I think the writer was less concerned with height alone but with iconic buildings. Arguably the US Bank Tower is less distinctive than the others.

A new 12-story hotel is planned at 1523 Wilcox Avenue in Hollywood. This is just south of the Dream Hollywood, and west of another boutique hotel planned on Cahuenga.

Here's the redesigned Fig Central:

http://buildinglosangeles.blogspot.c...-figueroa.html

It's basically the same as the old project...just with an extra tower jammed in the middle.





What's somewhat concerning is the changes to street integration. They've basically converted the first two floors into a semi-enclosed mall.

http://buildinglosangeles.blogspot.c...s-haircut.html

The 250,000 sq. ft. office tower planned by the J.H. Snyder Co. at 5757 Wilshire Boulevard is taking a bit off the top. Still 13-stories tall, but down to 173' from the original 207' figure.

Supposedly Snyder was in negotiations with two tenants who wanted the entire building, and would probably hire its own architect to redesign the project. This is a little bit of speculation, but the change suggests that he might have signed a tenant.

The old design:

I really love that Fig South project. It'll be a solid extension of LAs skyline.

Shiny New Renderings for Fig South



Quote:
Next week, the DLANC's Planning and Land Use Committee is scheduled to take a closer look at Fig South, the glassy high-rise project slated for the (other) parking lot across the street from Staples Center. The twin 36-story towers are being designed by architecture firm Harley Ellis Devereaux; artistic renderings depict glassy, elliptical shaped buildings with swooping rooflines. Both towers would rise 400 feet above street level, the maximum height allowed for the property at 1200 S. Figueroa street. Altogether the project comprises 648 condominium units, situated above 48,000 square feet of sports-themed retail and restaurant space.

Designs for Fig South feature a prominent 100-foot tall podium, containing 1,770 parking spaces on seven above-grade and two below-grade levels. Renderings portray a landscaped outdoor deck atop the podium, offering amenities such as a swimming pool, fitness room, and barbeque pit. Additional open space would be included within each tower, specifically in the form of two rooftop terraces.

More details out about the large mixed use development planned at Pico & Grand:

First Look at First Piece of South Park's Multi-Use Megaproject



Quote:
Here's our first look at the renderings for the new residential development that's set to go up on the parcel bordered by Hill Street, Pico Boulevard, and Olive Street in South Park as part of developer Mack Urban's massive, $750-million, millennial-friendly planned community. (Mack Urban is partnering with AECOM Capital on the development.) The site plan review, as seen in a Downtown LA Neighborhood Council presentation, shows that The Project at Pico, designed by AC Martin, will have 362 condos (including 23 townhouses) in two seven-story mixed-use buildings, plus 6,400 square feet of commercial space on the ground.

Don't worry, the megaproject won't be entirely stubby: as far as we know, there are still two towers—one residential and one hotel—headed to the part of the project at Grand, Olive, and Twelfth.














------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Phase II:


Revealed: Phase Two of South Park's Mixed-Use Megaproject



Quote:
We got a peek at the first part of Mack Urban and AECOM Capital's massive, millennial-friendly mixed-use project earlier this year, but now we're completing the puzzle with these renderings by AC Martin of the taller, second part of the four-building project. As seen on Building LA, this arm of the $750-million dollar development will take out a couple parking lots, but add so much more: the two buildings in this phase will rise 37 and 12 stories tall and together contain over 650 units and over 20,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space.




The largest building in this phase of the project would be cropping on a 1.6-acre parking lot at the northeast corner of Twelfth and Grand. The plans call for a 37-story tower with 512 condos and around 10,000 square feet of space for retail and restaurants on the ground floor. The building would have eight levels for parking (six above ground, two below), with a total of 752 spaces. (That sounds like a lot, but the plans call for this structure to provide parking for both buildings in the development.) This structure would have a deck on top of the podium for resident amenities like a pool and a dog run. Taking advantage of building in a post-helipad-requirement LA, the tower would be topped by a 100-foot spire that's sadly not featured in any of these renderings.






That 100 ft. spire should bring the height of the tallest tower to 486 ft.

Oh wow. I work at TriBeCa West (the little beige boxes pictured just to the west of Martin in this render), and it's already been nonstop construction with the Bundy station and Element LA next door. I guess I shouldn't expect that to change any time soon.

There is a huge discrepancy between American developers and international developers. Whats this phase bullshit? Test the market? Rental vacancy is less than 3% and condos sell for 650 a square foot today. The Chinese, Koreans, and Arabs have no hesitation once they have done their due diligence... Americans, not so much.
