As I started to step down back onto the ground I lost my footing and split my jeans from below my crotch almost to my left back pocket, good grief either way good to see progress.
You did all of this at 4 in the morning?

cool...where did you get the render? it almost looks as if the building is really set back from the street with huge sidewalks...that'd be awesome! they sure are planning on a very pedestrian friendly neighborhood. i hope.

Photo Update - July 21, 2007

Today was a nice day for a stroll with the camera. Lots of work going on.


Evo
Working on 16, so 7 floors left.




Herald Examiner
The old press building is almost gone.




LA Live
The new Figueroa corridor starting to take shape.



Nokia Theater getting closer to completion. According to their schedule, we only have three more months til it opens.



ESPN Building looking across Chick Hearn Ct. from Staples Center.



Looking across Nokia Plaza, there appears to be a large body of water. Lake Nokia, perhaps?



Club Nokia building from Olympic. They've completed the first floor of the western half of the buiding, so this will look like the renders. Fireproofing has already started on the eastern half.



Unfortunately I couldn't get any shots of the Ritz Tower. The only vantage points were teaming with construction crews and heavy machinery, and it really wasn't safe.


Hanover Tower



Work has started on the "fin".






Concerto
They poured the foundation for the crane. That's about all the progress I could see.




717 Flower
Starting to frame the first floor.



To give an idea of scale.




Mandel Lofts
Mandel Lofts gets a shiny new sign and some chandeliers at the entrance. There are also "For Lease" signs up on the building. Hopefully they get people moving in soon.




Finally, does anyone know what's up with this project? I found this project board on the east side of Olive, halfway between Olympic and 11th. I thought this was supposed to go in the surface lot at the corner of Olympic and Olive? The board calls for a March 2008 completion, which ain't gonna happen.

One's their done with the foundation, the floor start to pile up real quick. Can't wait how this project would look like in 6 months. Hopefully it surpasses the 15 floor by then. Also hoping by then Concerto should be on the single and playing catch up.....

The Flugelmann Tower

I've never heard of this, and not sure if it is a serious project... anyone have any additional information???



The Flugelmann Tower
Los Angles, California

Located on Bunker Hill at Third and Hope, this mixed use tower consists of a 250 suite hotel, 100 condominium residences and 1,000,000 sf of office space. At the base is an additional 75,000 sf of retail and user amenities.

The tower, at 82 stories, would be the tallest west of Chicago . Its geometry has been conceived to resist all lateral forces. Materials are limestone, metal, and glass. Atrium sky lobbies occur at the 27 th and 54 th floor, and on the 82 nd floor is Flugelmann's Gallery/Bar (you can see China on a clear day!).

What's more interesting is that building to the right of the Gas Company Tower and that La Grande Arche-looking thing

The thing to the right of the GCT was an 80's or 90's proposal for the Biltmore Addition.

Oh, happy days. Lovely renderings from a loyal reader:

"Here are renderings of the LA Central development that is going to the City Planning Commission today.... large mixed-use project...across the street from the Staples Center....860 condo units, 222 hotel rooms (a fancy schmancy boutique hotelier), sit-down and quick serve restaurants galore, several large and small retail spaces (with high hopes for a Mac store) and a supermarket (rhymes with schmole schoods). [ED: WHOLE FOODS!] It also has two paseos to chop up the large block and a big plaza with some cool landscape features along Figueroa. The first person to complain that it isn't pedestrian-oriented can eat it.

Yeah, go eat it complainers! More fabulous picture love after the jump...
LA Central (from Curbed LA):

Nice I love it, and welcome it. Many ppl are commenting on it being setback from Figueroa too much but u have to realize the retail base will be around as tall as the ESPN building which is pretty tall for that area so it should give Fig that "wall". I love the 3rd rendering showing all the area except 717 flower, Park tower, 8hope, Hope lofts, Glass Tower, Kurtsman, & South Park Tower, either way What building is that in the 3rd rendering to the right of the 54 story Tower? new development? Also isnt there suppose to be a 60 story tower next to Jardin? & speking of Jardin why is the Figueroa-side Tower sooo squat (downsizing)? if so that will defintely frame the Figueroa stretch. Now only if someone could buy the Car Wash lot, the Holiday Inn & adjacent lots, & the one west of EVO then we will truly see a nice dense South Park, LA Live district.

YOO I love these renderings ssOOOOOOOO much, cant stop looking at them!
the 2nd rendering looks real "new yorkish" to me im glad to see that they are carrying on the residential street theme down Flower

Hmmm...I wonder if Staples will get a mild facelift with lights and crap?

I noticed that most of the highrises and skyscrapers in LA (maybe all of them) are flat at the topmost level for their HeliPad. Is it required for the helipad to be always at the topmost level or can they be at the ground or any part of the building?
