Gensler designed this 54-story tower as the visual anchor for the larger six-block sports and entertainment district known as L.A. LIVE. Comprising two distinct hotel brands, an 878-key JW Marriott hotel and a 123-key Ritz-Carlton boutique hotel, the tower's top 25 floors house Ritz-branded condominium residences. Located adjacent the STAPLES Center, the vertical icon contributes to the dynamism and sophistication of this revitalized commercial district. The sustainably designed tower earned LEED® Silver certification.
