AVEN occupies the entire south end of a city block in the South Park district of Downtown Los Angeles, leaving space for an urban park and enabling pedestrian access across the block via a public outdoor space.
Civil engineering for the project included storm water mitigation design in compliance with the City of Los Angeles Low Impact Development (LID) ordinance, grading, drainage, utility connections, and enhanced streetscape improvements within the public right-of-way surrounding the project site.
A unique feature of this project is its expansive amenity deck located on the seventh floor—the California Deck—where views stretch over the tree-lined streets and beyond, but still give a sense of the urban activity below. It’s a small “city” on the roof—a hub of various activities promoting social collisions. Another amenity deck located on the 32nd floor—the Ojai Deck—offers a more intimate setting, with an outdoor lounge and fireside gathering space to take in the sweeping city views.
