A Korean market will take the place of a Hispanic market in Koreatown, Los Angeles.

The building, located on the intersection of Vermont Avenue and James M. Wood Boulevard, is currently a Monte de Zion owned by Hwang Gyu-man, Zion Market owner.

Hwang said he has requested construction permission from the city to tear down the Monte de Zion to replace it with a four-story building, which will include a Korean market on the first floor and a parking lot.

The existing 24,000-square-foot building houses Monte de Zion on the first floor and apartment units on the second floor. Hwang opened the store three years ago after acquiring the building for $3.2 million following the closing of Liborio Market.

“There’s a lack of Korean markets on the southern part of Vermont Avenue in Koreatown,” he said. “We’re planning on opening a Korean market, but we will make a final decision once the permits come through.”

Zion Market has locations in Koreatown, Cerritos, Buena Park, Irvine, Hawaiian Gardens and San Diego.
