That W|P Sign

It may look like a green blob in my photo, but that bright sign on the corner of the Hope and 6th is for a Wolfgang Puck Express (link is for Santa Monica location) to be opened on the ground floor of the newly residential building.

I'm particularly interested in seeing the scaffolding come off of building like this one that have been shrouded for so long. The University Club building was already in demolition when I moved Downtown, so I have no memory of it other than construction.

Similarly, I can barely even remember what The Brockman Building looked like before it went under its white shroud. I hear work going on under there as I walk by every day, though, so hopefully we'll get to see some results soon.
