The “G” Shopping Center (5th & Western)
LA한인타운 5가와 웨스턴 길에 있는 ‘The G가주 쇼핑몰'(구 가주마켓)
In 2011, the iconic California Market on the corner of 5th Street & Western Avenue closed to make room for the construction of THE G, a new Gaju Marketplace Shopping Center. (The California Market on Beverly & Kingsley in North Koreatown remains open.)
Current plans show that this new California Marketplace will be 80,000 square feet with a ground-floor market, a second floor with restaurants and retail, and a third floor with a few restaurants/retail and a large open patio area. The height of the building is expected to be 48 feet with decorative parapets rising to 60 feet. There is no intent to allow bars as tenants.
Estimated date for completion and reopening of the supermarket is December 2015.
*Confirmed tenants: The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, Tous Les Jours Bakery
