New project proposals are cropping up in the Los Angeles area and will be in the pipeline over the next few years. One example is Angels Landing, in downtown Los Angeles. Over the next 5-10 years it is hoped that the area will house Western America’s tallest building, as well as two new hotels, apartments and condos and a charter elementary school.
For 2018, there are other projects that should start (and even be completed). These include:
At Mateo (designed by Edge Architecture in partnership with the County of L.A.) building brick and glass structures with 50,000 square feet of office space, 130,000 square feet of retail and restaurants, and a 540-space parking structure for tenants and customers. The La Plaza Cultura Village which will comprise arts and historical spaces providing an educative endeavor on the city for visitors.
And as pointed out by Mary Holland in a recent article, the growth of DTLA (downtown Los Angeles) that began in the late 1990s has really started to gather pace, transitioning a few years ago “from bleak badlands to vibrant cultural mecca.”
