From the looks of the render, it probably is only retail.
This is the most complete photo update ever!

I think it's both retail and a few apartments.

Nice pics. Looks like LA Live added two more cranes; now it has 5, plus an addiotional one upcoming for the hotel. Luma seems to be on its last pair of floors.
Love the density here.

Weird how 3 little buildings (Elleven, Luma, and to a lesser extent (for now anyway) Evo) can drastically densify LA's skyline.

So true. It's probably due to the fact that Luma, Elleven, and Evo are much taller in proportion to their immediate neighbors.

The desing looks so much better. Is it the style of the renders, or did LA Live lose a lot of billboard advertiments?

I'm sure the billboards will be added on once built. Look at Hollywood and Highland. The place keeps getting billboards added on all the time.

Isn't Fig Central supposed to have electronic billboards also? Or is it Fig South?

It's the same tower as the one in the original rendering:

I'm hoping LA Live has electric billboards. I'm sure it will. Not too worried about that. I want it to be lively but not over saturated.

JR: Fig Central.

The letters on the eastside of the building spell NOKIA, maybe these will be iluminated as well.

The tower, being covered in glass, alone will brighten up the area. When you add Staples Center to it as well as LA Central and Fig South, there will be plenty of energy and excitement.

The Nokia Theater will be labeled "Nokia Theater" on the roof, similar to Staples Center.

Also, I photomerged most of these panos, so you'll notice some "stitching" here and there.

I just hit the highlights in South Park:

LA Live – they put up a new wooden construction fence around the project recently so it’s hard to get any shot of the site unless you’re 8 ft tall. There was a slight open area near Olympic & Fig where I grabbed this shot. I think this is going to be the opening to the Nokia Plaza from that corner, and it looks like they’re paving the ground-level:


Hanover Tower:






Luma – More windows going in:




Moving on to the City West photo update. I know I didn’t hit a couple of the big projects, but the area north of Wilshire is a less interesting walk, and it was getting cold outside.

1010 Wilshire – there is still some evidence of reconstruction going on in the windows up there:


Vero (Wilshire & Whitmer) – yeah, looking good!!




I like the contrast of the historic street lamps against the modern architecture:


Back side of Vero:


Wilshire Courtyard – these buildings are coming along nicely:


You can see the west elevation of 1010 Wilshire on the left side of this photo:


Visconti (3rd & Bixel) :






A panorama from 3rd & Bixel looking southeast. Please excuse the bad tilt:


This building is also located at 3rd & Bixel, catty-corner from Visconti. I think it’s an LAUSD High School:


Broadstone LA (1st & Beaudry) – Well underway now. This should be a nice-looking modern building once it’s finished:






LAUSD High School (#11) / Vista Hermosa – Under construction, located directly across Beaudry from the Broadstone site:


Orsini II (Fig & Cesar Chavez) – this site is HUGE!!




LAUSD High School #9 (further down Cesar Chavez) – I think this is the postmodern school:








Hope you guys enjoyed! Off to see Apocalypto!!
