SOME OBSERVATIONS FROM A COMMUNITY MEMBER:
There have been some changes at the station. LAPD is again storing some equipment in the station's lower parking level -- newer items with fresh paint and LAPD badging. There are now two dumpsters on the lower level, and one on the top.
The biggest change is that construction manager Perkins + Will Architects have installed their on-site construction office at the east edge of the upper level. Their office is pretty impregnable to vandalism -- looking very much like a converted steel cargo container. The office is connected by multiple lines to the main building structure, but [as of April 2] also has its own modern generator located right next to it on the south side.
I didn't see any vehicles or on-going activity at the station. But, unfortunately, the presence of the connected and powered construction office is strong indication that P+W is gearing-up to begin the construction process.
I sure hope we get that public hearing in the very near future.
