We expected co-editor Josh (pictured above) to be back from his Amazonian Adventure by now, but alas, he is not. So we're a bit behind posting this week's R&B. As a result, answers will be posted on Fri.
1) Hollywood: We wondered about this one too. And a friend even looked into the tax history of the place, since he also wondered about this strange house: "What’s up with the massive Mediterranean monstrosity of a house that has sat incomplete at the top of Runyon Canyon (Maybe at the end of Solar Dr or Astral Dr)?"
2) West Hollywood: A reader checks in with a question we receive periodically: "OK, it's been a long time since someone has brought this up, so I thought I'd reintroduce an old favorite: What the heck is going on with the Sunset Millennium project in WeHo? The City approved the project in April 2005, and the "Latest News" section of the project website hasn't been updated since April 2006. Last I heard they were going to break ground on the project (which includes condos, W and Marriott hotels) end of '06, but clearly that hasn't happened. Is this dying a slow death? The vacant ugly buildings straddling La Cienega are starting to get on my nerves--where's our WeHo Wonderproject??"
3) Atwater Village: School's starting soon, so it's appropriate we get a school-related question: "Any idea what is going on at the future L.A. City College Campus at the Van De Kamp’s building in Atwater? Is that Atwater or Cypress Park, anyway? They have been working on the project for at least 5 years now and usually not even the government takes that long (unless you count Belmont).Their most recent Northeast Campus Newsletter is from October 2003. Looks like their “VDK Design Plans” just involve making the building flat and adding a lot of blue. As a former student at LACC I would like to know what is going on with this project. I would also like to know why I only got a B in macro economics there. It kept me out of Wharton (although not USC)."
That's all we have for this week. Post your answers in the comments, or drop us a line.
