Alot if not all of the 50+ story buildings in downtown LA are offices. Gehry's tower is a combo hotel/residences and will will most likely be between 590-620 feet high..roughly the height of Cal Plaza 1 (the shorter one):

Photo Update - June 16, 2007

Nice day for a walk...


Evo
14 stories up.



From Grand Ave. It's hard to see, but cladding is starting to wrap around the north side.



I really wish this building was taller. The facade is turning out to be very nice (look for the reflection of SBC Center).




Luma



The New 11th Street.



The new Hope Street.




Hanover Tower
Topped out, seen from 11th Street.




717 Flower
Got a little lazy with the stitch job, but you get the idea.




LA Live (Ritz Carlton pictures are in the Highrise forum)
Nokia Theater getting glass...



...dirty glass



ESPN/ESPN Zone Building, from Chick Hearn Ct.



Club Nokia Building from Olympic




Market Lofts
The Ralph's is really coming along. My guess is late June or early July.



Sidewalk landscaping has been in for a couple of weeks.




The Brockman
Windows finally going in on the backside.




LAPD Headquarters




Mura
The south side facing Zip Fusion and E. 3rd.



The facade actually doens't look that bad with the masonry work diluting the "stucco effect" somewhat.




San Pedro Apartments - (Block 8)
Just a very big hole for now...




Federal Building
Slowly but surely coming down.




That's it for now.

Um, you're probably not aware that all that plywood is framed by steel.

I agree. Orsini belongs in either Pasadena or somewhere in the San Fernando Valley, NOT Downtown L.A.

These are the Southpark Towers project by Meurelo Maddox.




Here's some excerpts:

"We are currently redeveloping the former headquarters of Union Bank, an historic building originally built in 1928, into 92 loft-style units and approximately 11,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space. The property is located at the corner of Hill and Eighth Streets in downtown Los Angeles. While each of the units will be a separate legal condominium unit and are being renovated to a for-sale standard of quality, our business plan calls for them to be initially leased as rental apartment units."


"Southpark Towers will be a two building complex located on most of a city block between Olive Street and Grand Avenue and 11th and 12th Streets in the Southpark section of downtown Los Angeles. The first building of the complex, with the address of 1150 Grand Avenue, will be the larger of the two buildings and will contain three hundred and seventy four high rise residential units in a forty three story high rise tower. A seven story parking garage will be constructed adjacent to the building, with the top floor of the garage dedicated to tenant amenities such as a swimming pool, a tenant health club, common meeting rooms, concierge service and a common media center. The ground floor of this building will contain approximately 30,000 square feet of retail space. While each of the units will be a separate condominium unit and are being constructed to a high for-sale standard of quality, our business plan calls for them to be initially leased as rental apartment units. 1150 Grand Avenue is in the schematic design stages in advance of receiving a building permit. The second building of the complex, with the address of 336 W. 11th Street is in the conceptual design phase. We anticipate receiving our excavation permit in the third quarter of 2007 and commencing excavation work in the fourth quarter of 2007. Kajima Construction has been selected as the general contractor for this project."

717 is going to be a nice addition to that intersection...

Quick question: The lower platform levels of the structure are going to be a mall or something?

of course i am. but that doesn't mitigate the fact that 2X4s and plywood constitute the absolute lowest quality construction materials, even when framed by steel. without building codes requiring buildings to stand up to earthquakes, i doubt they would bother with the framing.

just another note too: cut the condescenion. i know this site is full of morons, but why don't you give some people the benefit of the doubt. there are plenty of more respectful ways to say what you said.

What about them? They're crappy but affordable. Downtown LA needs more affordable housing.

are they actually designated affordable housing? if so, i find that surprising seeing as they look marketed toward the fanny-pack wearing, retired, midwestern crowd with healthy pensions.

Yea I was downtown around 4 am yesterday and walked by Concerto site to see with my own eyes and yes the crane base is up basically measuring from the pit floor to ground level. I wish it was a different color though. lol as fate has it I wanted to get a closer look so I climbed the fire hydrant on the portion of closed sidewalk on the Flower St side of the site in front of The Metropolitan to attempt to get a better view over the fence into the pit using one foot on the side nozzle and placing the other on the top of the hydrant looking I climbed on top and looked into the site for a few moments. As I started to step down back onto the ground I lost my footing and split my jeans from below my crotch almost to my left back pocket, good grief either way good to see progress.
