Drove by the other day, looking fantastic. If the LA Convention Center was a tower, it would kind of look like this.

I'd say LA has a "small" boom going on.

I cant wait either myself... I am going to have a great time watching all of this construction sprouting out of the ground once they all start. When its actually all completed, there will be a nice impact on the skyline. The amount of cranes in LA will be dramatically increasing soon

Part of what I was trying to explain above (although I admit I didn't do the best job), was that if you look at the skyline at a different angle, you can see the spaces between most of the large buildings. This is due to the grid layout of the city, which is actually a trait of Spanish, and many European cities. Eventually with these new towers rising, these gaps will be filled in no matter what angle you see DTLA from (especially the view from the Hollywood sign), and I completely welcome this! It will look MUCH better!!

Looks like a lot of progress has happened in the last week. Can't wait to see the glass.
