I don't believe that's true, you can very clearly see the tower footprint in the construction site.

Curious how this one is gonna happen in West Hollywood, but I hope it does. The project looks significantly better than its prior iteration.

I love the design, but I think this location is better suited to a blocky building forming a street wall, with that structure located somewhere else along the strip.

I feel like there is a street wall on the pedestrian level. What happens three or four levels above the sidewalk doesn't concern me as much. The Edition Hotel is very set back and doesn't provide much in terms of the pedestrian experience. This proposal is much better in terms of that.

Morphosis the architects. It's so ridiculous, wow. And imagine the pancake stack tower down the street playing off each other. Oh and Gwenneth's Art's Club building if it survives the public vote next year.

I like it

The commenters are crazy NIMBYs. The city will always be changing... its inevitable. I personally welcome daring designs and architecture... or would you rather have another glass box and look like Vancouver?

This is what LA needs, Architects need to take notice, not saying that every project needs a crazy design but bland glass boxes with podiums is really starting to get old.

I think Jamison is developing both properties. These towers are easily the ugliest design Perkins + Will has ever produced but I appreciate the density. The 1500 parking spaces and spotty pedestrian interface I can do without. I do applaud Jamison for continually using new architects, though. Their collaborations with LARGE are certainly the best, but it's nice for a large scale developer to not continually use TCA or some other similarly acronymic "architectural" studio.

Two different projects.

Here's the article for 3470 Wilshire: https://urbanize.la/post/another-k-t...ay-development

Here's the article for 3600 Wilshire (renderings above): https://urbanize.la/post/two-more-towers-koreatown

Honestly though, THIS is a Sunset Strip I'm sooo here for.

I'm gonna agree and take it a step further. WDCH, basically every semi-garish Gehry proposal, LAPD building, Emerson College, Vespertine, that weirdo tower in Culver City, the PDC. Even though I may not love all of these designs, damnit, they're at least interesting. LA is one of the few cities where nothing seems out of place and anything goes. I'm here all day for these types of projects, especially in Hollywood.

Exactly. If these buildings can't be built in LA then they don't belong anywhere really. LA is built on architectural experiments (that sometimes fail). I wouldn't have it any other way.
