Note: There may be more towers. For now, two are known.
Last week, the Downtown News reported that newly formed developer Mack Urban plans to construct hotel and residential towers on surface parking lots surrounding the AT&T Center. According to a recent case filing with the Department of City Planning, the $750 million mixed-use project’s first buildings will be two high-rise structures at the northeast corner of 12th Street and Grand Avenue. The first tower, containing 461 residential units and 8,700 square feet of ground level retail space, would rise 41 stories at 1120 Grand Avenue. The second, a 300-room hotel with 8,610 square feet of commercial space, would stand 12 stories high. Designed by AC Martin, the joint venture between Mack Urban and AECOM would join the Wilshire Grand Center in utilizing the Los Angeles Fire Department’s newly relaxed rooftop helipad policy. Representatives of AC Martin previously informed the Architect’s Newspaper that at least one building in the decade-long project would feature a “‘sculpted’ top.”
