Back in July, the Los Angeles Times announced that Downtown's long awaited Federal Courthouse had finally broken ground. The 10-story edifice, designed by Skidmore, Owings and Merrill (SOM), will rise from the corner of 1st and Broadway. SOM and Clark Construction want to make sure that everyone can see the $400 million project under construction, so they installed a webcam across the street. There's not much to see yet, but the lot will eventually be home to 24 courtrooms and 32 judge's chambers. Completion is scheduled for 2016.
