Grand LA, the $1 billion complex by Frank Gehry in Los Angeles, is about to be completed

The great architect’s latest creation for “his” city involves a luxury hotel, restaurants, shopping, and a residential tower.

Right in front of the Walt Disney Concert Hall, designed by Frank Gehry, where today stands the $1 billion mixed-use complex The Grand LA, by the same architect, there was an anonymous parking lot.

The Conrad Hotel and The Grand by Gehry residential tower opened last summer, while the central shopping and dining areas of the project are expected to open later this year.

The Grand by Gehry residential tower is a 45-story tower with 436 rental apartments, while the Conrad rises 28 stories and boasts 305 hotel rooms. Its interiors were designed by the architecture firm Tara Bernerd and Partners, which has included works by artists from the city, such as the massive yellow tapestry by Mimi Jung and the ceramic stoneware wall by Ben Medansky.

The architect is strongly connected to the city. Born in 1929, Frank Gehry immigrated to Los Angeles in 1947, when he was still a teenager, and after university studies he opened there his firm in 1962, quickly gaining fame as a great architect and becoming a true icon of the city.
