Los Angeles, California
AC Martin/Martin Project Management
The new Wilshire Grand is a mixed-use, 74 story tower, in downtown Los Angeles. The development designed by AC Martin for Hanjin International and Martin Project Management, includes 300,000GSF of office space, a 900 room hotel and podium meeting and amenity spaces. The design includes a hotel Sky Lobby registration on Level 70.
The vertical transportation strategy economized the core space by using double deck elevators for the office zone and to transfer hotel guests to the Sky Lobby level. The hotel zone will be served by two groups of top/down hotel locals. Destination dispatching will be provided on the office, hotel express, hotel local and hotel back-of-house service elevators.
FS² was commission for the design development through construction oversight.
