The updated website of real estate firm Mitsui Fudosan America has published renderings for Eighth & Figueroa, a proposed residential-retail tower in Downtown Los Angeles.

The new images, unearthed by the blog LAOCDB, portray the high-rise development as a boxy glass tower protruding from a four-level podium.  The 43-story building, named for its location at 8th and Figueroa Streets, would feature 436 residential units, an outdoor amenity deck, 11,000 square feet of street-fronting commercial space, and parking accommodations for 460 vehicles and 400 bicycles.

MFA has counted the one-acre property at 732 S. Figueroa Street amongst its real estate portfolio for nearly three decades, and previously attempted to develop it into a high-rise hotel during the early 1990s.

The company controls an additional property on 8th Street between Hope Street and Grand Avenue, which is also slated for a residential tower.

Eastview, as the property at 327-411 Boylston Avenue is known, consists of a seven-story building featuring 121 one- and two-bedroom apartments above parking for 145 vehicles.  Plans call for 14 of the residential units to be set aside as affordable housing.
