Spring's officially on it's way. That tree hasn't had leaves on it for months.





Foundation work on the Motor Pool building continues. I think they still have to go a bit further down.

The Motor Pool. The new lens doesn't fit between the chain links anymore.

This should give you an idea of the size of the setback on 2nd Street, which should be landscaped. I hope. Could be a nice little pocket park/dog run if done right.

A preview of the other style of glass, which will cover the rest of the unclad surface of the building, according to the renders. It looks very green and very transparent in person. Though it's hard to tell it's reflectivity because this area doesn't really get sky reflection.



Not sure if this opaque glass is just for the ground floor, or if it's going to go all the way up like this. :shrug:



Motor Pool. Digging looks done.

If the renderings are correct, this greener glass will form a band around the bluer glass on the top floor and where the construction elevator now sits.

I really like how this building completely changes depending on where you view it. It's like a different building on each side.

shouldnt the money be used to increase the tight salaries of the over worked and under paid police officers, especialy the ones assigned to deal with superb areas of East Los angels and Long Beech. and put more officers on the road to cut down on car vandalism and stabbings in the hood
