Posted this in the DTLA thread as well. Everyone should read this, it gives a great overview as to why housing is so expensive in LA.

Aside from writing our representatives, does anyone have any suggestions as to how to push for changes that address the issues outlined in this post? Does anyone know to what degree they are being addressed through the zoning re-write?

I'd like to see just one of these KTown towers actually start construction. So much potential here, but so far in the highrise game, we haven't seen much action. Love the location of this one, though.

one of the k-town towers is finishing up right now: 3033 Wilshire Boulevard.

but yeah, agree that it's mostly the low/midrise that's getting built. over the next 3-4 years though, assuming demand carries on, k-town should be significantly transformed.

Hi everyone, I have a few photos that I took over the past two weekends that I forgot to share. Mostly focused on Hollywood and Koreatown projects, and most of them are smaller in scale.

Hollywood projects:

4807-4811 Oakwood Avenue - 7/14/2017 by Juan Gomez, on Flickr

4814 Oakwood Avenue - 7/14/2017 by Juan Gomez, on Flickr

The single family residence that was previously on this lot was cleared last year. So far no signs of activity.
4826 Oakwood Avenue - 7/14/2017 by Juan Gomez, on Flickr

Four single family residences were cleared from this site months ago. No activity has occurred since.

4833-4847 Oakwood Avenue #2 - 7/14/2017 by Juan Gomez, on Flickr

Trio of developments, with the middle one being completed less than a year ago. Looking forward to seeing this when all are completed.

5016-5036 Rosewood Avenue #2 - 7/14/2017 by Juan Gomez, on Flickr

A few month ago, all of the houses on this stretch of Wilton, between Maplewood and Clinton, have been fenced off. I recall reading on Curbed of a major development proposed here, but not sure if that's still moving forward.

Sometimes, due to rent control rules, a developer has to wait 5 years to develop a previously rent controlled property to avoid rent control on the new development so that may be a reason why some lots just sit fenced for years

Thanks for the update Juan. I was curious about those projects over on Oakwood and Rosewood.

On Las Palmas the complex proposed to replace the 2 story building in between the two new ones was rejected by the planning commission Thursday according to the LA tenants Union's twitter. It's unfortunate because that was a really well designed project with less than 1 parking space per unit, ground floor retail and good density (70 units). It was rejected because the project was replacing 15 rent controlled units and include only 7 low income units and existing tenants did not have the right of return. The landlord was also accused of mistreating tenants. Councilman O'Farrell supported its rejection too. Hopefully the project can still go forward if the developer makes 15 units affordable and gives tenants the right of return.

Not really development related, but the Getty made a huge acquistion. In addition to the acquistion of arguably the best Parmigianino outside Italy which just passed the British export ban limit last month, they just announced a huge cache of drawing (16 total) that include Michaelangelo, Parmigianino, Del Sarto, Rubens, Goya, Degas and another Watteau painting (though not as great as the one they bought a few years ago). Estimated worth? Likely over $100 million as the museum director says it’s their biggest financial acquisiton yet. 4 drawings are still vulnerable to the export ban. Hopefully, it’s none of the names I’ve mentioned.
