With all the lines coming together at an angle, I got slightly disoriented taking a picture of it The angle is quite prominent when driving/walking on Sunset.

Btw, now that I look at the old picture -- looks like they demolished the white building next to it. Never noticed that before.

Is the building in the first photo the new Technicolor headquarters?

Yes, it is. And they stayed rather faithful to the rendering, too:

Except for one thing: they are off by one palm on the Sunset side

Thanks, I feel welcomed

While I'm on a roll, here's a few more updates.

First, the lofts on Hawthorne across the Madrone (The Hawthorne Regency on the right, and a slightly newer The Hollywood Lofts on the left). Those were completed over a year ago, but I am not sure if they were ever mentioned here.



Second, "The Hollywood".



Finally, the Madrone update:

I should start consolidating the posts...

Anyway, Seventy-46 (has been leasing for a few months already):





The lounge on the ground level still hasn't opened, though.

The office building next door doesn't show any visible signs of progress. I think they cleaned it up, washed the windows, probably painted it. Anyone has any scoop on this one?



That's how they would like it to come out. I don't see any resemblance yet:



H&M on Hollywood Blvd opened a week-two ago (where the Hamlet used to be). The building doesn't look like it's 100% done yet, though:



Zara next door is still a ways off:



They are completely gutting the building (took a shot of the backside from the parking lot behind them. Couldn't get a clear shot, but this gives an idea of how extensive their work is)

this thread kind of died off. I had forgotten just about every project in hollywood except the major ones (6200, the W) and then BAM all these low rises pop up (had no idea the jefferson was even U/C!) . sweet update, vodila. hollywood is a boomtown of its own

ConstructionWatch: So Much Aqua Glass in Hollywood

By Dakota
April 25, 2008

As a follow-up to last week's discussion on that big new Hollywood development Columbia Square, let's check in with two under-construction projects in the area: A new office building rising in the 6000 block of Sunset Boulevard and old friend Sunset and Vine, the under-construction 59-unit apartment building that'll eventually have 7,000 square-feet of retail. That aqua rod is now boasting some side flaps---billboard holders? What are those things?

Awesome updates! I really like a lot of the developments in Hollywood! They have a good scale for not being a downtown, but still being a very active center of the city.

Strolled around Hollywood&Highland today. They were doing a remodel of the Orange side for a while now, so I decided to check it out. Gotta say, it's still a ghost town in there! Anyway, here's the (very-very-very scary looking) outcome. It strikes me as odd, though... it looks more as a set of a horror film rather than an entrance to a major shopping and entertainment center. Maybe it's temporary? Certainly took them a while to complete it...

Looking from the Orange side (western side):



Southwestern corner:



Looking onto Orange (Northeast corner):



Northwest corner:





One more thing -- another perspective of the Madame Tussauds complex:

Do you think it was made to look that way so it can be rented out for filming? There are a lot of "back alley" "industrial" "horror" scenes that could use this look.

^ Maybe it's meant to look a little "weathered" so it looks like it's been there for awhile instead of being all freakin' brand spankin' new? I actually like the look of it because it looks kind of gritty.

I like the look of it too, it has that old warehouse look, something you'd see in a rust-belt city or in the older industrial sections of London or something.

It just doesn't match the rest of the complex, IMO.

^ Going along the concept of having diversity in design and style in the same complex like the proposed BLVD6200 and even Rancho Cuchamonga's Victoria Gardens, I like how this section "doesn't match" the rest of the Hollywood/Highland complex. Again, it gives that side of the building a "weathered" look which makes the place feel more established.

In fact, this very same concept could have been applied to LA Live. We've been getting a bunch of complaints on this forum that LA Live looks TOO similar to Staples Center. Imagine the proposed REGAL cinema designed and built to look like an authentic classical theater? That's not impossible. Look at Downtown Chicago's public library - built in 1991.
