Not the design I was expecting, nor do I know if I like it, however it is unique.

I do think that it captures some of LA's mid century aesthetic very well, but the material used will either make or brake this project.

ODA normally does good work in NY, I wouldn't worry about the materials. Not sure how I feel about the tower in general though... I expect the design to change anyway.

It's different and not too crazy. Thumbs up, but I think they will change the final design.

Did you see the South Loop project in Chicago or the 701 Fourth Ave project (100+ stories) in Seattle?
I would love to see those towers in Los Angeles. Crescent Heights is very ambitious.
It will take a few years anyway. They did a good job in Century City.

South Park has so much potential.

Yay!! It's the new Park 5th!!! Crescent Heights does fantastic work. I'm super impressed with their century city tower.

It reminds me of that green skyscraper that was supposed to go up on Grand Ave in South Park back in '07. That proposed skyscraper is obviously dead but I'm pretty excited since it resembles a lot like it.

In case someone is planning to make a thread for this, the tower's height is 810 feet. The figure from the article is incorrect.

^ I have mixed reactions about such ambitious projs like those in dtla at this time, or any time. There have been so many false starts & false proposals through the yrs, that it's hard to take them seriously until construction crews & equipment are actually out on the site. But it will be quite impressive if the owner of that proposed tower has the ability to get it underway before everyone is old & gray....greatly dependent on his knowing for certain that dt has the ability to absorb all the new inventory they'd like to build.

U.S.C. Expands in a ‘Neglected’ Neighborhood, Promising Jobs and More

By LAUREN HERSTIK

LOS ANGELES — When the University of Southern California’s campus extension opens in South Los Angeles on Thursday, it will not just welcome 2,700 new college students. It will also be an ambitious test of a public-private partnership hoping to remake a historically underserved neighborhood.

The $700 million USC Village is a sprawling addition to the university, extending across 15 acres as part of the school’s efforts to expand the availability of student housing and increase the amount of academic space it has. The university broke ground on the project in September 2014, part of a $6 billion campaign to bolster its endowment, scholarships, research funds and overall investment.

The project’s scale is enormous, adding a total of three million square feet of student housing, retail, academic and green space. When it opens, it will effectively have added a neighborhood’s worth of stores, including 15 restaurants, a pharmacy, a Trader Joe’s grocery store and a Target. There will be more than 250 trees, nearly 500 underground parking spaces and about 1,500 bike racks.

Though South Los Angeles lies near the city’s booming downtown and the ascendant neighborhood of Inglewood, it has seen little development in past decades. The area was hit by bouts of racial violence in the 1950s and 1960s, setting off a “white flight” that was followed by an exodus of African-Americans after the city’s 1992 riots. Now mostly Latino, South Los Angeles’s two City Council districts are the poorest in the city.

The project has been built to fit in with U.S.C.’s overall aesthetic. Low-slung red brick buildings with a Gothic exterior are grouped around an open public square and a clock tower. Tree-lined avenues lead into the center.

USC Village is one of several substantial construction projects in the neighborhood. The Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, in Exposition Park adjacent to the university, will undergo renovations after the coming N.F.L. season, and the soccer-specific Banc of California Stadium is being built for the Los Angeles Football Club. Both will be used, along with existing facilities, for the 2028 Summer Olympics, for which Los Angeles was recently picked as host city.

I’m really impressed with a lot of their work, or at least renderings. My skepticism stems from there being a lot of renderings but few works actually becoming reality. Many of the works they’ve completed have been renovations, albeit really good renovations. But nothing completed at the scale of this project.

What I really like is the sensitivity they give to designing balcony space for all of their units. It’s seamless, unlike those clumsy protrusions like those on the Whole Foods building.

I'm not sure what the complaints could be about...it's like you all just criticize any little thing. I'm like are you happy at home? The balconies with this tower would be a first for DTLA, and I'm talking about wrap around balconies. Not to be ugly, but in my experience...the people who can't afford, typically have the most issues with things.

I think that's the best part of the tower.

I’m assuming that’s toward my post since I mentioned the balconies, but read my post carefully. And even if I did have a problem with the balconies, just stop. I notice your comments always take things too personal, get insulting, childish and ugly when you disagree with someone.

Dude, let's not get beside ourselves. My statement was in general...I actually don't remember your post.

As far the last sentence in your post, maybe that's a reflection of self. Be it as it may, I was stating my opinion. I do feel that some people in here find something to complain about no matter how great or nice the tower.
