BIlled as West Hollywood's first ground-up office development since the Pacific Design Center's Red Building, the project will incorporate the 1936 grocery store as its centerpiece. The proposed developed would raze a surface parking lot adjacent to the historic building for a four-story structure featuring creative offices above ground-floor restaurant space.
R&A Architecture + Design is designing the project, which would feature setbacks and outdoor terraces along the property's Santa Monica Boulevard frontage.
A statement released by the West Hollywood Hollywood Preservation alliance praises the French Market development for retaining the historic elements of the existing building.
