It is relevant, because it's northwest of Downtown. You were not just speaking about Downtown, you were talking also West of Downtown.

Technically, NW is the same as W.

You read your OWN posts.

9900 Wilshire: Beverly Hills Weighs In On Richard Meier's Green Building

Wednesday, March 12, 2008, by Dakota



Blog Beverly Hills has the latest on 9900 Wilshire, the Richard Meier-designed, gold-Leeded green proposed condominium development between Santa Monica and Wilshire Blvds that is now before the Beverly Hills city council. In a clever fashion, the blog posts about the news in anticipation of the city council approving the project and doesn't guess locals will embrace the project: "Of course, for BH residents, the Candification [Candy & Candy is developer] of 9900 Wilshire means that City acreage which previously had been accessible to the general public will now be largely private grounds. ....Beverly Hills is and should continue to be a cosmopolitan, welcoming meeting-place. How appropriate then is it to have at our gateway a symbol of closure with its “For Residents Only” and “Do Not Enter” signs? Perhaps “the LA Country Club Towers” would be a better name for the 9900 project." Originally the project was slated to have 252 condominiums, and these renderings, which have been around for a while, may have changed

JDRCRASH
West - The Red Building is in West LA. So when you say “some stuff West of DT” you’re implying it’s closer to DT? People don’t think of N. Hollywood as west of DT.
Stuff - implies that there is more than one.
Being Built - NoHo project is a proposal and is currently not “being built”

See how your choice of words has made your post confusing?

You’re still leaning and I am saying this to help you.

Then the post is inevitable followed by several posts going back and forth where the other forumers try to correct you and you fight them.

Please slow down with your posts. If you’re answering a post, read it carefully before answering. If you don’t know something or not sure, don’t post anything. If someone else has the correct info, they’ll post it.

And don’t feel you need to exaggerate. Remember your original post said “A lot of stuff like that is being built… “

Please don’t respond to this, just take it in.
Hope this helps.

I'm getting really tired of all of these comments. It really isn't necessary and doesn't move the conversation along. There is no need to be snarky or nasty. Normally, I try to ignore all of this, but it really getting to point where this forum (and especially the Downtown LA forum) is about making fun of people and bickering, rather than Los Angeles development. I would appreciate it if we could stay on track and remain cordial.

Meh..you are just jealous because your milkshake doesn't bring all the boys to the yard.

But you're right. I'll be good.

I actually have a question: What is the status of Madam Taussad's (sp) wax museum on Hollywood and Orange? Is that under construction or prep work or what?

Well how about some Hollywood Updates:

Well there have been a few people asking for some Hollywood updates and since most LA forumers seem to be hanghing out in the City Compilations section I decided to post them here.  Not much:

The Madrone:









PaliHouse:





The Jefferson:


Old Hamburger Hamlet:


Madame Tussaud & H&H remodeling to look old industrial:
