Tales From NIMBYTown

Here Are Designs For Wyndham Santa Monica's 3 Controversial Towers



Quote:
Renderings for the revamped Wyndham Santa Monica at the Pier are out, showing that controversial three-tower design that freaked everyone out when it was announced last year. The Holiday Inn-turned-Wyndham hired Venice-based architects Jerde Partnership (they did the Santa Monica Place update a couple years ago) to design the redevelopment, and here's what they've come up with: the three towers at Ocean Avenue, Colorado Avenue, and Main Street will step up in height from west to east. The shortest will be five stories and the tallest 15 stories, coming to either 174 or 195 feet. Each tower will have a viewing deck on top, and they'll have a total 211 hotel rooms and 25 residential units.

When we last heard from this project in March, a city planning commissioner was asking the hotel owner when he was going to give up plans for "so large a development on the site." Not yet, apparently! But city opposition hasn't wavered--earlier this week, three councilmembers proposed that Santa Monica pause discussions on any of the three contentious downtown hotels in the works: this one, the Frank Gehry-designed Ocean Avenue Project, and the Fairmont Miramar renovations. It just needs support from one more councilmember when it comes up for a vote next week.

First Look at New Design For H'wood's Sunset Bronson Studios



Quote:
The proposed Sunset Bronson Studios Entertainment Center--an update to the KTLA Studio block--recently released a revised draft environmental impact report (pdf) with these juicy photos and more details on the endeavor. The project will have a 14-story Gensler-designed office tower (formerly 13, but still the same height thanks to a shorter penthouse), a five-story production office building, and a seven-story garage; it'll also include the relocation the radio tower to its original spot, a bit to the west. The supplemental DEIR mentions that "the fašade of the office building has been modified to include groupings of floors that are horizontally offset from each other and feature alternating fašades of glass curtain wall and panelized, precast concrete ... The top volume of the office building would be of a smaller footprint compared to the bottom portion of the building and would create a unique profile on the skyline. In addition, a roof terrace area for tenants would be provided within the second and fourth offsets."

Don't worry: the studio's historic Colonial-style offices will remain and be renovated. "The [new] office building also would continue to be set back from Sunset Boulevard to align with the fašade of the [historic building], allowing the detailed, articulated fašade of the historic executive office building to be visible and prominent." A final EIR is the next step in the process.

Port of LA Getting Giant Marine Research Center AltaSea

Pretty sweet!



Quote:
The massive marine research center planned for the Port of Los Angeles is a go: final plans were announced today, $57 million in initial funding has been lined up, and it has a name--AltaSea. The public/private redevelopment of the 100-year-old City Dock No. 1 is expected to cost $500 million and be completed in 15 to 20 years. But don't despair--phase one is expected to wrap up some time around 2018, and will be home to the Southern California Marine Institute, "a strategic alliance of 11 major universities in southern California that have marine science academic and research programs," according to a press release from the Port today. When all is said and done, the 28-acre campus will include:

-- 4,100 feet of waterfront dock and wharf space with direct harbor and ocean access.
-- Space for large research ships to dock.

-- Laboratories located directly on the harbor to allow  immediate water access for marine science programs.
-- Auditorium, interpretive center, and classrooms for school and community events.
-- Natural saltwater wave tank for the most accurate wave and tsunami simulations.
-- Harbor promenade and other open space.

Outgoing mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, who was at today's announcement, said the development will position LA "as the premier location for addressing ocean-related environmental issues that are not only important to Southern California, but to the world." It'll also bring a bunch of construction jobs to the harbor area--more than 5,000 for both construction phases. San Pedro's really trying to earn that freeway renaming.

Shorter Giant Towers Approved For Lots Around Capitol Records



Quote:
Big news out of the City Council's Planning and Land Use Management Committee meeting just now: the Millennium Hollywood developer has agreed to limit the height of the two towering towers--planned for lots around the Capitol Records building--to 39 and 35 stories. That's down from original maximum heights of 585 and 485 feet, but, says a rep for Millennium, it doesn't change the total square footage of the project, or the proposed number of residential units (492) or hotel rooms (200). It does, however, bump the total amount of open space in the plan up to 35 percent, from 25 percent. After the height change was announced someone from still-Councilmember Garcetti's office spoke in favor of the project (he'd come out against it during the mayoral campaign), and the committee approved the proposal. But not before community members in attendance had their say

(cont...)

