MATT Construction built Wood Partners’ new mixed use project at 8th & Hope in the southwestern quarter of downtown LA. The project replaced a former parking lot with a 22-story tower featuring 290 one- and two-bedroom apartments, six floors of parking, 5,000 sf of retail space at street level and a helipad. The building’s structural system utilizes reinforced concrete with post-tensioned decks.

The design called for an all-glass fa├žade with floor-to-ceiling windows, giving the apartments spectacular views. There is an elevated 10,000 sf pool deck, a spa, a fountain, a fire pit and a garden retreat. Additionally, the rooftop deck overlooks the Staples Center and LA Live. The ground floor houses a fitness center and 5,000 sf of retail space.
