Wow, what a campus! Americans sure know how to make those. Talking about New Classical.

Elkus Manfredi, Melendrez Design Partners and Harley Ellis Devereaux - well done!

Surprisingly, plans have been filed with LADBS for the proposed Eric Owen Moss tower next to La Cienega/Jefferson Station. 10 stories/230', 150k sq ft of office.

Looks like it was designed for Bane (Batman 3).

New Renderings Reveal Lots of Ped-Friendly Retail Coming to 888 S Hope in Downtown LA



t’s been three months since construction first began on the parking structure that will be attached to the new and exciting 888 S Hope, a brand new 33-story residential tower about to break ground later this year in burgeoning South Park. Being developed by LA-based CIM Group, new renderings from RTKL — the architect firm designing the project — show lots of retail space on the ground floor of both the parking structure and the tower itself. As you can see in the renderings (above and below), ample retail space will face Hope Street and wrap around the tower along 9th Street bordering the upcoming boutique Empire Hotel.

The auto-oriented driveway for the parking structure is supposed to be placed on Hope Street adjacent to the tower, but with so much retail, the entire project will still act as a strong pedestrian connection between South Park and the Financial District working in concert with the Market Lofts and the brand new 8th and Hope tower across the street. The parking structure is scheduled for completion in summer 2015 and the tower is slated to break ground this fall 2014 (possibly in late September) finishing up in 2016.

Metropolis came out on Curbed LA, again. This time with a most aggressive timeline.

Behold: DTLA Megaproject Metropolis's Next Two Giant Towers

The massive South Park multi-use megaproject Metropolis, which was stalled out for decades, is now having a serious growth spurt—just about a month after starting construction on the development's first phase—a 38-story condo tower and 19-story hotel—developers Greenland USA announced that they're planning on starting phase two—two even taller residential towers—as soon as this fall, reports the Downtown News. That's right: the project that's been talked about since the '80s, that once appeared in the A+D Museum's Never Built exhibit, is now moving along at a swift clip. The new towers in the Gensler-designed project are certainly going to make their mark on the skyline: the taller will be 54 stories with 740 condos; the other will be 40 stories with 510 condos.

Some more info on Metropolis, plus additional renderings. If the presentation is to be believed, the larger tower will be 58 stories rather than 54 as previously stated by the Greenland Group. Exact heights are 451' and 647'. The larger building would become Los Angeles' tallest residential structure, narrowly edging out the proposed tower at 820 Olive Street (50 stories/637').

This could be interesting:

LACMA is Planning a Frank Gehry Hotel/Condo/Museum Tower

Quote:
LACMA and Metro are cooking up an extreme gamechanger on the Miracle Mile: a museum/hotel/condo tower, sited on top of a future Purple Line station at Wilshire and Orange Grove (across the street from LACMA) and potentially designed by Frank Gehry. "My dream is some beautiful piece of architecture with an architecture and design museum at the base," LACMA head Michael Govan tells the LA Times. He hopes Gehry will design the building (he says he's envious of New York's Gehry-designed 8 Spruce Street) and that it will house the architect's archives. Gehry says they've discussed it and "I'm open to it."

LACMA only owns about a third of the property (which it uses as a parking lot), and it's working with Metro on getting buy-in from all the other surrounding owners now. Govan won't say how tall he wants the tower to be, but does say he sees it as "a sort of flagship" for denser, more vertical development around LA's transit system.

LACMA is a little further along on plans for a low-rise, sprawling new museum building by starchitect Peter Zumthor; the latest designs have the blob, which will be about the same size as the LACMA buildings it will replace, stretching across Wilshire to a site at Spaulding Avenue.

[...]
If MoMA in New York can plunk Tower Verre atop their galleries, why not LACMA? Hopefully this becomes a landmark worthy of the comparison!

Renderings Revealed For Huge Staples-Adajcent Towers



Quote:
The two massive parking lots that face Staples Center will likely be gone by the end of the decade, with the Fig/Central project and, a block south, a very tall development headed up by Jamison Services. Harley Ellis Devereaux is working on designs for this giant mixed-user, which features two 36-story towers bearing the name 1200 Fig at their apex in renderings on their site. The towers will sit above a very flashy eight-story platform of retail, electronic signage, "public art," and a shitload of parking. The 50,000 square feet of retail will be "sports-themed," according to the architect, with 648 "high-end condominiums" above, ranging in size from 750 to 4,000 square feet. A hotel may also be part of the project, along with even more retail, and Jamison and team want to break ground this year, according to a January story in the LA Times.

If this breaks ground by the end of the year, and the other projects stick to their timelines, the South Park area of Downtown LA could potentially have 19 towers under construction at the same time in less than a year from now (with others breaking ground after such as the Car Wash lot on Olympic, the city owned land next to 1200 fig that is going to be a hotel and the convention center hotel.)

4 towers from metropolis (19, 38, 40, 58)
2 towers from 1200 fig (36, 36)
2 towers from LA Central (37, 51)
2 towers from ONNI (40, 31)
2 towers from Mack Urban (41, 12)
1 tower from Carmel (27)
1 tower from ONNI (33)
1 tower from ONNI (50)
1 tower from CIM (33)
1 tower from Trumark, Glass Tower (24)
1 tower from Amacon (28)
1 tower, new hotel on Olympic (23)

Have you ever been to LA? It is a total misconception that LA is not dense, I thought this too until I actually visited. You begin to realize that LA has some serious density (not height) for a remarkably expansive geographic area.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...lation_density
The above link will show that many of the most dense cities are located in the LA metropolitan area.

http://www.citylab.com/housing/2012/...t-metros/3450/
The above reiterates that LA isn't as diffuse as people believe it to be.

I live in europe, so I really know what is density... haha


Los Angeles - 2938,65 hab/km²

Barcelona - 16 411,99 hab/km²

I don't mean that LA needs the density of barcelona, but it would be great if density grows a little bit, because it reduces energy consume and brings more life to a city.

And don't show just parts of the city, because every city has neighborhoods that are much more dense than others. I was talking about the hole city.

And even that, a city where you have a skyscraper and surrounding it you have some empty spaces don't have sense, for that is that I'm saying that is good for a city like LA that they are building all that

Good point. It is true that LA isn't more dense than European cities, but it is certainly dense for American cities when you compare it to the likes of places like Dallas, Indianapolis, or Phoenix.
