Mapping 10 Projects Currently in Pre-Development

View as Map

Permits for new construction are going up, up, up and dirt's being moved all over Los Angeles. So what can we expect to see in 2013 and beyond? This weekend we take another opportunity to peer into the crystal ball to see some of the projects currently wending their way through the entitlements and design review process as they make their way to a neighborhood near you. Some of these have been approved and some haven't, but all are in the early stages of development. Here, then, is our second installment of the Pre-Development Watch map, highlighting projects that you may or may not be aware of, but all currently in the queue. Are you a loose lipped land-use lawyer, chatty planner, or gossipy architect that knows of a project currently in the throes of conception? Email us and let us know! (Bonus love if you have renderings).
