UPDATE*: XTEN Designs New Boutique Hotel for South Park in Downtown LA

Los Angeles-based firm XTEN Architecture has revealed its plans for a new hotel in the revitalized Downtown Los Angeles neighborhood of South Park (the new hotel will be built blocks away from LA Live and next to the Luma tower). XTEN conceived the overall structure as a concrete monolith, with numerous, expansive portals to provide visual access to the cityscape and landscaping. The 65,000-square-foot hotel will include two subterranean bars, a restaurant, and a rooftop terrace with the obligatory infinity edge pool. A post on ArchDaily was the first to share the news.
As detailed by the LA Times, the site was once promised for a neighborhood-serving pocket park, but a consortium of local developers bought the property and announced their intentions to transform the property into a boutique hotel back in February of 2012 (the original building is a three-story building completed in 1909 that at one point had a dozen liens and competing parties claiming to hold the title). Back when they bought the property in February, the developers claimed that they would spend $25 million rehabbing the site.
