That's what I though at first, but here is what was written at the website:

The original Biltmore tower is a 25-story tower located at the intersection of 5th and Grand in downtown Los Angeles. The bottom floors are parking with retail at the base. The new building will convert the parking to office (2 office floors for 3 parking floors). There will be an additional elevator/stairs, core offset on the south face, and 25 new floors constructed above the existing tower. The new tower will consist of 3 residential units on floors 26 through 40 and one suite per level from floors 41 to 55. At the top will be a two story restaurant and 21 Club.

From the above paragraph the tower that you showed is the 25 story original tower. The 55 story tower is something new. problem is that I have never heard of this project before so I don't know what's up with that.

I had a dream that there were a lot of cranes all through Figueroa and between 10th and 13th streets. I wish I was a future teller lol, you get it.

Yeah..I was there Monday night walking around. Ralphs is above ground. As is Luma. I saw the site where Hanover will rise. All that's there now is dirt. And the area is fenced off. Walked down to Staples to the LA Live site..the parkingn lot is nothing but dirt, and there is a couple of large dumpsters and so far one traactor.

Also walked by MetLofts..the leasing office is pretty. I want to see the light show. Speaking of lights, it would be cool if the lights of the Grand Ave Lofts changed color.

And when is that church going to get built?

What building will have a light show? Wasn't there a buiding where they're going to build the Hanover Tower? I recall one old builing that had lit billboards in front of the Hotel Figureoa.

MetLofts will have a light show. And as far as I know, the Hanover site has always been a parking lot.

It's called 2000 Avenue of the Stars. I like the hole in the middle. Did you see the other construction?

Why do they build like this?, I like it better when although the buildings were new, they didn't have such expressive facades. For me these buildings are crazy. Why they don't make them like they were? Those buildings don't match the DTLA skyline. They should put them in New York between a cayon of skyscrapers so they would be unseen. 4/10, only good thing is that they're fillinfg up the parking lots.

those are preliminary designs. i read in a article that they have gone through many designs, so this will not be final. i like it when everything isnt a straight box of is bland, buildings like this add character and a focal point.

I agree. These buildings are not unlike the FIDM Tower with windows all over the place. I like it.
