National real estate investor and developer Lightstone has revealed that the dual-branded Moxy Los Angeles Downtown and AC Hotel Los Angeles Downtown has topped out. The property is located in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles, directly across the street from the Los Angeles Convention Center and Staples Center. Scheduled to open in late 2022, the 37-story, 600,000-sq.-ft. mixed-use tower will consist of a dual-branded, 380-room Moxy hotel and a 347-room AC hotel. The property will also include more than 22,000 sq. ft. of premium digital and static signage, featuring the largest continuous full-motion digital display on the West Coast, according to Lightstone, and more than 8,000 sq. ft. of ground-floor retail space.
The all-glass tower was designed by Gensler, while international design firm Yabu Pushelberg designed the hotel lobbies and guestrooms.
The Moxy and AC hotels will offer a 6,000-sq.-ft. landscaped pool deck and 12 restaurant and bar concepts designed by Basile Studio. On the 34th floor, AC’s sky lobby will feature a garden-like terrace bar with panoramic views overlooking Downtown Los Angeles. The hotels will also have 13,000 sq. ft. of meeting space, also designed by Basile Studio.
Moxy and AC Hotel Los Angeles Downtown adds to Lightstone’s growing hotel development portfolio, including the flagship Moxy Times Square, Moxy Chelsea and Moxy East Village, all in Manhattan. Earlier this year, Lightstone debuted its first Moxy property outside of New York, Moxy Miami South Beach. The company’s portfolio will include a total of seven Moxy properties, with Moxy Lower East Side and Moxy Williamsburg scheduled to open in 2022 in New York.
