A new development is taking shape at the corner of West Jefferson and Crenshaw boulevards in South Los Angeles.

The groundbreaking for West Angeles Plaza, a 45,000- square-foot shopping center, took place on Thursday.

It will be anchored by a Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Market, a full-scale grocery store in an area sometimes called a "food desert."

The development is accessible to public transit, and it's expected to bring at least 150 jobs to the area.
