You can now get a glimpse of what Hollywood's Academy Square will look like when it's finished in 2018. Academy Square is a huge, 3.5 acre project in Hollywood bordered by Vine, DeLongpre, Ivar and Homewood Streets, Urbanize LA reports.

There will be 280,000 square feet set aside for shops and office space split among multiple four-story buildings, then a 23-tower that will either contain 250 apartments or 200 apartments and 100 hotel rooms. There have been some guesses as to what kind of retail the project will contain. Curbed LA reported that there would be a 40,000 square foot supermarket.

The video, courtesy of Kilroy Realty, zooms through renderings of the project, featuring a bright, red dog statue in a fountain, billboards, patios, lots of green space and pedestrian paths and the tower's rooftop pool deck.
