Arquitectonica has revealed new renderings of its proposal for a 53-story tower of cantilevered pools in Downtown Los Angeles. The skyscraper could be built under two different scenarios, where either the building becomes primarily residential units or a hotel and condominiums. The City of Los Angeles Department of City Planning published a draft Environmental Impact Report with further details on the 784-foot tower. Arquitectonica's tower is one of multiple developments underway around Pershing Square. JMF Development owns the Pershing Square building at the tower's site along 5th and Hill streets, and they aim to create the new development on the vacant, L-shaped lot around the historic structure. The formal focus of the project are a series of cantilevered, glass-bottom pools for residents on the building's upper levels. Beginning as balconies, the building protrusions increase in size to become pools toward the top of the tower.
