Vision on Wilshire rises 18 stories above Los Angeles’ iconic Wilshire Boulevard and offers unobstructed views of the area including the Hollywood Hills and downtown Los Angeles. A simple shifting of the project’s massing creates the appearance of two slender towers. This move also helps to define the corner of Wilshire and Crescent Heights, establishing a welcoming entry plaza for the project.
The tower houses 150 studio, one-, two-, and three- bedroom residences, including large penthouse suites to provide necessary variety to meet market demand. The residential units sit atop 6,000 SF of retail space and above- and below-grade parking along Wilshire Blvd. A continuous, unifying architectural language connects the above-grade parking podium and the residential units. In response to the regular and efficient stacking of the units on the tower, the designers developed a cellular pattern that shifts from level-to-level within the facade. This seemingly randomized pattern interrupts the scale and gives the structure a lively, dynamic quality.
Vision on Wilshire offers amenities that cater to residents and the local community. The development includes a sky deck with a pool and clubroom, fitness centers, and lounges. Serving as a refuge from the city, the designers created climate variety in the diverse outdoor amenities to augment the interior lounging and co-working environments. Inviting landscaping extends to a park along Crescent Heights Blvd that welcomes the public and gives back to the neighborhood.
