REQUEST(S):
Pursuant to the Los Angeles Municipal Code, section 12.24 W1; the applicant is requesting
a conditional use to permit the on-site and off-site sales and dispensing of beer and wine
only in conjunction with a 1,171 square-foot fashion retail shop and wine bar with arcade
seating, having hours of operation from 6:30 am to 1:00 am, and hours of alcohol sales
from 11:00 am to 1:00 am, daily.
BACKGROUND
The subject site for this Conditional Use Permit request is Unit #114 in the Spring Arcade
Building, which is a designated Historic-Cultural Monument by the City of Los Angeles (LA137). The subject tenant will occupy approximately 1,171 square feet within the twelve-story
building.
The building is located with frontages on Spring Street and Broadway between W. 5th Street and
W. 6th Street with a street-level full-length arcade. It has a General Plan Land Use designation of
Regional Center Commercial. Recognized by the California Office of Historic Preservation, the
building is located within the Broadway Theater and Entertainment District and zoned as [Q] C54D-CDO, being subject to the Q-conditions of Ordinance No. 180871. It has served the area as a
retail mall for many years and features office spaces on the second and third floors with 143
residential units above.
Surrounding uses in the area consist of mixed-use commercial and residential lofts with multiple
surface parking lots situated in the immediate area. Ground floor uses surrounding the Spring
1
Arcade Building are dedicated for similar retail use, which include coffee shops, restaurants,
boutiques, and small markets.
Broadway is a modified secondary highway, with a right of way of 90 feet and is fully improved.
Spring Street is a modified secondary highway, with a right of way of 108 feet and is fully
improved.
Historic Features
The Spring Arcade Building (LA-137) was originally constructed in 1924 as the Mercantile
Arcade Building replacing Mercantile Place, a then Los Angeles landmark for nearly 40 years.
The new building was designed by McDonald and Couchot, who drew their inspiration from the
Burlington Arcade in London. The original layout included 61 shops and 350 offices in two 12story towers, one facing Spring Street and one facing Broadway. Its architectural detailing
consist of a curved skylight running between the two buildings and Spanish Renaissance
entryways with a Beaux-Arts exterior.
Recent Changes
In 2013, a Master Conditional Use Permit (ZA 2013-1068-MCUP) was issued for the sales and
dispensing of beer and wine and a full-line of alcohol for on-site consumption in conjunction
with one existing and six new venues on the ground floors of the Spring Street Arcade Building
and the Thom McCan Building. The Spring Arcade building with its wide range of shops and
eateries has become increasingly more popular, drawing many visitors and downtown residents
to the area.
GENERAL CONDITIONAL USE FINDINGS:
i. That the project will enhance the built environment in the surrounding neighborhood or
will perform a function or provide a service that is essential or beneficial to the community,
city, or region.
The proposed project will enhance the built environment and will contribute a service that is
unique and beneficial in the surrounding community. First, the approval of this conditional use
will enhance the built environment through furthering the revitalization efforts already in
progress on site as it will fill yet another vacant retail spot within the arcade. Therefore, the
proposed use will provide safety benefits through encouraging additional pedestrian foot traffic
into the Spring Arcade Building, providing more “eyes on the street.” Second, the proposed
offering of curated wine selections by successful French restaurateur Olivier Gaquiere in
conjunction with a non-required food menu that complements the selection provides the
surrounding community with a unique amenity. The applicants wish to provide quality and rare
2
French-made products, gourmet foods and wines, and charcuterie and cheese, all in a cozy and
intimate environment. It is well established that France is regarded as one of the Old World’s
revered producers of fine wine, being known for its rolling countryside vineyards. As such, the
ability to serve wine will aid the applicant’s in their mission to offer visitors a truly French
cultural experience. The area currently lacks such a space where visitors can engage with
international culture; therefore, the proposed use will provide social and cultural benefits to
downtown Los Angeles.
ii. That the project's location, size, height, operations and other significant features will be
compatible with and will not adversely affect or further degrade adjacent properties, the
surrounding neighborhood, or the public health, welfare, and safety.
The proposed retail shop and wine bar will be located in an existing multi-story mixed-use
complex in an existing space. It will consist of exterior seating on private patio space, an interior
boutique market and wine bar, as well as a mezzanine (which will be added during Phase 2 of the
project). The project will not entail demolition of any of the historic features of the SpringArcade Building. The proposed construction of mezzanine will add additional floor area but will
not alter any historic features. Therefore, the use will be compatible with the existing look that
has been established.
