What are you even talking about? It's not going to be a dorm, just office space.

why would this be on the "disrespectful" students? I doubt it was their idea to put the logo on the building!

It's literally another campus with classroom space.

...nor was it their idea to "take over" the AT&T Center. My point was USC should have built their own building. They're paying $8 million a year in rent anyway.

If I owned a firm with offices in the building, it sounds far more respectable saying it's in the "AT&T Center" instead of "USC Building."

This explains why there was no movement on the Renaissance Hotel:

AEG to add 755 rooms to Marriott complex at L.A. Live


(Full size: http://www.trbimg.com/img-54f7981d/t...riott-20150305)

by Roger Vincent

Quote:
Sports and entertainment giant AEG will make a $500-million expansion to its Marriott complex at L.A. Live as the demand for hotel rooms rises in downtown Los Angeles.

AEG will add 755 rooms to the popular J.W. Marriott in a new high-rise connected to the existing hotel building by a bridge over Olympic Boulevard, creating the second-largest hotel in California with 1,756 rooms....

On the roof of the West Parking Garage now serving L.A. Live, AEG will build additional conference, banquet and ballroom space that will be connected to the existing J.W. Marriott function rooms by two bridges....

The J.W. Marriott addition is to rise across Olympic from LA. Live just west of a 23-story Marriott Courtyard and Residence Inn building with 393 rooms that opened last year.

Previous plans called for AEG to sell the site to a developer who would build a 350-room Renaissance hotel. AEG decided to retain ownership of the land and fund its own, larger hotel development, said Todd Goldstein, the company's chief revenue officer....

The new 38-story tower and meeting space addition were designed by Gensler, the same architecture firm that designed L.A. Live including the original hotel complex. The J.W. Marriott addition is to stand at the northeast corner of Olympic Boulevard and Georgia Street.

It will have two levels of underground parking and street-level shops and restaurants operated separately from the hotel. The second floor will have a restaurant and lounge, a fitness center and a swimming pool with cabanas. A tunnel for staff use will pass under Olympic Boulevard.

The addition's 755 rooms would supplement the existing 878-room J.W. Marriott and connected 123-room Ritz-Carlton, creating a 1,756-room property. It would be second in size in California only to the Hilton San Francisco Union Square with 1,908 rooms.

If the city approves the project, AEG intends to start work late this year or early next year, with the rooms scheduled to be available in 2018. The project will go forward whether or not AEG builds its proposed Farmers Field football stadium next to Staples Center, the company said.

Another (albeit much lower) spire for downtown! Not in love with the randomized glass, which is already starting to look dated on the other tower, but I guess they're going for cohesion.

The original project was executed fairly well because of the tallest tower's strange shape, and because it looks better with horizontal orientation. I'm concerned about this coming extension because of the change in orientation and hotel type plans. Still, it beats that hideous Residence Inn.

Vibiana-Adjacent Residential Complex Breaks Ground



Quote:
Wednesday, March 4, 2015

Yet another mixed-use development is now pushing dirt in Downtown Los Angeles.

Earlier this week, Holland Partner Group broke ground on a new residential-retail complex adjacent to the deconsecrated Cathedral of St. Vibiana. The eight-story development, located at 222 South Main Street, will feature 238 apartments above 4,000 square feet of ground-floor retail or restaurant space. The low-rise edifice will feature numerous amenities, including a 247-car garage and a rooftop pool deck.

The project, slated to open in early 2017, is being designed by architecture firm Togawa Smith Martin. Their plan for the apartment complex are is a minor revision of an earlier proposal from the Weintraub Real Estate Group, which had called for a nine-story steel-framed structure on the property. The minor height reduction will allow Holland Partner Group to utilize less expensive wood-frame construction for the development.

Happy to see the area densify. I wonder if Caruso has some inside knowledge about the alignment of the Crenshaw Line extension to/through West Hollywood. Two of the four main proposals would run right by this building, either via San Vicente or La Cienega. In fact, you'd have to think the stop for either variation would be less than a block away.


