Mackenzie Eisenhower of TWS posted about it a while back. Back in February he mentioned there was a 3 month window until it got torn down. Itís now early May. Either itís happening in the next few weeks, or construction plans were paused. I wouldnít count on it being there for much longer though

i'd imagine the city isn't that interested in incorporating any skate-friendly design without any specific financial backing.
it would be cool to see some part of it memorialized or repurposed, but i'm not so sure that would happen

Hey, Montreal did it with Big-O... and LA has to have some idea that skateboarding plays a role in its global image.

This video at the end also says construction is unlikely until 2023. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WnZicXXeZk4

Also, this press release from one of the developers hints at community NIMBY-ism already happening (in my opinion; maybe there was a good reason). Maybe if enough NIMBYs advocate for the stage or ledges to be repurposed, it will happen. https://abodecommunities.org/avalonbay-abode-communities-team-selected-to-develop-west-la-civic-center-site/

LA City Councilman Mike Bonin noted that an extensive community outreach process lies ahead for the project, adding that the plans for West LA Commons already have been refined to reflect community feedback by scaling back the originally proposed 23-story tower to no higher than 8 stories.

What will happen to the West LA Courthouse Skate Plaza and the Bandshell?
While the Civic Center is not an officially designated skateboarding facility, such street skateboarding activity has been decriminalizedand is expected to remain so. There will be stakeholder discussion regarding the Bandshell and desired amenities for the community open space.

This would be a great opportunity for a final "Bust or Bail" type event before they actually lock the campus down, but who wants to see NBDs of manuals?

The outledge at the entrance would be cool.

I wish I didn't have to look at your sig in every thread tbh. That shit is annoying and usually so are your posts.

Better yet, get Berra and Koston to move all of the obstacles into another warehouse. Berrics 3.0.