The project is located in a bustling area of downtown, which has a plethora of ground floor retail
spaces, such as L.A. Café, Guisados, the Last Bookstore, Happy Day Ice Cream, and many
boutique shops. The area is also located within the Broadway Theatre District, a thriving
commercial and entertainment hub for the region. Accordingly, this use’s operation is
compatible with other uses in the area and will only further serve the growing population of
visitors and residents alike in the downtown area. Through establishing an additional use within
the Spring Arcade Complex, Syrah will further draw pedestrians through the arcade, providing
the area with “more eyes on the street”; therefore, it will help uphold public safety and welfare in
the immediate community.
Lastly, the wine, food, and store operations will be carefully managed by Olivier Gaquiere,
Thomas Choulot, and Sofian Ketfi, responsible French enthusiasts who will strive to provide
visitors the best experience. Under their attentive leadership, any foreseeable adverse impacts
will be promptly mitigated.
iii. That the project substantially conforms with the purpose, intent and provisions of the
General Plan, the applicable community plan, and any applicable specific plan.
The project is located within the Spring Arcade Building, and is zoned [Q]C5-4D-CDO, which
allows for commercial uses including restaurant, bar, and retail uses. The proposed sale of wine
and beer only in conjunction with a retail boutique shop is therefore in accordance with the
zoning designation.
3
Further, the project is located within the Central City Community Plan Area, which is designated
in the General Plan Framework as the “Downtown Center”. The Spring Arcade Complex is
indeed consistent with many of the policies and objectives of the Plan:
Policy 2-2.2: To encourage pedestrian-oriented and visitor serving uses during the
evening hours.
Syrah will offer a new amenity to shoppers in downtown and will further attract
local office workers and tourists to the area during evening hours. It will therefore
provide the area with more pedestrian foot traffic throughout the evening and into
the night. The cozy atmosphere that the applicant wishes to foster is compatible
with the goal of creating neighborhoods in downtown oriented and welcoming to
the pedestrian.
Policy 2-4.1: Promote night life activity by encouraging restaurants, pubs, night clubs,
small theaters, and other specialty uses to reinforce existing pockets of activity.
Being located in a historic building, the proposed use aligns with the program to
“encourage adaptive reuse of historic buildings as restaurant and entertainment
uses.” Moreover, by turning an underutilized space into a productive use, the
project complements the ongoing revitalization efforts in the area. It further helps
reach the established program to develop Broadway as a night-time destination.
ADDITIONAL FINDINGS
a. Explain how the proposed use will not adversely affect the welfare of the pertinent
community.
The proposed use will not adversely affect the welfare of the pertinent community; instead, it
will provide a beneficial service to the area. First, it promotes the ongoing efforts to revitalize
the local economy, bringing more visitors and residents to downtown and providing the local
government with additional taxable purchases. Second, the proposed use is for a one-of-kind
cultural establishment that will bolster Downtown’s revitalization efforts and continue the
ongoing extension of the pockets of activity along Broadway and Spring Street. Lastly, by filling
in this space, Syrah will provide nearby residents a walkable, safe, and welcoming environment
to visitors and residents alike. Therefore, it will not adversely affect the welfare of the pertinent
community; rather, it will be a positive addition to the neighborhood.
b. Explain how the approval of the application will not result in or contribute to an undue
concentration of such establishments.
No, the approval of this conditional use permit will not result in or contribute to an undue
concentration of such establishments. The proposed use of the building is for a unique cultural
establishment, which offers visitors a carefully curated selection of wine and French delicacies;
this type of establishment in conjunction with the beer and wine proposal is not currently offered
extensively in downtown. It will bring a fresh European-minded environment to the commercial
4
scene in Los Angeles, diversifying the existing population of American restaurants and bars in
the area.
c. Explain how the approval of the application will not detrimentally affect nearby
residential zones or uses.
The proposed project is located within the dense commercial region of Downtown Los Angeles.
Nearby residential uses already are immersed in a lively, mixed-use urban environment. The
proposed use - occupying a small space along the pedestrian arcade of the Spring Arcade
Building - will not cause an undue amount of noise or traffic to the already bustling region. In
fact, nearby residential uses will benefit from the added amenity, affording them the opportunity
to engage with European culture first-handedly from knowledgeable and enthusiastic experts of
French products.
