First Look at the 35-Story SoLA Village Megaproject Headed Just South of Downtown

“Whoa” comes to mind at these very tall designs for SoLA Village, the massive, $1-billion development that could be heading for two parking lots near the Reef Building (formerly known as the LA Mart), just outside of Downtown in Historic South-Central. The 1.66-million-square-foot development is just south of Washington Boulevard on either side of Broadway—an area that, in sharp contrast to its neighbors just north of the freeway (South Park, DTLA), has been pretty overlooked in terms of big-time fancy development. We just reported that the project, being developed by the Reef people, would include a 208-room hotel, nearly 1,500 residential units, retail, restaurants and bars, and a grocery store, which is pretty big news for this part of town. Today, the ante’s been upped. The hotel, we now learn, will be 19 stories tall. And of the 1,449 residential units will be spread across two condo towers of 32 and 35 stories!
