New, 2 comments

THAI TOWN: For years now, a set of Asponsi (half-woman, half-lion) statues have looked down on the western entrance to Thai Town, at Hollywood and Western. Finally last week ground break on the neighborhood's eastern gateway, which will bring two statues and three commemorative plaques to the area around Hollywood and Hobart. The project was developed by the Thai Community Development Center. [Curbed Inbox]

BOYLE HEIGHTS: It seems like there have been all kinds of affordable housing projects making their debuts lately--they must have all taken advantage of the low costs during that long building lull of the past few years. The latest to open is the Las Margaritas apartments in Boyle Heights. The project includes 42 studios, one-, two-, and three-bedrooms, plus a community room, and Gold Line adjacency. [Curbed Inbox]
