Hey! I represent that remark!

But I actually think that there will be minimal fuss over this one. SaMo has been getting taller and taller recently. The Fairmont is going to be at least in the teens, in terms of stories, and the u/c Village is nine stories, but is at least 100 ft tall. I have faith.

Oh, and remember rumors that the Ritz Carlton wanted to build a 22 story hotel in DT SaMo? What are the chances that this is what the rumors were referring to?

Good luck knocking down that old building on the lower-right of the parcel. I'm sure it can be done - but that will just delay the project by 2 years

I didn't realize, it was actually 2 buildings that are rather handsome, old buildings, of which west LA has a dearth of. Remember, you can't replace these. I predict that preservationists and neighbors will be up in arms about demolishing these, even the replacement is a Gehry.

Old does not equal historic. A lot of people assume that and it's just isn't true.

That corner is actually all just one generic mixed-use building http://goo.gl/maps/bexqH . The newer facades in front of each business are nothing special. The project proposal actually says there are two real landmarked buildings on the north end of the lot that will be preserved and incorporated into the art museum campus component of the project, so that gives them a leg up on the preservation issue.

Also note the public observation deck on the 244-foot high roof.

I don't remember if this thing on melrose has been mentioned, but i guess it's about to break ground or is already under construction.

^ Pretty sure KOTH has made mention of that a few times, citing that it's under construction.

I believe he was talking about a separate project on Melrose that utilizes the small lot ordinance.

Westie, the project you're thinking of is 5112 Melrose (at Gramercy Place, just west of Western; near Paramount Studios), which is a 49-unit new home community being built using the small lot ordinance. Here is some useful info on the project in mention: http://la.curbed.com/archives/2012/0...tle_houses.php & http://www.landadvisors.com/pdf/CALA67110.pdf.

At any rate, great to see development on Melrose! IMO, its eastern sections offer one of the more underrated and undervalued, as well as best-located, thoroughfares in town.

They should just call the SLO the New Urbanism Ordinance. I love it.

And hot off the memory card since I was at work earlier and this is just a couple of blocks away: the small lot parcel on Melrose, they have completed grading and look to have to remove a pile of dirt, but the streets are clearly visible. Exciting to see this finally happen in L.A.

Add another one to the list in Hollywood-

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000...ons_realestate

Hooray for Hollywood!



Kilroy Realty will start construction on a project on Hollywood's Columbia Square site.

A stalled project in Hollywood is set to finally get under way in a development that will test demand for office space in the slowly gentrifying area. The company, a real-estate investment trust based in Los Angeles, said it will begin construction this spring.

The mixed-use project will eventually include 200 luxury rental apartments, 30,000 square feet of retail and about 330,000 square feet of new office space.

I wonder exactly how tall the tower is going to be. Based on some of the less detailed renderings from Kilroy, it looks to be around 25 floors.

In non Hollywood news, the Vermont/Wilshire towers this afternoon. The west tower is now up to the 15th floor.
