DTLA High-rise Alloy Glass Exterior Taking Shape

Hunter Kerhart Architectural Photography

The glass façade of Downtown LA Arts District's first high-rise is visibly taking form at 520 S. Mateo Street. Developed by San Francisco-based Carmel Partners, Alloy is being built on a site bordered by the 4th Street Bridge to the north, Santa Fe Avenue to the east, and Mateo Street to the west.

The ensemble of mid-rise and high-rise structures is set to comprise 475 live/work apartments, 105,000 square feet of office space, around 18,000 square feet of street-level retail and dining establishments, along with parking for 650 vehicles.

Designed by Works Progress Architecture and Solomon Cordwell Buenz, the project looks to be staying true to the modern glass tower depicted in conceptual illustrations. The structure incorporates a series of terrace spaces intended for amenity decks and will repurpose an abandoned rail spur between Mateo and Santa Fe into a pedestrian paseo.

At the core of Alloy is a 35-story tower, standing at a height of 390 feet, claiming the title of the tallest building in the Arts District. This high-rise connects to a smaller mid-rise office building to the west through a shared podium, fronting Mateo Street.
