Los Angeles developer Palisades is adding some star power to a renovation project that’s garnered local pushback, reports Architect’s Newspaper.

The derelict site of the project, currently known as the Metropolitan Water District campus, is on Sunset Boulevard and, originally designed by California architect William Pereira, prompted a campaign for landmarking, according to Curbed.

Palisades’ plan is to use a portion of the site to create a 778-unit pair of towers that will host retail and public space, as well as a boutique hotel — the complex is called 1111 Sunset Boulevard. The “re-imagining” will be led by a star-studded group of architects including Kengo Kuma and Associates, Natoma Architects, SOM and James Corner of Field Operations.

Here’s a look at the 5.5-acre project’s new renderings:
