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 CommercialRealEstate.com, 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.
