It’s hard to believe that it’s still going on. I thought for certain that when I returned to L.A. the Earthquake Building would be done and populated by rich young Hollywood whelps. But no, the windows are still going in. And you know what? I’m glad. I think I’ll be disappointed when they finally finish this beast. It’s been such a part of my Hollywood lifestyle for so long, I don’t want it to stop.
I also want to say that it’s impressive how true to vision the project has been. Click on the image above to see the side-by-side comparison. On the left is how it looked yesterday at 2:14 PM. On the right is a photo taken by The CIM Group of the completed project using their special Pentax time-travel lens. Nice job, folks.
Oh, and for the record? The building isn’t leaning.
For more evidence of my Sunset & Vine obsession, see more photos after the jump.
The tower in its full shroud. I used to have a crush on the West side of the building.
The same shroud, about a year later, after some serious wind.
