A new supermarket is under construction at 2408 Lincoln Avenue - the intersection of Lincoln and Figueroa.
Work is under way at the site on the back side of the lot, which has an entrance on Figueroa.
According to Richard Claghorn, a planner with the Los Angeles County Department of Regional Planning, a site plan was filed with the county to convert the existing structure into a super market and to extend the building by 3,751 square foot, making it more than 28,000 square feet in total.
Claghorn did not have information on who will own or operate the new supermarket.
The lot is owned by a Beverly Hills real estate partnership, according to a public records search. Altadena Patch left a message with the owner Thursday morning.

Altadena Patch will update this article with more information if we hear back from the owners of the property.
