Like some of its Hollywood elite, downtown Los Angeles’ skyline is in a constant state of makeover.
Curbed LA reports TriCal is planning a sleek, 53-story hotel adjacent to the city’s convention center.
When finished, the angled tower will feature 1,024 rooms for an area rejuvenated thanks to the advent of the nearby Staples Center and L.A. Live restaurants and attractions.
The report quotes Ernest Wooden Jr. who is the president and CEO of the Los Angeles Tourism and Convention Board, and Wooden Jr. doesn’t mince words, giving the project glowing praise: “This project is exactly what is needed at this site and in the South Park area.”
This is just one of myriad buildings reaching toward the So Cal sky in the next decade. Curbed LA previously offered a glimpse of what’s to come for the City of Angels and its picturesque setting.

Construction on TriCal’s hotel structure won’t take place for “three to five years.” Until then, it will continue to serve as an apartment complex as it has since 2004.
According to Curbed LA, TriCal’s addition to the scene will be a building that consists of two hotels, restaurant and rooftop bar.
It will fight for attention as Curbed LA notes Lightstone will soon construct a two-tower solution that houses three hotel brands. This is all an effort to meet demand for those who discover downtown Los Angeles is finally a fantastic tourist solution with plenty in the way of bars, restaurants, concert venues and sporting events.
The quickest way to see its effect is taking the 10 on past the area because you will see a skyline that is dramatically different than it was a decade prior.
