"The committee overseeing an estimated $1.2-billion development in downtown Los Angeles passed over a high-profile design team headed by architect Frank Gehry on Monday, selecting two less well-known teams as finalists for the project... One of the two finalists is the Related Cos., a team that includes David Childs, who designed the Freedom Tower proposal for the ground zero site in New York City, and Los Angeles-based Thom Mayne, who designed the new Caltrans headquarters downtown. The second finalist, Forest City Enterprises, is a Cleveland-based firm that has primarily developed shopping centers in California."
