How do you know that Park Fifth won't make it this year? There is a very good chance that it will break ground this year.

Regarding 1027 Wilshire:

As the story goes, ground-breaking has been pushed back until the third quarter of 2008 and funding is still up in the air. However, when asked whether they were confident to find a financial backer, we were told “absolutely.”
Now back to the Park Fifth channel.

I hope that this project gets built.

JDCrash, the not so smart kid...

If I'm not mistaken, you are trying to reference one of the forumers in the downtown thread that mentioned he felt 1027 had a good chance of being built because the developer, until recently, worked with the city ushering projects along. Being that the developer knows the system well, I think the forumer was saying that the project should move along smoothly, and as a result, he felt this project has a better, if not one of the best, chances of being built. I agree with that forumer as well.

Apologies, I guess people are divided on it.

Looks like Park Fifth is still fightin' the good fight. They're not going down just yet. I got this in my inbox this morning...

Park Fifth Quietly Moves Forward

A model of the Park Fifth development stands in the project's Sales Center.

While quiet lately, the massive Park Fifth development slated to rise north of Pershing Square continues to make forward progress. The project submitted its Supplemental Final Environmental Impact Report (EIR) to the Community Redevelopment Agency on March 31st.

A certified EIR would be a major milestone in the process of accumulating the approvals needed to commence construction. Two weeks previous the project also filed Vesting Tentative Tract and Zone Variance applications with the city's Planning Department.

The project Sales Center, located in the neighboring Gas Company Tower, is holding a reception Thursday evening and has extended an invite to Downtown readers.

The reception is Thursday, April 3rd, and runs from 5:30pm - 7:30pm. Enter the building via the corner of 5th and Olive. RSVP's are requested to Theresa Cushing, but I have a suspicion they won't be checking names at the door.

I really, really want this project to move forward. It will do wonders for that area, and might be the impetus that moves the owners of the Clark Hotel to do something, anything with that property.

I hope I hope I hope...

You realize that these units are high-end, right?

Downtown Los Angeles Apr 9, 2008 2:26 AM

Downtown Los Angeles Apr 9, 2008 2:38 AM

Maybe he was trying to say that gazillionaries are recession-proof.

this project looks sick. i really dig the greenery they've got spaced throughout the building. i hope more buildings in the US can move towards rooftop gardens.

JDRCRASH Apr 11, 2008 3:03 PM

I believe the Mayor is in support of that ChicagoPride, so you never know.
