It's been a couple months and the shopping center at 8000 Sunset looks as if there's been virtually zero progress. The old Buzz space is still empty with no signs of Starbucks coming in. Trader Joe's space is in the same state of undone-ness. The only difference seems to be signage over the storefront windows where Pinkberry will eventually set up shop. Still no word on anything coming into the old Virgin Megastore space. In high contrast to the bustling center it used to be, last Saturday, it was very quiet and nearly empty, but for a few people going to workout.
