Chinese developer leads transformation of L.A.'s skyline

Chang's team started excavating the site last July and has kept on schedule since, she said. The three cranes working on the hotel and condo tower are an unusual sight in Los Angeles, where one crane per building is typical.

"We added a second crane to the residential tower to ensure timely progress," Chang said.

Developers usually wait for condos to be sold before erecting more, but Chang is already at work on the second phase of Metropolis — two more high-rise condo towers with about 1,500 units.

The first phase will include an 18-story, 350-room hotel and a 38-story condo tower with 308 units. More than half of the condos have committed buyers, Chang said.

Chinese development appears to differ from the heavy Japanese investment in U.S. real estate in the late 1980s, which unnerved many Americans. Japanese investors acquired prominent properties at record prices before both countries experienced an economic downturn in the early 1990s and their real estate markets crashed.

Greenland and other Chinese developers in Los Angeles are building new projects from the ground up, assuming substantial financial risk. If they fail to turn a profit, developments such as Metropolis could be sold for less than it cost to build them.

Greenland is also working with city officials and business leaders to create Avenue of the Angels, a proposed pedestrian thoroughfare with shops, restaurants and bars intended to link downtown's South Park neighborhood with the financial district. It would pass by Metropolis.

"Chinese investors will become even more active and influential over the next 10 years," he said, "and will continue adapting to Western business practices while retaining a critical sensitivity to their Chinese roots and the demographics of the Chinese population in the United States."

Expansion L.A. soccer team plans new stadium on Sports Arena site

The expansion Los Angeles Football Club plans to construct the country's most expensive privately financed soccer stadium on the site of the Sports Arena in Exposition Park, making it the first open-air professional sports venue to be built in Los Angeles since Dodger Stadium in 1962.

The $250-million complex, covering 15 acres in the shadow of the L.A. Memorial Coliseum, would include a conference center, restaurants and a soccer museum. At its center would be a 22,000-seat stadium, home to the new Major League Soccer franchise when it makes its debut in 2018.

The project, costing $100 million more than the team's projections seven months ago, still needs approval from the Coliseum Commission and the L.A. City Council. But both groups, along with L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti, have already expressed support for the project and approval is expected by July.

The decision to go forward with the project was made last week, and the club will formally announce its plans at a news conference Monday.

Lovin the Populous design.. Its eye catching and fun, adding good energy to the area.

In regards to the LAFC stadium. Its beautiful. I love it, but they really should be closer to 30,000 seats. 22,000 is ok for the next couple years, but not 7 - 10 years down the line.

I like the lower elements of the first render, but the top ruins it for me, I like the Populous proposal too, but I'm afraid of what the real thing might look like. Like the eye sore the Music Experience is in Seattle.

LAFC, very excited about it, even though I'm a Galaxy man and will always be. Hopefully this will catapult the renaissance of the Coliseum.

What was the reason to post all 3 proposals again and then to top it off not say anything but your apparent tag line? ^

I love the bold red Populous design.
