“I’m so proud of this building,” says Gehry. “From the start, our mission was to create a project on a human scale and respectful of the buildings that surround it. And miraculously, I think we succeeded. We did this in collaboration and partnership with our Related clients, who cared as much as we did about creating great urban space for downtown Los Angeles.

With so many new openings in downtown Los Angeles, the tower brings a new level of luxury living to the area. Each residence has gourmet open kitchens with custom oak-style cabinetry; state-of-the-art appliances; luxurious bathrooms with travertine countertops; wide plank flooring throughout; washers and dryers; and dimmable switches. Interiors, curated by Ingrao Inc., have a warm, neutral color palette with rich materials and plenty of natural light. There are also floor-to-ceiling windows in each apartment.

“We wanted to infuse our designs with a California aesthetic sensibility,” said Tony Ingrao of Ingrao Inc. “We’ve worked extensively with Related, and they’re always pushing the envelope and trying to make it bigger than ever. Are growing.
