With completion fast approaching for the first phase of the immense NoHo West complex, work is now underway for new housing along the eastern perimeter of 25-acre site.


The project - located on the former site of the failed Laurel Plaza shopping center - is wrapped by Erwin Street, Radford Avenue, Laurel Canyon Boulevard, and Oxnard Street.  The initial phase of the development, on pace to open in Spring 2020, consists of: 

  • 190,000 square feet of retail and restaurant place; 
  • an 2,600-car parking garage; and 
  • 500,000 square feet of office space - located in a repurposed Macy's department store.

Several tenants have already been announced for the property, including 24 Hour Fitness, Fantastic Sams, Jersey Mike's, Regal Cinemas, Robeks, See's Candies, Starbucks, and Trader Joe's.

The office and retail components of the project are being developed as a joint venture between GPI Companies and Merlone Geier Partners, with STIR Architecture providing design services.


The second phase of the project - called the Alexan NoHo West - is a joint venture between Trammell Crow Residential and Barings Real Estate.

Plans call for a pair of podium-type apartment buildings - rising up to six stories in height - containing 642 studio, one-, and two-bedroom dwellings above basement parking.

AO is designing the project, according to city records.
