Wow... Downtown Los Angeles sure changed alot since I left Los Angeles metro area in 2002. I don't really remember if I see any tower cranes around downtown Los Angeles while I was living there... Good for LA!

I lived in LA metro area from 1994 to 2002. I lived in Santa Clarita from 1987 to 1989. (I was too little to pay attention to the rise of LA skyline).

I'm trying to get more info. the site is behind the Salvation army building, but i believe its part of the LA live development, but it's going to be one of, if not the last phase. On the LA live overall plan model, and rendering it is there.

Crazy, we are getting that building - they're prepping the site as we speak.

Westside, you should probably credit those renders to the proper person over at SSP.
