^Wow that's good news! But I thought they couldn't get funding for it. Or at least I thought I read that a while back. Are they gonna start construction right after the demolition is complete?

I like the design for the new Ritz Carlton and JW Marriot. It is also good to see Los Angeles is increasing the density around the Downtown area. My favorite city in the US.

I was shopping in the fashion district and saw this building. It shocked me b/c I am so used to seeing it dirty and it's bright all of a sudden. Its getting a very nice cleansing and the windows are being replaced.

There is a whole lotta shit opening up down there lately, I love it

Thats good news. Hopefully (and I am very confident) the rest of Downtown L.A. will go the same transformation as some areas did so already.

Here are a couple of shots from Little Tokyo earlier this morning:

Block 8

Bird's eye from the top floor of the New Otani. Saturday morning there were two guys in 3 piece suits in the middle of the parking lot flying a remote control plane with a mounted camera. Could they be getting marketing materials ready for a taller tower on that lot???




Linda Lea/ImaginAsian Center

Moving slowly, but moving forward. You can see footings being put in, and some concrete has been poured at the front of the property (just out of frame).

Construction Update - May 6, 2007

717 Flower






Hanover Tower



Glass inside the balconies




Evo






Luma

Putting on the finishing touches. Should be moved to "completed" within the month.




LAPD Headquarters






LA Live



Looking across Olympic, with the Club Nokia/office building in the foreground on the left.



ESPN/ESPN Zone building



Prepping for cladding already



Finally the Nokia Theater (please don't mind the horrible stitch job)




No movement on the Ritz Carlton hotel tower or Glass Tower. I didn't get a chance to look in the Concerto pit, but I assume there's no movement there as well.

Beautiful. I guess Hanover is on its last floor?

Next time, could you take a few shots of the new sidewalk and retail at Luma?

They're framing the floor of 26 right now at Hanover (you can see it partially framed in that picture). Then there's the ceiling and the "hat".

The retail spaces at Luma still need a lot of work, which is why I didn't take any pictures. They still need to install a lot of glass. As soon as it looks more complete, I'll snap some close-ups.

The renders show billboards on the side walls, so hopefully yes.

Hey Colemonkee..I'm going to use your SSP rundown on the front page here. It's much more organized than this version. I'll send you a royalty check in the morning.

I see everything is moving along nicely so far. Can't wait for the next segment of Highrises to break ground in the coming weeks... Way to go L.A.....

Ha! You're welcome to use it, and no royalty checks needed. You'll just need to update it fairly regularly, but that should be a lot easier than the original buildout.

So here are three new projects we learned about from the quarterly update from the LA Downtown News.

1) 751 S. Spring Street - 32 Stories
2) Witmer Tower - 1027 Wilshire - 40 Stories
3) 11th and Olive - 62 Stories
