Construction will begin shortly—in the first quarter of 2014—on the LA Live-adjacent Renaissance Hotel, which will be the fifth Marriott-brand hotel in South Park (there's already the nearby JW Marriott/Ritz tower and the neighboring Courtyard Marriott double tower). Building Los Angeles has revealed renderings from developer Williams & Dame that show another double-towered hotel, with the taller reaching 21 stories. The $200-million Renaissance will hold 450 fancy hotel rooms, a 500-seat restaurant, rooftop pool, and meeting space. The project sits right next to the almost-finished Courtyard Marriott, another Williams & Dane effort, and will replace one of the area's many surface parking lots when it wraps work around 2017.
