Metropolis Mixed-use Development*

Los Angeles, California

Gruen Associates was the Master Executive Architect and original Master Planner for Metropolis—with Arquitectonica as Design Architect. The project was designed to sit on a six-acre site on the western edge of the Central Business District in downtown Los Angeles to be comprised of two 33-story residential condominiums, a 30-story hotel and a 45-story office building. The fast-track project would have capitalized on Gruen’s expertise in downtown Los Angeles, high-rise and Design-Build projects. The original project was on-hold due to funding, but eventually was redesigned and completed by another design team.
