The sleek, glassy towers will have amenities including multiple swimming pools, an outdoor fitness area and a dog run. There will be 7,873 sq. ft. of ground-floor commercial space.

38-Story Condo Tower With Lots of Parking for Downtown
After five years, the Los Angeles City Planning Commission has approved developer Barry Shy’s plans to build a 38-story condominium tower with six levels of podium parking in L.A.’s historic core at Sixth and Main streets, Curbed L.A. reported. Including 467 condos, 21,500 sq. ft. for ground-level retail and 860 parking spaces, the design for SB Omega by architect David Takacs features foliage atop the podium, balconies with perforated metal screens and vertical landscaping. Nearby residents would also use the parking, which was applauded by both city leaders and residents. If ultimately approved, SB Omega will replace Joe’s Auto Parks.
