SaMo Loves Huge Gehry Designs But Wants "More Gehry-ness"



Quote:
Santa Monica's Architecture Review Board gave a big thumbs up to the Ocean Avenue Project, the proposed luxury hotel/condo/museum development designed by Frank Gehry. The 244-foot tower would dwarf the height limit suggested by the downtown area's specific plan, but that was not of concern to the board members. This is Frank ******* Gehry we're talking about! According to the Santa Monica Daily Press, board chair Lynn Robb thinks that there's no reason to fear the proposed height, though "if someone else with less imagination was utilizing the site, the proposed structure would just look massive." But she also wants "to see more Gehry-ness."

Enormous Santa Monica Blvd. Mixed-User Back On in Hollywood


Quote:
A huge mixed-use project for a sad stretch of Santa Monica Boulevard a little bit east of Highland in Hollywood is making the rounds again, after first popping up on our radar in 2007. The Lexington Project would replace 11 buildings--including Arena and three other nightclubs, a self-storage facility, and a building material business--with six 5 to 6 story buildings holding 786 residential units and 22,000 square feet of commercial space fronting on Santa Monica Boulevard. There will be a pool, open public space, 1,612 parking spaces in two subterranean levels, and units will range from studios to three-bedrooms. There will be affordable housing included, but how much of it will depend on whether the units go condo or apartment. The Draft Environmental Impact Report is being circulated again with some small changes from 2008, but the developer isn't planning to start the build-out until 2017. Once underway, the project would be built in two phases over four years.

Long-Awaited Federal Courthouse Breaks Ground

Quote:
DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES — Their phrases differed, but all the speakers at today’s groundbreaking ceremony for Downtown’s United States Courthouse reiterated the same theme: It’s about time.

After more than a decade of disappointments and setbacks, excavation will begin in the coming days on the $400 million federal courthouse that will fill the 3.6-acre site at the southwest corner of First Street and Broadway.

I wouldn't. Fits right in with the scale of the Historic Core.

I hate seeing those giant billboards on the sides of buildings. Makes me think of Minority Report.

New Petersen Auto Museum renderings

Pretty sweet!








Quote:
The Petersen also plans to completely redesign the galleries and add 15,000 square feet of new display space; post-reno, the galleries "will feature state-of-the-art lighting, digital displays and immersive learning stations that will tell the stories of the people and machines that changed the world over the past century." The museum has been reorganizing its collection (selling off a lot of cars), and plans to include a mix of "historically significant American and European classics, hot rods, groundbreaking race cars, the latest in alternative fuel technology, cars with Hollywood heritage and even vehicles designed and built in Los Angeles itself." Renderings also indicate there'll be a restaurant. The Petersen is kicking off a capital campaign ASAP to fund the project.
