RFP: LA County seeks redeveloper for massive government complex

The Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday to start soliciting bids to tear down some of Los Angeles County’s most dilapidated government office buildings to build a new headquarters for the Department of Mental Health and one or more residential towers.

Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas championed the redevelopment of more than 1 million square feet of county office space along a quarter-mile stretch of South Vermont Avenue between 4th and 6th streets.

The county will be looking for one developer to step in to build on three separate sites in the “Vermont Corridor,” including one that may include affordable housing for seniors.

The total project cost is estimated at $453 million and expected to generate about 1,355 construction jobs, according to the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corp.
