Even more action is headed for South Park along Olympic thanks to this new tall tower at Hill Street. Plans were first filed for the project earlier this year, but it wasn't too clear what was going up on the site until now. Urbanize LA reports that the project will be replacing the one-story commercial building that sits there now with a 20-story mixed-use tower (which now seems kind of stubby in comparison to all the 30- and 40-story towers that are headed for various sections of DTLA). The development will hold 232 condos plus 14,000 square feet of groundfloor retail space.
The new structure from developers 940 Hill, LLC will have a four-level parking podium (335 parking spaces total) and resident amenities atop it, including an outdoor pool, a gym, communal spaces. Up on the roof, there will of course be a lounge area, spa, and garden, as well as a giant, fin-like glass wall along the corner of the building. The building's units would range in size from studios all the way up to three-bedrooms, each with a private balcony.
Designs for the tower, referred to as "The Hill" in an upcoming presentation to the Downtown Los Angeles Neighborhood Council, are by DGB-Line, a firm based in Koreatown. The site is one of nearly a dozen projects within a quarter-mile where new projects are already in the works, says Urbanize, including one huge, stubby mixed-user just across the street.
