It will still make an impact given the fact that it's 65 stories. It'll cover Cith Hall from this view.

Picture Update - Sun. Aug. 13, 2006

Wow, this thread slipped to the third page. Time to revive it with some pics...

Luma

Working on the "elleventh" floor (rimshot!!).



The 3 South cranes with Luma starting to peek out from the surrounding buildings.



The not-so-pedestrian-friendly sidewalk right across the street. The arch enemy of healthy ankles the world over.




LA Live

I'm too lazy to stitch a pano together today, so here's a couple shots. Every time I walk by here, there's tons of tangible progress.





The Nokia Theater finally starting to take shape.




Hanover Tower

7 floors and climbing.




Concerto

Yes, it is very deep. We're talkin near LA Live deep.




Market Lofts

She may not be tall or exceptionally designed, but she does add some density when looking down 9th street.



The first window frame. Hopefully we see some glass soon. If you look closely, you can see what looks like a preview of the paint color around the edges.

One thing about development in Los Angeles, it might get delayed, once construction starts, it might start off slow, but once underway, it moves fast. I was last in LA in May (walking around downtown by myself like I usually do whenever I'm down there) and Hanover was just wrapping up foundation work, Luma was halfway complete with the podium, and Concerto was still a parking lot. Now look at it.

Also, here is the 34 story Park Tower on 9th and Hope. Not to be confused with the proposed 65 story Park 5th.

There is a few renderings on the last few pages. This rendering shows how 1027 Wilshire will impact the skyline.

41 stories (including parking levels) seems to be the "sweet spot" right now for developers. Tom Gilmore's Vibiana Lofts tower is a very similar program (36 res. + 5 parking).

here is an update from curbed on the Gansevort West. i dont know if its really a update, but i love the render!



We have few new details to provide on the Gansevoort West Hotel going into the old Embassy Hotel at 9th and Grand. But as always facts and "details" just get in the way of lushly rendered aerials, as we provide here. Opening is still scheduled for late 2007. A basic rundown of the project after the jump.

Designed by Stephen B. Jacobs and Andi Pepper, Gansevoort West will include:

· 170 hotel rooms and suites furnished with old Hollywood panache
· Two grand suites and one penthouse
· 48-foot outdoor glass bottom rooftop pool, featuring underwater lights and music, stretching over one of two restaurants
· Tri-level, 1,800-seat theater for concerts and performances, filled with $25 million of Tiffany glass
· Two lushly landscaped rooftop lounges with spellbinding views of downtown LA
· Rooftop restaurant and lounge in the building's signature illuminated copper Baroque dome
· 6,500-square-foot spa and fitness center

From the LA Business Journal, regarding a new owner for the Fig Central Site. Looks like it might be a bigger project than before, with a hotel as well!

Anschutz Sells Retail, Residential Property Near Staples

By DANIEL MILLER
Los Angeles Business Journal Staff

The Moinian Group has purchased a significant piece of downtown property near Staples Center from Anschutz Entertainment Group.

The transaction closed Aug. 11, with New York-based Moinian paying in the neighborhood of $78 million for a 4.6 acre property now being used for event parking near Staples Center, for which AEG is the majority owner, according to sources close to the deal.

The property, which is across Figueroa Street from Staples, has been entitled for 250,000 square feet of retail space and 700 condominium/apartment units, for a total of 1.1 million square feet. Moinian may decide to increase the number of condominiums or apartments by reducing the size of each unit. It also is considering adding a small boutique hotel to the project, sources said.

Commercial builder LNR Property Corp. had attempted to acquire the property several months ago, teaming up with homebuilders Lennar Corp. and KB Home. But the deal came apart when KB instead decided to build 216 condominiums atop the planned Marriot Marquis and Ritz Carlton.

AEG spokesman Michael Roth and the Moinian Group declined to comment on the transaction. Rich Mayo of O’Donnell/Atkins, who represented The Moinian Group, also declined comment.


another project as well...

Condo Project
Los Angeles-based developer Witmer Development LLC has purchased a 44,000-square-foot development site at 1247 West Seventh St. in downtown Los Angeles from Service Employees International Union Local 1877 in a transaction valued at $8.9 million. Witmer plans to redevelop the property into a multi-unit condominium project. The sales team of Phillip Sample, Chris Caras, Michael Shustak, Maury Gentile and Brian Denton at Grubb & Ellis Co. represented the buyer and the seller in the transaction.

I knew the Fig Central site wouldn't sit empty for long.
