Upcoming mixed-use development in Koreatown, Los Angeles.

Upcoming mixed-use development in Koreatown, Los Angeles.

These upcoming mixed-use developments – all near Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority Purple Line’s Wilshire/Western station, the Wiltern Theatre and innumerable restaurants and shops – represent developers’ still-strong love affair with transit-oriented investment. The Purple Line expansion, currently underway, will likely boost foot traffic for local businesses and link Koreatown to Century City and Westwood. These projects also highlight the city’s growth upward, as 3700 Wilshire will be one of Mid-Wilshire’s tallest buildings. The 700 S. Manhattan Place complex will add some affordable housing units in the increasingly expensive neighborhood.
