We're happy to report that work is progressing nicely at the 5600 Wilshire project, which as many of you may remember sat as an open pit for what seemed like years (actually, it was approximately
15 27 years). The proposed 284-unit, mixed use project had workers crawling all over it when we stopped by earlier this week. According to the Larchmont Chronicle, the project is proposed for completion in Fall 2008. The water-colory renderings (after the jump) indicate a color scheme involving various shades of non-descript browns and beiges, sure to kill the soul of anyone who wanders near.
