A new rendering from Canadian architect Chris Dikeakos Architects provides an updated look at 820 Olive Street, a 49-story tower now rising in Downtown Los Angeles.

The updated image portrays a more refined look for the development in comparison to renderings first presented to the Downtown Los Angeles Neighborhood Council in 2014.  Although still similar in terms of massing, the redesign has discarded a glass curtain wall for a facade more simlar to the modern towers of Vancouver.

The project, which is being developed by Onni Group, will feature 516 residential units above 4,500 square feet of ground-floor commercial space.  At 637 feet in height, the building will become the tallest residential tower in Los Angeles at the time of its completion.

It is one of several Onni projects throughout Downtown Los Angeles, including two towers now rising at 1212 Flower Street and the potential redevelopment of the Times Mirror Square complex.
