Los Angeles, California
Located at the intersection of 5th Street and Western Avenue in Los Angeles, the California Market is a retail center totaling 130,000 GSF over three levels with parking for 470 cars in a two-level below-grade garage. The project is distinctive in its design with the use of bold contemporary forms and perimeter landscaping within the urban setting. The inner courtyard and roof deck offers an open-air space that gives users a rest from the bustle of Koreatown. The deck has outdoor seating, paved areas, planting, trees and unique lighting to create an aesthetically pleasing and functional design. The east side of the project, fronting on Oxford Street – a predominantly residential environment – has been designed to be compatible with the existing apartment character of the neighborhood.
