LOS ANGELES | 1027 Wilshire | HEIGHT | 52 FLOORS

Location: 1027 Wilshire Boulevard
Function: Residential | 402 Units
Developer: Amidi Group
Architect: Chris Dikeakos Architects
Completion: 2010

1027 Wilshire Blvd.

Amidi Real Estate Group and the Central City Development Group have announced plans for a 52-story residential tower at 1027 Wilshire Blvd. in City West. Hamid Behdad, the former city adaptive reuse czar and president of CCDG, said the project would include 402 condominiums. The construction price of the glass and steel tower is estimated at $380 million; the 522,000-square-foot development would hold 890 parking spaces. Project officials hope to break ground in the first quarter of 2008 and expect construction to last 36 to 40 months.

1027 Wilshire Developers Remain Optimistic, but Need Financing

By Stephen Friday
January 11, 2008

Following up on our post earlier this week about the design refinements of the 1027 Wilshire tower in City West, we spoke to Central City Group Development to get an update on the project.

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.”

Furthermore, their faith in Downtown’s long-term residential market has not wavered, as the large scale of 1027 Wilshire is not expected to change or go rental.

The 52-story, 402-unit glass condominium project obtained entitlements in September 2006 and is currently in the plan check phase.

I really love this building. Not going to get my hopes up at all though, we've been shown quite a few times in the past and recently that nothing is for sure until it's actually complete.

Don't count on it breaking ground in 2008 at ALL. That is unless the prediction that Real Estate will rebuild itself at year's end comes to fruition.

i've always hated that building. The only thing good about it is its height. I hope they at least redesign it to be bland as hell. It looks like a 90's reincarnation of 1100 Wilshire. It belongs in China or Texas.

Nope. The last I heard is that it may break grond in 2010(but probably later).

I wish so, too; though I seem to have a different taste for the look of new construction in Downtown than many other L.A. SSP forumers.

Definitely doesn't have an LA/SoCal look to it, but on the bright side one can look at it as contributing to architectural diversity. In a general sense, I like the bulk and mass it adds to the skyline; always a plus.

That parking ratio is a monster, does LA have a 1 off-street space per bedroom minimum requirement?

^ I agree. I also think LA needs some super talls to make the skyline more visible, and astonishing. Nevertheless, it is still looking pretty good.

It doesn't look LA.
How it will be lit up?
Thats something I would care about.
Cause 100% of the tallest buildings are lit up, either neon sign or w/e.
It looks so much like Gas Company Tower.
THEY MUST LIT THE TOP!
