New, 5 comments

CULVER CITY: The latest shot of Westfield's $75 million renovation of the Fox Hills mall. "They seem to be pounding beams into the ground for the foundation," writes a reader. Past construction photos and Target talk is here. Watch for more coverage on our shoppy sister Racked LA. We're told that the skywriting is something to do with that Tori & Dean TV show nonsense.

WATTS: The Watts House project is a "large-scale artwork-as-urban-development engaging art and architecture as a catalyst for expanding and enhancing community," according to the press release. Artist Edgar Arceneaux, architect Peter Zellner and students at USC School of Architecture have "proposed three distinct, over-arching master plans for the Watts Towers Cultural Crescent. The plans include green architectural projects for the location of an artist-in-residency program, exhibition spaces, a cafe?, communal house, daycare, educational programming, WHP offices and residential housing. " Right now, the group is trying to buy a foreclosed property as part of the project. [Curbed InBox]
