An initial study published by the City of Los Angeles provides new information on a Stockdale Capital Partners' proposed medical office tower in Beverly Grove.

The proposed development, which would replace a Big 5 Sporting Goods store at the intersection of Wilshire and San Vicente Boulevards, calls for the construction of a 12-story structure featuring 145,000 square feet of medical office space above 418 parking stalls on four above-grade levels and 5,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space.

Designed by ZGF Architects, the proposed development would rise to a maximum height of approximately 230 feet above street level.  The property's trapezoidal footprint will result in a wedge-shaped appearance at Wilshire and San Vicente, with a series of cascading amenity decks carved into the side of the glass-clad building.

According to the project's initial study, construction is anticipated to begin in 2021 and conclude by 2023 - roughly one year behind the scheduled previously announced by Stockdale Capital Partners.

Due to the presence of Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Stockdale's proposed project is not the only medical office building planned nearby.

At the intersection of Beverly and Robertson Boulevards, West Hollywood-based developer Faring has announced plans for a 10-story "cancer center."

Other large-scale projects in the works include developer Rick Caruso's 16-story apartment tower at 333 La Cienega Boulevard, as well as a similar 19-story tower which would rise next to a church at 333 San Vicente Boulevard.
