A long-delayed real estate development at the heart of Sunset Strip has finally emerged as builders step on the gas along West Hollywood's famous thoroughfare up and down the boulevard.

The parade begins at 11 a.m. at 26th Street and San Vicente Boulevard, with grand marshal Paul Moyer leading the way.

Los Angeles' most famous hot dog bun needs a roll. Trouble is, Tail O' the Pup owner Dennis Blake doesn't have a place to roll it to. The landmark hot dog stand that resembles a mustard-slathered wienie-in-a-bun -- featured in movies and music videos and considered an important piece of L.A. architecture -- has sat on wheels and been covered with a tarp in a Torrance warehouse since being evicted five years ago from its longtime home. Blake badly wants to return the Pup to its chowhound followers.

The rap-rock leviathan Linkin Park hasn't played in its L.A. hometown since a small May 2012 benefit show at the House of Blues. Today, the group announced that it will end that absence with a headlining turn at this year's Sunset Strip Music Festival. "We started our career playing clubs on the Strip. It's a thrill to be back where it all began," lead singer Chester Bennington said in a statement. The band's fifth and most recent album, "Living Things," topped album charts when it was released last summer, and it was generally praised for its more thoughtful mix of electronics and emotive hard rock.

Brentwood-area residents are rallying to raise funds for the upkeep of San Vicente Boulevard's cherished coral trees, one of which toppled over this month after succumbing to what appeared to be a root-rotting fungus. The city of Los Angeles planted the trees after World War II to replace the discontinued Red Line trolley tracks but has limited funds to care for them. For decades, neighborhood residents have taken on much of the cost of pruning the trees, which are distinctive for their orange-scarlet blooms, twisting limbs and spreading canopies.

Los Angeles City Council members called on transit officials Wednesday to study a shorter bus lane project for Wilshire Boulevard, but they refused to officially support the 5.4-mile option, which would eliminate the Westside leg of the planned route. Council members voted 11 to 2 to add the alternative to an ongoing environmental review of a 7.7-mile busway system planned by the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority and the Los Angeles Department of Transportation.

You recently reported about Brentwood and all the wonderful things Councilman Marvin Braude has done for San Vicente Boulevard. This is astounding to me, since Mr. Braude's district includes the area on Van Nuys Boulevard from Magnolia Boulevard up to Sherman Way, one of the most unsightly areas in the Valley. I have lived here for over 40 years and have done most of my shopping on Van Nuys Boulevard, until the last few years when the nice shops left and we have nothing but tacky stores with tacky signs and merchandise displayed on the sidewalks.

When Rick Caruso first bought a triangular lot near the intersection of Burton Way and La Cienega and San Vincente boulevards nearly 15 years ago, he had yet to make his name as the baron of developments such as the Grove and Americana at Brand. The property has sat undeveloped ever since. But in the last few years, the area around it has been on an upswing -- buoyed in part by the success of Caruso's Grove project to the east. Shops and restaurants along 3rd Street have become regional draws.
