Arquitectonica designs a "swimming pool" in Los Angeles
Arcticonica, an office in Miami, has unveiled new images of its 53-story tower in downtown Los Angeles. The building can be used for two different purposes: a residential floor or a hotel. The City of Los Angeles and the Urban Planning Department have published a report on the environmental impact of the 240-meter tower with balanced swimming pools. The Tower, designed by Arquitectonica, is one of the many projects developed around Percy Square.
JMF Development owns the Pershing Square building and the plot located on the Street Hill and intends to build the tower around the historic structure. The project is based on a series of balanced pools and bottom of the glass. Beginning like balconies, extrusions become more prominent until the size of the pools is balanced.
Of the two options of the program, the first will include accommodation in two, three or four bedrooms in a hotel with 190 rooms, guest maintenance programs and parking for 126 cars. In the second option, the building will include one-, two-, three- or four-bedroom apartments and other services, as well as shopping areas on the ground floor, as well as parking for 187 cars.
The redesign of the Pershing Square building begins in 2020. Meanwhile the tower has no fixed date.
