LOS ANGELES | 820 Olive Street | 637 FT | 50 FLOORS

Location: 820 Olive Street
Function: Mixed-use | 516 units | 4,500 SF retail
Architect: Chris Dikeakos Architects
Developer: Onni Group
Timeline: 2016 (groundbreaking) to 2018 (completion)


820 Olive Street

Last, but definitely not least, is the tallest of the three developments. 820 Olive Street, currently a surface parking lot, would be developed by the Onni Group into a 50-story tower containing 583 residences above 4,500 square feet of ground floor commercial space. Standing 637 feet high, 820 Olive Street would be amongst the tallest residential buildings in the state of California. The tower, which would actually rise on the Hill Street side of the project site, features a five-story podium structure spanning the length of the property. Although the podium does contain an approximately 600-car garage, parking accommodations would screened by residential units on both the Olive and Hill Street sides of the parcel. Residential amenities would include an outdoor pool deck on the seventh level, providing access to two-story townhouse units on the northern side of the property. Exterior materials are listed as concrete, prefinished metal paneling, perforated metal paneling, stone and glass.

As seems to be the case everywhere you look in South Park these days, 820 Olive Street might be joined by another tall neighbor. In addition to Onni's tower already underway next-door, developer Carmel Partners has plans for a 27-story high-rise just across the street. The San Francisco-based firm is already very familiar with the neighborhood, having started construction on the long-stalled G8 development in early 2013. The 700-unit monolith, which will occupy the majority of a full city block, is set to feature a long-awaited Whole Foods Market on its ground floor.
