I don't know if this has been posted elsewhere on TC, but I just heard (from Alison Martino of VIntage LA) that what little remained of the Islander building, and more importantly the palm trees and vegetation (which stood out like a sore thumb, saying "there used to be a Tiki restaurant here!") were all leveled about a month ago. A medical building is going up in its place. Too bad they couldn't incorporate the palm trees into the new building. If you want to see the last shots of the trees and building, check Google Maps because it's still there.
