The Downtown Los Angeles Neighborhood Council on Tuesday will vote on a motion to approve both the planned 1.27-million-square-foot Angels Landing mixed-use project as well as a proposed 15-story mixed-use development at West 3rd and South Spring Streets, its agenda shows.
Plans for the former project have been underway since 2017, when a joint venture consisting of The Peebles Corporation, MacFarlane Partners, and Claridge Properties was chosen by the city to develop the Angel’s Knoll site just north of the intersection of West 4th and South Hill Streets.
The DTLA Neighborhood Council board will vote Tuesday evening on a motion to approve the $2 billion project on several conditions, such as that its ground-floor retail storefronts are transparent and that a new owner or operator would come back and present to the council’s planning committee should either party for the project change.
The same motion includes approvals for developer Relevant Group‘s plans at 129 W. 3rd St., a vacant parking lot just two blocks east of the Angels Landing project site. Filed earlier this year, plans call for a 195-foot-tall, Gensler-designed mixed-use building with 331 units, 37, or 11 percent, of which would be reserved for very low-income households.
Like with Angels Landing, the neighborhood council board’s approval would come conditional on transparent retail storefronts, as well as a development plan that includes securing an empty area at the project site’s northern edge, among other stipulations.
For Angels Landing, the development team said in February that it expects approvals from the city to come this year. The group is aiming for project completion by the 2028 Summer Olympic Games.
Plans call for two towers, one at 63 stories and the other at 42 stories, holding 180 for-sale condos, 252 apartments, 72,000 square feet of retail and restaurant uses, and two hotels with a combined 515 guest rooms.
The architecture firm for Angels Landing is Handel Architects.
