^ ThebiteofSuarez... those photos are both interesting in that they show the progress of the respective projects, as well as beautifully composed from a technical/artistic perspective. Thank you!

^ Also looks like the 77-story new tallest is DOA as well. The lead developer on that is one of only two developers to have criminal charges levied. RIP, new tallest. RIP.

If we can now get a 1500’+ skyscraper on that 6th and Hope parking lot, that’d be great 😉

^ By 6th and Hope, do you mean the lot next to the Standard? I believe that's owned by the Standard, and is part of that property. So they would have to develop it, to the detriment of the views of their rooftop, which once the pandemic is over, is one of their top selling points - and sources of revenue.

Or the new tallest

1.5k seems like stretch but I hope some legitimately tall proposals arise in LA this decade once the pandemic clears, considering none of the current ones seem likely.

Optimism after COVID passes should help

You're very fixated on height.

DTLA isn't enough of a premium market yet to warrant really tall buildings, unless it's for a prominent location. I would rather we fill out our DT with buildings in the 100-500' range.

^^^ To quote the best movie of all time, Independence Day.

"I've been saying it. I've been saying it for 10 damn years, aint I been saying it skyscraperpage ? I've been saying it. "

And thank you for saying it with me .

I just want a sea of 300-600 proposals. Literally. Give me 30-50 of those proposed downtown and i'll be happy. Anything over 1000 is fun but DTLA needs more of the midrange. Broadway and the surrounding area already has the 100s-200s down for a generation I feel and some good ones if they get refurbished, which is already happening. I Just need south park to be more realistic with more buildings (realistic since its still full of gaps) and we sometimes neglect the civic center areas, i need little Tokyo to get a dozen 300-400 footers covered with some neon frosting.
