SOUTH PARK: Olympic and Hill, Downtown's latest mixed-use project, looks to be getting off the ground, judging by a photo from SkyscraperPage poster blackcat23. With a planned completion date in 2016 (architect TCA says 2015 on its website), there's no time to waste. When finished, this as-yet-uninspiring stretch of South Park will have 281 new apartments, 16,000 square feet of retail, and more than 5,000 square feet of live/work units. [SkyscraperPage]

LOS ANGELES: Termed-out Mayor Villaraigosa leaves his post on June 30, meaning he'll have to move from Windsor Square's Getty House--nonprofit think tank Zócalo Public Square wants readers to tell them which LA neighborhood he should call home next. His Mt. Washington house went to the ex-wife and he obliquely told the New York Times he's looking for places near LAX (meaning he'd be traveling a bunch), but here's your chance to say why your neighborhood is perfect for a limelight-loving ex-mayor who loves trees, cycling, and big promises. The most compelling pitch wins a nice prize from Zócalo. [Curbed Inbox]
