proposed amenities would include a pool courtyard, a club room, a fitness center, and multiple outdoor decks.

DFH Architects is designing the mid-rise structure, which would preserve a 1919 commercial building and incorporate it into the new development.

Construction of 1334 Flower is expected to occur over 36 months, starting in July 2019 and finishing in July 2022.

A similar mixed-use development is planned nearby at 1400 S. Flower Street.
