The urban infill project is located on an entire city block between the burgeoning Little Tokyo and Artist districts in downtown Los Angeles. Five stories in height, the unit mix includes one, two, and three bedroom flat units as well as two-story lofts. The units are configured to form three courtyards containing areas for lounging, swimming, and other recreational activities.
Guests enter via a motor court with optional parking provided in two subterranean levels. Interior amenities include a movie theater, full sports lounge, exercise room, library, and a business center and conference room available for tenant use. A roof terrace is included that affords magnificent views of the downtown skyline and is set up for group entertaining as well as enjoyment by the individual tenant.
The architectural character is inspired by an urban context of commercial, public, multifamily and institutional buildings combining multinational influences that gave the neighborhood its roots. Material selections and building rhythm and massing are direct products of extensive studies of the neighborhood.
