But you guys are kidding yourselves if you think the residents of these new luxury towers are going to be taking the subway. People paying millions to live in a vertical gated community on the Westside aren't going to be transit riders. For that matter, I doubt many of the office workers in CC will be, either. However, at least with those buildings, there are lots of support staff-- retail workers, security, custodial, and more junior employees that will benefit from the purple line stop. I just don't see many agents and lawyers (biggest clusters represented in CC) giving up their cars and easy, in-building parking spots to take the metro. Especially given where most of those people live.
