Last week, the Los Angeles County Department of Works completed its $14.5-million upgrade of Marina del Rey's Oxford Basin.

The project installed a new walking path around the perimeter of the lagoon, as well as landscaping, informational signage, fencing, lighting and observation areas.  It also implemented functional improvements, including the removal of sediment, a new circulation berm and native landscaping.

Checking in on the Slow-Moving 1133 Hope Condo Tower

The 28-story tower broke ground in March 2017.

Slowly but surely, the concrete frame of 1133 Hope Street rises in South Park. The 28-story tower, located just east of Metro's Pico Station, will feature 200 residential units above 5,000 square feet of ground-floor retail uses and a parking podium upon completion.  Plans for the mixed-use project dated back to 2005, when the Canadian development firm Amacon initially submitted plans for a 35-story building on the site.
