Today, Holland Partner Group will hold an official groundbreaking ceremony for its latest mixed-use development in Downtown Los Angeles.

Located at the corner of 9th and Figueroa Streets in South Park, the project consists of a 28-story, LEED-Silver tower which will feature 341 apartments and approximately 11,600 square feet of ground-floor retail space.  Plans also call for a rooftop amenity deck, a three-level underground garage and a small park.

The 312-foot tall building, designed by architecture firms Gensler and the Preston Partnership, is the long-delayed follow-up to Apex, an adjacent high-rise apartment tower completed in 2012.  Renderings portray a glass and steel structure featuring a prominent 6,500-square-foot LED sign.

Scheduled for completion in 2018, the project follows a handful of other Downtown developments from Holland Partner Group, including podium-style apartment buildings in Little Tokyo and City West, and two high-rise towers on Spring Street.
