A new set of conceptual renderings offer a first glimpse of Onni Group's latest tower proposal in South Park.

Last month, the Vancouver-based real estate firm filed plans with the City of Los Angeles to construct a 48-story building at the southeast corner of Olympic Boulevard and Hill Street.  According to a case filing with the Planning Department, the project would include 498 residential units above 8,700 square feet of ground-floor retail space and a 711-car garage.

Renderings of the proposed tower, which was designed by the Canadian architect Chris Dikeakos, portray a contemporary design, similar to other recent Onni developments such as 1212 Flower and 820 Olive.  The tower would rise as a boxy structure above a parking podium wrapped with residential units.  A sculpted rooftop element would push the building to a nearly 647-foot apex.

The proposed tower at 1000 S. Hill Street is part of a second wave of Los Angeles area projects from Onni, which is also planning buildings in Hollywood and at the Times Mirror Square complex.

The Canadian firm has already completed a 33-story tower on Olive Street.

City Looks to Update Land Use and Transportation Along Rail-to-River Corridor

A freight railway that cuts through South L.A. is set for rebirth as an active transportion corridor.

In 2012, Metro began exploring the possibility of transforming a segment of a former freight rail right-of-way that cuts through the heart of South Los Angeles into an active transportation project.  The project, now known as the Rail-to-River corridor, would convert the Harbor Subdivision - which runs east-to-west along Florence and Slauson Avenues - for use by pedestrians and cyclists.

To capitalize on this investment, the Cit
