New, 6 comments

LA MIRADA: American Apparel has outgrown its high-profile warehouse space in Downtown and has no opened up a huuuuge (225,000 square feet) distribution center in La Mirada and our pals at Racked LA got a tour. The fancy new space will help speed up operations (it's still done by hand in the old space); features include self-piloted cars "that will zoom at seven to eight miles an hour up and down shelving aisles to energy-efficient overhead lighting and a massive conveyor belt that only kicks on when a box is placed upon it." See more over at RLA. [Racked LA]

HOLLYWOOD: Millennium Hollywood, those Capitol-Records-flanking towers that have just barely started a long approvals process, has released a smartphone app. It will not tell you what the enormous project might actually look like (at least not yet--developers have only released "conceptual plans"), but it will "message users about specific content based on their location in Hollywood through push notifications. For example, if a user with the app is near Boardner's, it will alert them about the blog post about the legendary Hollywood watering hole." [Curbed Inbox]
