Drone shots by architectural photographer Hunter Kerhart offer a new perspective on the $150-million development now taking shape next to Expo/Sepulveda Station in West Los Angeles.

Carmel Partners is behind the four-acre project, which replaces a former cement plant that was ironically used for the construction of the Expo Line.  A full buildout of the development would create multiple nine-story structures lining Pico and Sepulveda Boulevard, as well as a 13-story tower at the east side of the property.  Plans call for 595 apartments and approximately 15,000 square feet of ground-floor retail.

VTBS Architects is designing the project, which elevation plans show as a series of contemporary mid-rise buildings.  Rodrigo Vargas Design is handling the project's interior design work.

Last year, the Wilshire Grand claimed the title of the West Coast's tallest building, with a slender spire that peaks 1,100 feet above Downtown Los Angeles.  But a newly proposed tower just up the street seems to be gunning for its crown at the highest tower west of the Mississippi River.

Last week, Chinese developer Shenzhen New World Group filed plans with the City of Los Angeles to redevelop the 1980s L.A. Grand Hotel Downtown at 333 S.
