A 66-story tower next to the Hotel Figueroa in South Park could break ground by 2020 and be complete by 2023 if all goes according to developers’ plans, say new documents from the department of city planning.
The project would contain 220 hotel rooms, 200 condos, and about 94,000 square feet of commercial space. Amenity space for hotel guests and residents would be located on the 10th floor, atop the building’s nine-story podium, and on the 11th floor.
The tower, called Figueroa Centre, would be designed by CallisonRTKL in a “contemporary architectural style” mixing glass, stone, and metal details, and employing parapets along the roofline.
The project at James M. Wood Boulevard and Figueroa would sprout from what’s currently a parking lot.
The tower stands to become the third tallest building Downtown, behind the newly complete Wilshire Grand and the U.S. Bank Tower, which both rise 73 stories tall. It would dwarf its neighbor, the Hotel Figueroa, but the project fits in with the rest of South Park, which is seeing plenty of towers.
