Great news! Offsets my depression from the 43 story Liebeskind downtown being converted to 7 story apartments.

Agree with LASF: Hollywood looks to be continuing as one of the real growth centers of LA, with buildings of some interest. As it should be.

But I guess I should stay skeptical until the cranes show-up.

Is California Landmark's Wilshire/Barrington Tower finally under construction? I've noticed cranes and other heavy construction equipment on-site the past week.

^ I haven't heard anything about that. Can you grab some pictures next time you're there? That would be really cool if it was back on.

^It looks like it's back on though can't be sure. I only have a crappy phone camera. If anyone else is in the area with a quality camera please take a pic. Otherwise I'll try to get one off my phone.

That intersection needs some development because it's on life support right now. Hopefully they are actually moving forward now with this tower.

Wilshire/Barrington is about to break ground? Who would have thunk that the Westside would be the first place in L.A. to break the high-rise drought.... Not that I am complaining, of course!

Does anyone know of a thread specifically for the Wilshire/Barrington project? If not maybe we should make one because it is pretty clear work has started on that site.

^ I drove by the Wilshire/Barrington Tower site last night on my way out. There's a concrete pump and 2 crane's on site. Not sure if they're truck-mounted cranes or crawler cranes. Couldn't see because of the fence barricade. They were working into the early evening. If I can get some pics soon I will.

Westlake TOD

2 shots from this afternoon of the Westlake/MacArthur Park TOD. I'll hold off judgment on the ground floor since it's still going through some work, but it's hard not to be disappointed by how cheap the rest of the building looks. It's going to look poorly aged in less than a few years.

This city never ceases to disappoint me when it comes to every single new development that goes up. Really?

That's just not true. You should look at the developments posted on the blog Queens Crap. It makes LA look pretty good by comparison. In fact this building, which is cheap-looking affordable housing, looks about as good or better than the average project being built in Queens. Or in most US cities really. LA doesn't do much very well, but we have a lower proportion of wtf architecture than most cities. We're consistently average which is more than most can say.

Although perhaps not the most ambitious architecturally, every planner and zoning official should come to DC to see how to do transit-oriented development and infill right. While we have some developments that could be better, DC consistently gets this right.

Awesome Downtown Aerial

Is this really how dense DT LA is? I never fully been in DT only seen it from USC (which is a awesome college btw) since I was on a college tour and DT wasn't on our plans.

Yes, DTLA is really that dense. Also, this question should probably be in the Downtown Los Angeles thread, but whatever.
