I can provide some perspective. I first visited LA in 1991. Visited again in 2001. Spent a week there this January.

A LOT has changed since 1991.

Seven-Story Mixed-User Headed to Northeast South Park



Quote:
Say goodbye to the parking lot on the northwest corner of Hill and Olympic in South Park, and hello to a new seven-story mixed-use building from the Hanover Company, designed by TCA Architects (who seem to have the mixed-use market cornered this month). Olympic + Hill will have 281 studio, one-, and two-bedroom apartments, plus three live/work units on the ground floor with direct street access, and two levels of subterranean parking. The ground floor will also have more than 15,000 square feet of flexibly-designed retail space, and a plaza at the corner to help make the area more attractive to pedestrians. The project is due to get underway in May and open late summer 2014, according to TCA project manager Frank Pasker, who said that building permit applications are in the works now.

Closer Look at DTLA's Streetcar-Adjacent Olympic/Hill Project



Quote:
The Olympic and Hill development, Hanover Company's proposed 281-unit mixed-use, just announced last week, is big news for this moribund stretch of northeast South Park. Renderings from TCA Architects show a dense development featuring 16,000 square feet of retail and more than 5,000 square feet of live/work loft space. Hanover is smart to get in early on this area as it's right on the route of the Downtown streetcar, which barring any unforeseen catastrophe, is happening.

US Bank Tower Sells For $367 Million



Still a weak price considering the cost of replacing that office space ($700 million+). The buyer got a really good deal!

New 100 Room Hotel Indigo Coming to Hollywood



Quote:
Following-up on last week's Pre-Development map hotel-a-palooza, we've been forwarded a rendering for the proposed 100-room hotel located on that wedge shaped dirt parking lot at Franklin Avenue and Highland Avenue. The Hollywood Boulevard-adjacent locale will be host to LA's first Hotel Indigo -- the boutique hotel chain from IHG that has been popping up all over the place, including California locations in San Diego, Del Mar and Santa Barbara.

Superfabulous Mega-Luxe Condos Coming To The Bev



Quote:
Good news for everyone who's grown tired of normal luxury: the far eastern end of Beverly Hills is getting a new development with "uncommonly oppulent" condos. 432 Oakhurst, under construction now, will have 34 two- and three-bedroom condos in its five stories, ranging from roughly 2,000 to 3,000 square feet. Prices start in the "mid $1 millions," and for that you get Miele and Sub-Zero in the kitchen, Hydro Systems tubs and Gessi fixtures in the bathroom, recessed lighting, open floor plans, "home pre-readiness for automatic window treatments," and designer-selected doors "aimed at exceeding the expectations of the most demanding U.S. and international buyers." Each unit comes with outdoor space, extra storage, and three parking spaces, while the building will have a concierge, common refreshment area, and high-speed elevators (for five stories?).

Here's the Newest Look For Huge Figueroa Street Overhaul






The stretch of Figueroa Street (and environs) between Seventh Street and Exposition Park has been seeing an enormous amount of action lately, so thank heavens LADOT's MyFigueroa project, which will majorly transform the street itself, is looking healthy following the setbacks of the past few years. MyFig completely redesigns the street to make it more friendly to bikers, pedestrians, and transit riders (in addition to, of course and as always, motorists). LADOT has just released new renderings, plans, and website for the project, and plans to hold a community meeting on April 9. MyFig will still feature "people-focused streetscape elements like pedestrian-oriented signage, transit platforms for boarding buses, and a three-mile bikeway complete with bike signaling ... high-visibility crosswalks, widened sidewalks, transit platforms, more street trees and landscaping, better signalization and signage, and public art," according to a press release. More generally, "the project will physically connect South L.A. and Downtown."

Streetsblog breaks down the details: "North of exposition the road design calls for five mixed use travel lanes. South of exposition it's down to four mixed use lanes and a bus only lane. The bus only lane provides a buffer of sorts for bike traffic heading south." The adjacent stretch of Eleventh Street (from Fig to Broadway) will also be reconfigured--it'll lose one of its two westbound traffic lanes and get a one-way westbound bike lane; its northern sidewalk will be expanded. Part of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard on the south end of the project will get repaired paving and more lighting and street trees.

Melendrez Design Partners is leading the design work on MyFig. LADOT is still doing a traffic analysis, but construction is supposed to start in January 2014 and wrap up by the end of that year.

Hollywood's Huge Capitol Records Towers Get First Big Approval



Quote:
The City Planning Commission's meeting on the huge Millennium Hollywood project has finally ended after approximately a million hours and: the twin tower plan passed unanimously (and appeals were denied), according to a rep. The very controversial plan would put two very tall towers on parking lots surrounding the Capitol Records Building (on both sides of Vine, just north of Hollywood Boulevard)--the catch is that developers Millennium Partners and Argent Ventures have only released "conceptual" plans that hypothesize towers of 585 and 485 feet respectively; they'd hold up to 492 residential units, 200 hotel rooms, office space, restaurants, a sports club, and retail, plus 2,000 parking spaces split above- and below-ground. But the "conceptual" part means they're asking for approval to build up to those heights and sizes--it's totally unclear what they actually will build (and they haven't released anyything but conceptual architectural renderings either; Gary Handel Architects and Roschen Van Cleve Architects are handling design).

Projects like this or Figueroa st. upgrade are something, what LA really needs. I found LA look like huge village, compared to NYC or Boston. There should be bigger areas of midrise buildings.

Fairfax Theatre Apartments Finally Almost Approved



Quote:
The City Council's Planning and Land Use Management committee gave its final approval this week for the mixed-use development planned to take the place of the old Fairfax Theatre on the corner of Fairfax and Beverly. The Howard Laks-designed project will keep the building's art deco facade, while demolishing the rest to make way for a *five-story, 71-apartment development with a rooftop pool plus and recreation center and groundfloor retail space. The project ran into trouble after it was proposed from preservationists who wanted to protect the lovely old theater. As part of the conditions for approving the project, the developer will not only maintain the original facade, but will also have to rehab the marquee and keep the terrazzo floor at the entrance.
