This Week's Top Stories: LA's mass transit system began growing another connection this week with the official groundbreaking of the Crenshaw Light Rail Line, connecting the Expo Line to the Green Line, with a plan to finally (maybe?) get people to LAX. More plans to repurpose Silver Lake Reservoir have bubbled up to the surface, with a nifty esplanade on top of that dam separating Silver Lake and Ivanhoe reservoirs being proposed. This town needs some affordable rentals and fast! A blotchy red map says rentals in Los Angeles are entirely unaffordable. A hideous old-school mall in North Hollywood may get new life as a mixed use community if developers are able to convince neighbors that they come in peace. In-N-Out Burger is unable to go into Downtown LA because they need enough space for a drive-thru and they have standards for the size of their sites. Harumph. A rather lovely home in North Hollywood designed by Palmer & Krisel has come on the market for a very affordable (in LA dollars) $499k. A developer is proposing to bring back drive-in movies to the City of Paramount's old drive-in movie complex known as the Rodium starting this Spring with some very modern upgrades.
