For four years, the half-completed hulk of a Target store has loomed over Sunset Boulevard, a project halted by litigation brought by neighborhood groups opposed to the building’s height.

As a flurry of development brought new restaurants, apartments and residents to Hollywood, the construction site remained unchanged. It inspired the Target Husk social media accounts, which post plaintive-sounding messages on Facebook and Twitter in the voice of the unfinished project.

Now, work is slated to begin again. A California appeals court Thursday sided with the city of Los Angeles, reversing a lower court’s ruling that stopped construction.
