The development near Walt Disney Concert Hall is finally moving forward.

The Frank Gehry-designed Grand Avenue Project, long-delayed for years, is now expected to break ground in the next couple of years now that’s been approved by the city and has a $290 million investment from a Chinese firm.
A Gehry-designed portion of the Grand Avenue Project may finally be completed after a decade of planning, but only with major taxpayer assistance. The City Council is considering a huge tax break for the developers to build condos and a luxury hotel.
