Mid-Wilshire Lowe’s Grabs Attention

Rendering by Studio One Eleven at Perkowitz+Ruth Architects

The giant Lowe’s Home Improvement store rising on Pico Blvd just east of Rimpau, will no doubt be a handy location for Larchmont/ Hancock Park  residents to drop in and pick up those 2 x 4s for the garage renovation. But residents in the area are not so pleased with the second ‘bait-and-switch’ action when developer CIM Group released photos of newly-proposed Super signage that will cover 900 sq ft of frontage, instead of the original approved 100 sq feet. It’s not the first time residents have been duped by the project: the building was erected much taller and closer to residences than residents were originally told.

See the latest renderings of the proposed monster signage on Curbed LA’s blog yesterday. It does look a bit more like New York’s Times Square than the Midtown Crossing at Pico and San Vicente.

See the Larchmont Buzz earlier post on Midtown Crossing.
