The Park Fifth project will be the first address of an emerging residential community in the symbolic center of downtown Los Angeles, Pershing Square. Building on such a prominent site requires that this new development engage the civic realm in addition to providing the privacy and comfort necessary for a residential enclave. The design philosophy guiding this project is that urban and suburban residential typologies can be merged in one building design. The objective is to attract middle-class Angelenos to move back to the city center by offering some of the very advantages which drew them to live in single-family houses in the first place. In addition, the project involves repairing and restoring a missing section of the historic street wall fabric of the city’s core.
