The tower stands as beacon at the outer fringe of downtown Los Angeles. Its architecture recalls the simple concrete industrial frame buildings that are still abundant in east LA. The massing is left as transparent as possible, with balconies, sunshades, infill panels expressed in a gritty language reminiscent of the areas’ manufacturing past.
