A Parking structure topped by Retail stores adjoins the existing San Pedro Fashion Mall in Downtown Los Angeles.  Ace Engineering and August Construction worked together to shore two story subterranean pit that would come to house the parking structure.  The shoring engineer was Burnett & Young.  All the fashion stores were presold by the owner during the construction, attesting to the success of stores with parking in the downtown area.
