CENTURY CITY: Jolly Green Giant denied. SunCal—developer of the 45-story, 177-unit condo tower being designed by French architect Jean Nouvel—released a statement saying the project was on hold. And in all honesty, this thing is probably never coming at all...gaze upon the last rendering that was out there.
LOS FELIZ: It's hard to understand how this project is costing $800,000, but the biggest construction job going on in Los Feliz right now is a wee little park at Hollywood Blvd. and Vermont Ave. Poke, poke: City Council President Eric Garcetti once referred to projects like these as "urban acupuncture."
DOWNTOWN: Meetings, meetings and talk of going underground. The MTA is holding the final series of alternative analysis update meetings for the downtown regional connector. Sexy maps and more.
BEVERLY HILLS: And yet another hotel for Los Angeles. Those insanely wealthy Candy Brothers announced their 9900 Wilshire project, that Richard Meier-designed development, will now possibly have a five-star hotel.
SOUTH LA: Not everything got canceled or destroyed this week: Pann's Coffee Shop got a total rehabilitation of their 50-year-old neon sign. Nice work, Pann's! [Image via You-Are-Here.]
ECHO PARK: The tagged-up Morton Place mural, located just west of Dodger Stadium in Echo Park, got the official whitewash. And then everyone cried racism. But perhaps something new is coming?
