Those are pretty sweet. Here's the Century from last Monday. Starting to make it's presence known. Jacaranda trees in full bloom.

Universal Studios Backlot is on fire! Hope they rebuild the burnt sets (there was a similar fire in 1990, and they rebuilt those)

I wish The Century was built right smack in the middle of downtown. OR I wish Century City had a subway stop.

I wish The Century was built on Wilshire next to those other towers with that weird similar design (The Californian, The Diplomat, The Remington, The Somerset). The design of The Century is very 1989.

Thank you for saying so. I have always wondered myself. I finally had time, pictures, and know-how to put it together.

William Morris Building

This one is already under construction in Beverly Hills:

From CurbedLA:
http://la.curbed.com/archives/2008/0...to_th.php#more

Say Hello to the William Morris Building Again
Thursday, June 19, 2008, by Dakota




A construction shot of the forthcoming William Morris building in Beverly Hills was featured earlier this week; here's the rendering. It's not a new rendering, but perhaps you forgot what the building looked like. It is expected to be done by the end of 2009 or spring 2010. This is the view from Beverly Drive and may we suggest re-visiting that LA Times article on the talent agencies' competitive architectural nature. [Image via Gensler]

Just drove through the valley and noticed that the 15 story office tower in Burbank is topped out, there is a 7 story office job that looks to be topped out in Glendale along the 138 and behind that, I think it is the Embassy Suites or something may be topped out, too. I will up load the snap of the Burbank one soon.

Considerably skinny, but very beautiful nonetheless.

Living walls are gorgeous.

Are there many examples in the world? They're becoming the rage up here in the PacNW

There has been activity on the Nouvel tower site, but it appears to be soil sampling (I'm guessing on this) and that was last week. Still, it is more than what has been going on with it the last several months. Alas, it is still a weed-covered parcel.

From la.curbed.com :

City Paying To Finish CIM's Midtown Crossing Project



Friday, June 20, 2008, by Dakota

Our Curbed tipster was absolutely correct: Just after yesterday's mention of the slow-to-completion CIM Midtown Crossing project, that mixed-use development at Pico and San Vicente, comes a Los Angeles Times story that looks at how the city is pumping money into the project to get it completed. Via the paper: "To complete Midtown Crossing, Villaraigosa's appointees at the Community Redevelopment Agency recently recommended that the City Council increase the size of the project's subsidy from $5 million to $14.3 million." And there's more: City officials are trying to help establish the area as a sign district-with "supergraphics"--to drum up money (a similar sign district has been suggested in Koreatown). So you may be getting ugly signage, area residents. But the paper paints a cozy relationship between CIM and the city: Two city pension boards are putting city employee retirement dollars in to CIM funds; plus, CIM has received "financial help with projects in at least three other neighborhoods," according to the Times
