LOS ANGELES | The Level - 888 Olive | 114m | 375ft | 33 fl | T/O

Groundbreaking Begins: Onni Group’s New 32-Story 888 Olive Tower in Downtown LA





Quote:
Better late than never right? What was supposed to be a “Dec 1, 2012″ groundbreaking for Vancouver based Onni Group’s 32-story apartment tower at 9th and Olive has been delayed until now, almost two months later. A reader sends in this photo from today that shows construction activity has now finally begun in earnest for the 888 Olive tower. Fencing has been put up around the perimeter and construction equipment and crews were spotted on site performing pre-construction work.

The new tower when completed will have 283 units for rent (potentially more than 400 new residents added to the downtown population) and a whopping 11,000 square feet of commercial retail space on the ground floor that could help activate the intersection substantially, while also helping to connect the southern part of the Historic Core to South Park and the Financial District.

If construction continues forward as projected, 888 Olive will be completed in late 2015/early 2016.

Not an outstanding design, but a very nice filler.

Downtown L.A. urgently needs these kind of residential highrises, because they are their best bet to breathe some new life into the area.

Downtown has plenty of life. More of it now than at any time in the previous five decades in fact. As to this building, it looks nice. White concrete (or whatever white material this is) and glass always look great in LA's mediterranean climate. Should be more of it here.

I was just in LA and I can assure you that downtown is vibrant, teeming with activity.

The Hill street side of the project isn't quite as far along, though.
