Someone is Building a Park on the Side of a Downtown L.A. Building
The folks at Rising Realty Partners say they plan to build 80 foot tall vertical green space on the side of its circa-1908 PacMutual Campus downtown.
They hope to have the wall up by July.
The vertical landscape feature will adorn the east side of the PacMutual Campus in Downtown Los Angeles, one of the most historic buildings in the City, and will overlook Pershing Square. A restaurant and café will be situated at the base of the LiveWall.

New businesses and new residents are crowding into parts of downtown LA, a neighborhood that is reinventing itself. We hear about one archetypical example: the King Eddy Saloon close to the heart of Skid Row. It’s an establishment “sealed in amber” back in the 1960’s, now adapting to its changing surroundings. What’s happening to the homeless and the formerly homeless, now living in low-cost housing? Is gentrification shrinking Skid Row? Listen to the piece on KCRW.
