LOS ANGELES — Construction of a huge condominium, hotel and retail complex in downtown Los Angeles has paused.

The Los Angeles Times reports that Beijing-based builder Oceanwide Holdings issued a statement recently saying the stall is due to recapitalization of the project and work is expected to resume in mid-February.

The Oceanwide Plaza project across the street from the Staples Center sports arena is expected to cost more than $1 billion.

Its three towers have already been built to heights of as much as 55 storeys and its 500-plus luxury condos and hotel are envisioned to join the renaissance of once-dowdy downtown L.A.

The Times reports that Chinese companies have been among the biggest commercial real estate investors in the Los Angeles area in the post-recession boom.
