I have a question. It may seem rather stupid to some but I figure there aren't stupid questions, just the people who ask them.
Anyway, I was wondering if this extremely odd colder than cold weather we've been having in Southern California might have any adverse affects on construction? Or, are there actions normally taken when constructing in colder climates that aren't normally taken in L.A.?

Doesn't the advertisement of the PanAmerican Lofts obstruct the view of the residents?

We can add another 5 star hotel to Downtown LA!! The Mandrian is now part of the Grand Ave project..

Grand Avenue Project Gets Hotel

By DANIEL MILLER
Los Angeles Business Journal Staff

A key element of the Grand Avenue redevelopment project was secured Thursday when developer Related Cos. announced it will bring a five-star hotel to the $1.8 billion mixed-use project.

The Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group has agreed to build a 275-room Mandarin Oriental hotel that is scheduled to open in summer 2010. It would occupy the first 20 floors of a 48-story, Frank Gehry-designed tower that would be topped by condominiums.

Bill Witte, president of Related of California, said that the hotel is important to the development adjacent to the Walt Disney Concert Hall, because it will be a 24-hour destination.

“It will include a number of restaurants, a pool bar and terrace that will be available to the larger public,” said Witte. Plans are to begin demolition of an existing parking lot at the hotel site this fall.

The announcement appears to indicate that Related is making progress in moving forward with the Grand Avenue project. It also comes just a month before the company will make its case in front of the City Council for a $40 million subsidy in the form of a rebate on the city’s parking and hotel bed taxes.

“We felt it was important to let them know in advance of what they were getting if they were to approve the request,” Witte said.

The Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group has properties at Time Warner Center in N.Y. and other high-end locations in Miami, San Francisco and Washington D.C.

This is huge news. Downtown is going to be thriving in 3 short years. Downtown has a nice array of hotels: The Standard, The Ritz, Wilshire Grand, and now a Mandarin Oriental.

Photo Update - January 27, 2007

Walked in the anti-war protest to grab some pics and thought I'd get some construction updates to. Kind of a shitty day, but what the hell. I started in the historic district and made my way toward South Park.


Rowan Lofts

The view from 5th Street:



Base at the corner of 5th and Spring.



The Spring Street side. You can see where they've cleaned the facade.




Title Guarantee






Eastern Columian





People were definitely doing walk-thrus on Saturday. A peek inside the lobby.




Market Lofts

Right in the middle of the march. Check out the Bus Rider's Union getting into the act...




Luma

From 9th Street.



The new South Park skyline...



Roof's done, topout complete.




Evo

Working on the 7th floor.




SBC Center




Hanover Tower



They've conveniently numbered the floors for us skyscraper geeks.




LA Live

ESPN Studios/ESPN Zone building, going up very quickly. All this steel went up this week.



Work is commencing in earnest on the roof of Nokia Theater.

Considering that you live half a world away and have no idea how important each and every building under construction/conversion is to downtown LA, then I would have to say yes..it is something speical.
