Ritz Carlton
Things should start to get interesting now that they're above ground. This was taken from the corner of Olympic and Georgia. It appears to have a steel core (concrete cores usually rise before steel in LA), and they're already framing the third floor on the left. Check out the construction worker on the corner for size reference.

Supposedly they're gonna move at about 1 1/2 floors per week. Let's use this as a litmus test. They have two full floors constructed as of today. I'll hit up this same spot next weekend and see if they stick to their schedule. From Olympic and Georgia:



This must be some kind of lobby or ballroom space. Note the double-high ceiling, with a solid steel wall on the far left side to transfer the load.
