Well Im thinking of something on a grander scale. Mib Wilshire is just a string of small towers. I would like to see clusters develop around korea town, and the beverly center-fairfax area, such as on the large strip malls and parking lots across from the grove.

First you think that CC is the CBD and then you see downtown with surprisingly much taller buildings, then you see BH/Wilshire and it is truly cool. Along with all the mountains in the background, what a beautiful city.

Take a picture next time you get the chance. I think i know what you are talking about.

L.A. just needs more density, other than that L.A.'s skyline is going in the right direction.

I would like to see a downtown hub in the Hollywood area. Most building tend to be quite low. This area needs to look more dense.

Do you recognize all of those icons on that mural? Just a quick glance I see Duke Ellington, Billie Holiday, Nat King Cole and Ella Fitzgerald. I think that sums up American music.

I've always pictured the talest building in LA being in Santa Monica, I think it is the perfect place for a 100 story residential tower.

This will only happen when Santa Monica becomes part of the City of Los Angeles. Remember if the OC when bankrupt, it could easily happen to SM as well.

Ew..no. The only place I could see a tall building would be Century City. 850 ft would be perfect.

I think anything over say, 7 or 8 stories would be too tall for Santa Monica. Santa Monica already has an very urban feel in quite a lot of the city. Density doesnt have to equal tall buildings. im sure some of you have been to Europe, most of the big cities there have no skyscrapers, yet almost all the major cities there are more dense than LA. What I think LA planners should do is set up codes so all new aparment complexes have atleast 4 stories of living space and keep to a similar classic style, so in 10-15 years you dont have these out dated looking buildings. the height requirement i was speaking of seems to be in progress, but i see all kinds of wild design on the some of the new buildings. there is new apartment complex that is near completion just west of the 405 off of the SMB exit that I see every day on my way too work. It's fairly tall, maybe 4 or 5 stories, but has this stupid yellow facade with instersecting diagonal lines running across it. you cant tell me people are going to think that is great architecture in 10 years let alone 5, let alone in the current. I'm not asking for block after block of brownstones, but there is something cool about cities like nyc, boston, dc, and san francisco, that have architecturally similar neighborhoods throughout the city. I guess thats what cities like santa monica and west hollywood have going for them, minus the lack of "timeless" design.
