The Sweetbird South Residences is a 14-story, 70-unit condo building that is being designed by Studio Gang. The Museum Garage will add some of the 1,200 new parking spaces that will come to the area. Paradise Plaza will be a retail building that will anchor a plaza filled with local and cultural art, and is being designed by Johnston Marklee. The Institute of Contemporary Art will house a museum of fine arts, is being designed by Aranguren & Gallegos, and will be funded by private donations, with a land donation from the Design District Associates.
