Plans published by the city planning department shows that the tower would rise at the southeast corner of Olympic Blvd. and Hill St., replacing a parking lot next to the Mayan Theater. It would include 700 apartments and 15,000 sq. ft. of commercial space on the ground floor. A seven-level underground parking garage would hold 1,075 spaces.
The 760-feet tall tower is being designed by Vancouver, B.C.-based Chris Dikeakos Architects. It would have a glassy exterior, with long balconies jutting out from the sides. A fifth-floor amenity deck would get a swimming pool, spa, and basketball court. A rooftop terrace and a landscaped courtyard space would provide additional outdoor space for residents.
Per preliminary estimate, construction would take about 30 months to complete, with work finishing up in 2022.
