For law enforcement in LA and other parts of Southern California, a shift in focus and more street patrols amid coronavirus fears

Los Angeles police Detective Brent Hopkins spends most of his days tracking down thieves who steal cars. It involves following up on leads, talking to victims and watching security camera footage.

But this week, he’ll trade in his suit for his old uniform, along with many of his co-workers. The last time he wore h...

In Panorama City, quake-jolted ‘eyesore’ rises anew as residential tower

When she first laid eyes on the 13-story Panorama Tower along Van Nuys Boulevard, Panorama City resident Cheryl Compton thought it “looked like a bomb had gone off.” The windows were broken, trash and rubble were strewn nearby and graffiti covered the mid-century style former office building. In the quarter-century since the Panorama Tower was rocked by the 1994 Northridge Earthquake, the building had sat empty, despite scattered proposals — including a short-lived idea to house a police station...

Ad Age 2019 A-List No. 8: Anomaly

When it rains it pours at Anomaly. Not just in new wins or the evolution of its internal culture. Last summer it happened quite literally: On June 28, the 15 thousand-gallon water tower perched atop Anomaly’s offices in New York’s SoHo neighborhood burst an elbow pipe and flooded the agency’s tenth and eleventh floors.  Nimble by design, the agency innovated on the fly: The two floors were evacuated for months, with 110 employees displaced. About half the staff was able to find a space on other...

A monorail down the 405? Sherman Oaks residents submit their own Sepulveda Pass plan to little avail

President’s Day weekend was all it took for a Sherman Oaks engineer and architect duo to draft a mass transit concept from Van Nuys to LAX that they think gives Metro’s own proposals a run for their money. The big idea? A monorail running above the 405 freeway median — straight down the middle — that could be cheaper and easier to build while minimizing impacts on neighborhood streets from the South San Fernando Valley to the Westside. After Metro revealed its updated Sepulveda Transit Corridor ...
