The project began in 2005 when developer Mark Borman saw potential in a dilapidated structure at 940 E. Second St. He acquired the building and, with the aid of architect Rocky Rockefeller, turned the derelict edifice into 38 gorgeous three-story residences. Although the proj- ect stalled during the recession, CanyonJohnson Urban Funds stepped in to finish it, and Borman remains involved. The condominiums are filled with natural light, and original brick walls play against top-of-the line kitchen set-ups. The units also offer a level of privacy unusual for multi-family buildings.

The event which launched in October 2010, and recurred last April and October, did something magical: It pulled cars off more than seven miles of Los Angeles roads, and for a few hours gave the power to the cyclists, pedestrians, rollerbladers, families pushing strollers and anyone else not in a motorized vehicle. Although CicLAvia spreads from East L. A. through Hollywood, much of the action takes place in Downtown, and the heart of the event is in the Civic Center, where tens of thousands of people seize the streets in the shadow of City Hall.

That began to change when the first part of a sevenyear, $ 135 million renovation came online in 2010, but it was nothing compared to the opening of the Dinosaur Hall last summer. An instant hit, the 14,000-square-foot permanent exhibition doubled the previous dinosaur display space. Now it thrills kids, adults and paleontologists with more than 300 fossils and 20 full body re-cre-ations, including a trio of Tyrannosaurus rex specimens. Crowds gawk at the longnecked Mamenchisaurus, the imposing Triceratops and the fossilized whales, turtles and giant reptiles. The exhibit is astounding, the crowds are coming, and thanks to these lovely bones, the Natural History Museum is more alive than ever. A lot of things are import...

Eighth St. — but also for what it prevented: a long-term spot of Downtown blight. The formerly rundown seven-story edifice was shuttered in 2003, and some quirky land-use covenants made it unlikely to be activated until at least 2015. Then Downtown developer Izek Shomof stepped up. He bought the 1906 property, spent 18 months upgrading it and reopened it as low-income housing. He also put a D-Town Burger Bar on the ground floor, which both illuminated the building and created a sense of active connection with its neighbors, Colori Kitchen and the Golden Gopher bar.

The museum opened in late 2008, and under Executive Director Bob Santelli has hosted a range of exhibits on artists including Jimi Hendrix, Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson, Bob Marley and George Harrison. The $ 34 million museum’s permanent displays impress with an array of interactive exhibits. Not to be missed are the public programs, where some of the biggest names in all styles of music — everyone from Stevie Nicks to Flava Flav — come together to talk and do a few songs before crowds of about 200.

Opera Plácido Domingo and a 99% Tale Dominate the Stage at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion by Marc Porter Zasada contributing writer pirate-ruler against the“ patricians,” and Boccanegra struggles to hold the city together. Yes, it’s convoluted, but in the production directed by Elijah Moshinsky it becomes a retelling of the story of Job, with a timeless meaning. Certainly, the scene in which the chorus of plebes comes to“ occupy” the Senate has a genuine poignancy for today. S ometimes, in opera as in life, it all just comes together. So it is with Simon Boccanegra , which opened recently at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion and runs through March 4. The production originally mounted by London’s Royal Opera House gets a head start with the great Plácido Domingo in the title role. Fortunately, most of the complex elements that make up an opera — orchestra, chorus, principals, conductor, costumes — are also done right. The result i...
