Document Description
The County desires to purchase the property located at 529 S. Maple Avenue (and adjacent parking at 525 S. Maple Avenue) for long-term continuation of its current use as the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health Downtown Mental Health Center and offices, and do some improvements (the "Project"). The property consists of an approximately 25,000 sf building and 46 parking spaces. The proposed Project would involve the majority of recommended improvements as outlines in the 2010 Building Evaluation Report completed for the existing building and the August 2013 Existing Condition Inspection Report. The proposed Project does not include demolition of the building or major modifications of existing Project site structures or construction of new facilities at the project site. The proposed Project would include structural and seismic improvements, architectural improvements, off-street parking improvements, and abatement of asbestos, lead based paint, and mold. Structural and seismic improvements include reinforcing unreinforced masonry, shoring up spalled and cracked concrete, and anchor of rooftop equipment. Architectural improvements include repainting stucco, replacing the roof, waterproofing the rooftop, replacing some interior doors, lighting fixtures, and carpeting, and upgrading a restroom. Abatement of asbestos, lead based paint and mold would be conducted per regulatory requirements for workplace safety. Construction of the proposed Project is estimated to last approximately fourteen months. Mitigation measures implemented during hazardous materials abatement activities will render no significant effect on the environment.
