Here’s What Happened During Last Month’s Development & Construction

The hole in the ground at Onni’s 820 S. Olive continues to get deeper and deeper.

Lots of construction activity at Giannini Place at 7th & Olive as it continues its transformation into the NoMad hotel.

Ten50 is topped out, where there will be a purported drone landing pad, but there’s still work to be done on the penthouses, balconies and podium.

Atelier seems to be deciding between several different decorative panel options for its podium covering. I vote for the cool leaf-like design, but we’ll see what happens.

The low-rise office building at 500 S. Santa Fe Ave. in Arts District now has a solid concrete frame.

The old May Company building at Wilshire & Fairfax has lost it’s backside as it heads towards becoming the Academy Museum.

After a 3-year “Everything Must Go” closing sale, Downtown’s Blue Jeans discount store is no longer. The historic building is in the process of a face-lift.

Affordable housing project Topaz at 6th & Main continues to be one of the slowest developments of. all. time.

The massive development at 950 E. Third St. in Arts District has cleared the entire plot and continues prep-work before their concrete pour.
