California Construction News: Erewhon Market to transform historic May Company parking garage in DTLA
The nine-story structure at Ninth and Hill was constructed in 1927 and designed by local firm Beelman & Curlett, the architect behind Park Plaza Hotel in Westlake and the nearby Garfield Building. It has four levels above ground, and another four underground.
It was particularly built for customers of May Department Store located at Eight and Hill, where the Broadway Trade Center now stands. It has around 200,000 sq.ft. of floor area, which delivered 400 parking spaces.
