Mr Fullerton, It would be great to have some pix for our viewing pleasure. By the way isn't the new tower getting erected right next to the MGM Tower?

Here's what I have seen in the past day or so. The St. Regis is about half of its original height and a fence has gone up around the old Century Club. Also the new building on Ave of the Stars is just about complete. It looks like a 'promenade' of sorts is being finished up between said new building and the old school twin towers next door. Besides the crane at the old St. Regis, there is no new equipment in the area. The mall is pretty much done last I saw, but I'm excited to see whats in store for the area. I'm really glad that big hole in the ground is going to be used for something too. I remember walking by there a few months ago and thinking what a waste of land that was.

Also, I mentioned in my first post about atleast 4 pairs of matching towers in Century City. Driving through today, I noticed that there are atleast 6 pairs of matching towers.

I never really noticed about the half of dozen twin towers. I guess since there's really only one set that's visible from the 405. I shall check it out next time I take a drive on Santa Monica Blvd into CC. Also hopefully Santa Monica BL is finally completed, not too sure what they actually trying to develop. Oh well only time will tell, I hope!

so, theres a weekly farmer's market on constellation blvd every thursday. i didnt see this myself, but somebody in my office was telling me today that there were petitions out to save the farmer's market and move somewhere else within century city. i would imagine that this means that construction will begin soon on the the 2 47 floor towers.

On a side note, i like the idea of residential in CC, but i read an article earlier today that these condos are going to be a minumum of $1,000/sf. thats crazy!!!!! I would imagine anything going for this price will be atleast 1000sf, making the cheapest condos atleast one million, probably more.

So I have some bad news regarding Century City today. THere used to be a big hole just north of the Century City Hospital on Century Park East. There has been some construction equipment in there for a few months now. I just realized today that this whole was not only NOT going to be a new building, they were actually filling in the whole to make a surface parking lot. This seems absolutely absurd to me. I thought it may have been a park at first, but there were parking lights put up recently. What joke, a surface parking lot in the most dense business district in the city outside of downtown.

From the LA Times last week ...

On Avenue of the Stars, Related Cos. is tearing down the 32-story St. Regis Hotel, long deemed an eyesore, and will replace it with a 39-story tower containing 145 condominiums. Down the avenue at Constellation, JMB recently won city approval to build 483 condos in two 47-story towers and a 12-story loft building.

Across the street, Trammell Crow is preparing for Thursday's opening of 2000 Avenue of the Stars, which replaced the Shubert Theatre and ABC Entertainment complex. Among the tenants that have snapped up more than 60% of the 775,000-square-foot building are Creative Artists Agency, Fidelity Investments and Comerica Bank.

Meanwhile, Westfield, the Australia-based owner of the district's shopping center, has also proposed a $500-million project to raze two office buildings to create space for 260 high-end condos and additional shops.

... My uncle works in one of the high-rises there, and we've seen a few movies at the shopping center, but the area's possible fatal flaw is how clogged the streets (Santa Monica, Wilshire, Olympic) are in most time periods, relegating it to a neighborhood desitnation rather than a regional one. Extending the subway west from Wilshire/Western would be a start, but this could be a good idea in the wrong place.

The problem is with NIMBY's is that they cry traffic traffic traffic when something high dense is built and argue that their isn't sufficient transportation. But even when their seems to be sufficient transit options they still cry foul. Universal City comes to mind as well as the Grand Ave project.
