Mixed-Use Makeover Planned For Mateo Street Site

The proposed project at 1024 Mateo St. 

More than two years after plans were first filed, there are new details on the proposed transformation of a 1.43-acre site in the Arts District. Documents filed with the Downtown Los Angeles Neighborhood Council’s Planning and Land Use committee offer fresh renderings and breakdowns for Dart Partners and Mateo Arts’ mixed-use project.

A nine-story building at 1024 Mateo St. would replace an industrial edifice, and would have 106 live/work condos (with nine set aside for affordable housing) and nearly 120,000 square feet of commercial space; about 27,000 square feet would be used for retail and restaurants, with the remainder holding offices. Renderings from Gensler show a glass-fronted building wrapped in balconies, with a courtyard in the middle of the third floor and a landscaped amenities deck on the roof.

No budget or timeline have been announced.
