First Glimpse of the 41-Story Tower Planned at DTLA's World Trade Center
The proposed apartment tower would rise at 350 S. Figueroa Street.


JANUARY 14, 2019, 8:55AMSTEVEN SHARP


A presentation to the Downtown Los Angeles Neighborhood Council's Planning and Land Use Committee has revealed renderings for a proposed apartment tower from Jamison Services, Inc. that would replace a portion of the World Trade Center.

The project, located at 350 S. Figueroa Street, would calls for the partial demolition of the World Trade Center's parking garage and retail concourse to make way for the construction of a 41-story building featuring 570 studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments. Plans also call for amenity decks at the tower's third and roof levels, with parking for 155 vehicles to be located within the existing garage.

CallisonRTKL is designing the project, which would rise to a maximum height of 480 feet above street level. Renderings show a slender high-rise structure, with a glass exterior and an angled roofline intended to distinguish the tower from nearby office buildings.

The proposed development would remain connected to the existing system of above-grade pedways which connect many of the properties in the Bunker Hill area. At ground level, plans also call for widening existing sidewalks along Figueroa Street and the addition of a new crosswalk to the north of 4th Street.

If you asked me to pick just one building in LA's Bunker Hill CBD to tear down, it would be the World Trade Center Los Angeles. I think with the announcement of this new tower, they may be preparing for an eventual redevelopment of the WTCLA (which is easily the smallest building in the district). Also, the charter school housed in the building (USC Hybrid High) apparently moved to a site west of the LA Memorial Coliseum.

L.A. City Council Approves Environmental Report for 41-Story DTLA Tower

Plans from Jamison Services, Inc. to redevelop a portion of the Los Angeles World Trade Center have cleared a significant hurdle.
Earlier this week the Los Angeles City Council voted to adopt a sustainable communities environmental assessment for the proposed development at 350 S. Figueroa Street, which calls for demolishing part of the World Trade Center's parking garage and retail concourse to allow for the construction of a 41-story tower containing 570 one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments.
CallistonRTKL is designing the proposed tower, which is depicted in conceptual renderings as a slender 480-foot-tall building with a glass curtain wall. Plans call for amenity decks at the project's third floor and roof level.
No new parking is planned within the development. Instead, Jamison intends to reallocate 155 parking spaces in the World Trade Center garage for use by residents.
Construction of the tower is expected to occur over approximately 39 months, according to the environmental study.

As future Mayor of Los Angeles, I will propose a new World Trade Center skyscraper complex for downtown Los Angeles. The complex will replace the existing Bunker Hill Towers complex and will have connectivity to the Metro E (Expo) and A (Blue) Lines. It will have an observation deck, known as One World Observatory Los Angeles. The first WTC skyscraper in the complex will be 1,650 feet tall, making it the new tallest building in Los Angeles and California.

Better to focus on shorter and more. Sightlines in the first 100 ft. or so create an integrated urban feel with a sense of activity and belonging (and hopefully beauty as well).

Anything beyond that is more about juvenile ego and lack of self-confidence. It wants to create a sense of separation from the city, in its own private world.

Can you give a picture example of this please? I'm trying to understand this sightline rule.

It's not a rule. It's just that when you are in an area with mid or high-rise buildings, it's only the bottom 80 ft. or so that you can really see. The higher floors are straight up and hard to see or blocked by the buildings near you.

The world's great cities are often low-rise: London, Berlin, Paris, Madrid, Amsterdam, etc. Taller buildings are moved out to clusters in the suburbs.

Even in cities that have high rise, the best neighborhoods for visiting and living in are the low-rise ones (in NY: Greenwich Village over mid-town or Wall St.; in SF: North Beach, SoMa, Mission, Castro better than the Embarcadero or Financial Dist.; in LA: Hollywood, WeHo and SaMo over downtown or Century City).
