717 Ninth Update

Let’s hope the parking structure is covered somehow. In fact, we wouldn’t mind a couple big billboards to cover it up.

717 Ninth Construction Update

717 Ninth has had a slow summer

717 Ninth has had a slow summer

717 Ninth has had financial trouble pretty much all summer long which slowed progress to a crawl and because of this push back what was a May 2009 completion, to September 2009. Wouldn’t be the first building to fall victim to financial trouble. At least it got off the ground and we were able to look at it affect our skyline in real life. Despite the troubled summer, more funding has been secured and all systems are GOOOOO!!


Concerto Construction Update

Our personal favorite residential tower, Concerto. Cladding on this building while not as fast as the Ritz is moving quick. Theres been a lot of mixed feelings about the towers facade but generally more positive for the most part. Let’s wait a little longer before we jump to conclusions 🙂

LA Live Construction Update 8/30/08

LA Live!

LA Live!

LA Live is really coming along nicely. Just looking at the main LA Live building, you can see where all the lights will be around it. In fact, they have been testing these lights at night for the past couple of days. A little more works needs to be done on the Olympic side of the building but most of the crew is now on the interior getting the restaurants and clubs ready for the fall openings.

ESPN Building

ESPN Building

The ESPN Facility is also looking spectacular. Its a shame that were still another year away from a full ESPN move-in…BUT the ESPNZONE will be ready in the fall.

Ritz Carlton Hotel

Ritz Carlton Hotel

Progress on the Ritz Carlton Hotel has been at warp speed since day 1. Talking with one of the workers today they said there on schedule for a top out before the year is over. I forgot to ask about how far the cladding around the building will be by years end but our guess is probably over 80% complete.

To see all the high resolution pictures, check out our flickr set. Its updated every Thursday afternoon.
