This edition of Throwback Thursday offers a before-and-after look at the intersection of 7th Street and Grand Avenue in Downtown Los Angeles.

The before image, captured by architectural photographer Hunter Kerhart in September 2014, shows the metal skeleton of Carmel Partners' 8th & Grand development just taking shape.

The latter image, taken in July 2017, shows the seven-story, 700-unit apartment complex in its completed state.  It is highlighted by a Whole Foods Market that now occupies a portion of its ground level.

Also seen in the background is Atelier DTLA, a 33-story apartment tower also developed by Carmel.
