Plenty of new renderings for the Reef project, formerly known as SoLA Village.

IMO significant skyline extending developments are just as exciting as a city building a new tallest or near tallest. This one especially excites me because it seems like it could act as a nidus for further development.

oh, and on the 'private school parent economic indicator' the area (well at least the Westside) is booming right now. was at a parent's event yesterday and several people were stating they can't even get contractors to call them back right now for home renovation work because there is so much construction going on. and contractors are raising prices... lots of people doing additions etc. take it with a grain of salt but i believe 'em yo!

Big Chinese developer plans apartment-and-retail complex in Hollywood

One of China's largest developers plans to build a $125-million apartment and shopping complex in Hollywood — marking the expansion of mainland Chinese builders in the Los Angeles area beyond downtown and Beverly Hills.

Gemdale Corp., which has constructed some of the largest residential communities in China over the last two decades, has formed a partnership with LaTerra Development of Los Angeles to erect a six-story residential and retail complex on Western Avenue near Sunset Boulevard.

Gemdale, based on the mainland in Shenzhen, is listed on the Hong Kong stock exchange and has built more than 30,000 condominiums in 25 Chinese cities in 2013 alone, the company said.

Its move into Hollywood comes after other large Chinese developers, including Greenland Group, Oceanwide Real Estate Group and Shenzhen Hazens Real Estate Group Co., have started work on billions of dollars worth of new condominium, hotel and retail projects near Staples Center.

Wanda Group, another Chinese firm, is set to build a $1-billion condominium and hotel complex in Beverly Hills on the former site of a Robinsons-May department store on Wilshire Boulevard.

Construction should start on the garage by the end of this year, he said, and the entire project should be finished by early 2018. An outstanding question is the exact number of units. The plan is to build as many as 254, more than typically would be allowed on the property, by setting aside 21 apartments for "very low-income" residents, Tourtellotte said. Developers can be rewarded when they include affordable housing in a project.

LAFC unveil latest Los Angeles stadium renderings ahead of supporters workshop on Saturday

LAFC might be more than two years from opening their first MLS season, but the franchise is wasting no time getting ready.

Saturday, the club hosts the first in a series of meetings with supporters and season-ticket (deposit) holders at the downtown Los Angeles offices of Gensler, their stadium architects. The lead topic? Stadium design, supplemented by a programming workshop in which the fans will get a chance to offer feedback on their proposed home.

Looks REALLY REALLY good. The only thing i dont like is that the corner spaces dont have seating but i think that the seating can be expanded in the future.

Citylab has a great article today with satellite before-and-afters of several neighborhoods highlighting where surface parking lots have been replaced by development (particularly adjacent to Metro stations). Some of the changes are pretty dramatic.

DTLA




Little Tokyo/Arts District




Hollywood/Vine




Wilshire/Vermont

It's great to see (Downtown) LA is turning denser and more urban.

It could need smaller structures though, San Francisco / Old Downtown LA style. Often a whole block is occupied by just one large new building. That doesn't make it all that lively and diverse.
