22-Story Zombie Condo Tower Begins Its Rise in South Park

New, 45 comments


The zombie project formerly known as the Glass Tower has finally broken ground in crane-packed South Park, making it the first high-rise condo tower to rise in the area since before the recession (more than seven years, according to the LA Business Journal) and one of only two Downtown condo projects in the works now, according to GlobeSt. The 22-story tower at Grand and Eleventh was first proposed in 2005 and construction was expected to begin way back in 2008. It repeatedly failed to get off the ground, though, and was finally sold and resurrected in 2014 by developer Trumark Urban. It'll have 151 "luxury" condos starting on the sixth floor, plus 5,700 square feet of retail space on the ground floor and a fitness center and pool on the fifth floor. The renderings here are from a May 2014 city document granting the developer an extension. The design was refreshed later in 2014 after the property was bought by Trumark Urban, but most of the details will remain the same. The tower should open in 2016.
