Environmental Study Released for World Trade Center Apartment Tower
Plans from Jamison Services, Inc. to redevelop a portion of the Los Angeles World Trade Center with an apartment tower are inching toward approval.
An environmental study recently published by the City of Los Angeles offers new information on the proposed development, which would rise at 350 S. Figueroa Street. Plans call for the partial demolition of the World Trade Center's parking garage and retail concourse to make way for a 41-story high-rise containing 570 apartments in a mix of one-, two-, and three-bedroom floor plans. Jamison proposes to reallocate 155 parking spaces in the center's garage for use by residents.
Designed by CallistonRTKL, the slender glass-and-steel tower would rise to an architectural apex of 480 feet. Amenity decks would be placed at the building's third floor and above its roof, which would be distinguished from nearby office towers by an angled crown.
Construction of the tower is expected to occur over approximately 39 months.
