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.
