We Have Some Questions About The New Plans For Taix
Via an application filed with the Los Angeles Department of City Planning, Urbanize LA this week revealed what might take Taix's place — a six-story development with 13,000 square feet of retail space, 170 apartments (24 of which will be restricted affordable units) and a 220-car basement garage.

The proposed development is comprised of two separate structures linked by pedestrian bridges. Taix will occupy a 6,000-square-foot space on the ground floor of one of them, alongside several other restaurants and retail establishments.
It's a massive change from the current French Revival-style structure which has been home to Taix since 1962.
