Two Seven-Story Apartment Towers Planned Near Herald Examiner Building

Two Seven-Story Apartment Towers Planned Near Herald Examiner Building

South Park stands as Downtown’s hottest neighborhood for new residential projects, and the trend continues with plans for two apartment complexes from developer Forest City.

The intersection of Eleventh and Hill streets would see the construction of a seven-story residential building adjacent to the rear of the Herald Examiner building. The complex at 156 W. Eleventh St. would feature 177 studio to two-bedroom apartments and would have 7,300 square feet of retail/commercial space on the ground floor, according to plans filed with the city.

Amenities in the project, which will be presented to the board of the Downtown Los Angeles Neighborhood Council on Wednesday night, would include a pool deck, courtyard and gym. The project would also offer 276 parking spaces (with two levels of underground and two levels of above-grade parking) and 201 bicycle parking spaces.
