    BEVERLY:
    This new and colorful condo development on Beverly Blvd has been trying to sell units for quite some time, but that fake owl is new to us. Hullo, little buddy. Good luck scaring the pigeons and bringing in the buyers. [Curbed Staff]

    LA RIVER: There's a big press event called the "Mingling of the Waters" that will happen on the LA River tomorrow. Here's the description: "A ceremony to join “sister rivers” in the international movement for urban river restoration—the Los Angeles River and the Isar River of Munich, Germany. Water from the Isar has been brought to Los Angeles by a delegation here to share their successful river restoration experience with the Los Angeles River community. Munich has “re-naturized” more than 8 miles of the Isar, once encased in concrete and now providing beaches, meadows, bikepaths—even surfing!—right through the center of the city." Councilmember Tom LaBonge, reps from Friends of the Los Angeles River, and overseas guests expected. [Curbed Inbox]

    MINGLING OF THE WATERS” CEREMONY AT THE L.A. RIVER
    Thursday, October 2 at 11 a.m

    WHAT: A ceremony to join “sister rivers” in the international movement
    for urban river restoration—the Los Angeles River and the Isar
    River of Munich, Germany. Water from the Isar has been
    brought to Los Angeles by a delegation here to share their
    successful river restoration experience with the Los Angeles
    River community. Munich has “re-naturized” more than 8 miles
    of the Isar, once encased in concrete and now providing
    beaches, meadows, bikepaths—even surfing!—right through the
    center of the city.

    WHO: Councilmember Tom LaBonge, Friends of the Los Angeles River
    and other key players in the L.A. River restoration community.
    Representing the Isar River: Hep Monatzeder, Deputy Mayor
    (Green Party); Ralf Wulf, Head of the Dept. of Engineering and
    Waterways; Dr. Klaus Arzet, Head of the State Office of Water
    Management; Ulrich Illing, Head of the Dept. of Urban Planning;
    and Daniella Schaufuss, Isar Plan Manager.

    WHEN: Thursday, October 2, 2008 at 11:00 a.m.

    WHERE: Guardians of the River Gate, the Los Angeles River at Los Feliz
    Blvd. (northwest corner, park at Eatz parking lot, ascend rise at
    south end of lot).

    WHY: As Los Angeles continues to marshall the political will and
    funding to restore the Los Angeles River, it is both useful and
    inspiring to look at examples of other urban rivers brought back
    from degradation. The Isar delegation will present a video and
    talk at a free public forum at 6 pm on Thursday evening at the
    auditorium at the DWP, 111 N. Hope St., tour L.A. River Master
    Plan “opportunity sites” on Friday, Oct. 3, and will receive a
    Rivvie award at Friends of the LA River’s annual RioFest!, to be
    held Saturday, Oct. 4 from 5 – 10 pm on the Sixth Street Bridge
    spanning the L.A. River in downtown L.A.
