Centered around the new multi-venue entertainment and retail destination of LA Live, South Park has redefined the fabric and experience of Downtown Los Angeles. At the heart of this neighborhood is the trio of mixed-use residential towers, Elleven, Luma and Evo. Developed by WDD, and partners Gerding/Edlen, these buildings were the first new residential construction built from the ground-up in Downtown Los Angeles in over 20 years and sparked the transformation of South Park and revitalization of downtown. With millions of visitors converging each year to the re-energized LA Live, WDD further enhanced this world class entertainment district with the development of the dual branded Courtyard and Residence Inn by Marriott. Leveraging its prior development experience in Downtown Los Angeles, and its strong relationships with AEG and the City of Los Angeles, Williams & Dame is providing a critically needed hotel in the heart of South Park.
