A new look and a bit taller, but all of that comes with delays.

Proposed 50-story DTLA apartment tower takes another step forward

Completion is set to occur in 2025

Steven Sharp

November 22, 2021

A draft environmental impact report published last week by the Los Angeles Department of City Planning offers a closer look at a proposal from Mitsui Fudosan America (MFA)to redevelop a Downtown parking garage with a high-rise apartment building.

The project, first submitted to the Planning Department in 2017, had called for the construction of a 40-story tower on a property on the north side of 8th Street between Hope Street and Grand Avenue, featuring a minimum of 547 dwellings above roughly 7,500 square feet of ground-floor commercial space and parking for nearly 600 vehicles.

Updated plans submitted earlier this year to the City of Los Angeles now call for the construction of a taller 50-story tower containing a 580 studio, one, two-, and three-bedroom dwellings with 7,500 square feet of street-fronting retail space. Parking for 636 vehicles would be provided on eight above-grade levels and three subsurface levels.

Designed by Gensler, the approximately 592-foot-tall tower would feature cascading terrace decks stepping back from Hope Street, each of which would be used as an amenity deck for residents. While parking would sit above grade facing Hope Street, residences would line the full Grand Avenue side of the building. Proposed finishes include glass, concrete, aluminum, and stone.

Per the environmental impact report, construction of the 8th, Grand, and Hope tower is anticipated to occur over a roughly 36-month period concluding in 2025.

MFA, a subsidiary of the Japanese conglomerate Mitsui Fudosan, has been a landowner in Downtown Los Angeles since the 1980s, but only recently began developing its holdings. The company is already in the midst of construction two blocks west at 8th and Figueroa Street, where a 42-story apartment building has replaced a surface parking lot.

Can we get a mod to update the thread title to include the address (754 S. Hope St.), the newest proposed building height of 592 ft., and the new floor count of 50 stories please?

I love the modern design and clean lines of this building, and hope it gets quickly approved by planning and city council. Anyone know of the funding source for this project? My only concern is that too many DTLA residential buildings are required to have ground floor retail. There are already too many empty store fronts, so it would be nice if that retail could be removed from some projects so that residential life met the street level to create a more cohesive neighborhood feel. Just my opinion.

Got kind of an updated Humble Oil Tower vibe to it. I like it.

Is this actually UC or moved here by mistake?

This makes me think it's definitely not UC yet (and may not even be approved either, but probably will)

I don't normally like skyscrapers that emphasize the horizontal more than the vertical in their designs, but this one's an exception for me.

It feels like it fits in well with the general vibe of Los Angeles. Long, shady balconies with expansive views are great for our climate.

Strongly echoes the LADWP building, too.

Jordan, great call. I now also see the reference to LADWP HQ, which is a classic building. Blesha, no one knows about the start date on this one.

It does, but also gives me strong Sierra Tower vibes (which is one of my favorite residential towers). It's like a big sister and very LA.

Plz ctrl c / ctrl v for Austin
