New, 27 comments

VENICE: This building has been under-construction for what seems like forever: It looks to be a three-unit condo project at Pacific and Brooks in Venice. More details to hopefully follow on this one...[Curbed Staff]

LOS ANGELES: President Obama is coming to the city tomorrow and the Inbox has been hit with a few complaints about the expected traffic. Here's the view from Century City. A reader gripes: "So, pretty much, there is no way for me to get to work (I work on Avenue of the Stars, which apparently will be closed between Santa Monica and Pico. Let's not split hairs here guys -that is ALL of Avenue of the Stars). And, in the spirit of GREAT timing, they are closing the roads from 5-7pm today and 8-10am tomorrow. Look for major gridlock to ensue...But, at least Obama is coming to visit? Maybe some stimulus dollars will fall from his passing motorcade to be eagerly grabbed up by those of us waiting to go home...Below is the email from our office manager: 'I've just received confirmation of the following street closures now occurring between the approximate times of 5 - 7 p.m. today. IMPORTANT NOTE: the same closures will apply between 8 - 10 a.m. tomorrow morning. Therefore, please plan accordingly.
* Motor Avenue between Monte Mar and Pico Blvd.
* Pico Blvd. between Century Park East and Overland Avenue
* Avenue of the Stars between Santa Monica Blvd. and Pico Blvd.
* Santa Monica Blvd. between Beverly Glen and Wilshire Blvd.
* Olympic Blvd. between Century Park West and Century Park East (short closure while the motorcade is in route)" [Curbed InBox]
