Biking around on Saturday I noticed that the Transamerica SBC at&t center is getting a makeover. That's sort of an "It's about time" type of thing, but what interested me was that the renderings showed the building with a very different looking skin.

The images show a much more traditional looking glass building with the odd open space on the top filled in (though still apparently a different color).

I tend to think that what they do to the ground-floor is going to be much more important than changes to the skin, as that area starts to get enough stuff to support a retail center. It's still interesting, though, since that building does stand so prominent (and alone) in the LA skyline.

Next question is when is the old AT&T Center (6th and Grand) going to get its makeover?
