AT MATEO 322 • SHOPPING CENTER BUSINESS • May 2017 A t Mateo — a 130,000-square-foot mixed-use development currently underway by a partnership be- tween Blatteis & Schnur and ASB Real Estate Investments — is bringing a modern mix of creative office and retail space to Los Angeles' Arts District.

It's very urban, gritty and special." "The neighborhood is very eclectic, ex- citing and is a draw for both locals and tourists," he continues. "We are building what we hope to be the most significant development in the neighborhood." The four-building development is ap- proximately 185,000 square feet, and will feature a mix of retail and creative office space along four main paseos. There are two 28,860-square-foot floors completely dedicated to office space, one of which is leased to Soylent, a meal replacement brand. The project also features a 542-stall parking structure. "The project spans almost two blocks, and has about 550-feet of frontage on a street called Mateo, and about 300-feet of frontage on a street called Palmetto, and it was very important to us as developers that we build a project that looked and acted as if it was born in the neighbor- hood, but functioned as a modern devel- opment," says Schnur." In order to attain the look and feel of the neighborhood, Blatteis & Schnur used materials excavated from former buildings. "We wanted to use materials with great heritage," says Schnur.
