The Grand by Gehry, downtown’s most anticipated residential tower designed by world-renowned architect Frank Gehry and developed by Related Companies, has unveiled Top of the Grand, 113 ultra-luxury apartments located on floors 29-45, comprised of best-in-class interior finishes by prominent interior designer Tony Ingrao and exclusive access to sophisticated common spaces by David Rockwell and Rockwell Group, an award-winning, interdisciplinary architecture and design firm specializing in hospitality and culture. Intentionally positioned as a private, in-residence members club, the first-of-its-kind to launch in Los Angeles, Top of the Grand offers unrivaled access to a premier suite of curated lifestyle programs and amenities.
Situated at the apex of the building with its own dedicated elevator bank, reception area, and amenities, Top of the Grand residences boast California modernism designs set against sweeping views across downtown, the San Gabriel Mountains, and the Pacific Ocean, complimented by warm wood tones, rich natural materials, and elegant textures, creating a tranquil and inviting ambiance in the heart of the city. Additional features include 10’ ceilings, 6” wide-plank flooring throughout, Elfa custom closets, Salto keyless entry, dimmable light switches, and Nest thermostats.
“The ambiance of a luxe yet laidback Southern California lifestyle are infused into every aspect of the buildings’ architecture and design, offering residents the most sought-after features and one-of-a-kind design details,” says Phoebe Yee, Executive Vice President of Design at Related California. “Elegant living spaces coupled with the proximity to Grand Avenue’s cultural surroundings are just a few of the defining features of this exceptional residence.”
Open gourmet kitchens feature Thermador and Bosch smart appliances with Home Connect technology and Marvel wine refrigerators with integrated paneling, custom grey oak cabinetry, Bianco Neve quartzite countertops with dramatic Crystal Blue quartzite backsplashes and Dornbracht fixtures. Luxury primary bathrooms offer Naxos marble counters and custom walnut vanities, while secondary bathrooms are outfitted with silver travertine counters atop grey oak cabinetry, all appointed with Dornbracht fixtures.
Debuting as Rockwell Group’s very first residential project on the west coast, the luxurious 22,000 square feet of amenity space offers indoor-outdoor entertaining for intimate events, full-service concierge and bespoke lifestyle and wellness services reserved only for residents. Rockwell Group thoughtfully designed such spaces to maximize unparalleled views and vantages of the neighboring cultural landmarks including Frank Gehry’s masterpiece, the Walt Disney Concert Hall. Top of The Grand provides unrivaled access to the best of Grand Avenue’s leading arts institutions and Los Angeles’ most sought-after dining and wellness destinations.
“This development has always been envisioned with the responsibility of one day becoming a landmark building in Downtown Los Angeles. Residents will be a part of a building that is transformative with special ties to the Grand Ave Arts Corridor,” says Tony Ingrao, Principal at Ingrao Inc.
Other standout features designed by Rockwell Group include the 31st floor Sky Lounge, reflective of California style and landscape, incorporating light and airy color palettes and textures that flow into an open-air terrace with glass walls. The 2,500 square foot, oasis includes a demonstration kitchen, catering kitchen, private dining, bar and lounge area with an 86” large display screen and baby grand player piano, expansive enclosed terrace with separate lounge and dining areas, fire pit and BBQ.
“Frank Gehry’s vision was always present,” says Greg Keffer, Partner at Rockwell Group. “By pairing his big, bold massing with a simple, neutral, and modern palette, I think we were able to bring to life that intangible California effortlessness. Our Sky Lounge on the 31st floor is the epitome of this spirit, with a custom millwork and granite show kitchen, a dining table for ten, and an outdoor terrace. Fumed oak floors, bronze metal mesh sliding doors, velvet and linen upholstery, and stone coffee tables ground the space while allowing guests to feel like they are floating above the city skyline.”
