Long overdue repurposing of the West LA Civic Center. Looks great, but I'd imagine the developers are going to have a massive fight on their hands to get the EIR approved on this one. Is this near enough to the Expo Line to benefit from TOD density bonuses? Looks like they are keeping some of the old facades and reusing them, which is pretty cool.

I wish it still included the high rise initially proposed but 1000 units and above average architecture is nothing to sneeze at. I'll take it!

The sidewalk landscaping is wide and filled with vegetation. They could have placed the sidewalk in the middle rather than pushed out into the street, to give a more pleasant park-like experience. Another missed opportunity is the the parking structure. If they're gonna consolidate parking, why not build has high as possible? This was one project where the city should have demanded a parking structure requirement. People are currently paying $1000s for an uber ride or parking spot for the Super Bowl. And that wasn't even stretched to max capacity of Sofi.

But yeah, overall a big improvement compared to what is there right now.
I'm glad the mural won't be covered up. It is called "Isle of California," (1972) by Victor Henderson, Terry Schoonhoven, and Jim Frazin of the
Los Angeles Fine Arts Squad.

Here's what it looked like decades ago:


This is how I have always known it:


Perhaps the mural can be restored as part of the new development?
