Mack Urban Wants to Start With Hotel and Residential Towers

Quote:
Last week, the Downtown News reported that newly formed developer Mack Urban plans to construct hotel and residential towers on surface parking lots surrounding the AT&T Center. According to a recent case filing with the Department of City Planning, the $750 million mixed-use project's first buildings will be two high-rise structures at the northeast corner of 12th Street and Grand Avenue. The first tower, containing 461 residential units and 8,700 square feet of ground level retail space, would rise 41 stories at 1120 Grand Avenue. The second, a 300-room hotel with 8,610 square feet of commercial space, would stand 12 stories high. Designed by AC Martin, the joint venture between Mack Urban and AECOM would join the Wilshire Grand Center in utilizing the Los Angeles Fire Department's newly relaxed rooftop helipad policy. Representatives of AC Martin previously informed the Architect's Newspaper that at least one building in the decade-long project would feature a "'sculpted' top."

Here are AC Martin's latest designs for the Mack Urban/AECOM development:

http://buildinglosangeles.blogspot.c...rk-towers.html

1120 Grand Avenue will stand 37 stories, with 512 condominiums and slightly under 10,000 square feet of ground-floor retail. The building will have a roof height of 386 feet, augmented by a 100-foot spire.



1155 Olive Street will rise 12 stories/142 feet, with 154 condominiums and 11,000 square feet of retail space. Designs also call for blue LED lighting to frame the building. Earlier plans had called for a hotel, but it appears that's out.

Some good infill for the area. Increased densification is great. Replacing some of those parking lots is always a plus.

I hope the spire is ornamental and more than just a pole sticking out the top, maybe something like a stair like spire, leading to the apex.

I liked the more slanted roof more, but this isn't terrible. It is a step in the right direction for Los Angeles, sadly we are still somewhat behind.

Also is there any news if the spire will still be on it?
