Tokio Florist Restoration Inches Forward
Updated: Apr 23, 2022
Scott Plante, architect, co-founder of Silver Lake Together, and co-chair of Silver Lake’s Urban Design and Preservation Committee, reports that efforts to restore the historic Tokio Florist property on Hyperion continue to progress. According to plans being developed by Breland-Harper of Echo Park, the iconic site would be completely renovated into a professional office space. In addition, a new, small three-story office building will be built into the hillside and a new one-story retail building will be constructed. The garden will be restored by James Corner Field Operations, the urban design and landscape architecture firm behind the High Line in New York City and Tongva Park in Santa Monica. Next steps? An application for tax relief under the Mills Act has been submitted to the city's planning department.
