All the distance views show them as taller, and I believe they are about the same elevation as the themes. In all your observations, aren't they noticibly taller?

From wikipedia: the Theme Towers are 571' tall, the Century Plaza twins 600'. This is from new and official sources. I'll post the link later.



Emporis has them at 600 feet, but Skyscraper Page. Com draws them in at 550 feet on the LA buildings profile.

What's the deal with Constellation Park in Century City? I remember Urbanize reported that they broke ground, but that was over a year ago, and I haven't seen any activity there since?

I don't have any insider knowledge, but my perception is that Covid-19 put a pause in the plans for that project.

Although this isn’t the place for political talk, I think it’s worth acknowledging that urban planner Nithya Raman defeated incumbent David Ryu for City Council District 4. And Paul Koretz, who killed the “Uplift Melrose” streetscape improvement project will be out of office by mid-2021 after having served a maximum three terms.

Don't know if this has been reported here before but thought you guys should know if not:

Blackstone Flexes Its Muscles in Hollywood
BY Dow Jones & Company, Inc.
— 8:00 AM ET 11/17/2020

A Blackstone Group partnership is planning to develop a new office tower near the sprawling Burbank and Warner Bros. studio complexes in California, where television programs such as "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" and "Days of Our Lives" are produced.

Blackstone's plan with Worthe Real Estate Group to build the 500,000-square-foot tower represents one of the largest U.S. office developments to move forward this year.

The project, which will be positioned to attract employees in the entertainment business, is a sign that space serving the TV and film industries is one of the few bright spots in the office sector during the coronavirus pandemic, which has forced many employees to work from home . . . .

Mr. Worthe said the decision to move ahead with the new building was made recently at a meeting of the venture that he formed with Blackstone in 2017. The venture owns 13 buildings and five development parcels, acquired for a total of $ 1.7 billion . . . .

Blackstone and Worthe are likely to break ground on the new building in 2022 on a site adjoining an existing office tower. That 480,000-square-foot property is fully leased thanks partly to demand from the Burbank Studios, which is across the street . . . .

Blackstone ($$$$) and Worthe (Expertise)? That's a potent combination! I'd say this has a high likelihood of happening.

Could this be a 20 or 25 story high-rise?

I am by no means an expert on LA geography. I looked at the Worthe web site to see if there was more information there. There are several possible projects listed--I wasn't sure which, if any of them, might be the one in question.

Seemed like maybe it could be "The Tower" (that sounds like a preliminary name) at 3900 W. Alameda Ave. But maybe you guys can figure it out.

The Tower

^ "The Tower" is the existing building in the foreground. A 500,000 sq ft tower would likely be similar in stature to that building.

Question

Yea. That's what I'm guessing.
Maybe even 30 stories.
There's no nimby issues, right?

Great update from Roger Vincent at the Times on the multiple revitalization projects at the Port of Los Angeles and San Pedro.

Living in Perth, do you feel like you are isolated and lonely? If I lived in Australia I'm quite sure I would live in Perth or maybe Freemantle, with Adelaide and Hobart being my second and third choices. California is just getting too crowded, no advantage in a pandemic.

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome. Grabbed these shots a couple weeks ago when I came down from Vegas...Quality isn't the best but you can definitely get an idea of whats going on. Per the thread rules, i excluded the Downtown photos & put them on the other LA thread for you to check out.

Exciting time for the Wilshire corridor. Between all the infill development, the Purple Line extension, and the museum district developments, there is a ton to see all the way from Koreatown right through Miracle Mile, Century City, west to the 405.

Thanks for the shots, WayOutWest! Shoreline Gateway is coming along nicely. Can't say the same for the podium of 2900 Wilshire. Looks very cheap compared to the tower, and that's the part that's closest to how most people will view it.

I drive through Downtown Long Beach every day.....it truly has soooo much potential. I wish it was more of a destination. It needs something to be a bigger draw. I wish Disney had built that theme park in the late 90s/ Early 2000s like they were going to (hate you nimby's and hotel lobbyist). I think that would have really pushed Long Beach to rival SD in terms of beach city.

(For those who don't know, Disney once planned for a theme park, now California Adventure, to be built right next to the Queen Mary when they were scouting for a new park. California Adventure meets Epcot, didn't happen because they were beaten down by nimbys who didn't want the traffic, Hotel lobbyist downtown who were offended that Disney planned on building its own hotel and to make it worse, disney was struggling finanically back then.)

I don't know, it's kind of a nice reprieve from the "city". Now it's calm, affordable, walkable. Don't think it would be if it had that element to it. Just like if the Port was built in the Santa Monica Bay instead of Long Beach, think of the surf/skate culture that would probably not exist because our downtown would be by the sea (as much as I would love to see it there sometimes).
