855 N. Croft may be your blue heaven, or your blue hell (at least one local was griping to us over the weekend about how very big this project is compared to the surrounding apartment and condo buildings). Whatever your feelings, SPF:a Architects' 855 N. Croft, that 33-unit condo development going up (rather slowly) on a site two blocks north of Melrose and two blocks east of La Cienega, is now showing off its fancy Swiss prefab cement panels. Additionally, the web site is now showing floor plans. It doesn't look like sales---prices for condos were set to start in the low $800,000s--have launched yet. More time to debate the merits or misses of the project.
