Updated 6:01 pm: A tipster passes along this photo of the northwest corner of Hollywood and Western, where until today the local landmark Thai Hot Dog stand stood. The property is owned by developer CIM group; a rep confirms to us that a permitted demolition took place today. The restaurant and its weird attached insurance storefront shut down in 2008. In 2009, the building was adjacent to a skirmish over other empty CIM-owned properties at Hollywood and Western, including the Bon Air Hotel, but was not slated for demolition at the time. The CIM rep says there's no plan for any development at the property right now. Update: According to Chris Nichols of Los Angeles magazine, the building's hot dog was transported across town this week and "lowered to a new home overlooking a 7-11 at Overland and Palms." It now sits on a building owned by National Promotions and Advertising.
