The Oceanwide Group has finally pulled permits for Fig Central, and it looks like they're going with the project as most recently designed. Two towers (53 and 38 stories), hotel, residential and retail.

And yet! News came through early last month that China's biggest commercial developer, Wanda Group, had purchased the 9900 Wilshire site, but without revealing what they would do with it (or how much they paid). Today, via the LA Times, we find out that, yes, finally, Wanda plans to build Meier's plans for two-mid-rise condo towers (14 to 16 stories), with work slated to begin next year. The plans call for 235 units and about 21,000 square feet of street-level retail, with 876 underground parking spots.

Here's the Possible New Look For a Reimagined Union Station



Quote:
Metro has begun to finalize plans for the dramatic Union Station Master Plan, which will preserve the wonderful and historic Union Station that Angelenos know and love while making enormous changes—they'll start in the near-term by replacing the northern parking lot in front of the station with a pedestrian plaza, but a slew of other improvements over the next several years should finally give LA a "world-class transit facility [and] a destination that serves everybody."

Step one of the big Master Plan will be "perimeter improvements" like the new pedestrian plaza, intended to "soften the edges of the station, create better connections to the Civic Center and historic and cultural communities surrounding the station, and welcome transit riders and visitors," according to a Metro staff report (via The Source). Step two will be private development surrounding the station and "major transit improvements," including moving the Patsaouras Bus Plaza to an elevated spot between the back of the existing station and railroad tracks. Step three is a high-speed rail station, assuming that mess of a project ever reaches Downtown LA.

The staff reports says that the final Master Plan "include[s] a series of open spaces, terraces and connecting features that allow transit riders and visitors to easily span the site, with the choice of crossing at grade level or going above the rail platforms for a view of the transit services and the City." Besides the elevated bus plaza, the existing tunnel that connects the main station to train platforms and buses will be madeover into a "multi-modal concourse" for passengers to wait for transportation.

The Master Plan is on the Metro Planning Board's agenda for next month's meeting; the full Metro Board still has to vote on the plan as well.

[...]

















This map shows the new passenger concourse's connection to high-speed rail. The Source notes that "[t]he USMP could support other approaches to a HSR station as well."

I'm excited about this one, this will probably launch a new life (and hopefully development) of the historic area of the city.

(LA was founded by the Spanish Crown in 1781 at the plaza [highlighted in yellow] in front of Union Station)

All those buildings around there are pretty old.

What are the chances that this project will go through? If the chances are good, what are the chances that it will be this design?

Its so awesome, and I'd hate to see the project lose steam or support (political or financial) after some of the initial phases.

Roof top Helipads no longer required. The law has been rescinded by Mayor Garcetti.

LA Might Drag Out Dead Attempt to Get NFL to Downtown



Quote:
LA Live owner AEG has not given up hope that they can bring the Farmers Field football stadium to South Park, though pretty much everyone else has. They're asking the city for six more months to effectively lure the NFL to South Park, according to a statement; their original agreement with the city (made in October 2012) also included an overhaul of the desperately outdated LA Convention Center, and gives them through October 17 of this year to seal a deal. "In light of the positive tone of recent conversations, we feel it would be productive to continue this dialogue while at the same time further exploring alternative plans with the City," AEG president and CEO Dan Beckerman says. Who knows where this "positive tone" comes from all of a sudden, considering the NFL has been signaling for at least a year and a half now that it's not very interested in the Farmers Field plan and would prefer a football stadium in Chavez Ravine.

Since the Farmers Field plan has looked dead for a long time, the city of LA has been working on a contingency plan for updating the Convention Center without a new football stadium—they've launched a design competition for a renovation that could also include a 1,000-room hotel. AEG, in their new bid for more time, has offered to pony up the $600,000 the city needs to fund this design competition; they've also offered to kick in an additional $150,000 for the "review and consideration" of the designs, they say in their release. This would allow both plans—a convention center reboot with and without a stadium—to move forward at the same time. AEG, incidentally, has a city contract to operate the Convention Center.

As usual, it seems like AEG will get what it wants: Mayor Garcetti and City Council President Herb Wesson are both in favor of the extension. But will it be enough?

[...]

That's quite a misleading title to the article. Also, US Bank Tower is taller than the Shard...
