This is separate from the main tall cluster right? I hope future projects if possible stretch the skyline out a bit, america's second city deserves more!

Not at all. This is the site.



If anything, it pushes the skyline a bit to the west.

I am starting to worry as not much news is coming out, I really hope that this won't be another dead skyscraper project from LA.

I think sprawl in LA has stopped (or drastically slowed down). We are starting to build up not out.

Keep in mind that DTLA has this tendency to change. And by change I mean DRAMATICALLY ALTER IT'S GEOGRAPHY. I'm glad DTLA looks the way it does NOW as opposed to the nuclear aftermath it resembeled during the 1960's and 1970's. Literally it looked like a bomb hit it.

1956


1959


1962


1964


1971


1959 (top) 1986 (bottom) Note the streetlamps



1965 (top) 1988 (bottom)



1967 (top) 1989 (bottom)

Oh, thanks for the correction guys. So it'll join the main cluster hm? That's pretty cool. It's hard to think of LA's skyline any different from how it currently is- the 310 meter tower is almost a centrepiece, completing the skyline, so it will be interesting to see how this changes things.

Yeah. It'll rise between these two buildings.

Figueroa @ Wilshire to the north (tall building looming behind the Wilshire Grand Hotel which will be destroyed).


Ernst & Young Plaza across the street to the south. You can barely see Wilshire Grand peeking in the corner.

Oh my gosh, ... OMG!!!! WOW WOW WOW WOW ...

Soup or Man, you are amazing ... I truly deeply much enjoyed watching these old pics of my most most most most fave city on this planet, the beautiful city of Los Angeles.

For those of you who don't know me, I have been travelling to many cities and places across Europe and also visit US and Canada from time to time, my fave cities in USA are Chicago and Los Angeles, and also NYC, but sure the number for me, is LA!

ONLY LA!

my best friend ever lives in LA and it is the only city that you can really feel free! be free, be beautiful and be happy even when you work hard! That city truly lives!

I can say that NYC "survives" but not "lives", but Los Angeles, has a soul, has a certain fun spirit that lives in and through all its citizens and I 've witnessed that many times being an outsider.

I love Los Angeles and its charm, even its super busy highways are charming! I shall not say: see Napels and die, but I shall say See Los Angeles and die!

Thank you so much for sharing these amazing pics and wow ... love these kind of pics and from a beautiful past. California may be bankrupt, but Los Angeles shall always live on and move on!

I know that.

Big hugs to all Los Angelesers!

p.s.: Los Angeles's skyline is truly one that is so unique nobody can copy!

As unique and pretty as Paris is, so is Los Angeles!

Unfortunately, sprawl in LA haven't been stopped yet... There are still many suburban developments in Orange, Riverside, and Ventura countries going on by now. Last time I heard that they're on recovery and few cities in Ventura country just approved few proposed huge developments (more than a couple thousands of new homes plus some new strip malls).

Those are in Orange, Riverside, and Ventura Counties. Not LA County. And even then a few of those cities are trying to improve their own downtowns. Downtown Riverside, the Platinum Triangle in Anaheim (the area between Honda Center and Angel Stadium) and a few other areas are starting to build upward. Not skyscrapers mind you but more high density.

But in LA, for the most part, sprawl has slowed down. Probably because there is no more room to grow out. Unlike other sprawly cities like Houston (which is almost exactly like Los Angeles in many many ways), LA has natural boundries (mountains, and the ocean). Aside from cities in the High Desert like Lancaster and Palmdale, sprawl has indeed dramatically slowed down.

But saying that sprawl has stopped in LA county itself isn't saying much. LA county has been mostly built up for a while. The surrounding counties are part and parcel of greater LA, and that's where one would expect sprawl...on edges of the metropolitan area. That having been said, the current recession has likely put the brakes on the pace of sprawl. But that's likely to be temporary.
