The Project would include up to 1,129,284 square feet (sf) of floor area (approximately 9.7:1 floor area ratio [FAR]) in three towers atop an eight level podium (Podium) with up to four subterranean levels and four levels above grade. The Project would include a total of up to 300 hotel rooms, 650 residential condominium units, and 80,000 sf of restaurant, retail, and other commercial uses at the first two levels along all street frontages.

 

Phase I of the Project would include the construction of the 34-story Hotel Tower located on the corner of 11th Street and S. Figueroa Street and the construction of the 32-story Residential Tower 1 that would include up to 290 residential units and would be located at the corner of 11th Street and S. Flower Street. During Phase 2, the 38-story Residential Tower 2 would be constructed that would include up to 360 residential units and would be located at the corner of S. Figueroa Street and W. Olympic Boulevard. Of these 360 units, approximately 14 live-work loft units would be developed in the Podium on levels three and four.
