Yeah, thats all industrial area southwest of Los Angeles downtown, with the Los Angeles River going through. Wilshire Center and Hollywood skylines are visible just beyond the Downtown Los Angeles skyline.

Yes, very interesting. LA should build a lot of 300'-500' buildings to fill in the height gap between the midrises and the skyscrapers. Very impressive still.

My dream is for all that industrial space to one day eventually become part of Downtown LA. Though that probably won't happen any time soon.

I'd love to see a giant park along the LA River there where it is now all industrial warehouse. Impressive photo nonetheless

^ Yes! i don't live in LA... I'm in San Diego. I know that the concrete lined LA River is to assist with flood protection and make the water exit the area faster, but if it were returned to a park-like environment.. perhaps with cafe's over looking the river... it might look quite nice and become a much more attractive area to visit. You think?

So much room for development! Thanks for the pic.

Or redevelopment. The area as a whole is pretty much developed.

Beautiful. I have never seen a photo of LA from that vantage point.
