LA gets first office building in 22 years, Vcr first in close to 10

April 4th, 2011 · 24 Comments

As attractive metro downtowns have resortified and the economy slowed, office building was sluggish in many places. But apparently now starting to pick up there … and here.

I note that a new office building — on the site of the University Club, which will have its facade preserved — is going to Development Permit Board today, the first one actually at DP board in a while.

Here’s the description from the agenda.

To construct a 35 storey mixed use office/retail tower on the existing University Club (formerly ‘Quadra Club’) site at 1021 West Hastings Street, this site to be consolidated with the westerly existing Guinness Tower.  The ‘University Club’ facade to be retained with retail spaces constructed on the ground floor.  New construction will integrate the parking and services of the existing Guinness parking with the structures below grade.
