What we know about the new Westside Lanes project in the Whittier neighborhood
The Westside Lane development at 2721 W. Leland Ave.
is expected to be completed in mid-August.
The project is an extension of the existing 16-acre property along W. Madison St., which was the site of a parking garage before the site was subdivided in the 1960s and 1970s.
The developers will also build on the site the new 12-acre site, which was developed by the developer’s family for the former D.L.F.P. headquarters.
According to a press release, the project will include:• The construction of a new five-story apartment building.• The development of a pedestrian bridge over W. Franklin St.• An expanded sidewalk along the east side of the site.• A new street-level pedestrian plaza with landscaping, landscaping and a landscaping easement.• Construction of a public park and green space on the south side of W. Jefferson St.
The Westside has been under construction for several years, with work beginning in June 2015.
The site will be the site for the city’s first mixed-use project.
The developer has been working on the project since the early 2000s, and has been building on the property for nearly a decade.
In a 2016 interview, the Westside project’s developer, Kelli and Mark McLeod, said the building would include a two-story condominium building, as well as an office tower.
They also said the project would include public space.
The property has been vacant for several decades, with the last occupants in 2011.
In 2017, the city of Whittiers agreed to a plan to buy the property, which has been used as a parking lot and parking garage.
A report on the city and its proposal for the property released in June 2018 showed the developer has a track record for building on land they own.
