New York-based Handel Architects is helming the design of the $1.2-billion mixed-use Angels Landing site in Los Angeles. Philadelphia-based landscape architecture firm Olin will also serve on the project to oversee the design of more than 50,000 square feet of public open space.

Slated for completion in 2024, the 2.2-acre site will include an 88-story skyscraper and a 25-story tower that will be linked by a sky bridge.

In addition to two hotels from SBE, including a 192-room SLS and 289-room Mondrian, the towers will have 400 apartments, 250 condominiums. Twenty of the apartments will be set aside as affordable housing.
