The proposed 755 Figueroa tower is 50 stories tall, two floors shorter than the 777 tower. But because it's to stand on a parking structure, it'll be a tad bit taller than the 777 tower.

Honestly, I don't see that one breaking ground anytime soon.

I don't either, but I was just trying to think of buildings proposed on the west side of downtown so he could add those in to that picture and bring more density to that side of the rendering. I can't wait till that gap is filled.

To answer the question of what to do with the county buildings
This covers the parcel, or lot, bordered by Grand, Tom Bradley,Temple and Hill. Two towers along Hill, at the corners of Bradley and Temple, leveled grass bordered by trees and accessable from all directions by a grand stairway on Hill and elevators within both towers. Stairs and ramps on Bradley and Temple. Height: 40 stories. Centrally located fountain between towers with 150 foot diameter reflecting pool frozen over in December for ice skating. 130 foot lighted tree for Holiday year end. Underground parking for county employees between towers. Both towers contain cheap eats (maybe a restaurant?) at ground level and employee access to 3rd level pavilions for eating. Park benches under trees throughout. Otherwise, level grass. Price: 520 million. Date: December, 2012

I don't really like how it seems to cover up City Hall. It makes the building seem way too small surrounded by two giants.

That I can understand. The displaced county employees will need space relative to what they will loose when their original offices are removed. They will need towers about this size, and the 'framing' of City Hall from this vantage point near Grand Avenue is something that you'd have to get used to. On the other hand, City Hall is in the distance and the towers are taller only by 8 stories or so...
