Midnight Movie: Hollywood & Western's Not Quite Right
A Metro station. Councilman Garcetti's office. The gateway to Thai Town. New development. The Hollywood & Highland ownership, The CIM Group's involvement (they were just given a princely loan from The City for another project too.)

More on The Battle for Hollywood & Western over at Curbed.
