the empty lot i was hoping some naturalist or biologist would save from development by making some discovery is now under development. i guess no discoveries were made or it wasn't important enough or the economy really is rebounding for someone.
there aren't enough hotels around lax already so another one is being built. with three separate office-park/strip-malls with "for lease" signs on them across the street, the view will be wonderful. being a half-block away from a leading industrial gas supplier's delivery point to a defense contractor will be great for the guests too.
as they say in real estate, location, location, location. blocks away from lax and minutes away from the beach make this a prime locati--you know what? fuck it, i'd rather have a nature preserve. if i try sometime, maybe i'll get what i need.
