i dont know if this has been posted before, but this is a nice tall tower for Wilshire in KTown. There are several proposals for 20 - 50 story towers on wilshire and the dream of a huge skyline from downtown LA to centruy city is becoming more and more a reality with all the projects in the poipline for DT LA, Mid Wilshire, and Century City.

Where exactly is this tower going to be erected at. It does not specify on the location at all. It's not in K~town for the fact that there is no room to built. On the other hand finally something in the the range of 50th floors around Wilshire (Not Downtown or Century City).

The web site did not mention a sales officee, or groundbraking..... maybe this is not a project taken seriously. Wasn't this project one tall tower, and one shorter one?

This tower is proposed the for the recently cleared lot (Serrano - empty from Wilshire to 7th) next to (east of) Wilshire Aroma. There were two towers proposed for this lot a few weeks ago, so you can see, it's still quite speculative, and the proposal has changed since I joined the original website interest list.

So I suppose that http://3670wilshireblvd.com/ is officially going to happen. I am looking at LA curbed and they have a picture of the lot its on with a sign advertising it....http://www.californiaconnected.org/newsroom/?p=52 When a sign is set up, does that mean construction is likely to commence soon after? Also is this to be a new tallest for Koreatown? It's also ashame its only going to be 1 tower because an earlier rendering I saw it with 2.

Since we are on the topic of Koreatown, does anybody know what sort of tenants are going to be in the new mallish project underconstruction behind the Equitable building? Also does any one have the status of projects like the High Rise at Wilshire and Catilina, Wilshire and Western, and http://www.wddcorp.com/projects/kt_circa.asp . I would post the renderings I have but I can't seem to figure out how. Told my HTML is off.

^ Wait a minute........ when you click on the link for this project you are giving a choice of language. One of them is English, second is korean so what's wrong with this???

Since I'm not from Korea nor speak Korean to me this project is trying to cater to a specific race. I know the project is K~Town but not everyone is Korean. I like living in a diverse city but I hate when others get preferences. It makes others feel left out.......

I do like the building though :)

Well they have the english side of the page as well. I think that they are just trying to appeal to the predominant Korean Demographic of the area (with money), but not exclusively. These are luxury residences, so my guess is that whoever has deep pockets is in, no matter the race.

I thought I read somewhere that gays were starting to move into Koreatown, escaping higher rents of the Heterofying West Hollywood. If this is the case we may in 10 years see less Korean signs and more babystyle and pottery barn kids stores....just kidding.
