Los Angeles’ Skyline Sees Impressive Changes (2007 and Now)

Has Los Angeles‘ skyline changed a lot since 2007? Judging from the before-and-after slideshows published by our colleagues at RENTCafé, there’s been quite a lot going on in terms of development in California’s largest city.

Here’s how two of the downtown areas which have seen the most impressive changes looked back in 2007/2008 and how they look right now:

1. L.A. Live, Downtown L.A.

Downtown L.A. would not be the same without “the most entertaining place on the planet,” that is, L.A. Live. A part of it is the stunning 54-story tower which was completed in 2010 and houses 2 hotels — a Ritz-Carlton and a JW Marriott  — as well as 224 luxury condominiums at the Ritz-Carlton Residences.

2. 8th+ Hope, Downtown LA

This glassy 22-story tower emerged in 2014 on the former parking lot at the corner of Hope St. and W 8th St. The building has 290 luxury condos and some top-notch amenities such as a fitness center, an outdoor pool with cabanas, a rooftop terrace, and more.

There’s a lot more to see, so we invite you to check out RENTCafé’s blog post for more slideshows. These are free to embed on your own website!
