Sounds like this isn’t quite a “go” yet, but I sure hope it happens. Curbed LA reports that these 18 Barbara Bestor-designed units, ranging in size from 1,300 to 1,650 sq. ft., would be built on a one-acre site on an Echo Park hilltop. The development is called “Blackbirds,” and represents the kind of urban planning that I very much support. Density is good, especially when done the right way, i.e. it’s appropriate to the surroundings, helps people “use less,” and gets them closer to where they work.

The bonus is, anything designed by Barbara Bestor is going to look awesome.

Can’t yet say what these will cost when (and assuming that) they’re completed. But my best guess is that Blackbirds is going to fly — and sell quickly. Stay tuned.
