With the glimmering Downtown Los Angeles skyline as a backdrop, Metropolis Los Angeles was the place to be on Thursday, May 17th as The Agency’s Co-Founder and CEO Mauricio Umansky and Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles stars James Harris and David Parnes joined The Agency Development Group for the grand unveiling of The Penthouse Collection.
Developed by Greenland USA, Metropolis is the largest mixed-use development in the Western United States; a residential, resort and retail destination encompassing 6.3 acres in Downtown’s Central Business District. The offering is perfectly situated beside L.A. Live, STAPLES Center and the Arts District, offering a highly serviced, amenity-rich lifestyle in the heart of L.A.’s most dynamic neighborhood.
Featuring some of the only two-story penthouses in Downtown L.A., The Penthouse Collection is perched atop Tower I and features eight magnificent two- and three-bedroom residences ranging in size from 1,735 to 3,534 square feet. Showcasing gracious, open floor plans and floor-to-ceiling walls of glass that capture some of the finest sky-high views of the City of Angels, Metropolis brings the vibrancy and excitement of Downtown L.A. right to its residents’ front doors, redefining the standard of luxury, urban living in Los Angeles.
Cameras were at the ready as VIP guests posed on the red carpet, making their way to the 39th floor lobby, where they were greeted with glasses of champagne and invited on a guided Penthouse tour. Guests enjoyed craft cocktails by BTL SVC, chilled by a custom LA Ice Art luge, and bites by local hotspot Otium as they explored the stunning residence, exquisitely envisioned by Michael Erno of the award-winning Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams interior design firm.
After spirited toasts by Mauricio, David, James and K. Allen Anderson, Senior Vice President of Metropolis, attendees gathered for a performance by string quartet JOPA, after which they indulged in a variety of sweet treats on display throughout the residence, including rolled ice cream from local purveyor 10Below and a Birdies donut wall in the den. As the night came to an end, guests parted with exclusive swag bags filled with goodies from LA Travel Magazine, Asha Pops, Big Sugar Cupcake’s, R2 Collateral, 10Below, SoulCycle DTLA, The Dolly Llama, Institute of Contemporary Art Los Angeles, The Reserve, Don Francisco’s Coffee, and more.
“The Penthouse Collection at Metropolis presents a unique opportunity for those seeking the finest in luxury living high above Downtown Los Angeles,” says James, who will represent the penthouse collection alongside David and The Agency Development Group. “These penthouses will raise the bar of luxury living in Downtown L.A., and we are honored to be bringing them to market along with The Agency Development Group.”
Residents of Metropolis enjoy exceptional amenities and services, including a 24/7 lobby attendant and dedicated concierge, resort pool, skypark with fire pit, residence clubhouse, fitness and yoga studios, game rooms, business center and a dog park. In addition to the neighboring sports, entertainment and financial centers, Metropolis is within moments of the cultural offerings of the Arts District, countless creative eateries and sidewalk cafes, the natural beauty of the Hollywood Hills and the iconic beaches of Santa Monica.
“It is exciting to see how the Downtown Los Angeles market has grown over the years and how the demand for high-end product is at an all-time high,” adds David. “With unparalleled amenities and services, Metropolis is among the most sought-after properties in Los Angeles, and we are excited to be a part of this new chapter for the Downtown real estate market.”
