Thank you for giving us plenty to think about this week. Please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment if you have an answer to these question. More questions welcome for next week.
1) Koreatown: A reader has a question about the construction site that isn't going anywhere. Has it stalled? "What (if anything, please) are they building across from the Wilshire/Vermont subway station? Right now, it's a depressing lot and pretty much the first thing you see after rising from the Earth—well, besides the Coffee Bean."
2) Vermonica: If it looks like school, and smells like a school... "What went up like gangbusters on Heliotrope (off Melrose, near the bicycle kitchen)? It's probably a school, but maybe something more thrilling? Please?" [pictured above]
3) Venice: Tear down those boards Michael Folonis! "What's up with the Folonis-designed Thornton Lofts in Venice ? It has looked done for many months now but it is all boarded up. What happened?"
