in the city that invented the word.
Located at the corner of Figueroa and 12th Street, Circa marks the convergence of recreation, residential and retail, tying together the South Park and Sports and Entertainment districts in the heart of downtown LA. Steps from the STAPLES Center, LA Live and the Los Angeles Convention Center, the two thirty-five story towers electrify the LA skyline with a dramatic 27,000 square foot display of LED digital signage—larger than any featured in NYC’s famed Times Square.
But the real showstopper? Attention-grabbing amenities that entice renters even in a market where luxury is business as usual. A two-acre park connects the two towers 90 feet above street level, and features wading and lap pools, dog parks, outdoor fitness and lounge areas and communal fire pits. Elegant interior spaces—from a library and wine bar to clubhouse, business center and dedicated yoga and Pilates rooms—epitomize California chic, taking full advantage of the region’s climate by leveraging indoor/outdoor connections.
While Circa’s opulent amenities may have residents’ heads in the clouds, the building itself is closely connected to its surroundings. The curvilinear design of the two towers not only make use of every available square foot of its 2.7-acre lot, but also reference the surrounding architecture. The towers’ offset construction, unique curved design and sleek glass exteriors maximize stunning vistas of the San Gabriel Mountains, Hollywood Hills and downtown skyline, with select units providing continuous 180-degree views. At ground level, high-end retailers and restaurants engage the broader public and further activate the street.
Upon completion, the development will achieve a uniquely urban synergy of recreation and residential, establishing a magnetic, dynamic atmosphere that will rival Times Square—and create an iconic new southern boundary for downtown Los Angeles.
