Thats exactly what I've been thinking for a long time. And By the way, the Westwood and Century City skyline look as if they are one from this angle, yet they are a mile apart.

Goom: Yes, the Wilshire Grand and 7th & Fig will bring some life to the FINANCIAL DISTRICT, which is pretty dead after 5pm and on weekends.

But if you want to see life in downtown try Spring Street on a Saturday night or even better on an artwalk night (2nd Thursday every month).

The streets are FILLED with people spilling in and out of art galleries and bars/restaurants.

Downtown Los Angeles Art Walk

There are a lot of projects in that area. Jardin Is right next to LA Central, Marriott Courtyard/Residence Inn is across the street from Ritz-Carlton, and Metropolis a block away. I'd also like to see development in the surrounding neighborhoods including City West, Pico Union, Westlake and along the Figueroa Corridor.
