Mack Urban Wants to Start With Hotel and Residential Towers



Quote:
Last week, the Downtown News reported that newly formed developer Mack Urban plans to construct hotel and residential towers on surface parking lots surrounding the AT&T Center. According to a recent case filing with the Department of City Planning, the $750 million mixed-use project's first buildings will be two high-rise structures at the northeast corner of 12th Street and Grand Avenue. The first tower, containing 461 residential units and 8,700 square feet of ground level retail space, would rise 41 stories at 1120 Grand Avenue. The second, a 300-room hotel with 8,610 square feet of commercial space, would stand 12 stories high. Designed by AC Martin, the joint venture between Mack Urban and AECOM would join the Wilshire Grand Center in utilizing the Los Angeles Fire Department's newly relaxed rooftop helipad policy. Representatives of AC Martin previously informed the Architect's Newspaper that at least one building in the decade-long project would feature a "'sculpted' top."

Since a full build-out of the development's 1,500 residential units is not expected until 2024, later phases are understandably not as far along in the design process. However, a preliminary massing created by AC Martin portrays a mixture of low-rise and high-rise structures on Mack Urban's other properties:

Designs and additional details as they come in...

More details out:

First Look at First Piece of South Park's Multi-Use Megaproject



Quote:
Here's our first look at the renderings for the new residential development that's set to go up on the parcel bordered by Hill Street, Pico Boulevard, and Olive Street in South Park as part of developer Mack Urban's massive, $750-million, millennial-friendly planned community. (Mack Urban is partnering with AECOM Capital on the development.) The site plan review, as seen in a Downtown LA Neighborhood Council presentation, shows that The Project at Pico, designed by AC Martin, will have 362 condos (including 23 townhouses) in two seven-story mixed-use buildings, plus 6,400 square feet of commercial space on the ground.

Don't worry, the megaproject won't be entirely stubby: as far as we know, there are still two towers—one residential and one hotel—headed to the part of the project at Grand, Olive, and Twelfth.

Revealed: Phase Two of South Park's Mixed-Use Megaproject



Quote:
We got a peek at the first part of Mack Urban and AECOM Capital's massive, millennial-friendly mixed-use project earlier this year, but now we're completing the puzzle with these renderings by AC Martin of the taller, second part of the four-building project. As seen on Building LA, this arm of the $750-million dollar development will take out a couple parking lots, but add so much more: the two buildings in this phase will rise 37 and 12 stories tall and together contain over 650 units and over 20,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space.




The largest building in this phase of the project would be cropping on a 1.6-acre parking lot at the northeast corner of Twelfth and Grand. The plans call for a 37-story tower with 512 condos and around 10,000 square feet of space for retail and restaurants on the ground floor. The building would have eight levels for parking (six above ground, two below), with a total of 752 spaces. (That sounds like a lot, but the plans call for this structure to provide parking for both buildings in the development.) This structure would have a deck on top of the podium for resident amenities like a pool and a dog run. Taking advantage of building in a post-helipad-requirement LA, the tower would be topped by a 100-foot spire that's sadly not featured in any of these renderings.






That 100 ft. spire should bring the height of the tallest tower to 486 ft.

Work Quietly Starting on Downtown Condo Projects

Quote:
Dec. 11 2014


[The] joint venture between AECOM and Mack Urban is preparing to begin work on a low-rise development known as the Project at Pico. The residential-retail complex, designed by AC Martin Partners, would rise upon two current parking lots bounded by Pico Boulevard, Olive and Hill Streets. Plans call for a pair of seven-story structures, creating a cumulative 362 condominiums and 6,400 square feet of ground-floor retail and restaurant space. The buildings would include a wide array of amenities, including a swimming pool, a fitness center and a 382-car underground parking garage.

The Project at Pico is merely the first stage of a larger development program from the AECOM-Mack Urban team, which paid $80 million for six acres of South Park real estate in late 2013. Additional parking lots directly across the street from the AT&T Center are expected to give way for larger condominium towers by the third quarter of 2015. Later phases would encompass two development sites located along Eleventh Street, bringing the project's overall valuation to $750 million.
