Once they hit floor 20 it's one floor every four days, so they'll be fine.

Ya to me it seems like they're moving quickly, but I'm no expert in skyscraper construction.

Looks like Onni could be moving on their 40 & 31 story towers at 12th & Hope sooner than expected.

Small structure that is remaining on this relatively small (for LA) lot.

All the following images taken this afternoon - October 2nd, 2014.

Big contrast between a company who gets it (Onni) and a company who clearly doesn't (Hanover).

Wonderful!

Thank you for the photo tour. It's such a joy to watch the evolution of DTLA.

^ Agreed. It's been a bit slow of late in terms of DTLA updates in general, so thanks Hunter!

Olympic/Hill, while certainly a "blah" project, has single-handedly created a nice little street wall on that block. The good news is that the other two TCA-designed projects slated for that block on Olympic probably won't be as offensive looking -- less stucco and more glass, metal, stone, and wood.

8th and Grand might also be a pleasant surprise given the steel frame construction. Fingers crossed!

Thank you both!


These 7-story projects are certainly shitty for DTLA. That being said, it is so weird to walk down streets I've walked down for years and suddenly have an entire view obstructed because a new structure. 8th & Grand, Olympic & Hill, Ava, etc all do this.

My hope with the 7-story developments is their retail spaces are cheap enough to bring cheap reliable eats (like Panera & Chic-Fil-A) into DTLA.

And, if it has 10 floors those floors would have awfully high floor plates. What does your research say? Just curious.

It looks like its only going to be 10 stories tall, but I believe those 10 stories will be large. From the looks of the renderings I would guess 150' - 200'.

I'm weirdly infatuated with this building. It's very interesting, however, I don't love it or hate it. It just doesn't feel right in the AD

Agreed.

So much going on with One Santa Fe. It's like a skyscraper lying on its side.

I think its interesting because its new. Give it 5 - 10 years and it'll be a genuine eyesore... It will lease up very quickly because everyone wants to be in DTLA's closest suburb.




8th & Grand Today, October 8th 2014:


It suddenly went higher than 7 stories. I'm not sure what the extra height it about. Anyone?

N. Fred, that was the original proposal from years back that unfortunately is not what is being built.

DTLADenizen, it looks to me as though they are building the original 8 story version of the project...

Carmel Partners bought the project off of Astani a few years ago. They then downsized and made the project less appealing. Twice. The newest renderings are truly awful.

This is excellent news if its true. Funny how the bar gets lowered so low that this seems like a huge victory. I really hope they're going with that nonetheless.

The framing sure looks like it right or am i trippin?

Ya, the original was amazing, then second version was much worse but still ok for a 7 / 8 story but that last rendering is shit.
