HOLLYWOOD: We heard second half of 2009, but maybe someone knows something we don't about that big mixed-use 6200 Blvd project. "Hey...just curious if you've heard anything. I heard from a friend who works for a big big developer (not the blvd. 6200 developer) that they were breaking ground at end of july/beginning of august." [Curbed InBox]
