The website of SPF Architects has revealed a new look for WE3, the proposed third building at the Water's Edge office complex in Playa Vista.

The $70-million project, which is slated for a vacant lot near the intersection of Lincoln and Jefferson Boulevards, would consist of a six-story structure featuring approximately 128,000 square feet of creative office space.

Renderings portray a contemporary design with punched windows and a translucent metal canopy.  The new building would be linked the the existing Water's Edge complex through a shared amenity center.

A timeline for the project is currently unclear, though the developers are in the process of obtaining permits, and the SPF website points to 2017.
