(Picture of NoHo Lofts)
A couple of small items...
1) The NoHo Lofts will be doing an open house this weekend from 10-2pm, both Saturday and Sunday. The recently completed lofts are located at 5355 Cartwright Avenue in what was formerly a warehouse for Adolph's meat tenderizer. Curbed LA editors are in discussions to see if we can coordinate ourselves to make it to North Hollywood. Chances are slim.
2) Elleven, one of the newest mixed-use developments in Downtown's South Park neighborhood, has achieved occupancy approval. That means all the loft kiddies and their BMWs will be able to move in shortly. The release from the Mayor's Office says "ELLEVEN is the first building of five-building plan by the developer The South Group that will bring more than 1,700 new "for-sale" residential units to the South Park neighborhood of downtown Los Angeles. ELLEVEN is also the first residential high-rise building in downtown Los Angeles in more than 20 years!"
3) Everyone we know is calling bullshit (or giving a skeptical eye) to the proposed new residential towers - The Olympic (50 stories) and the City House (60 stories) - planned for South Park. The posters at the SkyscraperPage Forum note that the developers have indicated they will make their big announcement plus release new renderings of the buildings to the LA Times on April 23rd. If these things get built as proposed, we'll eat our blog.
