Renderings of three new residential high rises for DTLA

Sounds like the construction boom in downtown Los Angeles is going to continue awhile. Real estate blogger Brigham Yen posts the renderings of three Historic Core projects planned by downtown developer Barry Shy and designed by David Takacs Architecture. The residential "loft" buildings (with mixed use at street level looks like) total more than 850 units and would be at 6th and Main streets, Broadway at Olympic Boulevard and on Hill Street between 9th and Broadway. Commenters note that the latter Hill Tower Lofts, at 33 stories, would affect views of the Jesus Saves neon sign on the Ace Hotel and the rooftop view from the Ace.
