In case you missed it, last week the city unveiled it’s plan to raze all of downtown, hand the remains over to Frank Gehry to rebuild, and officially change the city’s name to Gehryvania. Maybe that’s an exaggeration, but they did unveil the first phase their “Grand Avenue plan” which is essentially the same thing. I’m reserving judgement, but if you don’t like Disney Concert Hall then I suggest you refrain from buying a loft in LA’s up-and-coming downtown. The plan also includes plans for a 49,535 square-foot grocery store at Olive and First. Am I crazy, or is that a big mothertrucker of a grocery store? LAist has some more coverage, including another press photo of Gehry’s dollhouse the model.
