LAX: The glassy-good renderings of the big renovation of LAX were finally released. The renovation will accommodate "the next generation of aircraft" including the Airbus A380 and the Boeing 787 Dreamliner.
University Park: George Lucas' USC School of Cinema Arts could use a little airport inspiration. As the landscaping is plopped in place and the building readies to open, we can't help but shake our heads for the number of missed opportunities.
South Park: Working its way through the City's approval process, we finally hear about the Daniel Libeskind designed tower proposed for 1340 S. Figueroa. Assuming the economy recovers, we hope to start seeing construction begin in two to three years. Renderings in the wild.
West Hollywood: Curbed takes a tour around LOHA's new 1140 Formosa project. The 11-unit condo building is open and selling. Jump on these quick - units are priced to go (with a $100k discount). And there are even plans for a little pocket park next door.
Hollywood: Speaking of pocket parks, the new $800k triangle park at the intersection of Vermont and Hollywood was officially unveiled. The giant scissors even showed up. The park is supposed to be homeless proof. But how about pigeon proof?
Hollywood: Continuing on the park theme, we got the first glimpses of the proposed Hollywood Central Park, which will sit atop the 101 Freeway from Bronson Avenue to Santa Monica Boulevard. Apparently, the feasibility study found it feasible. Hooray for feasibility!
