Norman Foster Hollywood Office Tower Will Feature Spiral Design

Architect Norman Foster has submitted plans for a $1-billion office tower on Hollywood’s Sunset Boulevard, offering a project that will feature spiral terraces and greenery wrapped around its facade.

The 22-story building will be called “The Star,” and would join the firm’s impressive collection of unique building designs around the world.

The British architect’s firm Foster + Partners has rendered scenes of elevated gardens with plants and trees, as well as outdoor decks and modern office space.

Foster described it as a “true reflection of the workplace of the future, nurturing community, wellbeing and collaboration” in a statement.

Prospective tenants would be part of a “a modern landmark.” The Star will be home to entertainment firms and “Hollywood’s top content creators,” said Foster + Partners. Current plans include production space, a gallery, a screening theater, a rooftop restaurant and “community gathering spaces” at ground level.

The proposal replaces an earlier plan for the site unveiled in 2019.

Should the city accept the proposal, construction on The Star will start by early 2026 and be finished in 2029.

The market for new commercial real estate is currently difficult for landlords. More than 25% of the city’s office space is currently vacant, according to data from property brokerage Savills. The trend toward remote work has been blamed by many.
