Take a Look Around Facebook's Huge New Los Angeles Office

Facebook may soon be taking up a lot more space in Los Angeles. The company is going to be gobbling up 35,000 square feet at Playa Vista's Playa Jefferson—leaving behind a smaller space at the Campus at Playa Vista to make the move, The Real Deal hears. The space isn't ready for our media overlords quite yet, but they should be in by the summer at the latest. How much are they forking over for all this space in the trendy office complex?

TRD estimates that by the current asking rates, Facebook would be spending about $1.5 million a year to lease their new home base, but "the lease was signed before the new year at a slightly lower rate." Even at those higher rates, they can probably afford it.

Possible Chargers practice facility would be just outside Costa Mesa

The San Diego Chargers recently submitted plans to Santa Ana City Hall for interim training and office facilities on the edge of Santa Ana city limits in South Coast Metro, near the Costa Mesa border.

The NFL franchise — which is considering a move to a planned stadium in Inglewood that it would share with the Los Angeles Rams, who are returning to Southern California after 20 years in St. Louis — sent grading and landscape plans last week for two practice fields on a 5-acre vacant lot near Susan Street and Lake Center Drive, with offices in a building off Lake Center formerly occupied by UnitedHealthcare.

"The franchise is continuing to review all of its options, and no final decision on relocation has been made," the Chargers said in a statement last week. "It was necessary for the team to submit the grading and landscape plans now because of the long lead time necessary to secure land-use approvals and to prepare the natural grass practice fields in time for the team's offseason workout schedule."

Both the lot and the building are owned by Costa Mesa-based C.J. Segerstrom & Sons. The company did not immediately respond to a request for comment Monday.

The real challenge for Los Angeles' new football stadium is everything around it

The design of the stadium itself, which will be sunk 100 feet into the ground and covered with a sweeping, translucent roof, is full of impressive — and impressively telegenic — touches. It is eager to look like no other football stadium in the country and at the same time attach itself to a certain Modernist lineage in Southern California architecture, with a fluid connection between inside and out and an extensive collection of trees and greenery by landscape architect Mia Lehrer.

The Inglewood design is dominated by that gargantuan roof, a feature whose unusual geometry gives the stadium as a whole an unorthodox and asymmetrical character. It will be made of a gridded steel frame inset with huge panels of ETFE, a transparent material only about 1% as heavy as glass.

The roof is visually dramatic and more than a little overwrought. It curves up to form a large opening on the stadium's western edge, where a 2.5-acre covered plaza will overlook an artificial lake. Then it plunges back down on its southern end, joining the roof of the smaller concert venue before meeting the ground in a dagger-like point.

The roof will allow the stadium, the performance venue and the plaza between them to feel as though they are part of a single design. It will keep the rain out while making it possible for the stadium to be largely day-lit and open to the air along its edges.

It will also operate as a huge billboard visible to planes heading into LAX, blimps and helicopters patrolling the airspace above the stadium and desktop travelers using Google Earth. It will be a supersize example of exploiting what architects since Le Corbusier have called the sky-facing "fifth fašade."

The roof should cut down on airplane noise. And it will allow the stadium to hold concerts and major sporting events like college basketball's Final Four — or some part of the Olympics, should L.A. win the bid for the 2024 Summer Games.

That flexibility is important for a couple of reasons: The first is the relatively small number of events on the NFL calendar: just eight regular-season games every year at home (or twice that if the Chargers or Raiders join Kroenke in Inglewood).

The second is the murky future that professional football faces in this country. The NFL's TV ratings are as sky high as ever, but with mounting evidence of the links between football and brain injury, and parents across the country thinking twice about signing up their kids for Pop Warner, it's impossible to say what kind of role the sport will play in American culture a generation or two from now.

^ "Note: This article previously stated that the building would stand 840 feet tall, which is incorrect. The proposed height is 740 feet, which would make it the city's sixth tallest building."

Sorry for being a downer.

2024 Summer Olympics | Games of the XXXIII Olympiad - Candidate Cities

With 2024 bid in full swing, U.S. Olympic Team Trials Marathon offers L.A. showcase

LOS ANGELES -- As Los Angeles mayor Eric Garcetti stood before a crowd outside the Los Angeles Convention Center on Saturday morning prior to the start of the U.S. Olympic Team Trials Marathon, he smiled as he looked around at the palm trees lining the streets and the sun-kissed glass fašade of the convention center on a picturesque 75-degree day.

"What do you guys think? Do you want to bring the Olympics back to American soil?" Garcetti asked the cheering crowd before the race. "Let's bring it back for a third time! Let's bring the Olympics back home! Let's do it in 2024!"

Whether or not Los Angeles is chosen as the host city, ground will be broken later this year on a nearly $3 billion world-class football stadium in Inglewood, which will be the new home of the Los Angeles Rams, and on a $250 million soccer stadium on the site of the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena, which will be the new home of Los Angeles FC, an expansion Major League Soccer team. The Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum will also undergo a nearly $300 million renovation beginning next year. All of the stadiums are expected to be completed by 2019.

In addition to those facilities, over the past three years, the Rose Bowl has undergone a $182 million renovation; UCLA's Pauley Pavilion underwent a $136 million makeover; The Forum got a $100 million facelift, and even new facilities such as the Staples Center and StubHub Center have gotten a combined $25 million worth of upgrades and touchups, maintaining their status as premier homes in the NBA, NHL and MLS.

"We can offer a bid that not only doesn't go into debt, but everything is going to be used long after the Olympics and will already be built before the Olympics," Garcetti told ESPN. "It's all new facilities since the 1984 Olympics with the exception of the Coliseum, which will be upgraded and has the history. We're talking about cutting-edge facilities such as the stadium in Inglewood, which will be the most expensive and most technologically advanced stadium ever built. The Olympics want a more sustainable model for host cities, and Los Angeles is the perfect embodiment of that. More than 85 percent of our venues are already built or will be built regardless of whether we have the Olympics. We are fitting the plan for the Olympic Games to our city, not the other way around."

The LA 2024 bid calls for UCLA's modern residences to serve as its Olympic Village with USC, which is currently building a 15-acre, $700 million mixed-use "University Village" slated to be completed by 2018, as its Media Village. Both schools have also recently built several athletic and training facilities on campus, including the $147 million Galen Center and $70 million John McKay Center at USC, and the $70 million Wasserman Football Center and Mo Ostin Basketball Center at UCLA, which broke ground last year.

"We are so excited that Los Angeles has played host to so many chapters in Olympics history, and we hope to soon write another chapter," Garcetti said. "Los Angeles has the capacity, infrastructure, people and experience to make it happen. We have the strongest package in the world. This is a town that has been home to more Olympic athletes than any place on the face of the Earth."
