Last night, the Downtown Los Angeles Neighborhood Council's Planning and Land Use Committee discussed the proposed double mixed-user in South Park from Beverly Hills developer Sonny Astani (and designed by local firm TCA Architects). The latest information shows two adjacent seven-story buildings, with one fronting Grand Avenue and featuring 347 units and 20,000 square feet of retail; the other on Olive comes with 293 units and another 20,000 square feet of retail space. Astani will also build courtyards, balconies, sun decks, and about 600 underground parking spots with accompanying space for nearly 750 bikes. The area is a current dead-zone of surface parking lots near the AT&T Center, so expect little opposition. Astani hopes to start work next year.
