LOS ANGELES | 11th & Hill | FT | 63 FLOORS
First Look at the 63-Story Tower Planned at 11th & Hill


A proposed high-rise development in Downtown's booming South Park neighborhood takes inspiration from California's famed Redwood trees.

A revised plan, first reported by the Australian website, calls for a larger 63-story edifice designed by Sydney-based Koichi Takada Architects. It is described as featuring multiple "trunks - like tall trees growing," and would incorporate natural building materials - including timber. A rendering portrays the project from the east as featuring two masses, rising toward sloping roof lines capped with trees.

The tower would greet the corner of 11th and Hill with an undulating canopy, a reference to the blowing skirt of actress Marilyn Monroe in the film The Seven Year Itch.

According to a representative of Koichi Takada Architects, the project will retain the same 528 residential units as in the original plan. Other components of the proposed development include 5,544 square feet of ground-floor retail space, a podium rooftop pool, health facilities, and community greenspace.

Very nice. The form bears a striking resemblance to 940 N Michigan Ave:

New renderings. Height has been reduced to 520ft / 42 floors?

Still a really cool building though, and still higher than 500+, I think the reduction was already mentioned a while back (unless this is another one).

Wonder when this will break ground.

Very nice!

This is old but I don't think was ever posted. I really love this project


LOS ANGELES — An Australian developer is pushing ahead with new plans for a $500 million skyscraper in downtown Los Angeles that would house both condominiums and a hotel, it was reported Monday.

Crown Group has been planning to develop property it owns at Hill and 11th streets since 2018 but recently reworked its proposal to include a trendy hotel in a newly designed 43-story tower meant to evoke a California redwood tree, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Although the COVID-19 pandemic has slammed residential sales, shuttered many hotels and made construction more challenging, Crown Group is betting that demand for its building will be revived in time for the planned 2025 opening.
