Agreed. LA is a pretty sprawled out city, but IMO it has a bad rap. There are some really good neighborhoods there. NYC has some awesome neighborhoods and is probably the world's greatest urban experience, but it also has massive sprawl.

Anyhow, back to this building. It's not the height of architectural design, but I don't find it that bad. It would just blend in and wouldn't be that noticeable, but would also add some really good density.

There is more to America (and Los Angeles) than what the tired stereotypes suggest.
