I'm happy enough they eschew the faux-Tuscany/Mediterranean look that has been all the rage as of late. Not only do they do that, they are size-appropriate for their environs and are built urban enough (subterranean parking, little to no setback, etc).

If increased Korean immigration to LA manifests itself in the form of these developments, I say the more the merrier!

WOW that's part of ELAC right?! That's right in my neck of the woods (Monterey Park)! It looks really good (esp. compared to the way the campus used to look).

Actually I think this would be a good scale to build at thoughout Los Angeles. There is actaully a lot of infill going on in the San Fernando at about this same scale and it's all pretty visually appealing for the most part.

The Gatsby Hollywood on Wilcox just south of fountain. I think I would like it more if this were Portland or Seattle but at least it is high density and looks like good solid contstruction:

^ It's supposed to be Craftsman, a style common in Hollywood.

Yes, there are a lot of Craftsman homes scattered throughout Hollywood but something about this development screams Pacific NW to me. Perhaps it is the color choice. Most Craftsman homes in Hollywood are very bold colors.

I agree with dktshb, it looks very Pacific Northwest. Helluva lot better than the usual crap stucco boxes in the area.

I'm not saying it doesn't look Pacific Northwestern. I'm saying Craftsman is a common style in Hollywood and those colors are actually pretty common among Craftsman buildings.

They actually look very much like some of the newer developments out in Rancho Cucamonga and Ontario.

Here's Mission Meridian Village in South Pasadena, right next to the Gold Line Mission Station. This is the real way to do Craftsman...

Why do they call them "detached" when it looks like they are all stuck together?

They're talking about after the earthquake. Then they're detached.

There are elements of Craftsman here, but, uh... eeew.

They didn't even use the right kind of stonework; it should be river rock, not the kind of bricks they use for a 1950s retro-remodel. Hehe but maybe they used the examples provided by some of those neighborhoods where you do see Craftsman houses remodeled in a bad way.

Construction, and general development is so slow now that curbed LA has a post on the new mausoleum going up at Hollywood Forever

HOLLYWOOD: Taking a break from the condo construction talk, here's a look at the new under-construction mausoleum at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. According to Yogu Kain, Chief Financial Officer at Forever Cemeteries, the continual demand for crypts has prompted the construction of this building, which is located next to the main chapel. It'll be finished in August 2010 and has permanent parking for 5,500 people. Buy now or be priced out forever.

This is really exciting if it is true! Can anyone confirm this?

ConstructionPhotoDocs.com will be documenting a large transit oriented development near downtown Los Angeles called MacArthur Park Apartments; a development by the nationally recognized affordable housing developer McCormack Baron Salazar. The 1st phase covers 22 months consisting of 90 family apartment units and 233 subterranean parking spaces that will be shared with the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA). The project includes 15,000 square feet of ground floor retail sitting on 1.62 acres of total land.

The project site consists of 10 separate buildings built over 3 levels of underground parking. Also being photo documented is the Westlake/MacArthur Park red line Metro Rail Line subway tunnel which the parking and apartment buildings sit atop of.

New public infrastructure such as sidewalks, curbs and gutters, street trees and underground utilities will all be documented. MacArthur Park Apartments is meant to serve as a catalyst to spur development within the local Community Redevelopment Agency adopted Project Area. MacArthur Park Apartments will have a positive economic impact on the neighborhood in the short and long term. The ground breaking for the development is Monday April 12, 2010, 10:00am -11:30 am at 7th & Alvarado Streets.

ConstructionPhotoDocs.com currently has several other projects under contract including non-profit housing agencies such as WORKS and Los Angeles Housing Partnership.

Sounds exciting; this is a neighborhood that is really prime for redevelopment and could use new housing stock.

Why does the MTA need parking there? for the Metro? I would think that parking spaces make sense in the outer suburbs but not so much in town. Or maybe for the proposed theater(s) in the area?
