A half-year after we last stopped by, vertical construction is nearing completion for Hope + Flower, Onni Group's new apartment towers in South Park. 

The project, which is located a block east of Staples Center and L.A. Live, consists of two high-rise structures which will feature 730 residential units above 8,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space and structured parking for 830 vehicles.  The two towers are connected by a shared parking podium and amenity deck, which wraps around an office building that is also owned by Onni.

Chris Dikeakos Architects is designing the project, which features a 41-story, 452-foot-tall building fronting Hope Street and a 33-story, 376-foot-tall building abutting Pico Station on Flower Street.  Both towers will be clad in a mixture of glass, concrete, and metal.

Completion of Hope + Flower is anticipated in 2019.

The project will be the third ground-up development for Onni in the Downtown area, following LEVEL Furnished Living and 825 South Hill.  The developer is also pursuing a 60-story development on Olympic Boulevard, a 15-story building in the Arts District, and two towers adjacent to the former home of the Los Angeles Times.

The Hope + Flower development is joined by a smaller 28-story condo tower now under construction just one block north at 1133 Hope Street.  That project was also designed by Dikeakos.