Koreatown's The Vermont Tops Off Its Twin Towers Next Week



Quote:
Koreatown's mammoth mixed-user The Vermont tops off its highest floors during a ceremony on Thursday, its developer has announced. The 464-unit project from JH Snyder features 23- and 29-story towers, as well as 40,000 square feet of retail (including a grocery store), and parking up the wazoo. Other amenities: a quarter-acre central courtyard and a sky lobby on the seventh floor. The LEED-certified project, across from the Red and Purple Lines (DTLA, Hollywood, Mid-Wilshire, and eventually Westwood, will be a one-seat subway ride away), opens in mid-2014.

I agree, but 7 stories less wont make a big difference since these towers at 39 and 35 floors will still tower above everything in Hollywood, and be roughly be 150 meters (39 floor tower), and 135 meters (35 floor tower).

Downtown Marriotts Top Out



Quote:
SOUTH PARK: The double Marriott going up across from LA Live has topped off its 22 floors, according to pics from poster Mojeda101 on SSP--the tower certainly adds a nice dimension to views on Olympic. White cladding is quickly climbing to the top floor as well, but the Courtyard Marriott/Residence Inn won't open its 392 rooms until next year.

CasdenWestLA Chopping Off 7 Stories, Target, Supermarket



Quote:
Ahead of Friday's City Council meeting (where it's up for approval), developer Casden has decided to trim its huge mixed-use CasdenWestLA project, planned for the corner of Pico and Sepulveda. The transit-oriented development adjacent to a future Expo Line stop was going to bring four buildings (the tallest at 17 stories) with 638 residential units, a Target, a supermarket, and additional retail space to the site of a cement factory right near the 405. But a raft of neighborhood groups, along with City Councilmembers and even the City Attorney, kicked up a fuss, and yesterday Casden offered a compromise. According to the LA Times, the number of residential units will drop to 595, the tallest building will top out at 10 stories now, and the planned Target and supermarket have both been ditched, with a drastic reduction of the commercial space. The Target in particular had drawn fire because its shoppers were not likely to take public transportation to get there. There are no answers yet on how changes will effect the mix of residential units.

Two Big Towers Planned For Hollywood Palladium Parking Lots



Quote:
Holy shit, there have been rumors about some kind of development at the site of the Hollywood Palladium for ages now, but here they finally are, for real: newish owner Crescent Heights has announced (so far sketchy) plans for what two big-ass towers on the parking lots behind the site. As part of the plan, they'll seek landmarking for the 1940 theater (which was built by LA Times publisher Norman Chandler). According to a press release, the developers have submitted plans to "transform the Palladium's existing parking lots into a transit-oriented mixed-use development by adding residential units, street level shops and restaurants, and a potential hotel." Judging by this rendering, the new buildings will be taller than the neighboring House of Blues building, which is 22 stories.

We're trying to get more info on just how tall they'll be, and all the details on what will go inside--so far, the only hard number is that there'll be 963 bike parking stalls. The development fits right in with all the latest action in Hollywood--they're tall towers, just like those slated for the area around Capitol Records and the one currently under-construction just down the street at the Old Spaghetti Factory site. The release adds that these plans "will seamlessly integrate that Palladium into a broader pedestrian-friendly canvas" and that they're "Designed to frame the Palladium's iconic marquee ... and are located to preserve views of the Hollywood Hills." Stanley Saitowitz of Natoma Architects is leading the design, which is meant "to echo and complement the Streamline Moderne style of the Palladium."

New South Park Rentals Will Cater to Grown-Ups



Quote:
Another South Park parking lot will bite the dust when the 96-unit Urban Village, South Park project breaks ground near Olive and Olympic. The developer, simply named Urban Village (they're the group behind a new mixed-user in Long Beach), says entitlements and acquisition are all set and there are just a few things left to do before work starts in September. The site is directly behind the Crash Mansion nightclub, which is currently getting torn down--Urban Village didn't immediately return our call about whether the rowdy club was getting the boot to make way for their project. It doesn't sound like there's retail involved, but the seven-story Urban Village, South Park will have four live/work units, private roofdecks, a dog park, parking, and a fitness center. "While many projects in Downtown cater to students and offer a dorm-ish environment," the developer says in a statement, "Urban Village, South Park is a blend of harmony and amenities."
