The Vision Behind The Building
Thoughtfully designed by a thoughtful man. Douglas Hanson has brought 25 years of experience working in cities all over the world. Inspired by more than just buildings, Douglas realizes the effect that arts have on the neighborhoods that make up Downtown LA. His LA-centric firm and work, which can be found all over the city, gave him a unique perspective when he took on the project that is now called TEN50.
“TEN50 will fill in a gap and provide both an urban and pedestrian link to the developing South Park neighborhood. We have taken what was once a parking lot and made a new urban place, contributing positively to the neighborhood. We have designed a tower on a relatively small urban site and the energy of the neighborhood is acknowledged in the design. A thoughtful randomness to a few key elements against a well-organized backdrop of punched windows and a lightly patterned façade provides the proper scale and energy to this very urban site in Downtown Los Angeles,” said Hanson.
