This week, we joined Related Companies and its partner CORE USA, government officials (including Mayor Garcetti and Supervisor Solis), Eli Broad, Frank Gehry and many other Downtown community leaders to celebrate the start of construction on The Grand. This is a visionary mixed-used development that is located at the epicenter of The Broad, Walt Disney Concert Hall, The Colburn School of Music and MOCA. It will become a dynamic part of the neighborhood and will bring new residences, shops, restaurants, entertainment, open space and an Equinox Hotel. The residential tower will rise 39 stories high with more than 400 residences with 20% as affordable rate units. It was designed by renowned architect Frank Gehry and will promote community gatherings and cultural performances. The Grand is expected to be completed in 2021.
