Grabbed this today. Well along. The Yoshinoya moved into the strip mall across the street replacing an old smoke shop.

Crenshaw Line up La Brea and new HRT from Sunset in Silver Lake / Echo Park to Santa Monica down La Cienega to Venice terminating at the beach would obviously be an amazing crosstown train and really push the metro system towards universal usability. Only issue is, there's literally no political willpower, interest, or even consideration towards actualization. As of now, this proposal exists only as an idea broached upon a few scattered internet forums and facebook groups. A true shame, but at least 405 / Sepulveda is going to be full HRT.

That Culver City project looks promising. At least it has street and sidewalk presence.

One last Cahuenga update, Academy Square and Rise -

(Hyperbole*) Which part gave it away? ofcourse it was. I wasn't being literal. Just pointing out in comparison how Metro has grand plans to needlessly expand some corridors while totally ignoring other corridors that would actually have massive amounts of riders.

My bad I thought you were being more literal. Anyhow I agree with you to an extent. We need more money for infrastructure.

I never read of any development in Orange County. There must be something being built out there, even if it's a small apartment building. Or is there a separate thread. Isn't Orange County part of Metro? And Riverside and Ventura County?

Yea, Anaheim, Santa Ana, Fullerton and Irvine are building quite a bit. People dont add to the OC thread, but it's not like nothing's going on there lol. They're used to be a decent OC development site, but the guy stopped running it.

Completely understood! Perhaps one day someone will revise the OC development site! Would love to see what they're building out there!

There is an Orange County thread under the Pacific West section of this forum but it hasn't been updated in a year-and-a-half. As an Orange County native, I'd like to see updates.

I can't thank you enough for that referral as I went back all the way to 2008. I didn't realize there was that much construction going on out there, and even a couple streetcar lines.

As far as an urban like city, Santa Ana could be a candidate, if not already.

I haven't been thru Orange County in 15-20 years. I've gotten too damn lazy in my travels, as I'm now restricting myself to fly to cities where I can ride the rails all day, where I don't have to put my hands on a steering wheel.

Can I dream? Light rail lines extended into Orange County from L.A..

I do realize there's a commuter line out to Oceanside, perhaps I'll do that some time when I'm in the area.

Amtrak’s Pacific Surfliner is very popular among those traveling between Los Angeles and San Diego. My friends actually got me into it and prefer to travel that way now due to my friend’s apartment in LA being walking distance from the Hollywood and Vine red train station

Is the crane near Westwood Village the one for the 20 story dorm? I saw it yesterday.
