Metropolis will finally break ground on February 14, over 20 years after it was first proposed. The first two buildings shall be a 19-story/350-room Hotel Indigo and a 38-story/290 unit residential tower. Renderings should be released sometime within the next couple weeks. Gensler is still the design architect.

A second phase would build significantly larger towers.

Timeline is pretty fast, looking at mid 2016 for hotel and fall 2016 for the 38 story tower, that should come close to 400ft. Can't wait to see renderings.

Here's a First Look at the Big Plans for South Park's Metropolis



Quote:
The groundbreaking for the long-awaited Metropolis development was a lot more exciting than shovels in the dirt because it also included a big reveal of never-before seen conceptual renderings and models. So many of downtown's notoriously halted projects have been in the news recently because they're no longer stalled. Big development is moving forward in downtown, often times because of foreign investment, as is the case with Gensler-designed Metropolis, which is backed by the Chinese group Greenland USA. The first phase of development at Metropolis will see two high-rises--a residential tower and 19-story fancy hotel--join the skyline; no word on when you'll be able to move into the residential units (also undecided: whether they'll be condos or apartments), but Brigham Yen over at DTLA Rising says the hotel is planning to open in February 2016.







Given the 60 story phase of this development, the tallest tower will likely be a skyscraper.

Chinese Developer Greenland Begins Construction on $1 Billion Metropolis Project in Downtown LA



Quote:
This past Valentine’s Day was another major, major milestone in Downtown LA’s continued march forward toward urban renewal and revitalization. The Metropolis project, which is a 6.3 acre development site (currently an ugly surface parking lot) on the western edge of downtown abutting the 110 freeway, held a ceremonial ground breaking event that finally secured the fate of the long-delayed project.

[...]

Work will begin shortly on the first phase of Metropolis, which includes two high-rise towers along 9th Street: a 19-story, 350-room Indigo boutique hotel and a 38-story residential tower (rentals or condos have not been determined yet). The trendy Hotel Indigo, part of Intercontinental Hotel Group (IHG), will be the first one in Los Angeles County (they’re also in Anaheim and San Diego). The hotel is slated to open on February 14, 2016, exactly two years from now.

The entire Metropolis project — with a total of four towers planned — is being designed by global architect firm Gensler. The second and final phase, which consists of two towers, will break ground at an unspecified time in the hopefully not-too-distant future. These two residential towers along 8th Street will rise to 50 and 60 stories giving the Metropolis project a skyline defining height.

Compared to 777 Tower, it looks just about exactly 200m.

I think this cluster is a good addition to the skyline. It makes the skyline wider

Even without any hard stats or detailed drawings it's increasingly clear that the tallest tower will not exceed 600 ft. by much. So...off to Highrises!

No. The Metropolis lot is NW of Francisco St. and was cleared many years ago. It's currently a giant parking lot.
