"Hasn't rained in over a year" is a bit of a stretch, but we are in a significant drought. In fact, we had the driest rain season ever on record this year. We only got 3.21 inches of rain in this year's season. 15 inches is the average. Here's the National Weather Service's take.

Regarding the comments about LA's skyline eclipsing New York's, it's completely irrelevant to this thread, and frankly it's those kind of inane comments that start petty pissing matches between different cities. Let's nip this in the bud right now.

Park Fifth has nothing to do with New York's skyline. It's a great project for downtown LA because it will not only contribute significantly to the urban experience downtown, but it will make a visual impact in the skyline when viewed from the east or the south.

It was reported by the developer in the annual downtown developers meeting that the larger balconies will be over 1,000 sq. ft.

1,000 sq ft. for a balcony? That'll make for one helluva party 76 stories up. I still don't like the top of the taller tower. It looks like an awkward afterthought to me.

What does this have to do with Park Fifth? Keep stuff like this out of this thread.

Actually, I like LA's skyline more than those two cities.

I'm pretty sure that's what he said. I have a hard time even picturing it from the renders.

It rains in LA, the water supply is fine, and the population is soaring, unlike most cities in the US, LA's population has been going up for at least a 100 years. It's possible, LA already has dozens of skylines, put them together and wooh!

Exuse me, all Houston's Skyline, combined is much smaller than LA's, and please, we can all agree Miami's got one hell of an ugly skyline. Quality, not quanity.

Why is it that all of your comments are always this ridiculous? You need a reality check. Los Angeles building as much as Dubai? Los Angeles skyline surpassing the NYC skyline in size? When will you stop?

You all guys cheering for LA are ridiculous !
What next ? San Diego eclipsing Chicago ?


Going on topic, I liked the previous renders of park 5th, they suited LA more.

JDR was the only one who said that Los Angeles' skyline would one day eclipse the New York City skyline.

Oh, and about the Houston and Miami skylines. Sorry, but they're not much better than the Los Angeles skyline, if at all. And it wouldn't be that hard for the Los Angeles skyline to eclipse either of them, to be honest with you.

Lastly, the renderings for Park Fifth haven't changed at all.

Then I must've got some misunderstanding looking at those yellow art-deco renders.
My apology.

How the hell can LA eclipse Houston while it has only 1 scraper over 900' and Houston has 3 >900 footers. Maybe you need to learn the definition of 'eclipsing' first.

Now please stop this LA vs whatever.........

And maybe there's better rendering for this building along the way, this design may look good in Miami but not LA.

You're a troll.

Houston and Miami only have a few more skyscrapers than Los Angeles. Height is nowhere near as important as density is. I'd rather have two 450 footers as opposed to one 900 footer to be honest with you. Additionally, diversity in architecture and overall prescence are two other factors that determine the overall quality of a skyline. Taller doesn't equal better and it doesn't mean that you can't "eclipse" a skyline just because you don't have the height to match. "Eclipse" can mean a variety of things, height being a factor but not the sole factor. Oh snap. So now I need a dictionary to help me determine my personal opinions toward skylines?

Stop this "LA vs. whatever?" You're the one who is coming in here and trolling. And you're the one who accelerated the flames by adding your little comment about Houston and Miami.

Well it ain't proposed for Miami. I happen to like this design. A tower designed by a world class architecture firm for a world class city. How appropriate.

two 450' > one 900 huh ?
This means that São Paulo has better skyline than Chicago ????
I mean, C'mon
You don't even know what you're saying ! Lose it fella !!

And regarding the design of this building, ain't very bad and maybe they can improve the top. Completely flat top without setbacks will look great.

Thats right, I liked this before, but then I got mixed feelings about this one after I observed other skyscrapers of LA , certainly not a bad design but doesn't look like any other building in LA. It doesn't seems to be getting 'dissolved' in the skyline. On its own I have to say its quite cool.
