LOS ANGELES | 717 Ninth | 395ft | 35 fl | Com

Location: 9th Street and Flower Street
Function: Mixed-Use | 214 Units | 6,800 SF Retail
Developer: Meruelo Maddux Properties
Architect: Mambo Architecture
Completion: 2009

717 Ninth

Developer Meruelo Maddux Properties broke ground earlier this year on a 35-story project and is on schedule and on budget, according to spokesman Michael Bustamante. A glass curtain resembling a wall of water will clothe the high-rise. The first few floors have been framed and much of the parking structure has been completed at the two-thirds-of-an-acre site adjacent to the Ralphs supermarket. Plans call for the tower at Ninth and Flower streets to contain 214 units and a 6,800-square-foot ground-floor seafood eatery. Mambo Architecture is designing the $120 million effort. Completion is slated for mid-2009.
