For this sinuous tower designed by world-renowned Chicago-based architect Jeanne Gang, Creative Space brokered the land acquisition and is operating as Paris-based investor Compagnie de Phalsbourg's local development partner on this project. This two-tower ground-up project features 256 condo units, 119 hotel keys, a 300-car fully-automated garage, and ten thousand square-feet of ground-floor retail. It is the first project in Los Angeles for Gang; Creative Space was instrumental in facilitating and streamlining interactions between the firm, the consultant team spread throughout the US and the project's Paris-based investor to produce a project hailed by the Architect's Newspaper as one that represents the changing tenor of development in the city's urban core.
Looking toward an anticipated completion date in late 2024, our goal is to continue to work closely with our partners, including Paris-based Compagnie de Phalsbourg and hotel operator MOB Hotel, on weaving together the existing streetscape and fast-developing Chinatown area with the site's lushly landscaped plazas, generous open space, and pedestrian throughways. The tower itself is classic Studio Gang, featuring a novel approach to the skyscraper form in its emphasis on striated vertical elements that combine with glossy horizontal ribbons to create a visually articulated and programmatically novel residential and hotel project. Sensitively-landscaped exterior features designed by Los Angeles-based Elysian Landscapes will bring a gentle liveliness to the project.
