The Martin Cadillac site is going to be completely re-developed by the Martin Family
The Martin Expo Town Center would put a big new residential/office/retail complex a block away from the Expo Line extension‘s Expo/Bundy station, on, somewhat poetically, the site of a Cadillac/GMC dealership. Plans first surfaced years ago, but now we’re finally seeing what it might look like, and it’s pretty dramatic. Urbanize LA says that the complex would replace the dealership with more than 500 residential units (either apartments for rent or condos), a 10-story tower with office and retail space, well over a thousand parking spaces, and a big pedestrian paseo to boot.

At a public meeting next month, prolific local developer Jason Illoulian of Faring Capital will present his company’s plans to redevelop French Market Place and an adjacent building that once housed the Voyeur and DBA clubs, reports WeHoville; Faring Capital bought the properties earlier this year. The gist is that the DBA building will stay and the French Market space will be replaced by a mid-rise mixed-user with space for restaurant, retail, and offices.
