The new Hollywood Tower Terrace on Franklyn is coming along. The homes that were torn down for this development looked much better and unique but what can you do... at least it isn't an empty lot like it was for a few years after they tore down the homes. I tried to find an old picture I had of the row of homes but I couldn't locate it. Anyway, here's the almost complete new development:

Ditto on the 1030 N Alvarado sentiments. That's a really nice design. Let's hope the finishes do the render justice.

Here's how it's coming along:



Oh, and Crescent Heights is West, not east of Fairfax.

I agree. These types of designs are sorely needed as infill all across Los Angeles. And if you guys get overrun with them, can you send them out here to Tucson? Pwease?

That's the old Columbia Savings building at the corner of Wilshire and La Brea. It is being demolished for a mixed-use development.

I just drove by that over the weekend; I'm glad it's being demolished. The strip mall next door to it was also being demolished, I'm thinking it's already gone by now.

so, end of the day, this is a winner? Got some deco, ground-level retail, about 4-7 stories, at transit. Fought through the NIMBY attack by tapering down to neighborhood level on the side streets. Any major issues or complaints?

I can't believe a ton of Curbed's members were defended this structure. One of them even compared it to buildings in the Historic Core. Clearly a NIMBY.

im not gonna say that it was a great piece of architecture, but as brutalist designs go, i think it was one of the better representations of the style. something about those white fins gave it an intriguing personality.

i drove past that today and was wondering what that was too. also the seemingly abandoned project in the block between these two on the other side of wilshire.

edit: did some research and apparently both lots are supposed to eventually hold the new beverly hills bmw.

A 13-story tower proposal soon to surface around the Grove. No rendering yet, and will likely get downsized, but good to see that developers are starting to think high rise again...

From the Los Angeles Times:


Casden Properties proposes condo project near the Grove
The 300-unit development at 3rd Street and Ogden Drive is similar to one rejected by the community in 2006, but the builder hopes to win support by reserving more homes for senior citizens.
By Esmeralda Bermudez
January 21, 2010

Nearly four years after the community beat back a proposal to build a 300-unit condo project near the Grove shopping center, complaining it was too dense and would generate too much traffic, the developer has come up with a new plan: Another 300-unit condo project, this one with taller buildings and about three times as many units set aside for senior citizens.

The redesigned project by Casden Properties will be presented to community leaders next week, and developer Alan Casden hopes the enhanced senior citizen component will win him support this time around.

But the proposal is coming under scrutiny from neighbors over familiar issues -- traffic, density and whether Casden has met an original condition to turn the site into an assisted living center.

The Beverly Hills developer known for building the luxurious Palazzo Westwood Village wants to demolish an existing Ross Dress for Less building at the southeast corner of 3rd Street and Ogden Drive and construct four buildings, the tallest at 13 stories. The site is known for being hit by a methane gas explosion in March 1985.

The development would include 75 rental units for low-income seniors, and another 75 would be reserved for seniors and sold at the market rate. The remaining units would be sold at market rate. A parking structure with 662 spaces would also be built.

"This is what we have to do to make the project work and we think it's a quality project," said Howard Katz, vice president of community development for Casden.

If approved, the homes could be completed by 2014.
