One Beverly Hills by Foster + Partners
July 24, 2020 - Beverly Hills
A newly unveiled $2 billion development proposal crafted by Foster + Partners, Gensler, and RIOS for developers Alagem Capital Group aims to bring a pair of verdant, balcony-wrapped towers to Beverly Hills.
The project would be situated behind the Waldorf Astoria and Beverly Hilton Hotel sites and would bound the Los Angeles Country Club.
In all, the development could render 303 units in addition to an adjacent hotel containing 42 suites and 37 condominiums.
The lower levels of the complex would include a retail podium filled with restaurants and shops, The Los Angeles Times reports.
Gensler is serving as Executive Architect for the development, while RIOS will provide landscape architecture services for.
The ground level areas will be designed as lush landscapes and will be, according to reports, largely publicly accessible.
The project is slated to span over Merv Griffin Drive, a public street that bisects the project site, with a "landscaped platform, allowing the botanical gardens to stretch across the site."
The team behind the project hope to begin construction by late 2021 and complete the project by 2024.
