The first Throwback Thursday of 2018 focuses on one of the tallest buildings now under construction in Los Angeles: Onni Group's 825 South Hill.

The Canadian development firm is building a 50-story tower parking lot on a mid-block property at 825 S. Hill Street, consisting of 516 rental apartments atop 5,000 square feet of ground-floor commercial space.

Completion is anticipated in 2019.
