I'm secretly hoping they use some elements from The Grove/Farmer's Market at La Brea + supermarket.  Used to live across the street and I would frequent at at least once or twice a week.

The grove is a nice place to go with family or bring your relatives out of town if they come to visit.

So you lived in the really high rise apartment complex?

Haha I wish.  I lived at the huge apartment complex Park La Brea.  It was a great area to be with tons of restaurants/retail within walking distance.  Base camp would literally be just on the other corner of the intersection for me, which is why I'm really hoping this commercial area is executed properly.

I know the woodbury Trader Joe is too close but it would be amazing to have one here at GP

Fat chance. If T.J.'s won't even put one in F.R. after numerous requests, saying it's too close to Woodbury 8 mi. away, then they're not going to put one in the G.P.

The other one in Irvine isn't that far from Woodbury town center. I think they are just blowing smoke. That said, no, they aren't going to put a TJ's in the base camp though. Sprouts would be nice and far more feasible (given distance to one in Marketplace / Westpark areas).

indeed. the other one is just a few miles away on culver. 

No need for a TJ.. but something!  and a place I can get some quick eats.

I believe the packing house inspired the Food Hall at Basecamp.
"I can only imagine at a house warming party what a total embarrassment it would be to tell the guests that there is no tour because there is no more house to show you because you are standing in the only room in the house. "

It's TRADE near Michelson, not CRAVE.

Retail rehabs are becoming increasingly popular after the success of the Lab, Camp, Packing District, etc. TRADE used to be a boring indoor food court, now it's pretty great. In fact too popular for its own good. But lessons will be learned for the future.

They need to also do these food halls in more residential areas.

Woodbridge Village would have been a good candidate for that... or where ZionMart (formerly known as Farm Direct?) is over in University Park.

Great Park could use something like that... a retail/food destination.

Great Park food hall and retails is in the work, as we speak.
