I have honestly given up on Millennium Hollywood breaking ground, but if it did... it would be fucking sick.

No doubt. This proposal has been dead for so long I can't even remember if they have approvals or not and what the findings were on the earthquake fault studies. Also likely to be Nimby lawsuits needing to be settled.

That said, the area around the Capitol Records building has come a long way of late with the Argyle Tower set to open, the new Kimpton hotel across the street, and even the Eastown garbage down the block.

I think that Eastown Phase II is actually shaping up to be a pretty interesting facade with a better than expected streetwall presence.

Would Santa Monica Blvd be able to support a subway train line? Say from Union Station, north to Chinatown/Gold Line, Dodger Stadium then head west to Echo Park, Vermont/Santa Monica red line and continue west towards Hollywood Forever cemetery, Fairfax, La Cienega, and finally in West Hollywood’s Pacific Design Center linking with the future expo/pink line... then Beverley Gardens Park, Connecting to Century City purple line and continue west on more few stops before reaching Santa Monica Beach?

Yes as far as WeHo, but then it should probably been down La Cienega to Wilshire and Expo. Otherwise, it overlaps too much with the purple line.

Driving to work today, there were 15-20 double-trailer soil hauling trucks parked along Pico Blvd, between La Cienega and Robertson. Anyone know of any major projects getting ready for excavation in the immediate area? That's a lot of trucks to be parked in that area for no reason.

Here are the two proposed projects closest to that stretch of Pico:

Thank you, ChelseaFC! The senior housing project is the old surface lot, which has been fenced off, but I haven't seen drilling rigs there, so wouldn't think it would be ready for that level of excavation. I rarely go down that stretch of Robertson where the hotel is going, but will check that out and see if that's the case. Now, if they could only get rid of the CVS that's on the corner of La Cienega and Pico...

The first page needs an update. A lot of projects are either: completed, revised, or cancelled.

None for the west side, even though I live there, cause frankly I don't really care all that much.

This new construction on Ventura, in Encino, just wrapped up.

There's been a small spate of these mixed users around the area, but this one is far and away the most handsome of them all. Nice massing, and great attention to detail on the facade (rare to see faux brick in LA, let alone one where they apply the tiles so well.)
