BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (June 22, 2017)—Among more than 200 projects vying for top industry honors at the 47th Annual Los Angeles Architectural Awards this year, the design-build team behind the 1755 Argyle Residential Tower today emerged as victors in a distinguished group of just 35 honorees whose projects set new standards in design excellence, innovation and sustainability.
Award winners LARGE Architecture, Related California, and Build Group earned today’s prestigious recognition through a rigorous evaluation process. LAAA juries representing a cross section of industry experts select winners from a highly competitive pool of project entrants spanning the entirety of Los Angeles County. In honoring the design-build team behind 1755 Argyle Residential Tower, the LAAA jury recognized the entire group of architects, contractors, project managers, and developers, who were each distinguished in a collaboration to create and build their visionary project.
This year’s award ceremony, which was hosted by the Los Angeles Business Council at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, drew more than 500 attendees representing leading design and building professionals and top city officials.
“This critical milestone here at 1755 Argyle and is the culmination of months of hard work from our project team and scores of tradespeople,” said Build Group, Inc. Southern California President Todd Pennington following the event. “This has been a great opportunity to pause and celebrate the great work completed to date, and to look ahead to the successful completion of the project.”
Today’s LAAA honors were only the latest among recent memorable milestones to celebrate achievements of the 1755 Argyle Avenue project.
In May, the luxury residential tower’s topping-out celebration represented an even wider but no less distinguished group of collaborators, including Irvine, Calif.-based developer Related California, the acclaimed interior designers of Marmol Radziner & Associates, and the hundreds of construction workers who are expertly realizing the project’s vision. Together with then-LAAA contenders LARGE Architecture and Build Group, Inc., the full complement of professionals responsible for the project’s achievement celebrated the traditional builders’ rite of placing the last beam—after it had already been placed on April 26, 2017, because construction was a week ahead of schedule.
Both ceremonies represent well-deserved milestones for the celebrated project. With an award-winning lineage now honoring every aspect of its visionary achievement, the 1755 Argyle Residential Tower takes a worthy place in the storied heart of Hollywood, adjacent to the historic Capitol Records building. For its fast-growing neighborhood, the project will bring market-rate apartments, 2,100 square feet of commercial space, and a five-level, 201-stall parking garage, along a bustling street with a regional Red Line subway stop conveniently nearby. For residents who will call it home, 1755 Argyle will be an 18-story, 114-unit, LEED Silver, luxury residential tower offering panoramic views that stretch from the Hollywood sign to the Pacific Ocean.
Build Group, Inc. is serving as the general contractor and is self-performing concrete—which took 25 pours—on the new high-rise project through its subsidiary, Pacific Structures.
