Three finalists have been chosen to redevelop the city-owned property next to Angels Flight – and their high-rise plans couldn’t be more different.

The finalists are: Lowe Enterprises with Gensler; Onni and Natoma Architects; and MacFarlane Partners, The Peebles Corporation, Claridge Properties and Handel Architects.

Each developer/architect team hopes to transform the city-owned property next to Angels Flight, extending from Hill and Fourth streets up to Olive. Officials called for a mixed-use development that would incorporate the Angels Flight funicular and the Pershing Square Metro.

Developer Lowe Enterprise, paired with Cisneros Miramontes, Gensler and RELM Studios, proposed a vertical campus for UCLA on the site. The tower would hold 600,000 square feet for classroom and office space, 655 housing units for faculty and students, 200,000 square feet of public programming space and nearly one acre of private open space. Although the school is not allowed to publicly endorse it, UCLA is likely to sign on to project, according to Lowe.

Prominent Downtown developer Onni and Natoma Architects set forward their plans to build two high-rise towers (400 and 800 feet tall) that would include 230 hotel rooms, 120 condos, 650 apartments, an elementary school, a museum and grocery store. A public square with a food court and retail would shape up over the Pershing Square station.

Claridge Properties, MacFarlane Partners,The Peebles Corporation and Handel Architects are also proposing a two-tower project — 24 and 88 stories each — containing 405 apartments, 240 condos, 500 SLS and Mondrian hotel rooms, an elementary school and 50,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space. An Olin-designed “Angels Terrace” would include a 25,000-square-foot plaza at the center.

The winning proposal will be selected in November. [Curbed] – Natalie Hoberman
