True that. Century City doesn't have dozens and dozens of tall buildings like most major US cities' downtowns do, but what Century City does have is a collection of fairly tall towers, relative to many downtown skylines--it has five 500+ foot towers, four 400-500 footers, and eight 300-400 footers.

Had a chance to go around Echo Park today. That area is booming with new infill. Not giant buildings, but it seems the small ones are adding up.

Temple St, City West, Chinatown, same thing.

Everything seems denser than the last time I was there.

I don't see any new towers under construction in Century City. I would think it would be a favorable location especially for new residential. Is it due to lack of land or land use restrictions?

Nothing u/c but there's a couple of proposals and the Fox Studios expansion. There's the Beverly Hilton development (2 30 story buildings) that's Century City adjacent as well.

It just built 3 40 story residential buildings. It's not hurting for new construction, there's just nothing at the moment.

Any information on the Wilshire Gayley in Westwood? I heard that they might be getting started soon on the 426 foot 29 story building that will resemble the Flatiron Building in New York.

The L.A. Times on Monday had a big front page story on the "non profit" HIV foundation trying to block new development and housing all over the city, but especially in the Hollywood area. Strange that a "non profit" HIV foundation would use its funds to block badly needed housing, especially around transit ststions. Since when is restricting new housing going to help people who can't find or afford housing? Less supply = higher prices and rents. Shouldn't it be focused on HIV issues rather than being A big "Nimby" advocate? Maybe somebody could link the article.

That guy has been around for 7 or 8 years. He usually fails.

That would be an incredible groundbreaking. I love Robert AM Stern's work by and large and love this project in particular.

Are those still active proposals? Very excited if they are...

Robert Stern designed a residential development in Newport Beach with a similar design.

https://www.latimes.com/socal/daily-...126-story.html

Robert Stern also designed 1331 Maryland Ave, SW in DC.

Usually fails, but it delays badly needed housing projects for months or years. Has anyone tried to challenge the non profit status when funds are used for purposes unrelated to the purpose of the foundation, like blocking real estate developments?

One of my fave projects also. Love the flatiron bldg. in NYC. There's a triangular parcel in DTLA where Broadway and Spring come together that would also be good for a flat iron type building.

Yes, the Beverly Hills Hilton one had updates a few months ago. Approved, I believe.

The Fox expansion is more long term, but has a bunch of 20-30 story buildings included.

That's this one right? (Beverly, not Fox)

If only Los Angeles Country Club would sell the south side of Wilshire to developers...

Google Earth was finally updated with the complete towers, so you can finally see their full height using the elevation tool.

They both stand 856 feet above sea-level, so from Avenue of the Stars and the podium they are on, they are roughly 562 feet tall, and from Solar Way they are 589 feet.
