Darn it OP, I wish you had posted this earlier. I would have lined up for one of the 300 LAX commemorative coins. What does the coin say? "The White Zone Is For Loading And Unloading, No Parking"? "Please Leave The Keys In The Car"?
Submit your proposed language for the coin....

I didn't find out myself about this until yesterday eve. Sadly somebody at LAWA missed the opportunity for more press & better attendance or??!
I visited and posted a trip report with photos (see this link):

The spider renovations have been going of for years, or so it seems. Was still looking incomplete in May, so they finished very recently. It is an iconic building, probably worth $12 million just in movie fees.
