Good to hear there's something going on.
The downtown area is going to be a few year project and it doesnt take alot to have a new look.
Yet if they only could get rid of those parking lofts, turn them into towers and start building proper subway system especially in downtown and close by neighbourhoods.

It sure is looking good.

IDS Seeking to Move In on City Centre's Downtown Site
LABJ 4/18/05

IDS Equities LLC has agreed to pay City Centre Development Ltd. about $50 million for a 6.3 acre parcel norht of Staples Center.

IDS would continue with plans hatched by City Centre more than a decade ago to build a massive condominium, retail and hotel project at the downtown LA site that could cost more than $750 million. The project would be one of the largest residential mixed use projects in Los Angeles.

Martha Jordan, representing City Centre, confirmed a deal is in the works but, citing confidentiality agreements, wouldn't disclosed terms.

While IDS has the site under contract, the deal could still fall aprt if the firm can't raise financing or gain approval fromt he city's CRA, sources said.

Jordan said if the deal can be reached, it will likely be completed this fall. If the deal cannot be completed, City Centre wants to start construction by year's end or early 2006.

City Centre began assembling the site in the mid 1980s. In 1993 the company received entitlements for a 2.6 million sq ft office, hotel and retail project called Metropolis. (In October, the company asked the city to allow it to build condos instead of offices.)

With the LA economy in turmoil, City Centre couldn't get the project off the ground and the site has been used as overflow parking for Staples Center events.

If a sale is finalized, IDS plans to ask the city to allow it to build the same project envisioned by City Centre--except with condominiums instead of office space.

Has anyone ever heard of these guys? Google turned up nothing. That doesn't exactly inspire confidence that this project will get built. I do hope I am wrong tho.

Here is some recent stuff I have found:

http://eng.lacity.org/techdocs/emg/P...tial_Study.pdf

It looks like a new design for the new location.

All i know about IDS, is that it's Headquarters is in Minniapolis, MInn. I think IDS stands for Investors, Diversified, Securitys. but i'm not sure. I am sure of one thing, they have alot of money/equities. There headquarters tower in Minniapolis was built in the mid 70's and at the time was the tallest in the city,( IDS is one of, if not the largest company in that city) 52 storys at 700+ foot tall, it was designed by the late Phillip Johnson, Around the same time he designed Pennzoil Place, in Houston Tx. these buildings marked the beginning of his departure from the international style, glass box, and a few years later he teamed up with John Burgee, to develop what is now known as the postmodern style, that was the predominent design/style used throughout the 1980's
