As anticipated, demolition has begun on a parking structure east of the Walt Disney Concert Hall to prepare the site for construction of a major mixed-use development designed by Frank Gehry.

Photos taken this morning of the Bunker Hill property by photographer Sterling Davis show that a good chunk of the structure has already come down, but there’s much more to go.

The $1 billion project, dubbed The Grand, will include a 20-story hotel, retail and entertainment, and a 39-story residential tower with 128 condos, 214 market-rate apartments, and 86 affordable housing units.

The Grand is developed by Related Companies and the China-based CORE US, a partnership between China Harbour Engineering Company and CCCG Overseas Real Estate.

Related has said it expects to wrap up construction in 2021.

The Grand is part of the Grand Avenue Project, a multi-parcel project that also includes the Emerson apartment tower and Grand Park.
