Challenged to create a world-class, urban development that reflects the pulse of Los Angeles’ emerging downtown, CallisonRTKL designed Figueroa Centre as a mixed-use development that blends over 90,000 SF of retail and food & beverage space, 22,000 SF of event space, over 40,000 SF of open space, with a 220-key 5-star hotel and 200 branded premium residential units into an artfully stacked vertical environment.
A new thread in the city’s urban fabric, Figueroa Centre promotes the city’s goals of increasing hotel room supply to support the Convention Center. Five floors of retail, food and beverage and conference facilities act as the project’s face on Figueroa Street, creating an active front door and streetscape. Upon completion, Figueroa Centre will feature the tallest residential tower in downtown Los Angeles. The units are located in a separate stack with dedicated elevators opening directly into each residence.
