Oh yeah back in 2016, Century City and the surrounding area were just babies! That proposal might be dead, no rumblings for quite some time.

Not necessarily It's a long term plan. I never saw anything that would stop it.

It would likely be used for entertainment companies, and there doesn't seem a slow down for that space.

I'm impressed with all the ongoing proposals in LA taking into account talk fo an urban exodus and economic forecasts. It could just be that the amount of wealth in LA's favored quarter is enough to keep that particular area economically viable.

SF has not scene any new highrise proposals that I'm aware of since the pandemic;

I would expect significant changes to the plan as it was drawn up in 2016. The property still remains in the hands of the Murdoch family, and it's primary value is still in real estate, but that plan to add more offices likely won't move forward any time soon given the type of companies they would have targeted at the time have all inked deals around town in pretty high-profile developments. The latest article on this is from 2019.

Looks like they've lowered the total amount of parking from 548 spaces to 477, and shrunk the parking podium. Compare these new renderings to the older ones:

The project looks much better as a result. This is gonna be beautiful!

I attended the virtual presentation/public forum and the developer mentioned that he expects that this will be one of the most 4 or 5 expensive buildings in LA. Not sure why that surprised me, but it did.

Thank you for the update but in the future remember to post DTLA project updates in the DTLA City Compilation thread.

It's quite expensive for the relatively small size of its footprint I guess. So what do you think are the chances of this huge project being approved without major changes such as to the height, overall size, shape etc?

Love this project, that place will always be packed along with Circa. Prime real estate going vertical adding plenty of density to the chain of towers from DTLA. Another project across the streets needs approval and it's quite a bit taller I believe. I'm also itching for 925 S. Figueroa to get approval, or at least hear something about it, that's one of my favorite designs downtown.

Is there a thread for the Pico and Fig. tower? Can't seem to find it, and that's still a 500+ correct?

Yea that'd be awesome. What's the status on 1045 Olive?

There are a lot of cool proposals in LA but they seems to just drop off the face of the planet and never be heard from again.

I think he meant in terms of consumer cost, not construction cost.

Yes, it was in regards to how much apartments will cost.

This isn't the correct thread, but Fig + Pico is a two-tower project (both hotels). The 42-story building will rise 529 feet, the 25-story 326 feet.

EDIT: Created a thread.

The latest 2020 World Almanac didn't even have them on the list of L.A. tall buildings above 500', even though buildings under construction are supposed to be listed. Even the city diagrams link on skyscrapers page doesn't give a height, although it does say 46 floors. Seems like the want to keep the final height a secret. Won't be a secret much longer. At 600' they would be as tall as the famous cylindrical Marina City towers in Chicago, which were one of the early pioneers of a concrete core structure back in the mid 1960s.

^ I believe they are sitting about 10 feet lower, elevation, wise. Ave of the Stars is kind of the crest of a hill, and the ground slopes downward when you go east and west of it. I believe the western direction slopes down a bit faster than going east. At least that's my experience working in Century Plaza Towers and walking over to the mall for about 2 years.

From that location it appears they are shorter, but maybe that is a perspective thing, since the theme triangles are closer from this viewpoint. Plus as colemonkee says, the hotel towers are at a slightly lower elevation. Maybe they will tie the triangles in height, but I'm still hoping for 600'. Still have a bit before top out. Keep the good pics coming. We ex-LA'ers and pandemic stay at homers rely on them. The pic you took of DTLA with snowy Mt. Baldy was worthy of a postcard

PS everybody wear a mask & be careful. The virus is everywhere but hopefully we are at or near the peak, and things will get better soon as they did in Italy, Spain, NYC etc.
