Here's a quick trip down amnesia lane, some past proposals for this site-

There's an oldie but a goodie on page 18 here-

Let's hope the umpteenth time is the charm.

"Approximately 695ft."

https://planning.lacity.org/eir/nops/945_W_8thSt/IS.pdf

For reference, Cesar Pelli's neighboring 777 Figueroa St. is 725ft., and (across the street) Metropolis's tallest tower is 647 ft.

Was hoping this project would be in the 750-800ft. range, but not bad.

Thank you for the update.

That one looks like a nice addition.

777 Figueroa was designed by Cesar Pelli.

I think a lot of people confuse the two...at least in name only.

Site Prep Underway for 64-Story Tower Next to Figat7th
https://urbanize.la/post/site-prep-u...-next-figat7th

Quote:

Marmol Radziner and LARGE Architecture are designing the tower, which has been given the address 960 W. 7th Street. It is portrayed as a slender high-rise building, featuring a rooftop observation deck, a podium-level pool deck, and other common open spaces. Architectural plans indicate that the building would stand nearly 695 feet in height when measured from 8th Street.
Does the address need to be changed?

Philadelphia already claimed this design a couple of years ago.

This is definitely under construction.

JRinSoCal Jun 4, 2020 11:03 PM

anyone have any recent pic of the construction progress?

Is the official height still 695? Looks about that.

KellyEdwards Jun 12, 2020 10:50 AM

This is a bit old, but I managed to be there (by accident) when they were assembling the crane.

The crane has been operational for a couple weeks now.

I wonder whether, after all the dust settles from this virus, L. A. or any other city will need quite as many office towers. This working from home thing could catch on and its a hell of a lot cheaper for large employers not to have to provide office space for all of their employees. Similarly, how many people are going to want to be jammed into high rise residence towers if there is any other option available.

LAsam Jun 16, 2020 6:44 PM

^ A counterpoint is that employers have been moving towards more efficient office use of space, in that they cram employees in tighter and tighter in a "collaborative" setting. With a likely reversal of that trend for health safety purposes, employers will need more square feet per employee than they previously did.

colemonkee Jun 17, 2020 12:09 AM

From all the conversations I've had with people who make these kinds of decisions for large companies (10,000-80,000 employees), it's more likely that telecommuting/working from home will increase, and office footprints will get smaller, not larger. Then again, we're only 3 1/2 months into this thing, so who really knows at this point.

caligrad Jun 19, 2020 12:24 AM

Walking and driving around LA, seeing soooo many people not wearing masks, sometimes myself when i forget, and seeing sooooo many people shrug off what's happening. In terms of office space, i think we'll see less demand with more working from home, but people still need housing, cant build single family homes endlessly so i feel, just like the spanish flu, once this is over, it'll be business as usual.
