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.
