New Angles Of The 66-Story Figueroa Centre Development
Architectural plans published by the Downtown Los Angeles Neighborhood Council have unveiled new images depicting Figueroa Centre, a 1-million-square-foot development planned just north of L.A. Live.
The project, slated for a nearly two-acre property at 911-927 S. Figueroa Street, calls for the construction of a 66-story building containing 220 hotel rooms, 200 condominiums, and 94,000 square feet of ancillary uses, including shops, restaurants, meeting and event space, a school, and 583 parking spaces within a nine-level podium. The proposed development’s hotel component would occupy 17 floors atop the podium, while the condominiums would occupy the uppermost 35 floors of the building.
CallisonRTKL is designing Figueroa Centre, which is portrayed as a modern glass and steel tower with an architectural peak of 975 feet above ground level. The building, which would be the third tallest in Los Angeles if completed today, would greet passersby along Figueroa with a glass atrium and outdoor seating. The project would include shared amenities for residents and hotel guests, such as a pool, lounge areas, gardens, a spa, and a fitness center.
Developer Regalian, LLC, pending approvals by the City of Los Angeles, is anticipating breaking ground on Figueroa Centre in 2020 and completing the project in 2023, according to an environmental report published last year.
Figueroa Centre is one of two residential and hotel developments planned on either side of the newly-restored Hotel Figueroa, the other being the 57-story Olympic Tower. Numerous other high-rise projects are either planned or under construction on surrounding blocks, including Olympia, Metropolis, 1020 Figueroa, and Oceanwide Plaza.
Though Figueroa Centre would be the city’s third tallest building if completed today, two other projects are in the works that would eclipse the proposed 66-story tower in height. On Bunker Hill, both the Angels Landing and 333 Figueroa developments call for buildings standing more than 1,000 feet in height.
