Is Daniel Libeskind’s Los Angeles Tower No More?

With the American Institute of Architects‘ Architecture Billings Index still sinking into the red, if you thought the era of starchitects seeing their buildings getting canceled well before any ground had been broken, think again. The good folks at Curbed LA are reporting that the land underneath a planned Daniel Libeskind-designed tower near Los Angeles’ convention center has just appeared in this commercial real estate listing. While said listing makes mention that one could “Utilize this lot to build based on existing plans for a 43 story luxury high-rise mixed-use condominium,” with “plans [and] renderings have been completed by world famous architect Daniel Libeskind” at the ready for a buyer to take a crack at, it also mentions another option: “or collect current steady revenue from the event parking lot until commencement of development.” Curbed believes it’s time to “get out your coffin nails” as it’s never a good sign when a former developer is suddenly selling off the plot of land they were once eager to start building a tower designed by a “world famous architect” on.