From that Metro study, via Ridethepinkline

If I'm a homebuyer (and lord knows I'm not), I'm doubling down on Beverly Grove and Carthay Circle/Square, in the hopes that more Rick Carusos come knocking to build a transit-oriented mixed-user on my property.

http://urbanize.la/post/proposed-hol...tower-revealed

Renderings are out for 5901 Sunset Boulevard, an 18-story office tower planned by Hudson Pacific Properties. This would be located right next-door to the controversial Sunset Gordon development.

260 feet tall, 274,000 sq. ft. of office space, 26,000 sq. ft. of retail, 1,118(!!!!) parking spaces in an eight(?!?!?!)-story podium. Building is supposed to open in 2017, assuming all goes to plan.

http://urbanize.la/post/huge-mixed-u...ned-west-adams

Plans are out for the massive KLOS/KABC radio broadcast facility next to the Expo Line's La Cienega/Jefferson Station. Much more ambitious than expected.

Tentative plans are:
  • 1,218 multi-family residential units (one-, two- and three-bedroom units)
  • 200,000 sq. ft. of office space
  • 50,000 sq. ft. of retail and restaurant space
  • 50,000 sq. ft. grocery store

Architect is TCA.

Plans call for a seven-story building along Jefferson, and an eight-story building further north. Surprisingly, the centerpiece of the project would be a 400-unit residential tower which could rise up to 300 feet in height.

First Look at the Thompson Hollywood Hotel Headed For Wilcox



Quote:
Back in October, Curbed reported that yet another hotel was on its way to Hollywood, on Wilcox just north of Sunset, and today we learn it'll be the Thompson Hollywood Hotel. It'll have at least 220 rooms across 12 floors, with a three-floor subterranean parking garage with space for 125 cars. All the expected amenities are involved: a terrace and a 13,000 square foot restaurant on the ground floor, a pool deck, a fitness center, and 1,400 square feet of meeting rooms on the second floor, and a bar/deck that will share the rooftop with a 1,000-square-foot penthouse lounge, according to an environmental doc just filed with the city.

First Look at Super-Fancy 19-Story Apartment Building Headed Next to the Beverly Center



Quote:
There was never any doubt that Grove developer Rick Caruso's forthcoming residential/retail tower near the Beverly Center would not be for the plebs, but now his firm Caruso Affiliated has revealed that the 19-story project at La Cienega and San Vicente will in fact be a "sister property" to the super-fancy 8500 Burton, a neighboring Caruso apartment building completed in 2012 in which the penthouse goes for $40,000 a month. The place actually has a waiting list, which is why Caruso's onto the new building; before balking at those kinds of prices, though, consider: each unit will come with the requisite luxurious amenities, such as an on-call chauffeured black car and "residents-only events." (Okay, commence balking.)

The very tall new building, 333 La Cienega, will have 154 one- and two-bedroom units and, just like 8500 Burton, a groundfloor grocery store and "upscale restaurant" (8500 has The Larder at Burton Way).

Caruso hopes to open the project by fall 2017.

First Look at the 33-Story Grand Central Market Tower



Quote:
It seems like only yesterday that we learned of a new skyscraper headed for Downtown, this one adding to the roster of tower projects not in the Financial District or South Park, but in the Historic Core. (That actually did happen just yesterday.) Today, we have our first glimpse of the glassy, 33-story giant, designed by TCA Architects, and set to loom above Grand Central Market and across the street from the Angels Flight funicular.

The VP of Development for Equity Residential tells Curbed that the 428 units in the building will be rentals, and that residents will enjoy a ninth-floor amenity deck (pool, spa, barbecue, outdoor communal space), as well as a "sky lounge" on floor 33.

That light emanating off the top of the building, referred to in renderings simply as 4th & Hill, is a "beacon" that should be visible from "all over LA."

The soonest the project would begin construction would be early 2016, and from there work would probably take about two years.
