ELYSIAN VALLEY — Elysian Valley residents were given extra time to comment on a proposal to build 40 units of live-work housing and more than 16,000 square-feet of commercial space in a new development that would rise several floors above the L.A. River Path.

The development in the 2900 block of Allesandro Street is one of several new projects that are larger and taller than many of the surrounding residential and industrial buildings in Elysian Valley.

Over the holidays, Elysian Valley Neighborhood Council President Steve Appleton informed residents that the public comment period on an assessment report conducted by the city had been extended until today. The assessment report found that the Allesandro project would not have an significant impacts on Elysian Valley.

The development, dubbed the “Elysian Valley Riverfront Creative Campus,” would include underground parking and three affordable housing units, which allows the developer to build a project that is taller and larger than would normally be allowed.


  1. awesome buh bye frog town riverside gang!!!!

  2. They should continue to build very high density development along the river. These developments should have no parking, but rather canoe docks. People are driving less and canoeing more.

  3. RIP Frogtown. Here comes Venice Beach East.

  4. This is great! Why are we mourning the loss of parking lots and run-down alleyways? We need places to eat and fun shops to walk to in Frogtown and developments like this will only help
