Olympic & Olive Debuts in Downtown Los Angeles

July 18, 2017

Sleek design and expanded amenities attract short- and long-term stays in furnished apartments

DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES, Calif. — KTGY Architecture + Planning has revealed its designs for Olympic & Olive at 1001 South Olive Street.  The development combines fully furnished apartments with the latest amenities, hotel-like services, and a sleek design befitting its location in DTLA’s booming South Park neighborhood.

Olympic & Olive is designed for easy accessibility to surrounding DTLA, and to attract short- and long-term tech, media and entertainment business travelers in Los Angeles, among others. Singapore-based Mapletree Investments, the new parent company of Oakwood Worldwide, is the property owner.

“We love working in South Park with all it offers and all that it is becoming,” said KTGY Principal David Senden. “We wanted to make the most of this relatively compact site and so we arranged the south-facing 3rd floor pool deck for maximum sunlight, and wrapped the deck around the corner of the building to provide great views of the neighborhood.”

Olympic & Olive amenities are desirable to short- or long-term stay residents: a wide variety of co-working areas and meeting rooms, multiple indoor and outdoor social spaces including rooftop lounge, courtyards, dog park, club room, bike storage, high-tech fitness center, and package-delivery area.  Residences range from interior courtyard apartments to city view apartments to roomy townhomes.  Hollywood Sign-inspired block letter signage and floor-to-ceiling white curtains further distinguish the building, along with elements such as dynamic cantilevers and tactile materials.

“Along Olive Street, nine townhomes with individual front doors connect residents directly to street life,” said Senden.

All residences are furnished, including essentials from linens to coffee makers. And the entire building is wired with high-speed internet, cable TV and telephones.
