DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES - Portland-based developer Homer Williams and his partner Dame Associates plan to break ground in March on a 393-room, $120 million project at Olympic Boulevard and Francisco Street. The single building would hold two Marriott brands, a Courtyard Suites and a Residence Inn. Williams said in January that the project was 85% financed and is on track to secure all of its funding within 45 days. The edifice across from the Convention Center headquarters hotel is slated to open in 2014. Officials have said it is not dependent on Farmers Field, and will go forward regardless of whether the stadium materializes.

South Park to Get 32-Story Tower

by Ryan Vaillancourt, Staff Writer | Posted: Thursday, March 8, 2012 1:22 pm


http://brighamyen.com/

DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES - Onni Group, a Vancouver-based developer that last year bought two Downtown properties, is quietly finalizing plans to build a 32-story apartment tower at Ninth and Olive streets.

The proposed $100 million development at 888 S. Olive St. would rise on a plot entitled in 2009 by LaeRoc Funds. Onni bought the site along with the adjacent Coast Savings Building from LaeRoc last year for $16.5 million.

The so-far-unnamed 283-unit tower is currently in the plan check phase of the permitting process and is on pace to break ground by August, said Chris Evans, Onni’s executive vice president. He said financing is in place to start construction, but declined to specify how the firm will fund the project.

Onni last year opened a five-person office in the Coast Savings Building, which will remain an office complex. The company also has offices in Chicago and Phoenix.

As reported by Brigham Yen, LA city permits were filed recently (12/15/11) on a downtown parking lot, located at the south-west corner of 8th & Hope, for a ground-up 22-story mixed-use high-rise with 290 apartment units and ground floor retail/office.

The site was originally planned for development by CIM group, who according to Brigham Yen sold the property to Wood Partners in 2008 – however according to title reports, the property is still owned by CIM

In order for AEG to build their Farmers Field Stadium, they must demolish the West Hall of the LA Convention Center; and according to their agreement with the city, they must replace the demolished portion. Yesterday AEG and Architect Populous, presented designs to the Ad Hoc city committee for the 20,000 square foot Convention Center wing, which will replace the West Hall. The new facility would rise one story above Pico Blvd; connecting the existing South Hall to the proposed stadium, making the entire Convention Center one congruent building (Current Convention Center is split between two separate spaces). Pouria Abbassi, General Manager of the LA Convention Center said, “This is 21st century design…This places us in the top-tier to be able to capture those electronic shows (referring to E3, a large & popular gaming convention)…E3′s booking agents prefer to host in one large space”, he says.

While AEG is making progress on their design plans, the overall goal of building a downtown stadium is dependent on them securing an NFL team.

DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES - Work continues on a 210-unit City West apartment complex by Vancouver, Wash.-based Holland Partner Group. The company broke ground on the project at 1111 Wilshire Blvd. last June. The $60 million effort on the site of a former parking lot will be a seven-story building with more than 7,750 square feet of retail space. It will contain studio to three-bedroom units and an underground parking garage will hold 302 cars. Company officials said the building is expected to open in 2013. The project is near Glo, Holland Partner Group's first apartment complex in the area.

I agree. The Hollywood sign is a historical landmark. It should be protected. They're going to f*ck it.

Office tower plans scrapped

Quote:
Wilshire Grand Hotel Going Single Tower, Ditching Offices


The Wilshire Grand hotel has already closed, and Korean Air has gotten approvals to demolish the building and build a two-tower replacement with 560 hotel rooms and office space. Major curveball: the Downtown News reports today that Korean Air now plans to build just one tower with 900 hotel rooms and "a diminished office component." (But that means fewer walls to for "architectural lighting"/ads!) They've also switched out their development partner, ditching Thomas Properties Group for Martin Project Management, which is headed up by Chris Martin of the project's architecture firm, AC Martin (the DN points out that TPG was supposed to have an ownership stake in the new Wilshire Grand).

...

Martin tells the paper that the new project should only require administrative changes and won't need to go through another lengthy approval process. In fact, he says that demolition should begin this summer and construction should start in spring 2013, as originally planned. Korean Air decided to make the switch because of Downtown's high office vacancy rate and the "currently hot Downtown hotel market."

Broad Museum Ready to Rise

Broad Museum Ready to Rise


Soon there will be white honeycombs sprouting on Grand Avenue--the project recently obtained construction permits to build the actual museum part of the Broad Museum, reports the Downtown News (the work that's taken place over the past 10 months has been on the three-level parking garage that serves as the museum's pedestal). The permits were obtained a week ago and construction workers are already erecting the $100 million Diller, Scofidio + Renfro-designed museum that will open late next year. Click here to see the progress. [Downtown News]

Downtown LA’s Marriott Courtyard and Residence Inn Readies for Ground Breaking

Posted on March 19, 2012 by Brigham Yen | 8 Comments
Ground breaking draws near for Marriott’s newest 23-story tower and dual hotel brands, Courtyard and Residence Inn, with blue construction fencing put up around the development site across from JW Marriott and Ritz-Carlton at LA Live
First announced almost a year ago in April 2011 that a brand new 23-story Marriott Courtyard and Residence Inn tower (with 393 rooms) would be built in the burgeoning South Park district, construction fencing was erected recently this month to cordon off the future hotel development site.
Located at Olympic Blvd and Francisco St–directly across the street from JW Marriott and Ritz-Carlton at LA Live–the new hotel tower will add much needed capacity in a growing district of Downtown LA that may eventually get an expanded convention center and brand new Farmers Field NFL football stadium (with rumors of the Rams as the returning LA team).
Ground breaking is still anticipated to begin next month in April 2012.

Westwood's Mann Theater Replacement Now a Mixed-User



Tonight, the city planning department's Westwood Community Design Review Board reviews plans for the long-delayed replacement of the former Mann National Theater at Gayley and Lindbrook in Westwood (rendering above). Chances are things will go well, as the project is earning fans in the neighborhood, according to Sheri Bonstelle, attorney for developer Ron Simms. Formerly designed as a one-story retail establishment, the new plans include 34 apartments above 5,000 square feet of retail and underground parking. The project recently received unanimous approval from both the Westwood Neighborhood Council and the Westwood Community Council. If everything goes well tonight, there will be another hearing in June and a hearing in August in front of the West LA Planning Commission. Bonstelle says Simms is eager to start work and will get moving as soon as entitlements are handed over.
