An earlier plan to add housing the shopping mall is off the table.

Los Angeles-based real estate investment firm CIM Group has agreed to purchase the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza mall, the company announced this week.

The 40-acre, 869,000-square-foot complex, located at the intersection of Crenshaw and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevards, opened in the late 1940s.  Two of the mall's anchor tenants - Walmart and Sears - had already shuttered prior to the COVID-19 outbreak.  CIM Group intends to convert the roughly 300,000 square feet of retail space they left behind into offices.
