Rendering/Reality is a Curbed feature that considers the often unsubtle differences between what a building looks like in its renderings, and what it looks like when they get around to building the thing. Nominees, please.
This appears to be an older rendering for downtown's 717 Olympic, the 156-unit apartment building that developers are billing as being located "in the heart of LA Live." What we guess is a more recent rendering (the two images more closely match) is after the jump. Nostalgic for 717's construction days? Back story is here.
