The 78 story building is the massive Park fifth project, on Fifth and Olive, where the parking lot is across from Pershing square. there is a rumor that it will start construction in June. it is a 78 story building, a 37 story building and 2 15 story buildings on the lot. It will have a "window like" feature with a restaurant above it with views of the park. Also, it was reported that the same developer was going to redo Pershing Square. The renders are available in the Los Angeles threads.

Not bad. Hopefully more towers will go up around it, connecting it to the surrounding skyline.

a Bunch of 30 - 55 story buildings are planned for that area between the Ritz and the main cluster, a couple under construction, a bulk proposed. there is a taller office building planned as well, that would probably be closer to 700 - 800 feet.

I can't wait to see what will happen to those lots directly north of LA Live once the entire complex is completed.

@NYguy: With all the constructions, fantasies, proposals and visions in Los Angeles, our development boom should be a force to be reckoned with, rivaling even your city's Roaring 20's boom!

In fact, i'm suprised the New York media hasn't been watching and announcing our prosperity!
I mean, if what LosAngelesSportsFan says is true, we may soon be building up more than Dubai!
And yes, i'm jealous of New York City

Building more that Dubai? You are not serious with that comment.

Yeah, I guess I did get a little carried away with the Dubai thing

I'm just so excited about what lies ahead for the revitalization of Downtown Los Angeles!

Well, some media sources have it breaking ground today. I'll try to keep an eye on it through the web cam, but you don't get a very good view of the hotel plot. If anyone's around there today, try to walk by and see if you can see any activity in the "pit".

Take a look at the web cam. They've removed half of the ramp from Georgia St. that provided vehicle access to the site and built a new one on the east end that accesses the site from Olympic. It looks like they're getting ready to start in a hurry. We should be moving this into the construction forums soon.

Check the webcam. Lots of progress has been made on the structure adjacent to the ESPN Building. They're working on the 4th level now.
