I guess the new LAPD Headquarters is trying to envoke Caltrans #7 in terms of style. I mean Caltrans is a HUGE building. But I guess we'll see when it's finished.

Btw..which towers are expected to start constuction this year?

**I found out that Astani will start construction on the 30th of January.**

Threehundred is right. Wilshire Blvd is quite unusually dense:

You have no idea.

This is Wilshire..from it's start at One Wilshire in downtown to 100 Wilshire in Santa Monica. Enjoy. These pictures are a bit old. About 2 or 3 years old.

Downtown L.A. (Wilshire boulevard starts at One Wilshire, the building with the "shire" of the "One Wilshire" name sign visible)






Westlake District


Macarthur Park




Wilshire Center / Koreatown



Wilshire Vermont Red Line Station, now with a huge 9 story mixed use building U/C over it


Equitable Plaza, with an asian mall being u/c in the back







Hancock Park (neighborhood)






Miracle Mile





Hancock Park w/ the La Brea Tar Pits and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art







Beverly Hills City










Los Angeles Country Club




Westwood












Sawtelle / VA Medical Center




Brentwood








Santa Monica City







And the western end of Wilshire, just short of the beach:

Nice thread, but seriously threehundred, you need to give people credit when you post their work.

Yeah, but its the same sort of thing as quoting someone in a written work. If I had put work into something like that, I would hope that I would at least be given credit if someone copied me.

The future subway map was also done by J-Church of SSP

Excellent work to all those involved with this thread. I meant "everyone" Just for the record.

The Hollywood/Orange is that going to be like Hollywood/Highland?

I really don't like the Herald Examiner's design. Makes you wonder like what happen to it.

It seems like L.A. was built for car. There are so many cars and highways are really wide.

Los Angeles was built for cars, but it is starting to show a lot of signs that it is trying to seperate itself from it's old car culture and stereotypes. But there are still areas that are car orientated.

If dt had all the buildings the beaches of LA have, all the buildings on Wilshire Blvd, Hollywood, Burbank, Glendale, San Fernanado Valley, and other smaller cities, dt could easily exceed the 10 freeway. What I mean that all of South Park would have buildings extendoing all the way up to like 20 St. LA does have a lot of buildings, but very very spread out.
