Wrong, in the San Gabriel Valley, it's pretty much all Asian and Hispanic even in the very high-end towns. Here, Asians greatly outnumber whites now.

But is the Century adding a new mark in the skyline? Considering how the St. Regis used to stand in its place at 38 (?) stories. I can't remember what the skyline looked like with the St. Regis.

This is taller

the whole reason they tore the SR down (vs. refurbing) was that it had terrible ceiling heights--too low for the sky hi prices they are charging to make the project profitable.

Keep in mind this is on the west side of Avenue of the Stars, and therefore looks comparable to the twins, which are on the east side and more distant.
Looks almost as tall as Nakatomi though... maybe even taller...

The Century

Update for September...10/1/2008

From www.webcor.com

SEPTEMBER 2008

"The Century is now at the 36th floor (out of 42) and the pre-cast components are being installed on the 28th floor with windows up to the 26th. Top out is expected in November.

The lush landscaping is about to get started with the replanting of the 250 or so trees removed from the original site and protected during construction. In addition, another 250 or so trees will be installed as part of the mature park-like design concept of the project."

Leafy Green Horror: Jean Nouvel Tower Shelved Indefinitely
Friday, October 17, 2008, by Neal Broverman

One of the first high-profile casualties of the economic collapse, Jean Nouvel's pretty green tower ain't happening, at least not in the immediate future. The Los Angeles Business Journal's Daniel Miller reports that SunCal—developer of the 45-story, 177-unit condo tower—released a statement saying, "We have been unable to obtain assurances of continued funding that would allow us to move forward with confidence at this point in time." The LABJ says the project has been shelved, but SunCal keeps the door open by saying they hope to restart the project as soon as financing is shored up. Earlier this month, SunCal gave out a not entirely reassuring-sounding statement on the project, claiming that it was still going forward. But some may be happy with the latest news—as seen in the comments in an earlier post, 10000 Santa Monica was seen by some as a pedestrian-killing "monster of a building that would house fifty or so billionaires."

Oh please! He's French! He didn't have what it takes to construct something like that here anyway.
Wouldn't have passed seismic code.
