1) Silver Lake: What condo building? All anyone in Silver Lake cares about is their local mom-and-pop hardware store, Ballers on Hyperion. Apparently, it rules and it's not moving. And we have no idea bout the status of those overpriced condos. Sorry.

2) Pasadena: The commenters confirmed what we also heard, that the hotel/condo project going in at the NW corner of Fair Oaks and Walnut will include a W Hotel. Via the City of Pasadena, the project at 25 W. Walnut Street will include a "6 story mixed use project consisting of 220 room hotel, 122 unit condo & 18,000 s.f. retail." We dug through Pasadena's files and pulled the black and white rendering above. Nothing too groundbreaking with that design, though. You can imagine the two-tones and stucco, because we've all seen it before.

3) Pasadena: The West Gate project continues, says commenter rcm: "West Gate has not stopped - garage excavation is underway and will progress from the south towards the north in phases."
