Here’s What Happened During Last Month’s Development & Construction
A small portion of the Broadway Trade Center facade was unveiled, and it’s stunning. The exposed exterior is noticeably cleaner and brighter than before the restoration began.
Canadian developer Onni Group continues their domination of downtown. Their project at 820 S. Olive St has already risen 16 stories, with another 33 to go. Unlike the rendering, the exterior is using white window casings on one half and dark grey casings on the other. It should be interesting to see how it looks upon completion. When the building is finished, it will steal Metropolis’s claim as tallest residential tower in Los Angeles.
CIM Group’s residential tower at 888 S. Hope St, known as Grand Hope Lofts, is getting close to topping out. The glass facade is catching up to the top, but there is still much work to be done. The 34-story tower, which will feature 526 residential units above 5,000 square feet of ground-floor commercial space, is expected to deliver in 2018.
The Park Fifth project is getting closer to lifting off the ground. The concrete foundation has been poured for the seven-story portion of the project. Meanwhile, crews have completely cleared the plot where the 24-story tower will rise. The dual-building mixed-use complex is expected to deliver a total of 660 apartments and 14,000 square feet of ground-floor commercial space by February 2019.
