nice to see LA go vertical and urban. to me LA has been one of the least desirable cities to visit even though it has so much to offer. how do you get around the city as a tourist? is public transport even an good option?

Not to mention buses...



(and those are just Metro buses. Not counting various other agencies).

Plus there's taxi's, Amtrak, MetroLink, Uber and the like. So if a tourist can't get around and read a map, then you shouldn't be a tourist. Lol.

Thank you to our friend from Chicago. Additionally, LA has a bike program, with lanes and rentals...not quite to the extent of Chicago's, but it is ever expanding.

Slowly but surely the architectural quality of new construction in LA is improving. Still lower tier, local and west coast architectural firms though.

This could be huge news! Per The Real Deal, CBS is putting their historic Television City studio lot on sale.

Quote:
“This building has enough concrete in it to build 28 miles of four-lane highway,” Edward R. Murrow proclaimed in a 1953 CBS special about “Television City,” the network’s mammoth complex in Los Angeles’ Fairfax District.

Over the next six decades, TV City would became an iconic venue that hosted shows such as “The Price is Right,” “All in the Family,” and “Dancing with the Stars.”

But its status as a center of entertainment and culture may be in flux. CBS Corporation has been in discussions with brokerages to shop the complex at 7800 Beverly Boulevard, The Real Deal has learned.

After interviewing more than five firms for the roughly 25-acre property on Beverly Boulevard and Fairfax Avenue — which has about 1 million square feet of studio and office space, including eight stages — CBS recently narrowed the search down to two, sources said.

The network hasn’t indicated if it intends to vacate the property entirely, sources said. The nature of what will be marketed — a full sale, a sale-leaseback or a ground lease — remains unclear.

Representatives for CBS did not return multiple requests for comment.

CBS subleases much of the space at TV City to other production outfits, sources said. The network may be looking to consolidate its own operations at its Studio City campus at 4024 Radford Avenue, they said.

Though the discussions are in a preliminary stage, interested buyers are said to be circling. At least two major developers looked to talk with CBS once chatter about the broker interviews began to spread, sources said.

TV City does not appear to be entitled for new development. The campus, designed by architect Gin Wong at Pereira & Luckman, was built in 1952 on the former site of Gilmore Stadium. CBS acquired the land from the A.F. Gilmore Company for $1.2 million in 1949.
Although the nature of the offering isn't quite clear yet, nor has the question of entitlements been answered, developers are rightly gunning for the opportunity to take TV City off of CBS' hands. For those who aren't familiar with the site, it's in the Fairfax District, abutting the Grove, Pan Pacific Park, and busy stretches of Beverly Blvd and Fairfax Ave.




CBS TV City Site by Marshall Knight, on Flickr

It's smack-dab in the center of one of the most affluent and walkable parts of the city -- honestly after the LACC golf courses, I can't think of another large site that would be as enticing for a developer.

And on a personal note, I have been hoping for something like this to happen for a while (I live right across the street). Currently, TV City creates an impassible superblock, that anyone navigating the neighborhood has to circle around. The fenced-in parking lots abutting Fairfax, Beverly kill the street life for nearly a quarter mile, and the storage area on The Grove Drive across from the Park is equally depressing.

I know it's a lot to hope for, but in a best-case scenario, here's what I'd like to see someone propose:
  • Preservation of the historic headquarters building.
  • Mixed-users with ground floor retail and a few floors of apartments along Beverly and Fairfax (comparable in scale to the Fairfax Theater mixed-use project).
  • Pedestrian paseos (or at least extensions of the streets that currently dead-end at the North and West edges of the site) to create throughways from all sides. If possible, even an extension of the Grove trolley through the development.
  • Pedestrian improvements along The Grove Drive with wider sidewalks and a crossing (hell, make it a grand entrance) into Pan Pacific Park.
