A new residential tower is under construction, rising at its project site at 230 West Olympic Boulevard and 1000 South Hill Street in Downtown Los Angeles. The project proposal includes the construction of a high-rise tower offering space for residential and commercial uses, along with onsite parking. The project replaced a surface parking lot on the site.
Onni Group is the project developer. IBI Group is serving as the architect, taking the reins from Chris Dikeakos Architects, which handled the entitlement design.
Nine months after ground breaking, concrete and rebar have risen nearly 20 floors above ground. The project will bring a 54-story high-rise tower offering 685 apartments above a podium-like structure containing a garage and commercial space on the ground floor. The parking garage will have space for 1000 cars.
The project plans were revised; previously, the tower was imagined as a 60-story, approximately 760-foot-tall building that would have ranked as the fourth tallest in the city. The amount of housing planned has also been cut from the original plan of 700 dwellings. The project site is located at the intersection of Olympic Boulevard and Hill Street.
Renderings reveal a tall glass-and-steel high-rise elevated to a height of 590 feet. The design remains somewhat similar to the first iteration, however, revised plans call for masking above-grade parking with habitable spaces and residential units along both Olympic and Hill.
Construction of the tower is anticipated to be completed over period of approximately 30 months.
