Ritz-Carlton at LA Live: Blue Mosaic Facade Houses Downtown's Best Homes in the Sky

High above the city, at the Ritz-Carlton Residences at LA Live, you'll find plenty of comfort and a box seat to the some of the best views -- and certainly the best amenities -- in Downtown Los Angeles.

The Gensler-designed building offers 224 residences from the 27th to the 52nd floor of this blue, mosaic-clad building that has become a new landmark on the Downtown skyline.

The building is now 60% sold, and closings and occupancy will take place at the beginning of the new year.  There are 1 bedroom ($800,000 and up), 2 bedroom ($1,496,000 and up), and 3 bedroom ($2,124,000 and up) floorplans available, so for those looking for a pied-a-terre or a chic residence in Downtown Los Angeles, you must check out the Ritz-Carlton Residences.

The two-bedroom 27th floor model unit is designed in a warm, classic style that fits the Ritz-Carlton brand perfectly.  The apartment-style layout features two bedrooms which offer some of the most spectacular views from bedside.

This model unit has western views that encompass everything from the Hollywood Hills to the beach to the South Bay.

The kitchen has enough Gaggenau appliances and finishes to rival an outfitted Westside home -- even though you may only use it to heat up the Wolfgang Puck cuisine you order from downstairs restaurant WP24.

Climb to the 44th floor, and check out the views of one of the 3 bedroom corner units.  The space is currently under construction, but clearly, high above LA, you will never want to leave home.

The Ritz-Carlton Residences at LA Live have their own pool and gym, which are shared with the Ritz-Carlton Hotel, but are separate from the Marriott Hotel below.

On the hot summer day we visited, the pool looked particularly inviting.

Residents have access to the Sky Lobby, a floor-length building common area, which looks like a great place to wile away before a Lakers game or a concert at the Nokia Theater or Staples Center below.

Other amenities include concierge service, valet service, and one-stop LA LIVE All Access Living.  Residents get perks from the Ritz-Carlton brand such as free breakfast for two when you stay at Ritz-Carlton hotels.  And since developer AEG is also in the music business, (owning the O2 arena in London and other entertainment venues), residents at the Ritz-Carlton at LA Live get priority access to these events.

We think that Ritz-Carlton at LA Live is an incredible addition to Downtown LA and to Los Angeles itself.  Finally, the excitement and hustle bustle of the city returns to its heart.
