While readers debate whether these schools are actually needed, here's a look at what's coming to Boyle Heights. Located right along the under-construction Gold Line, and relieving the Roosevelt HS, East LA Area New HS #1 goes for a strong color theme, similar to the green and yellow motif of the Edward R Roybal School. Mr. Hawthorne (architecture critic for the Times), we patiently await your critique. Meanwhile, the cost: $103,421,646.
