Chinese Developer Reveals Plans for South Park Mega-Project



Quote:
Shenzhen Hazens Real Estate Group, which last August spent $105 million to acquire the Luxe City Center hotel at Figueroa Street and Olympic Boulevard and an adjacent parking lot, has revealed plans to build three high-rises on the site.

The first phase of the project would create a 30-story hotel, with 250 rooms, at the northwest corner of 11th and Flower streets, as well as a 30-story condominium tower at the northeast corner of 11th and Figueroa streets. A second phase would demolish the Luxe hotel and raise a 42- condominium tower. There would be 650 condos in total.

The development would also have 80,000 square feet of retail on two floors, with much of it fronting Figueroa Street.

The $700 million project represents Hazens’ first ground-up development in the United States. The company broke into local market with a purchase of the 802-room Sheraton hotel at Los Angeles International Airport in December 2013....

azens is in the entitlement process, which should take 12-14 months, according to Jerry Neuman, a land-use attorney with the firm Liner who is working on the project. The development, which is as yet unnamed, would break ground in 2017, with construction of the first phase taking about 24-28 months. That would lead to first-phase completion by early 2020, and the second phase would begin immediately after that, Neuman said.

Initial renderings from architecture firm Gensler show sparkling, angular towers with sleek lines and broad swaths of glass. The towers are connected by an eight-story podium with parking and outdoor amenities, such as green space and pools. Additional amenities would be built on the towers’ rooftops.

A large public plaza along Figueroa Street would draw pedestrians into the main retail entrance. The company intends to attract upscale and boutique retailers, as well as restaurants, Hui said.

Functionally, it certainly will be a welcome addition for LA.

Aesthetically, I think it'd be good if the city gets more Neo Art Deco and Spanish Colonial Revival style projects. Something that adresses the "vernacular" style of Los Angeles.

Perhaps the architects of David M. Schwarz or LA new classical locals like Marc Appleton, Tim Barber, Robertson Partners, Erik Evens (KAA Design) or Richard Manion can come up with something proper.
