Real Estate Empire: Metropolis Sets the Stage for Grand Opening Extravaganza

Thursday, July 13th will bring DTLA one of the most anticipated real estate developments of all time. The Grand Opening of the second tower at the Metropolis site. Metropolis will be complete with four wonderfully designed buildings that promise to add to the splendor of the new downtown Los Angeles. Metropolis has redefined the L.A. skyline and streetscape while setting a rarified new standard in upscale downtown living and this Thursday, Metropolis Los Angeles will open its first residential tower with a VIP grand opening party.

The exclusive event will feature eclectic drinks and food in the spirit of DTLA, and a diversity of entertainment including musical performances by HOLA (Heart of Los Angeles). Guests can experience different areas and elements of the luxury property: from its MET SIX community space, skypark and pool, to model homes and central art installation, CONVERGENCELA. Metropolis executives will be on hand for interviews.

Greenland USA, a subsidiary of Shanghai-based Greenland Holding Group, has invested over $1 billion to create a new downtown landmark, in partnership with architectural/ design firms Gensler and J-G Neukomm Architecture, and Douglas Elliman Development Marketing. Located two blocks from Staples Center and L.A. Live, the finished property will feature four distinct towers with uniquely shaped cascading rooftops, including the recently opened Hotel Indigo.

Metropolis, when fully completed in 2019, is slated to be the largest mixed-use development in the western United States, at appx. 3.5 million sq. ft. on 6.33 acres. The project’s first of three residential towers rises 38 floors and 308 units; the second and third towers, at 40 and 56 floors, respectively, are currently under construction.

Yup, you guessed it. It's me Keri Freeman, publisher and concept designer for Downtown Weekly. Living, working and playing in Downtown coming from an entertainment background...I discovered something about myself. I discovered I really liked sharing my knowledge of DTLA and its awesome hospitality movement. Also in doing so I have the great pleasure of working with incredible sponsors (who believe in the vision), extraordinary literary artists, photographers, event coordinators and many talented artists and musicians who inspire me every day to keep the DTLA Weekly going. Also, it would seem I'm the only woman of color to publish a newspaper here in over 100 years, so hopefully that inspires some future generations as well....Just remember if its can't be work....Thank you, people of Gaia, for your continued support and thank you for reading!
