Actually, Metropolis and the proposed 52-story Maguire tower will all be north of 9th Street, so they won't make the Ritz look any less "lonely". There will still be a considerable gap in the skyline between the Ritz and TCW Tower until some of the sites between 9th and Olympic are developed - which are part of the overall LA Live plan.

However, LA Central - on the corner of Figueroa and 11th Street, will help connect the Ritz with the new cluster forming in South Park (Evo, Luma, Elleven, Glass Tower).

Wait, so that parcel of land directly north of the LA Live site is also part of the LA Live plan? Or are you just referring to that proposed hotel?

I actually wish that LA Live would extend across 9th Street and snake it's way up towards Metropolis. Francisco St can become the next Hollywood Blvd.

Its bout time LA got a new highrise....i mean for the 2nd largest city in the US its lacking....and of course its more spread out than up.....however as the "gateway" to the west(from Asia), is there any possible chance they could land a big East company to invest in a supertall? I HOPE SO ! !

I've seen a rendering of the 50 story office tower, but in the rendering it looks to "fat" at the base to fit in the site, im hoping for a Comcast center like profile, if its built. (with the curves, of course)

The whimsical glass curtain wall pattern reminds me of this building in Midtown NYC, which escapes me now. But this one is much nicer with all that varying shades of blue.

I'm guessing that the rendering is a massing design. Not that I'd complain too much.

I'm surprised that LA's building codes allow signage on the top towers. Up here in the Pacific NW, Vancouver, Seattle & Portland, signage is strictly forbidden. Anyway, looks like you have some nice projects going up. Does anyone have a count of how many are currently in the air?

L.A is truly an amazing project but hopefuly it will bring less cars and more pedestrians

Being that this is LA, I doubt it. Most of the people from the Westside or the Valley will drive to LA Live and park in its parking structure. Some will park a few blocks away from LA Live and walk. Very few will take mass transit.
