Developer Races for 670 Mesquit Approvals

[  Los Angeles, California USA  ]

The 670 Mesquit mixed-use project is located in downtown Los Angeles, part of the city’s Art’s District and situated along the Los Angeles river.

As envisioned the project will include approximately one million SF, as  envisioned to include two connected 30-floor buildings, retail space, restaurants, two small hotels, 250 for-rent residential units and 800,000 SF of office space.

The 670 Mesquit project is the subject of a March ballot measure – the Neighborhood Integrity Initiative.  The initiative if approved by voters will place a 2-year ban on zoning changes that accommodate large-scale construction projects.   If the developer can secure necessary approvals, it is possible to avoid the ban if placed by voters.

The development is a project VE Equities (Vella Group), led by Justin Ehrlich and Zach Vella.
