Blossom Plaza L.A.


  • The $100 million development, located in Chinatown, includes 237 apartments. The low-rise includes a mixture of studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom floor plans, including 53 units reserved as affordable housing. The project also features 21 townhouse-style apartments along its southern perimeter.

    Situated at the intersection of Broadway and College Street, the nearly two-acre development site lies directly north of the Gold Line’s Chinatown Station. Blossom Plaza offers a direct connection between Broadway and the elevated Metro stop via a pedestrian paseo which bisects the property. The center passageway includes more than 20,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space.

    The design of the low-rise complex were crafted by Los Angeles-based architecture firms Johnson Fain and Togawa Smith Martin. The buildings’ paseo feeds into a richly landscaped plaza at the foot of the adjacent train station.

    The arrival of Blossom Plaza may portend a more upmarket future for Chinatown, which has missed out on the residential construction boom currently enveloping much of Downtown Los Angeles. The clearest example of this impending transformation may be College Station, a proposed mixed-use development which rises south of Chinatown Station.
