In this week's Throwback Thursday, photographer Hunter Kerhart captures five months of change at the Parmalee Building in Downtown Los Angeles' Historic Core.

The owner of the Parmalee Building, which has stood at 720 S. Broadway for 110 years, is restoring the upper floors of the six-story edifice with approximately 70,000 square feet of office space.  An earlier plan to convert the building into 32 live/work lofts was abandoned earlier this year.

The before image, taken in May 2017 before the start of construction, shows a Broadway facade marred with boarded windows and graffiti.

The latter picture, taken in October 2017, shows glass and a new paint job.

Architect David Takacs is designing the project.
