Feature film production in LA jumps to record level

Reflecting the popularity of California’s revised film incentive program, location shoots in the Los Angeles area jumped 6.2 percent last year, led by record feature film production, an industry tracker said Tuesday.

During 2016, feature film production increased 12 percent from the previous year to 4,865 shoot days.

That makes 2016 the strongest year for this sector since California introduced its first film incentive program in 2009, according to FilmL.A. Inc., the official film permitting office that represents the city and county of L.A.

New renderings of glitzy Century Plaza hotel and residences

The $2.5-billion Century Plaza is a highly anticipated project that some are hoping will boost the walkability of Century City, which is, right now, fairly pedestrian unfriendly) with the addition of a public plaza that will extend to Avenue of the Stars. The project is planned near a future stop along the Purple Line subway, so making the area appealing to people on foot is important.

The redevelopment of the 1966 Century Plaza Hotel got underway in the summer and will include refurbishing the hotel, getting rid of about half of the hotel’s 726 rooms, and adding 63 residences. The older hotel’s interior renovation will be handled by Gensler.

The future five-star hotel will be operated by Fairmont Hotels, which operates fancy and often historic hotels nationally and internationally. (Their Fairmont Santa Monica is planning a Cesar Pelli redesign, though it’s been beset by delays.)

First Steps Toward Del Rey Creative Office Campus

Soil remediation is now underway at a former Teledyne Technologies facility in Del Rey, marking the first step towards the construction of a new creative office complex on the property.

Continental Development Corporation and Mar Ventures, Inc. have teamed up to build the Alla Road Creative Campus, which would rise from the six-acre site near the western terminus of the Marina Freeway.

The project, designed by architecture firm Gensler, would consist of three two-story structures featuring over 150,000 square feet of office space, in addition to parking for up to 600 vehicles in a standalone garage and a surface lot. The campus would also feature a central one-acre green space.

Proposed Boutique Hotel Takes a Step Forward on Abbott Kinney

Plans for a boutique hotel on Venice's trendy Abbott Kinney Boulevard continue to move ahead, with the release of an initial study by the Los Angeles Department of City Planning.

The Venice Place Project - which would occupy most of the block bounded by Abbott Kinney, Broadway Street, Electric and Westminster Avenues - calls for the construction of a trio of freestanding buildings containing three restaurants, office space, retail, four apartments and an 80-room hotel. The new construction would occur around the perimeter of an existing sculpture garden and the Joe's and Primitivo restaurants, which would be preserved.

An official website describes features such as an automated parking garage and various rooftop gardens and decks. Restaurant tenants will include Casa Linda, Felix and a new location for Hal's Bar & Grill.

The Covina City Council has approved a project to build 117 new, three-story townhomes and a transit center for buses on Citrus Avenue at the site of a closed Kmart.

Dubbed Covina Forward, the project, located at 1162 N. Citrus Ave. will also include a community and business center. The project site covers 10.66 acres at Citrus and Covina Boulevard and includes three properties, including a former day care and the Kmart, which closed two years ago. The property is surrounded by residential neighborhoods and a commercial shopping center to the south.

Foothill Transit will operate the center, which will provide bays for up to six buses. There will be about 380 parking spaces in a parking garage for commuters using existing local bus lines that service transportation to Metro’s Gold Line and the Metrolink station. The center will also facilitate a new express bus into downtown Los Angeles.

Los Angeles 2024 chairman admits awarding two Olympics together is "an interesting concept"

Los Angeles 2024 chairman Casey Wasserman has claimed the idea of awarding both the 2024 and 2028 Olympic and Paralympic Games at the International Olympic Committee (IOC) session in Lima in September "is an interesting concept".

The IOC has been actively investigating the possibility of awarding Paris the 2024 Olympics and Los Angeles 2028 at its Session in Lima on September 13.

Earlier this month, Los Angeles and the United States Olympic Committee claimed they have no interest in bidding for the 2028 Olympic and Paralympic Games if they are not awarded the 2024 edition.

But they have not ruled out the possibility of hosting the 2028 Olympics and Paralympics if they are awarded them without having to bid again.

"We have been clear on this point," Wasserman said during a live question and answer session on Facebook today.

George Lucas Museum of Narrative Art Finds A New Hope in Los Angeles
Quote:
When news broke late last year that George Lucas was searching for a permanent home for his planned Museum of Narrative Art in either San Francisco or Los Angeles, film buffs and Sci-Fi enthusiasts alike were left to wonder which city would be graced with the presence of the legendary director and screenwriter's legacy project. Each location seemed to come with its own equally significant merits and shortcomings.

New House of Blues Anaheim location drops in iconic water tower

While the new House of Blues Anaheim at Anaheim GardenWalk is still under pretty heavy construction just five weeks before its grand opening, the media was welcomed Wednesday morning for a sneak peek at what’s to come as well as witness the placement of a 4-ton steel water tower, the company’s signature icon, atop the new building.

“No House of Blues would be complete without a water tower,” said Ron Bension, president of House of Blues Entertainment.

The previous House of Blues location, dubbed the Mouse House because it was nestled within Downtown Disney, where it opened in 2001, did not include a water tower or a Foundation Room/VIP Club, both staples at the other locations throughout the country.

Elon Musk wants to dig a tunnel to ease L.A. traffic.

Elon Musk is apparently turning his focus from the heavens to the Earth, proposing on Twitter that he plans to dig a tunnel that could reduce Los Angeles traffic.

The often outspoken Chief Executive of SpaceX and Tesla Motors Inc. last month told his 6 million Twitter followers: “Traffic is driving me nuts. Am going to build a tunnel boring machine and just start digging....” He dubbed the project “The Boring Company” and added “I am actually going to do this.” Early Wednesday, he backed that up, tweeting that he had made “exciting progress on the tunnel front” and intends to “start digging in a month or so.”

Considering Musk’s ability to turn science fiction into reality — he has, after all, landed a rocket upright and made electric cars cool — it’s tough to know whether this is a serious proposal or a quip from a tech world luminary who has previously suggested that reality is not real.

When asked the location of the tunnel, Musk tweeted that it will be “Starting across from my desk at SpaceX. Crenshaw and the 105 Freeway, which is 5 mins from LAX.” Tunnels generally have two ends, but Musk offered only one, heightening the intrigue.

Hey Elon, you know whats cooler than a tunnel to work? A Supertall of your very own for SpaceX/Tesla/SolarCity in the heart of downtown!! You could helicopter from the westside to your very own Helipad and never have to worry about traffic!!

I'm thinking oh... 1400' tall at the current Angels Knoll site. So what do you say?

Several improvements and changes in the works for the Orange Line

•The first project involves getting the Orange Line through intersections more quickly, either by building grade separations (i.e. bridges or underpasses) or other improvements.

A technical study is now underway and is looking at five different intersections as candidates for a grade separation (Fulton/Burbank, Woodman/Oxnard, Van Nuys, Sepulveda and Reseda). Once a final study report is approved by the Metro Board of Directors, this multiyear construction project would be built to rail standards to make it easier to convert the Orange Line to rail. Other improvements are also being analyzed, including crossing gates and traffic signal upgrades. Groundbreaking is planned for 2019.

•The second project is more long-term and will convert the Orange Line to light rail. The groundbreaking on that project at this time is proposed for 2051 although Metro continues to explore ways to accelerate the larger Measure M projects. I know that getting your mind wrapped around ‘2051’ probably isn’t super easy and/or super fun. But it’s worth considering that the more near-term upgrades should shave minutes off Orange Line rides and make it easier to convert the line to rail.
