Not content with a striking Concert Hall, architect Frank Gehry plans to rework 9 acres of downtown Los Angeles to "to develop the beginning of a community that has the body language of a community and has the scale of a community." The NY Times says:

Construction of Phase 1 is expected to begin in December, with a projected completion date of 2009. The entire nine-acre Grand Avenue project, which is to unfold in three phases by 2014, will ultimately include 400,000 square feet of retail space, the 275-room hotel and up to 2,600 residences. The goal is to create a new, tightly woven community downtown as well as a fresh destination for the area’s 17 million residents and the 24 million visitors it has each year.
