The Growing Popularity Of Metropolis
The project's three residential towers border the 110 Freeway.
The nine-level retail/parking podium in the 21-story low-stack building and 40-story R2 high-rise tower and related mid-rise building are being built by Webcor.
The 56-story R3 tower and its 27-level low-stack building are simultaneously being constructed by Penta/Pankow.
Harley Ellis Devereaux is the base building executive architect for both Phase 2 structures and on the interiors for Phase 1’s 38-story R1 tower. Gensler is the design architect for both phases.
Metropolis will have more than 300 units in R1, over 500 units in R2 and nearly 700 units in R3 and the mid-rise buildings, totaling approximately 1,500 units.
It will also have more than 1,800 parking spaces.
The R2 tower and its mid-rise will be finished in 2018, according to Harley Ellis Devereaux business development guru Roy Reel.
The R3 tower and its mid-rise will be completed in 2019.
Approximately 80% of the units in R1 tower have been sold, according to Greenland U.S.A.
