I thought is was a covered water reservoir. But then again I have not been up there in a long time.

Good call on the big google in the sky. If it was a veledrome, someone flying over looking for pools to skate would have seen it and since skateboarding and motorcycles go hand in hand these days it would be a Hollywood hipster mecca.:)

Well, guaranteed the owners of the house bought it for some reason... Perhaps a knock on the door with a reasonable excuse might get you a closer look (and a go-around?), I'd be pestering those people for a race around the track, 4-shore!

I don't think that's a track. It looks like a tar roof with patches. Look at 5 o'clock and you see a roof of some sort. And what appear to be roof vents at assorted places around it.

Seems like a funny shape for a building to me.

It is a cistern, build by the Department of Water and Power, for the L.A. Fire department's snorkel helicopters to use for fighting brush fires in the area, rather that to fly to the ocean. It doesn't appear to have been finished
