A leasing website unveils new renderings of Alloy, the mixed-use high-rise development from Carmel Partners now rising in the Arts District.

The project, which replaced an industrial complex at 530 S. Mateo Street, is the first high-rise development in the Arts District. The roughly 1-million-square-foot development, located directly south of the 4th Street Bridge, will include a total of 475 live/work apartments, approximately 127,000 square feet of offices, and 18,000 square feet of commercial space, according to its website.

Works Progress Architecture and Solomon Cordwell Buenz are designing the project, which includes a 35-story residential tower and a six-story mid-rise structure containing offices and commercial uses. Terrace decks will adorn both buildings, while an abandoned rail spur at the rear of the property will be turned into a pedestrian paseo running between Mateo and Santa Fe Avenue.

The office building, dubbed Forge at Alloy, will include ceiling heights ranging from 14 to 19 feet and sit atop three levels of parking, per a brochure. The retail space, located below the offices, will front on the new paseo.

Although the tower is currently the tallest in the Arts District, a larger high-rise complex designed by Bjarke Ingels Group is in the works nearby, and prolific developer Onni Group is planning its own high-rise just south of 7th Street.

Carmel, based in San Francisco, has previously built a 30-story high-rise at the formerly low-slung intersection of La Cienega and Jefferson Boulevards in West Adams, and has plans for a similar high-rise planned just south of Beverly Hills city limits on La Cienega Boulevard and new apartments in Sawtelle.
