An internet sleuth from Skyscraperpage has uncovered a sleek new look for Olive & 8th, a new apartment tower currently under construction in the burgeoning South Park neighborhood of Downtown Los Angeles.

A time lapse video created by the JT Wimsatt Contracting Company features multiple renderings of a taller, slimmer design for the project, crafted by Chicago-based Solmon Cordwell Buenz Architecture.  According to documents filed with the Department of City Planning, the retooled plan calls for a 33-story tower which would rise to an architectural peak of 352 feet above ground level.  This represents a slight increase from an earlier design for the project by Los Angeles-based GMP Architects, which had planned for a more stout 27-story structure.

The tower, which is being developed by real estate firm Carmel Partners, will feature 363 apartments and 10,000 square feet of commercial floor area when completed in 2017.  It is San Franciso-based Carmel's second project in South Park, following the massive 8th & Grand complex which will offer 700 residential units and a ground-floor Whole Foods Market.
