Drones Descend on 5900 Wilshire


You’ve seen them fly through fireworks, across perfect PCH beaches, and over East L.A., but today, drones are descending on this magazine’s home turf. This afternoon, July 28, a deluge of hover cams will levitate around 5900 Wilshire Boulevard—or so an office memorandum says.

It’d be reasonable to think they’ll be up there getting a bird’s eye view of LACMA’s Urban Light, but that’s not the mission. The Ratkovich Company, who owns our 32-story tower, has deployed them to update their stash of marketing images. Fans of the food truck army lining the south side of Wilshire needn’t worry—the drones will fly no lower than 20 feet, so go ahead and enjoy those tacos in peace.
