Smoke pours out of a generator exhaust at 600 S. Spring on Saturday.

Pedestrians went scurrying minutes ago as a trio of booms accompanied black smoke in billowing from a generator exhaust in SB Tower at 600 S. Spring. The smoke has been a regular occurrence in recent days, but the booms were a new feature to Monday and brought out a truck from LAFD.

The 14-story SB Tower is slated to open as residential rental units in the upcoming months. The 1960 structure was once the headquarters of California Bank.
