Proposed/Under Demolition:

HSL Properties was approved for a GPLET in March and will spend an estimated $38.5 million for demolition of the existing structure and construction of a new one. Demolition of the 1973 property is scheduled to begin by the end of May, and a 6-story building with 240 market rate apartments and ground-floor retail will be constructed in its place. Several buildings on the property that are eligible to be listed on State and National Registers of Historic Places will be saved including the Samaniego House, the Flin Building, and the Stables, which all date from the late 19th century to the early 20th century.

Placita Village, which opened in 1973, had more than 200,000 square feet of office and restaurant space, and a 500-space parking garage which remains open for hourly and monthly parking.

Demolition has commenced as of February 5, 2018.
