^Agree. Retail may not be ideal on every street, but it sure is on Olympic.



Does anyone know anything about these two projects?

Found them on www.slabarch.com , however there is no information about the status.

Harvard - 94 Units - residential



Hobart - 40 Units - residential

I didn't realize the scale of development outside of Downtown.

Car-oriented developments like those pictured above are not going to get us anywhere.

I wish projects like those popped up in South Park. Those are nice.

I don't like the Harvard. I've grown so sick of this kind of architecture and you can see its already aging. Hobart isn't bad though.

Hollywood's Sunset + Vine Just Glassing Right Up

By Dakota
December 31, 2007

Jolly green giant! Following our October visit to check out construction, Sunset + Vine, CIM's 63-unit apartment building (at least that was the figure initially) on the corner of Sunset and Vine is just shooting up. Still waiting word on how much these units will rent for.

it'd be sooo cool to live in an ultra-sexy condo/apt with a view - until i take the elevator to street level to contend with an urbane parking lot around a chain donut shop or some other shitty reminder of reality in los angeles.

^I actually like whats going around that intersection. Sad that those one story buildings wont go away any time soon but the infill going on between sunset and hollywood along vine is a good start to getting away form the linear density that runs throughout L.A. and give that hood more of a "three dimensional" feel to it

Hotel Montage Beverly Hills

It is well under construction, but I just added this 7 story hotel to the first page.

From the website:

Montage Beverly Hills
Located in the Golden Triangle of Southern California's premiere neighborhood, Montage Beverly Hills will be the new centerpiece of Beverly Hills. The property is within steps of luxury retailers including Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Christian Dior, Harry Winston, Prada, and world-class dining on and around the famous Rodeo Dr. With lush, native California landscaping and urban gardens, Montage is reintroducing classic Hollywood glamour to this metropolitan location.

Opening Fall 2008, Montage Beverly Hills will offer residential real estate, premiere dining, a luxurious spa, meeting space, street-level retail boutiques, expansive public colonnades and gardens connecting Beverly and Canon Drives, and a city-owned underground public parking facility with more than 1172 spaces.

Those projects Rich and I have had an eye on. I don't have any details about them. but the Hobart project site is up for sale now. I don't think either have entitlements yet.

So are you complaining (or being saracastic) about the aesthetics or the lack of investment? Or since its Bev Hills, are you unhappy about too much investment?

Boy, by looking at one of those quotes you used, some people really must not like innovative and ambitious ideas or theories. People like that are because they think it is uneconomical, stupid, or a waste of time; but in a world can't advance without theories.
