I see Trump building in Century City, not Downtown- i don't think it's "nice" enough for him yet.
If Trump builds a tower in LA it should be next to the Beverly Centre.

I would like to think there would be retail on the bottom floors. It actually wouldn't make sense not to in relation to Staples, Hanover, 7+Fig, and soon LA Live. South Park is going to be awesome in about 2 years.
