Hunter is the only one who lives in a bubble.

The problem is, that he doesn't learn. He comes up with the same topic.. over and over again.

His list isn't a list to make us happy. His list has only one purpose, he want's to be right, but he won't, because he doesn't know enough, he is a photographer and he should stick to his business.

There's a very thin line between this being interesting versus "interesting." They should really simplify the design by sticking with 1-2 motifs.

The scale is nice though, especially given the location.

Why was the original 840' corrected to say 740' in the title, yet the renderings show an architectural height of 840' ?

Look at the drawing, its "ground" level starts at 100ft. The 840 figure must include below ground parking, although that would be a mighty deep hole.

The height might just refer to height above sea level (not ground level).

Mixed-Use Tower Slated to Replace Los Angeles Car Wash
Quote:
A sure sign that Los Angeles is urbanizing and slowly but surely shedding its auto-centric image, a car wash at the corner of Olympic Boulevard and Figueroa Street is slated for major intensification. Neman Real Estate Investments has appointed architect Nardi Associates to design the Olympic Tower, which is seeking a height of 57 storeys and 226 metres, and if approved, would become one of the city's tallest buildings.
