A pair of small industrial buildings located just east of the Los Angeles Convention Center could be redeveloped with a mixed-use development featuring a hotel and housing.

The project, which was submitted earlier today to the City of Los Angeles, calls for razing the existing structures at 1323-1331 S. Flower Street to make way for the construction of an 11-story building featuring a 132-room hotel, 48 market-rate apartments, and restaurant space at the ground and roof levels.

Requested entitlements include a transfer of floor area rights in order to achieve the approximately 118,000 square feet of built space proposed, as well as mandatory site plan review.

Property records list the owner of the approximately half-acre site as an entity called Tishbees, LLC, which is based out of the same Boyle Heights address as the company A Plus Fabrics. Elliot Tishbi is listed as the principal for both companies.

The mid-rise hotel is planned just south of Metro’s Pico Station, and in close proximity to several other proposed hotels near the Convention Center. These include a multi-building project that would incorporate the historic Morrison Hotel on Hope Street, and Lightstone Group’s two-tower Fig + Pico development.

Two large apartment buildings are also planned for the stretch of Flower Street to the south of Pico Boulevard.
