Boldly marketed as offering "The ultimate urban living experience" since its transformation and re-opening in 2009, 655 South Hope Street now offers 80 residences over its 17 stories. The converted building is zoned as a live-work structure with luxurious living and convenience of a metropolis for busy professionals.

This office tower conversion offers a central location in downtown Los Angeles near public transit, and stands out among its historic context with a modern emerald exterior of steel, stone, and glass.

Originally designed by architecture firm Van Tilburg, Banvard, and Soderbergh, who are also known as VTBS Architects, 655 South Hope Street offers a unique glass and stucco structure with pyramid-like designs at each exposure.

The convenient location of the now residential building offers a place to call home where residents can walk to work, enjoy the on-site fitness center and rooftop deck, and take advantage of the many restaurants and entertainment spots nearby.[1]
