The latest renderings look absolutely wonderful! I can't wait.
Looks like McFarlane partners is now in charge of the Pershing Square Rennovation. These are the same guys that are working on 7th Street's conversion of Macy's Plaza into The Bloc.

A plan to create five new pedestrian-friendly connections to Union Station has been revealed by The Source. It will include large, dedicated bike paths along routes like Los Angeles St and Caesar Chavez. Here are the renderings.
The updated renderings for this project are getting support from the city. It's nice to see that they're finally starting to break these kinds of developments down into smaller chunks with pedestrian space in between.
It's easy to forget the crash mansion was ever here.
Looks like the siding is starting to go up!
