Across Figueroa from the Staples Center and catty-corner to L.A. Live is a property that could someday be L.A. Central. Originally set to be home of two towers--53 and 37 stories--over 850 market-rate units, a 222-room hotel and 250,000 square feet of retail, the project has seen trouble in past years, but plans are still afoot, even if a bit scaled back reports Eric Richardson at blogdowtown.
