My doctor told me to try and walk as much as I can- to push myself as much as I can. So with that in mind, I walked up to the Long’s Drugstore on Hollywood Blvd just past the Chinese Theater. I took the scenic route (Franklin and then south on Orange). I think the street is Orange, but anyway, take a look.
Let me guess- condominiums above some shops and restaurants, with ample parking below the whole colossal mess. Who’s behind this project is anyone’s guess. Where they get their money is an open question. Will the project show any respect for the Chinese Theatre and at least try to reflect the beauty of their neighbor? I seriously doubt it. Watch as the developers take their big cranes and slash another part of the once-beautiful face of Hollywood!
Why are people investing here anyway? L.A. is a terrible market for selling housing and for buying housing. Hmmmmm, that tells me that the whole market is sinking, so to speak; clearly it’s not a good time to invest. Weird and upsetting all at the same time.
But what’s this? They’re filming some bullshit in the Babylonian courtyard at Hollywood and Highland mall. Take a look.
What fun! I love filming film shoots!
