LOS ANGELES | 643 North Spring Street | 270 FT | 26 FLOORS

Studio Gang unveils its first Los Angeles project: A wavy, 26-story tower in Chinatown

Chicago-based architecture firm Studio Gang has signed on to design an eye-catching 26-story apartment and hotel tower in Chinatown.

The widely-respected firm has designed numerous projects in Chicago, San Francisco, and New York, including the expansion of the American Museum of Natural History. This would be its first in Los Angeles.

“The site is at the nexus at a lot of different nodes of development,” says Studio Gang design principal Weston Walker, citing the rapidly developing Arts District and the recently reopened Los Angeles State Historic Park.

The prominent site, near Cesar Chavez Avenue and North Spring Street, “really calls for a great piece of architecture,” Walker says.

The slim, curving tower would hold 300 apartments, 149 hotel rooms, shops, and public open space. Planned for 643 North Spring Street, it would rise 270 feet, or 26 stories, and measure just 55 feet wide.

“The building’s narrow form allows for fresh air and sunlight in every unit,” according to Studio Gang.

An added bonus of the building’s narrow, wavy shape is that because it’s not a rectangular block, “you never get that feeling of [the building] being a wall,” says Jeanne Gang, the firm’s founder and a MacArthur fellow.
