In this week's edition of Throwback Thursday, we return again to the $1-billion Metropolis development.

The before image, taken by architectural photographer Hunter Kerhart in July 2015, shows the project as its first phase was making its way above ground.  The 38-story condo tower and the 19-story Hotel Indigo are now open.

The after image, from January 2018, shows the project's third and fourth towers - standing 40 and 56 stories respectively - at the completion of vertical construction.

The full buildout of the project comprises more than 1,200 condominiums, 350 hotel rooms, and retail space.

Live/Work Development Underway in Frogtown

The four-story building is designed by Kevin Tsai Architecture.

A small live/work development is making slow-but-steady progress in Frogtown.

The project, located on Eads Street between Blake Avenue and the Los Angeles River, will consist of a four-story edifice featuring eight dwelling units above a street-level coffee shop.
