Last I heard Onni was planning on waiting to see how this project fills up before they started construction on the 50 story sibling next door and seeing how they seem to be rushing to pull forward on the other 3 towers down by staples center, I wouldn't be surprised if they started work on those first than the 50 story one..... to be honest I'd rather take the 3 than to just have one that may not fill.

Will the 50 story twin also be apts or is there a possibility for condos? With such high quality design/construction I imagine they could make a grip selling them as condos.

Hm, I doubt that. They already had some important meetings and the public hearing. I am pretty sure, that they will start in early 2015.. but not later than May. The Onni group is not known for playing the "waiting game". (even so the first project was very late..)

Of course.. you never know, but I have a very good feeling.

I actually wasn't speculating or guessing.... Before this tower even rose above 5 floors, one of the head people from onni in one of the meetings stated that they wanted to see how the market looked and how well this building sold before they even wanted to break ground on the 50 story and they also said if they felt the market wasn't strong enough that they would pull forward on the other 3 towers before hand until the market worked out for luxury condos. Not speculation. Public hearings and interviews. They may not play the waiting game in Canada but in the USA, different playing field. But who knows. With all the construction going on and planned. They probably feel the market is more than strong to jump start on the 50 story one.

Yes, but even the "head people" come up with different stories. (almost every month) Example: John Eichler, Executive Director of Fig Central wrote me in February: "Mr. XXXXXX, the below information that I gave is correct, except for the following Greenland is probably 6+ months away from starting construction; not 12 months."

We all know that they changed the design and the timeline, so I wouldn't trust a word too much.

The Onni Group is used to some projects in the USA (Chicago, Phoenix) They will watch the market, but the US market is good. The tower in Chicago offers 643,323 rentable square feet and the available space is only 17,206 sq.ft... L.A. is growing fast, we got the public transportation and we have billions in Chinese (plus other foreign) investments. I am of course not sure about the 820 Olive Street - Project and the luxury condos, but like I said, I am very positive.

^^^ Eh....still think onnis other 3 towers are at the starting line while the 50 story is still warming up. More chatter about the other 3, more public hearings, more investors shown the sites, events held on the sites and documents making their way through city hall already. The 50 story is currently *crickets crickets crickets*

Three? Onni only has 2 other projects planned, the two tower project and the 50 story. There is another Canadian firm planning to start construction on a highrise but that's not Onni :p

Crickets... They were doing some kind of soil testing at the site of the future Onni's 50 stories tower on Hill.

^^^ Great news. Hopefully that actually amounts to something. Anybody check out any info from the permits ? that tends to give us more information about whats going on at the site rather than a picture of soil testing.
