One of L.A.’s prime vacant spots located in Bunker Hill is set to be the home of a residential and hotel complex. The $1.6 billion mixed-use high-rise project received city approvals and is now set to become a reality.
According to a new blueprint for the newly designed complex, called the Angels Landing project, it will be a 64-story skyscraper and a 42-story high-rise. The two towers were originally expected to be an 88-story skyscraper and a 24-story high-rise, but those details have since changed due to the lengthy approval process and the COVID-19 pandemic.
The project planning documents state that the development will contain “an integrated mix of residential, hospitality, civic, educational, and commercial uses. Specifically, the Project proposes 180 residential for-sale condominium units, 261 residential apartments (including a mix of market-rate and affordable units)” the statement continues, along with “two hotels with a combined total of 509 guest rooms and ancillary food and beverage spaces, 38,977 square feet of educational/cultural/civic uses, and 36,515 square feet of commercial space.”
While the full details are still underway, the construction of Angels Landing was originally expected to be complete in 2024. However, it has now been released that the new completion date is set for 2028. The two buildings will eventually sit across from Grand Central Market on fourth and Hill street, changing our downtown skyline for good.
The developers claim that they expect more than 8,300 temporary jobs to be created during the construction of the Angel’s Landing project and more than 800 permanent jobs once the buildings are complete.
Their ultimate goal is to complete the project by the 2028 Summer Olympic Games to showcase it to the world.
This isn’t the only change our city will be seeing over the next few years. The Iconic Viper Room is set to be demolished and completely revamped.
