LA Metro Area Devlopments

After the attitudes toward highrise buildings in the L.A. metro have changed in the past two years, the L.A. metro is starting to get a lot of highrises being planned. There are about 80 towers listed as proposed / planned / approved / under construction, and 19 towers listed as completed since 2000, for a total of 99 towers. Many of these towers are 20 to 55 floors tall.


Here is a listing that may not be complete due to the complexity of finding such information that is hardly announced, and over a wide metro area, and that getting info on developments from all cities around the metro is not possible.

Thanks for the info and update, kinda helps put LA on the world map, if you know what i mean..! By this time next year, the LA basin should be dotted with cranes.

It's been a long time coming, and this boom should last at least two or three years, (I can't wait for projects like, the Grand ave. plan, or the LA Live project, to get going full swing, and add long awaited verticality to the downtown skyline..!!!!

By the way, the rendering of the Metropolis project, is of the original proposal, (3 office towers, all around 30 floors tall, and also there was a hotel component, (not in the rendering, about 28 floors) Michael Graves was the principle architect of the project, i'm not sure if he's involved in the redesign, (I think as a Civil/public works type of architect, he's OK, but i'd be interested to see what he could do with residential highrise..?) If this project gets it's request for residential zoning, it along with the LA live, and Grand ave. project's, will add at least three, 550+ foot towers to the skyline, along with a dozen or so, 200' to 400' foot towers, going up as well, will be a sight, not seen in at least 15 years.

^ Cal Plaza 3 for all we know is dead. Which sucks because it would make a great addition to the skyline.

However, the space is still there should they choose to build it.

This is not everything by the way. some of them i couldnt fit in and some i forgot.
