When does this project move into the "U/C" sub forum?

When concrete is poured. I know concrete has already been pored but I think it has to be the big foundation concrete pour

^ We can move it when we see rebar for the foundation being put in place, which would indicate the start of structural construction.

It's like a mixture of Santa Monica Place and The Bloc.

This tower will make a big impact on the skyline being on the southern end.

That's why I'm even more excited for this project than Metropolis!

Agreed. Fig central is truly a skyline altering project. With hopefully more to come in that area in the very near future. Circa may be shorter but its pulling its weight too in the southern stretch of downtown. Waiting for the day the skyline is fully south and meets the 10 freeway.

I went to go check out the fly through video and Oceanwide forced Urbanize LA to take the video down. I wonder why.

The Joel Kotkin opinion piece in the Times failed to address the real reasons for the densification of Los Angeles, namely that there's no more land available for low-density suburban development and just as important the post-babyboomers are no longer enamored with that product.

Love the Oceanside Plaza!

Yes. At least according to the most recent updates on the projects thread titles. (For future reference, the thread title states the height of the building in feet )

Anyway, it says that the tallest tower in this project is 677', while Metropolis' tallest is 647'. This may not be completely accurate, because I know it was news to most of us recently that Metropolis did not include podium levels in their towers floor count, so it depends on where that person got their height info.

I feel Oceanwide will have a bigger impact for this reason as well. Metropolis is buried within an already tall CBD and Oceanwide will do more to move the skyline South despite being roughly the same height.

From an urban design standpoint I do wish it didn't look so much like a Vegas resort, though. Blech!

They downsized the tallest metropolis by 20 feet but upped the third tower by 10. Sounds weird but check the metropolis thread for more information.

The street level interaction is uglier but more pedestrian friendly than Metropolis.

I kind of see your point about which will have a greater impact, OVP or Metro. But I don't see a problem with a little Las Vegas/Tokyo in Los Angeles. The city is big and diverse enough to absorb it without it in anyway defining it. Plus that's kind of vibe the area has, or at least moving in that direction. So actually I say bring it on and more please.

^^^ I agree, People are up in defense over this project but it fits the area like its suppose to. No necessarily asking for more, but this isn't bad for what it is. Hopefully the Luxe site becomes legit. It will add to the district.

Erm..this is right across the street from Staples Center/LA Live. You know..this thing.

This is a block north.

A Vegas style resort across the street from a event center that could fit right at home on the strip.
