Variety Tower joins the skyline

Variety letters
The Variety name went up in giant letters today on the former People's Bank tower in the Miracle Mile stretch of Wilshire. The Hollywood trade moves into the top floor at the end of the month, joining Los Angeles Magazine in the tallest media headquarters on the boulevard. More photos at Franklin Avenue, the blog.
