The Medallion
Los Angeles, California

The Medallion, comprising a full block of downtown Los Angeles, consists of 192 residential lofts, 203,000sf of retail space and parking for 700 cars. Located at the juncture of retail, governmental and emerging residential uses, The Medallion will serve as a lynchpin in the evolution of Los Angeles’ downtown. It will also serve as a transitional element between the city’s Historic Core to the south and the new Civic structures emerging to the north. It is designed to integrate into the existing street and traffic patterns of the city and provide a one acre urban park to serve the residents, merchants and adjoining properties. The corner of 4th and Main will act as a beacon locating The Medallion within the urban landscape.

A retail floor that continues the existing street grid into the development at Los Angeles Street is located below the entire development. Atop the retail level is a podium at the Main Street level that serves as the base for the residential towers and structured parking. The podium also provides a landscaped open space where the retail and residential tenants come together with the city. Recreational amenities are located on the roof parking to enhance the residential environment.
