After last month's Higgins Takedown, construction on the LAPD Motorpool site has moved quickly. Materials from the demolished gallery building and surrounding parking lots have been cleared, and site excavation continues.

In the next block work on the Medallion project is now moving up instead of down. Foundations have been laid and are rising toward ground-level. Only a portion of the eventual project footprint has been excavated, suggesting that the project will come online in stages.

After the jump, one more shot of the LAPD site.
