This Week's Top Stories: With opponents lining up, the Los Angeles City Planning Department gave a recommendation to approve the very tall Millennium Hollywood Towers proposed to rise next to the Capitol Records building. Downtown's Cecil Hotel has hit a few bumps (aka corpses and cockroaches) in its long, unpleasant history. A flip in Echo Park by development team Re-inhabitat is asking over a half-a-million more than what it was purchased for a year ago. The feel good story of the week: An airplane loving man recreates a partial replica of a Pan-Am plane in a warehouse in the City of Industry. Lawsuits and political attacks over the planned Purple Line continue, as Beverly Hill-ians will never forget this War of Tunneled Aggression against them. The new CicLAvia map is out for the April 21st ride, and in a first you'll be able to ride from Downtown to the Beach, mostly via Venice Boulevard. As part of Modernism Week, Curbed went inside the stark white Jennings House in Palm Springs.
