What an amazing amount of projects! Downtown L.A. will be so cool in a couple of years.

Overhere in the Netherlands they say: 'when you visited L.A. don't go to downtown, it's boring'. But i've visited L.A. last summer and i really liked downtown, especially the mid-day concerts at pershing square

^ That's better than no activity at all. I still have no idea what's the final design?

Southeast corner from Wilshire:



They've also started to install the glass storefronts for the ground level retail:





Also, last week I noticed they dismantled the construction crane onsite, so that means they've topped out the steel frame construction. It should be all down-hill from here. The construction sign says delivery in early 2007. Here's the project website:

Equitable City Center - 6th & Alexandria behind the Equitable Plaza Tower

Construction has been moving steadily on this project. Looks like they've finished the steel work and started constructing the facades.



Corner of 6th & Alexandria


Corner of 6th & Mariposa



3670 Wilshire Blvd Tower(s)

This lot has been vacant for a while. Even though I haven't seen any equipment onsite, it looks like some preliminary grading has been started.






Wilshire Center apartments - directly across the street from the 3670 Wilshire Blvd site

This site had lots of construction activity today. Looks like they're up to ground level.












Serrano Palace Tower (8 stories) - Serrano & 7th St - one block southeast of the 3670 Wilshire Blvd project

I've been amazed how quickly this tower has gone up. I think they only started construction in Feb/Mar of this year.






4-5 Story Apt Complex - one block east of the Serrano Palace Tower on Oxford & 7th






Wilshire Solair - NE Corner of Wilshire & Western

They are well underway on this massive development.




The Mercury conversion - SW Corner of Wilshire & Western

I haven't seen much progress on the retail component of this project in the last couple of months.




Courtyard MaDang - Just north of the NW Corner of Wilshire & Western

Looks like most of the steel framing is complete. Here are renderings from the website (www.courtyardmadang.com)








Views from across the Solair construction site




That's all! hope you enjoyed. I'll be posting my construction photos from the downtown tour tomorrow.

Good that we're getting some Wilshire Blvd pics.

Great! A new thread, just before the new year. Some corrections for the first post:

The Chapman Lofts, Brockman Building and Rosslyn Lofts are all under construction (conversion), not proposed. I walked through the Rosslyn today. There are some great units for any of you looking for rentals in the OBD. They won't be ready for a while, but when they're done, there are two corner units with great layouts and lots of room.

Before I start listing everything, I just wanted to say that the historic core (particularly the northern end) has become a great new neighborhood. I was blown away! So many new retail places have opened and people were out walking their dogs, taking pictures, window shopping - I've never seen it like this.

There are countless conversions underway. I feel like I'm just scraping the surface here. If I confused something, please let me know! and again - the lighting is terrible.

Pan American Lofts

I'm not sure how I feel about the new street facade. It's not stucco.









Douglas Building Lofts

Missing retail tenants.







Rowan Building Lofts

Other than the scaffolding - not much noticeable progress.




El Dorado Lofts

My personal favorite. I visited this building during the downtown loft openhouse earlier this summer and the lobby is still gutted.








4th Street Retail just east of Main Street

All of these places are on the same block. So many and more on the way!

You can't really tell, but there's a large art gallery in this corner unit:


Orange22 Design Lab - modern furniture






Warung Cafe - opening soon?


Blends - shoe store


Restaurant on the corner of 4th/Main



Rosslyn Hotel Lofts

This old hotel should be undergoing a conversion also. I didn't see any construction or scaffolding though. There's a cool art gallery open on the ground level.




NE Corner of 5th & Spring

Not sure which building this is, but it's being renovated.





Security Building Lofts - SE Corner of 5th & Spring

Grand Opening of Weeneez (http://www.weeneez.com/ - hotdog and chili restaurant), next to the Red Dot Bistro & Gallery






PE Lofts - 6th & Main

Beautiful building. A lot of work left to be done on the retail.





This building is right next to the PE Lofts on Main Street. Not sure which one it is, but it's bring renovated - probably into condos



City Lofts - http://www.cityloftsquare.com/home.htm

This is the back side of the building as seen from Main Street (front on Spring St). I think this project has been complete, but I took a picture b/c there are just so many loft projects in every direction. This is right across the street from the PE Lofts.




Cecil Hotel (recently renovated) - just down Main street from the PE Lofts

It's been restored and it's beautiful. New retail/restaurants have openend.






Santee Court Village - 7th & Los Angeles St

This redevelopment has been in the works for a while. Lots of new retail opening here with more on the way.







This building across Los Angeles Street is being restored.




NE Corner of 8th & Broadway

Not sure which building this is. Looks like a condo converstion.






OK. I told myself I wasn't going to bother with the South Park area developments b/c they've been covered so much, but I found myself here anyway!


Market Lofts

There's a tarp over the Hope street side now.



NW Corner of 9th & Flower (9th & Flower Condos - Meruelo Maddux Properties development)

I remember someone asking about this corner recently. There's definitely construction activity happening there now. I have to say I'm a little confused as to why they're bringing steel onsite already. Shouldn't they be digging out the underground parking?






Concerto - just across 9th Street




Hanover Tower

Starting to construct the facade on the lower levels.



Glass Tower

Construction sign posted at 11th & Grand, catty-corner from Elleven, Evo, etc.



SE Corner of 7th & Grand

I know this is a bigger profile project, but I can't remember the name. Someone help me...





That concludes the tour...phew! Hope you enjoyed. There are countless other renovation projects that I didn't get a chance to photograph. Maybe another day!

The Old Bank District/Historic Core is turning into a Soho style area. And I couldn't be happier.

Nice picts. I work at the area where the Warung Cafe is. That place has been closed for quite some time. Last time I check, it had been closed since July (I tried to eat there for my birthday).

Good to see the government is trying to make the tourist feel less taken aback when they finally see the skyline of LA, after all those picturing in their head.

Is the 'Equitable City Centre' development just a mall or is there any housing included as part of the project?
