Images taken one year apart by Paul Wright highlight the rapid pace of construction in Downtown Los Angeles, as viewed from the Kenneth Hahn State Recreation Area.

The before photo shows an abundance of cranes between South Park and the Financial District, as projects such as Metropolis, Oceanwide Plaza, and Circa were simultaneously midway through construction.

The latter image, from January 2018, shows those towers in a semi-finished state, with additional buildings at 825 South Hill and 1120 Grand Avenue protruding into the skyline.

Imagine what's to come in 2019!

Small Apartment Building Slated for Crescent Heights Boulevard

Three-story, 12-unit building would rise on two parcels.

Last week, the City of West Hollywood's Design Review Subcommittee considered a proposal to construct a small apartment building on two parcels at 1011 and 1015 N. Crescent Heights Boulevard.

The project, which is being designed by Culver City-based architecture firm Modative, calls for the construction of a three-story, 12-unit building featuring 20 parking spaces.  Plans call for a mix of one- and two-bedroom dwellings, including one unit of affordable housing.
