Fresh Renderings for Two DTLA Apartment TowersPlanned near the intersection of 12th and Grand.




Architectural plans posted by the Downtown Los Angeles Neighborhood Council offer a sneak peak at updated designs for a proposed high-rise development at the intersection of 12th Street and Grand Avenue.
The project, called Arris, is being developed by City Century - the American affiliate of the Chinese real estate firm Shenglong Group. Plans call for razing a 1930s warehouse and surface parking lot at 1201 S. Grand Avenue, making way for the construction of a new 40-story tower featuring 312 studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments above 359 parking stalls and 7,100 square feet of ground-floor retail space.

MVE + Partners is designing the proposed development, which is depicted in renderings as a glass-and-steel building rising approximately 456 feet in height. The new housing - which would be accompanied by a rooftop deck, a fitness center, and a swimming pool - would sit atop a five-level parking podium which would be partially masked by residential units.

Renderings included with the presentation also reveal a new design for Vara, a smaller high-rise development which City Century is planning a short distance south at 1233 S. Grand Avenue. The project, which is currently in plan check, is described as a 21-story structure which would feature 161 apartments above a semi-subterranean parking garage line with ground-floor retail space.

Apartment tower at 12th & Grand shoots for 2022 groundbreaking



The developer behind a proposed high-rise apartment building at 12th Street and Grand Avenue in Downtown hopes to break ground on the project as early as next year, according to an environmental report published by the Los Angeles Department of City Planning.
City Century, the American subsidiary of Chinese real estate firm Shenglong Group, is seeking approvals to raze a 1930s structure at 1201 S. Grand Avenue, making way for a 40-story tower containing 312 studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments above a 7,100 square feet of ground-floor retail space and a 359-car garage. The developer's website names the project "Arris."
MVE + Partners is designing the approximately 461-foot-tall tower, which is depicted in renderings as a contemporary glass-and-steel high-rise wrapped in cantilevered balconies. Plans call for on-site amenities including a rooftop deck, a fitness center, and a swimming pool. Residential units along the exterior of the buildings podium would mask some above-grade parking from view.
The project, according to a construction timeline included with the environmental report, is expected to be built over a period of 33 months, beginning sometime in 2022. The tower would be ready for move-ins by 2025, under that schedule.
