There was some speculation that the building and Elixir, the mural by Patrick Henry Johnson that graces it, would be demolished last month, but the development process has not moved that quickly.

The new structure will eventually stand five stories tall and be home to 64 residential units, as well as commercial retail space on the first floor.

The developer, Axiom, also owns the property at 3831 Stocker Street. As reported in Urbanize L.A., the developer had attempted to push a 74-unit project through at that site in 2017, but ultimately withdrew the proposal.
