Gotta say the original really took the wind out of the Capitol Records building. I'm glad they downsized it.

I do like the shorter towers, but it also looks like they've gone down-market on the materials, too, which is a disappointment. It looks like they've gone for something less unique and more convential and off-the-rack.

I don't mind the change in materials. While wood would have looked nice for the first couple months, it would have eventually started to become very washed out, and I imagine re-coaing wood on a skyscraper is no easy feat.

Judging the materials is most likely pointless until we see some official renderings. Millenium has emphasized that the images they've provided thus far are merely conceptual.

Yeah, hopefully the final design of the towers will be much better than the renderings as these will be the tallest buildings in Hollywood.

The LA City Council approved this project yesterday. Construction will begin next year and take 30 months to complete. What you see in the above renderings is the final design.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A coalition of residents who live in famed Hollywood neighborhoods filed a lawsuit Wednesday to stop a $654 million skyscraper project from rising just down the hill from the landmark Hollywood Sign because of earthquake concerns.

The suit filed Wednesday says city officials approved the project without informing the public of environmental impacts including the likelihood that the Millenium towers would sit on top of an earthquake fault.

The suit was filed by neighborhood groups against the City of Los Angeles and the developers, Millenium Hollywood, LLC. The developers want to build towers 39 and 35 stories tall surrounding the famed Capitol Records building.
