Circa is a nearly $500 million, mixed-use development that includes both designer rental apartments and retail that will provide a desirable urban lifestyle in the heart of downtown LA’s sports and entertainment district. Anchored by STAPLES Center, LA Live, and the Los Angeles Convention Center, Circa will achieve an urban synergy of entertainment and residential activity that will rival New York City’s Time Square.
With 2 million square feet of residential, retail, and restaurant space situated at 12th Street between Figueroa and Flower in downtown LA, Circa will be “the”destination in DTLA, one of the most dynamic parts of the city. To generate a magnetic and dynamic atmosphere, nationally- branded retailers and restaurants will occupy 48,000 square feet of Circa’s ground floor, catering to residents, locals, and Downtown visitors alike.
To meet the needs of area residents as well as Los Angeles’ growing population, Circa will provide 648 one bedroom, two bedroom and penthouse units ranging in size from 700 to 3,800 square feet- all built to “condo specifications,” complete with luxury and European high-end finishes. The residential units begin above the 100-foot high amenity deck on the 8th floor, rising to three penthouse levels, topping out at 400 feet on the 34th floor. Residents will have exclusive access to the posh, resort-like amenity deck, featuring Circa’s signature round lounge pool appointed with private cabanas, a lap pool, spas, sun deck, fully-equipped gym and yoga room, as well as a dog park. Circa will also provide over 1500 parking stalls for residents, retail, and events in the area.
Integrating into the urban fabric of LA, Circa will be fully accessible via multiple modes of transportation: walking, biking, driving, and public transportation. The Expo Line and Blue Line rail stop is across the street from Circa, providing connections to Santa Monica, Culver City, and Long Beach, as well as other downtown destinations including the MTA Red Line Subway and Union Station.
The development will transform DTLA with 15,000 square feet of digital signage, 12,500 square feet of static signage, and crown signage on the rooftop of Circa.
The completion of the entire project is slated for occupancy in 2017.
