You even stated you asked a construction worker, and he replied that yes it was.

That's what they said. But the photo's proved otherwise.

Just relax. It'll start soon enough.

Exactly. Despite the fact that work is obviously not going on for the hotel right now, this project is still moving along quickly. The Nokia Theater is moving along at a decent clip lately and the ESPN office building shot up in two months or less.

Remember that the hotel is one of the later phases of the project. My guess is they're still finalizing engineering documents and getting construction permits. Remember, the design of this changed pretty dramatically only six months ago. It takes some time to go from design to build, especially in LA, where the permit process can be drawn out.

The Metropolis Environmental Impact Report is out. There will be 4 towers, with the tallest two at 620 feet. The first two "shorter" towers will be built fist. I have extracted and posted the images from the entire EIR below.

You can read the entire thing here:

it would be cool if they could up the 1st tower from 350' to 360' meaning 12' ceilings. 2nd tower from 500' max to 520' for 12' ceilings, 3rd tower could have 50+ stories while having 12' ceilings and maintaing its 620' max limit. If the market permits more office construction, maybe they could add more floors to the Office tower with a 13'-6" ceiling height which could equal out to possible 45 stories. Good to see this thing back on track. I hope the plazas are not too barren, and windy because we already have too many of those in downtown already, i.e California Plaza, Wells Fargo, 7th + Fig, etc

They remind me of Concerto; and the hell with ceiling heights, lets hope for bulldozers as soon as possible.

You do need high but not too high celing heights. Otherwise you'll have a 600 foot tall building with only 20 stories.

very interesting. "rustic industrial". feels more like a village than santee village. cute and artsy. perfect for anyone in search for their inner hippie.

I like it. I think it would be cool to have a mix of Vancouverish style residential buildings as well as some sophisticated designs like what u would find on Park Ave, Magnificent Mile, and even in San Diego lol damn. I hope those Flower Street Lofts residents dont bicker too much to the point where the developers have no choice but to either downsize or cancel the project. Now I want to see what they are gonna do with that white low rise office bldg with the vertical windows across the street. btw just imagine what South Group could do if the owner of those lowrise structures adjacent to LUMA would just sell the property. I heard they had preliminary work planned for that site somewhere along 14 or 15 story structure. That stretch of Hope Street would look really residential and sophisticated if everyone would just cooperate. Imagine Hope or Flower Streets becoming the next "Park Ave" of Los Angeles. eat ur hearts out Wilshire Golden Triangle!!!

went on a tour the other day. The Eastern Colombia is amazing. great units and the rooftop pool area is unbelievable! the Textile building has great layouts as well, but the location isnt exactly the best. The Market Lofts, well, what a disappointment. Bad designs and frankly, i think the square footage is exaggerated. Lastly, it looks as though i might reserve a unit at the Roosevelt Tomorrow. More details to come!

I'm jealous of you LASF. But congratulations.

Btw..this is what the South Park area of downtown LA will look like in about 3 years.

This model is missing something important, a reference. There needs to be people there so that we can imagine how tall these buildings are.
