*name changed again, to Oceanwide Plaza

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Project revived 2013 as Fig Central. Previously:

Location: 11th St. and Figueroa St.
Function: Mixed Use | 860 Units | 222 Hotel Rooms | 250,000 SF Retail
Developer: The Moinian Group
Architect: RTKL Associates
Completion: 2011





--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Construction is imminent.

From SSP:

Well it looks like I have to issue a retraction. LA Central sure looks like it's headed to a groundbreaking very soon. They have temporary lighting on the property and they are building a construction fence out to the sidewalk on Figueroa and out to the street on 12th. That jibes with the renderings. Take a look...



Two pics from 12th street







Now two from Figueroa






This one is blurry, but the sign says "Morley Construction Company" and they've locked some small earth moving equipment behind the fence that looks like it could be used for the asphalt excavation. Nothing as big as a front end loader. More like some bobcat type stuff.

Newly re-worked as a 575 ft. tower with two 530 ft. towers:

Great news. Would it be impossible to put the height in meters? Those feets tells nothing to me.
The metric system is the work of the devil.:lol: I'm sure a mod can edit it though.

LA Central is a part of the new LA Sports and Entertainment district...or LA Live. Think of it as a Times Square West..but not.

If that band of advertising along Figueroa is LED screens, that will really help to brighten up that block, extending the "Times Square" effect an additional block, and hopefully energizing that area beyond times when Staples has an event.

Who knows? Mabye the 'LA Live' ( ;) ) effect will start with Concerto.
