Chinese Firm Reveals New Details at Metropolis



Quote:
When Shanghai-based Greenland Group purchased the long-stagnant Metropolis site in February, I Fei Chang, the president and CEO of the company’s U.S. subsidiary, said she wanted to move as swiftly as possible to build on the 6.33-acre property.

That was no bluff.

Greenland held a ceremonial groundbreaking just weeks after acquiring the South Park parcels, and last month started construction on the first phase of Metropolis, which will bring a 38-story condominium building and a 19-story hotel.

Now, the company has revealed plans for a second phase that will add two taller residential high-rises. Even more surprising, Greenland and project architect Gensler hope to break ground on that phase by the end of fall, said Gensler Managing Principal Rob Jernigan.

One of the additional towers will be 54 stories tall and have 740 condominiums. The other will be 40 stories tall with 510 for-sale units. Both will rise from an eight-story podium structure that incorporates two floors of street-level retail along Francisco and Eighth streets, along with some apartments and parking.

Some more info on Metropolis, plus additional renderings. If the presentation is to be believed, the larger tower will be 58 stories rather than 54 as previously stated by the Greenland Group. Exact heights are 451' and 647'. The larger building would become Los Angeles' tallest residential structure, narrowly edging out the proposed tower at 820 Olive Street (50 stories/637').

The momentum is growing.

I think going over 80 will take a while. But 40 was - until recently - rare. It is now hapening more and more.

Imagine an aerial with Metropolis, Fig Central and Wilshire Grand in a year.

They have started the shoring process for Towers 3 and 4 as well. There might be 7 or 8 cranes on this site in the not too distant future.
