WeHoVille reveals this exciting new project

Jason Illoulian's idea for a hotel and pedestrian retail center to replace The Factory looks pretty exciting. It has a pedestrian-only lane going through its center which lets people cross the entire block in a car free setting. Let's see more of this!

Looks like the Expo line is already bringing in some cool new development activity.

From Building Los Angeles

Expo Line passengers in-between the Culver City and La Cienega/Jefferson Stations might be getting some very noticeable eye candy in the not-so-distant future. Believe it or not, LADBS permits appear to be in the works for (W)rapper, the poorly-named, Eric Owen Moss-designed... (continued)

Prep for construction proving to be a challenge

From the Downtown News:

Beneath the lobby’s long-worn mosaic tile work lay a dank basement with asbestos in the pipe insulation and vinyl floor tiling, according to a site assessment conducted by the state Department of General Services. Some surfaces had been treated with toxic lead paint, and toxic mold had appeared.

@Travis Deal - Although this proposed park seems like a good idea, it will probably have few if any trees. The consensus is that it will be another Pershing Square concrete desert. The city would have better results turning it over to the private sector. ....imo

Curbed has an article about the arch-stairways

Like we saw in the renderings, the engineering team now confirms that some of the arches on the new bridge will have climbable stairways. Also awesome: the bridge will have bike paths and will also provide access to the river below.
