Real estate developer Ricardo Pagan has made his mark on New York City and Detroit, but the biggest project of his career aims to change the skyline of downtown L.A.

@jflem94 reports:…
Pagan is founder and chief exec of Claridge Properties, 1 of 3 developers tasked with erecting the Angels Landing project — a $1.5-billion development that will bring two skyscrapers to the Bunker Hill neighborhood near the historic Angels Flight railway.…
Angels Landing has been touted as a mini neighborhood.

Plans for the ambitious project include affordable as well as market-rate condos, apartments, shops, restaurants, two hotels, a park and even an elementary school.…
If the larger of the two buildings reaches its planned height of 1,000 feet, the skyscraper will be one of the tallest buildings west of the Mississippi River.
For Pagan, who emigrated from the Dominican Republic as a teenager in the early 1990s, the project is personal.
