Building History

Morgan, Walls and Clements designed the Chapman Park Market to be the first drive-in market in Los Angeles, CA. A notice in the Southwest Builder and Contractorsaid of the commission: "Plans by architects Morgan, Walls & Clements for a shop and market building on the north side of 6th St between Kenmore Ave to Alexandria Ave around a central patio (a drive-in facility); Chapman Bros, owners." (See "Chapman Market Notice," Southwest Builder and Contractor, 06/22/1928, p. 59, col. 2.)

Alteration

Brenda Levin and Associates renovated the structure in the late 1990s, and the mini-mall became a chic dining spot in the Koreatown neighborhood. The seismic renovation was performed by Englekirk and Sabol, Incorporated.
