One month after protective fencing encircled a parking lot at 1133 S. Hope Street, it appears that construction is finally getting underway for South Park's latest mixed-use tower.

Construction crews are now stripping away asphalt from the .65-acre property, which will birth a 28-story tower featuring 200 condominiums above 5,000 square feet of street-fronting retail space and a parking garage.

Renderings from Chris Dikeakos Architects portray a modern 330-foot tower, similar to Onni Group's 1212 Flower Street project that is now rising one block south.

The project is being developed by Full Star Properties, LLC.  The property was originally entitled by Amacon, a Canadian developer.
