Four prestigious developers are now vying for the rights to build a skyscraper on the site of the abandoned Angels Knoll Park in Downtown Los Angeles.

The city selected them to redevelop the site — now called “Angels Landing” — from a previous pool of 10 applicants. The site was transferred to the city after its previous owner the Community Redevelopment Agency shuttered in 2014, the Los Angeles Downtown News reported.

Lowe Enterprises, developer of the Garey Building in the Arts Distric — paired with architecture firm Gensler — is one of the finalists to make the cut.

Canadian developer Onni Group — prolific in DTLA as of late, and currently working on the development of Times Mirror Square — also made the list, paired with San Francisco’s Natoma Architects.

The third team constitutes Peebles Corporation, MacFarlane Group and Claridge Properties along with Handel Architects. Macfarlane recently broken ground on phase two of its luxe Park Fifth project.

Trammell Crow Company, which developed the County of Los Angeles Department of Mental Health office building on Sixth and Vermont, and Beijing’s MAD Architects are the fourth duo.

The Angels Landing project will likely feature a mixed-use skyscraper with an office, residential and hotel component, the News reported. [LADTN] — Naiwen Tian
