Downtown blog Angelenic posts two appealing renderings of the proposed Nikkei Center development at the northeast corner of 1st and Alameda in Little Tokyo. The 390 unit mixed-use development didn't shy away from bright colors sure to please the discerning Little Tokyo-ite eye. Unclear, however, is whether the colors will result from glass and lighting effects or just end up being the typical multi-colored stucco mess that never fails to disappoint. We need to see a material board before we give this one our stamp of non-disapproval.
