Downtown Los Angeles South Park Car Wash to be 60 Story Mixed Use Tower
We’ve been hearing rumors for a very long time, and now that plans have been filed with the City of Los Angeles, we’re seeing the first illustrations of the planned 60 story mixed use monster. It’s to be built on the old car wash site across from LA Live and will include hotel, residential condos, office, retail and restaurants.
Although the building looks so thin that a good wind could blow it over, it will house 374 residential units, 373 hotel rooms, 33,000 square feet of office space and more than 65,000 square feet of downtown Los Angeles retail and restaurant space. Could there be a floor for some Los Angeles coworking space? Once again, making Los Angeles commercial real estate agents very happy to have new inventory available.
Car wash owner, Robert Bush, sold for $25 million in 2014 to developer Ben Neman who was the buyer and is the developer. Car wash owner paid $515,000 for the site back in the 80s.
Plans were just filed with the City of Los Angeles by architectural firm Nardi Associates. Illustrations show how this is going to look. Nardi describes it as a giant urban tree with its diagonal grid like design complete with open air atrium, LED signs and live plantings.
Preliminary lease up will begin as soon as they get final approval so if you’re interested in the retail or restaurant space, feel free to give me a call, Scott Harris Realtor, 310-473-4789.
