LA City Council Approves Marlton Square Redevelopment Plan

LA City Council Approves Marlton Square Redevelopment Plan

The City of Los Angeles will enter into an exclusive negotiating agreement with Hudson Pacific Properties for the redevelopment of the Marlton Square site in the Baldwin Hills submarket. The Los Angeles City Council approved the agreement at a recent meeting. Hudson Pacific’s bid was chosen over competing proposals from South LA Studios, Nvision Development Group and Harridge Development Group.

According to Urbanize Los Angeles, the new development located on 5.7 acres near the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza mall, would include a pair of office buildings, a grocery store, a 10,000-square-foot food incubator and an urban farm. Perkins & Will and Agency Artifact are designing the project.

Marlton Square, originally known as Santa Barbara Plaza featuring local businesses and department stores, has gradually declined over the years. Part of the site has already been developed into a Kaiser Permanente Facility and an affordable housing complex. Hudson Pacific will be responsible for guiding the project through the city entitlement process and environmental review.
