Reports are that the Broad collection will go to a new building in DT SM near the Civic Center and Courthouse. This will house 2000 of Eli's best pieces.

If true, this and the completion of the Expo line and SM Place open air shopping area will make a continuous urban expansion along the coast from Wilshire at least to Rose in Venice. Putting a trolley along Ocean would cap off a very strong tourist area, since the hotels, restaurants, cafes, views and shopping are already there.

All the more reason to expedite the Purple Line to the sea.

not now, for sure; it's mostly 1950's civic buildings and parking lots. But immediately to the north is SM Place, opening this summer, which will be a conduit for the 3rd St. pedestrian traffic. You then get to the Sears building and parking lot, which have potential, being right at the Expo Line terminus; the freeway (which may get covered) and the Civic Center, which is presumably getting a major piece of architecture and a great art collection.

From there, there are large hotels and condo's on the coast and the busy Main St. shopping and nightlife area. It's not hard to picture a lot of activity here if and when Expo and Purple show up, accompanied by the natural (although highly controlled) growth that will occur.

Fanciful power plants envisioned off the Santa Monica Pier

If we told you a power plant was being built off the coast of Santa Monica, mere yards from the Santa Monica Pier, you'd think Santa Monica leaders had lost their minds. But what if that power plant was also designed as a public art piece?

That’s the goal of the 2016 Land Art Generator Initiative, says the Santa Monica Lookout. The competition not only puts a focus on creating new forms of sustainable energy, it also challenges designers to add some artistry to the normally drab and foreboding appearance of power plants.

Santa Monica Proper Hotel Begins Construction

The Kor Group, a Los Angeles-based real estate firm, has announced the start of construction for a luxury lifestyle hotel in Downtown Santa Monica.

The Santa Monica Proper, which is being developed in partnership with landowner Alex Gorby and the Merchant Banking Division of Goldman Sachs, will feature 271 guest rooms at 7th Street and Wilshire Boulevard, just a few blocks from the Pacific Ocean.

Kor's project includes the renovation of a 1928 Spanish Colonial Revival building along Wilshire, as well as the construction of an adjacent building that blends with the historic architecture. In addition to the guest rooms, the buildings would also feature, 7,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space, 8event space, a rooftop lounge and a swimming pool

The hotel, which is being designed by Howard Laks Architects, is expected by late 2018 or early 2019.

Work Underway at Santa Monica's Trailer Park Redevelopment
Multifamily residential complex rises near Expo Line Station.

The Millennium East Village, which is rising from a 3.5-acre site at 2930 Colorado Avenue, will consist of a series of five-story buildings featuring 374 residential units, coming in studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom floor plans. Approved plans call for 38 of the apartments to be set aside as affordable housing, as well as 25,000 square feet of commercial space along Colorado Boulevard.

Renderings of the development, which is being designed by the Cuningham Group, portray modern buildings, intersected with walkways and open space. Cunignham's website describes the Village as a "fluid, interconnected campus," reconnecting a sprawling development site with the surrounding street grid.

Colorful structures are a great way to add some bright colors to your space.
