grand ave plans revealed

la downtown news reveals the grand ave committee's plans for that area. it seems the developers, Related Companies (same developers behind the time warner center in ny), are intent on ignoring eric owen moss' advice in last week's issue. the plan is clearly trying to emulate the density of new york. the redevelopment project will occur in several phases, the first is expected to start next summer. the first phase is expected to include:

  • Three residential towers with a total of 1,000 units.
  • A three-block civic park stretching from the Music Center to City Hall.
  • A 600,000-square-foot office tower at First and Hill streets.
  • A 300,000-square-foot retail development.
  • A 275-room boutique hotel.
  • About 4,000 parking spaces.
