The website of real estate firm Kilroy Realty has revealed updated renderings for the Academy, a proposed $300-million mixed-use in Hollywood.

The project - slated for a city block bounded by Vine Street, Homewood, Ivar and De Longepre Avenues - would construct a series of high-rise and low-rise buildings featuring 250 apartments, 235,000 square feet of office space and 37,000 square feet of ground-floor shops and restaurants.

Architectural plans from the Shimoda Design Group call for a gateway entrance on Vine Street, leading to a pedestrian paseo cutting east-to-west through the 3.5-acre property.  The project would be highlighted by a 23-story high-rise tower at the northwest corner of the site.

According to city records, the Academy could begin construction in the third quarter of 2016.
