Some of the biggest general contracting and architecture firms made the city’s shortlist of three development teams vying to build the $700 million office tower to replace downtown’s Parker Center.

The L.A. Bureau of Engineering released its recommended list for the Los Angeles Street Civic Building Project, according to Urbanize. The teams include giants like Clark Construction and Webcor Construction, and designers that include Skidmore, Owings & Merrill and Renzo Piano Building Workshop.

Whichever team the city ultimately awards the contract will be expected to develop a roughly 750,000-square-foot tower for 3,200 city employees.

The teams are:

*DTLA Civic Partners, LLC, consisting of equity members Meridiam and Edgemoor Infrastructure & Real Estate; lead contractor Clark Construction; lead designer Skidmore, Owings & Merrill; and operations manager ENGIE Services Inc.

*LAC 3 Partners, consisting of equity members Macquarie Financial Holdings and JLC Infrastructure; lead contractor Hensel Phelps Construction; lead designer Morphosis; and operations and management provider Honeywell International.

*Plenary Collaborative Los Angeles, consisting of equity member Plenary Group; lead contractor Webcor Construction; lead designers Smith Group and Renzo Piano Building Workshop; and operations and management provider Johnson Controls.

The city also wants the new building, expected to rise roughly 27 stories, to have up to 65,000 square feet of ground floor retail and parking for 1,200 vehicles. The new building will house offices of several city agencies.

The city first issued a Request for Qualifications for the Parker Center redevelopment in April. The 1955 Parker Center, former home of the L.A. Police Department, was demolished earlier this year following several unsuccessful efforts to halt its redevelopment.

The short-listing can be appealed until Sept. 13. [Urbanize] — Dennis Lynch
