Shenzhen New World Group and Dimarzio | Kato Architecture hope to build a 77-story, 1,100-ft.-tall mixed-use tower at 333 South Figueroa Street in Los Angeles that would strip the Wilshire Grand (ELEVATOR WORLD, September 2017) of its “tallest building west of the Mississippi” title, The Architect’s Newspaper reported. The glass-and-steel structure would take shape on the northeastern corner of a site that houses a 13-story, 1980s-era hotel, which would be converted into apartments. Envisioned are nearly 600 hotel rooms, 242 condominiums, 28,705 sq. ft. of commercial space and parking for 552 vehicles. Should it be built, the tower would become the fourth in the city to rise above 1,000 ft, joining the 1,100-ft.-tall Wilshire Grand, 1,018-ft.-tall U.S. Bank tower and 1,020-ft.-tall Angels Landing development by Handel Architects (EW, August 2018).
