Following an exciting visit in September (sparks! welding!) to the La Belle at Hollywood Tower site at 6142 Franklin Avenue, we can report that wood is rising at the under construction apartment building (some city documents indicate 142 apartment units; other documents a lower number of units). Either way, it's an apartment building, people. According to an old and possibly now erroneous Los Angeles Business Journal article, developer Franklin-Vista Partners plans to connect this building with the art deco Hollywood Tower (they also own that). Whatever eventually rises, it's a sure bet residents will do a lot of jaywalking to the 101 Coffee Shop across the street.
