Tallest Building in Western US to be Built 100% by Minority Group’s $1.2B Development – Details Here!

Angels Landing Partners LLC, a 100% minority-owned team comprised of the Peebles Corporation, MacFarlane Partners and Claridge Properties, has been selected by the City Council of the City of Los Angeles, California to manage development of the coveted Angels Landing Site, and will build the tallest building in the Western US as part of the plan.

“Our team is inspired by the great opportunity to transform the Los Angeles skyline with our iconic building, enhance residential life downtown, and forever change how large buildings are built in Los Angeles by ensuring that all residents and businesses receive equal access to career and business opportunities. We look forward to working with the City of Los Angeles and their team, Council member Jose Huizar and the Chief Legislative Analyst, Oscar Ixco,” said Don Peebles, Chairman and CEO of the Peebles Corporation.

Following a unanimous approval from the City of Los Angeles Economic Development Committee, the full City Council approved the approach by the team to develop the 2.24-acre site at Fourth and Hill Streets. The estimated budget, including acquisition, is $1.2 billion with a construction phase expected to run for 41 months with completion due in late 2024.

“We join our partners in thanking the City of Los Angeles for their support of our team and our plan,” said Victor MacFarlane, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of MacFarlane Partners. “Having invested in properties in downtown Los Angeles for the past 15 years, we are firm believers in DTLA and enjoy a valuable working relationship with Councilmember Jose Huizar. Angels Landing gives us an exciting opportunity to broaden the transformational work we are doing nearby in developing the Park Fifth residential project and supporting the Pershing Square Renew effort.”

Ricardo Pagan of Claridge Properties commented on the award, “We are honored and thank the city of Los Angeles, council member Jose Huizar, the CLAs office and the selection committee for supporting and entrusting us with the future of Angels Landing. We will remain committed to bringing forward a world class asset to the city and provide opportunity and growth for Angelenos. Today’s vote marks an important day in the future growth of this city, our team is grateful for being a big part of it.”

The winning plan aims to increase pedestrian flow and activity, engage the public, and activate the site and surrounding neighborhood. The proposed transit-oriented development will provide a better experience for Pershing Square Metro Station commuters as well as pedestrians by increasing accessibility to the site—currently, one of the major issues affecting the difficult hill-like structure. In addition to building two towers, one of which will be the tallest residential building in the Western US standing at 1,000 feet, the master plan for the mixed-used development will deliver approximately:

· Two Hotels operated by SBE (192-key SLS hotel; 289-key Mondrian hotel)
· 425 apartments, including affordable housing units
· 250 condominiums
· Nearly 45,000 SF of restaurant and retail space
· An elementary charter school serving K through Grade 5
· +50,000 SF of publicly accessible open space, including a 25,000 SF central outdoor gathering space for year-round events called “Angels Terrace”
· A mini food hall which will incorporate local businesses
