LOS ANGELES: The Hanover Tower (27 Stories)

You know, I believe this is the first time a building from Los Angeles has been featured on the Construction Updates sub-forum.

Anywho, the Hanover is the tallest tower under construction on Downtown LA since..well..Cal Plaza 2 way back in 1992.

The Hanover will be the first of many new buildings that will be constructed in the South Park area of downtown LA. South Park is the area that sits between the southern part of downtown Los Angeles and the 10 freeway.

Here is the Hanover. It underwent a modest facelift. An apt thing to do in LA.

Old Rendering:

New Rendering:

Construction site:





*An added bonus* Here is a picture of all the buildings that are approved/proposed for South Park.


Elleven, Luma, Hanover are all under construction. MetLofts are finished. And the 55 story Hilton will start in the summer.

Looks like will be one of the tallest of the zone. Anyway, 27 stories it's not that bad. You should came here (BARCELONA) where tallest projects are 32 stories

Actually, it's not that tall, even for its immediate surroundings. The TCW Building (the brownish red building on the left) is virtually across the street from this building, and is roughly twice as tall. Then the buildings only get taller as you move forward.

The significance of this building is not its height or its design (which is decent, but not great), but the fact that it's the first building over 20 stories to be built in downtown LA in 13 years. And it's one of the earliest buildings that was proposed in this new spate of buildings, and it's actually starting construction on schedule. Hopefully this is an indication that the rest of the proposed projects downtown will move forward as well.

Aside from a few sandbags, nothing has happened yet.

Wow i never knew LA was having such a large building "depression". Even though this tower is quite short good luck to LA. Hopefully you guys start seeing more high rise and less sprawl development.
