A year since we broke the news of Crescent Heights' 70-storey 1045 Olive Street set to rise in downtown LA, and while little has happened on-site, a handful of new renderings offer some additional clues as to the finished product. Designed by ODA, the vegetation-rich 247-metre tower will be a standout figure, its mid-scetion garden terraces, along with its rooftop oasis and ground-level entryway canopy, to bring a bit of greenery to the sun-soaked SoCal metropolis.

Beginning at street level, the base of the tower will contain 12,504 square feet of commercial space, the injection of retail to add a significant degree of pedestrian vibrancy to the South Park neighbourhood. Residents and shoppers will enter through a grand, double-height urban canopy, made green with wood tones and living vegetation.

Moving up, the bulk of the tower will rise from an 8-storey parking podium, which will be partially covered in greenery and a public terrace. By far the most spectacular component to the tower will be the duel, mid-section terraces that will hit the tower at roughly its halfway point.

Clad in the same material as the podium, the multi-storey amenities pavilion will be home to at least one pool and two terraces with ample deck space, while the interior will sport a fully-equipped fitness centre. Slated for completion by 2023, 1045 South Olive Street will be a welcome addition to the city centre, part of LA's slow but steady urban transformation.
