Downtown L.A's High-rise Housing Boom

The latest high-rise building boom to hit downtown Los Angeles is focusing on housing, not office, space.

"The building boom marks the fourth time since World War II that a spate of construction has altered the downtown landscape. But although previous booms focused on commercial space, this one is different: The vast majority of the new high-rise space is for housing."
