The Los Angeles Department of Building and Safety has issued construction permits for the proposed adaptive reuse of an office tower near MacArthur Park

The 13-story building, located at 2500 Wilshire Boulevard, is owned by Jamison Services, Inc., one of the largest private landlords in Los Angeles.  Jamison Services intends to transform the upper levels of the 230,000-square-foot structure into 248 residential units while retaining existing ground-floor retail offerings.

The project's construction permits are valued at $17.6 million, according to the Department of Building and Safety.

City records indicate that Corbel Architects is designing the project.

The 2500 Wilshire development sits directly across the street from the Zinc Apartments, a 152-unit mixed-use building now under construction.  Jamison Services is planning a ground-up development of its own on a parking lot which abuts the current office tower.

The past five years have seen Jamison Services gradually convert its underperforming office buildings along the Wilshire corridor into apartments, part of the company's larger pivot towards residential development.
