UPDATED, Tuesday, May 22, 2018, 10:20 a.m.: Los Angeles developer Palisades is moving ahead on its mixed-use 1111 Sunset project.

The latest study on the sprawling development, published earlier this month by the Los Angeles Department of City Planning, calls for up to 778 residential units with 98 hotel rooms, 48,000 square feet of offices, 95,000 square feet of commercial uses, and 1,631 parking spaces in a seven-level, partially subterranean garage, Urbanize reported.

Since its announcement in 2016, the development, which is set to rise on the former Metropolitan Water District site on Sunset Boulevard near Chinatown, has drawn fire from local preservationists, who pushed back against Palisades’ plan to demolish the William Pereira-designed MWD buildings. The buildings failed to receive landmark status, and they will be demolished.

The project will feature a couple of high-rise buildings with residential units, as well as 26 low-rise buildings with up to eight units each. Three low-rise commercial buildings, designed to resemble the former MWD style, will have space for offices and retail stores.

The crew of architects designing the mixed-use site, which will include a nod to Pereira, include Kengo Kuma and Associates, Natoma Architects, SOM and James Corner of Field Operations.

Palisades has been keeping busy in other parts of the county as well. The firm is also working on the 19-unit AIRE condos in Santa Monica, the 56-unit Liddel at 10777 Wilshire Boulevard and a mixed-use structure at 631 Wilshire Boulevard. [Urbanize] — Natalie Hoberman

Correction: An earlier version of this article incorrectly stated Palisades won’t be demolishing the existing buildings.
