Thank you for your new questions this week. Please feel free to email us at la@curbed.com or leave a comment if you have an answer to these questions submitted by your neighbors.

1) Downtown: A colorful mystery in industrial LA. "I am curious about the construction of this building (pictured), its downtown in the industrial area, i think its a commercial or industrial new building. i took this photo a while ago, so its probably closer to done now, what is it?"

2) Hollywood: "I took this camera phone photo from the Runyon Canyon path earlier today (pictured). Looks like they are reinforcing the path, but hard to tell. There are also some huge steel beams blocking the old "tennis court". (Not pictured.) Does anyone have more information about what exactly is going on up there?"

3) Miracle Mile: "for years, i've gone to the post office on wilshire at detroit st. in the miracle mile (pictured). always wondered the history of the building as i highly doubt it was always a post office. perhaps an old theater? the word "meghrig" is written in a really cool font on the top... but that refers to the "meghrig coin and stamp supply" company also located in the building. any ideas?"
