Metropolis Phase 1

This new mixed-use development in downtown Los Angeles redefines the urban skyline, while the pedestrian experience is designed with intention to welcome residents and hotel guests into an urban oasis.

Positioned at the front door to downtown L.A., Metropolis welcomes visitors and announces a sense of arrival. For residents of the 38-story tower or guests of the 18-story Hotel Indigo, it serves as both an exclusive retreat and a connector to the city at large, and in both roles guides the experience of a luxurious Los Angeles lifestyle.

Environmental graphics reflect the shimmering lights of the neighborhood and underscore its status as the entertainment industry’s epicenter, while signage engages passersby and invites active participation. Each component of the mixed-use development has its own personality, yet Altitude’s wayfinding and signage design connects residential, retail, and hotel tenants with a cohesive visual language that balances style with simplicity, making the guest journey feel seamless and effortless.
