Metro to unveil mass transit blueprint that includes tunnel through the Sepulveda Pass

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority plans to propose a radical step: Pushing a tunnel through the mountains that could accommodate a toll road and a passenger rail line.

The tunnel is one of nearly a dozen major transit projects Metro says it could build if voters approve a $120-billion tax increase proposal expected to appear on the November ballot.

Other projects include rail lines through the San Fernando Valley and southeastern L.A. County, as well as faster bus service on a handful of major corridors, according to two officials briefed on the plan. They spoke to The Times on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly.

New Details for J.W. Marriott Expansion

As a refresher, AEG is proposing $500-million expansion with 755 guest rooms and 170,000 square feet of conference and event space.

The 38-story hotel tower is being designed by Gensler, with an architectural apex of 589 feet. The conference space would be built above the Olympic West Parking Garage, between the Convention Center's West Hall and the Regal Theater complex.

Kaiser Permanente's new medical school will be in Pasadena

Kaiser Permanente is moving forward with its ambitious plan to open a medical school that's more in tune with new technologies and local communities.

The Oakland-based healthcare provider said Thursday its institution will be located in Pasadena. And it talked about how it will try to attract a more diverse student body.

Kaiser said it chose central Pasadena because the site is close to major freeways, public transportation options and affordable housing. Kaiser is also well-established in the surrounding area, with 14 hospitals in Southern California and medical office complexes in Pasadena and Glendale. The school will also be within several miles of facilities where students will be trained.

New Look at Downtown Pacific Palisades's Grove-Style Makeover

According to the website for the project, the complete, renovated downtown Pac Pal will include a five-screen movie theater (a new iteration of the Bay Theater, which hasn't operated since 1978), a "specialty" grocery store, and more parking courtesy of an underground garage.

The new shops and eateries will be arranged on and around a more pedestrian-friendly Swarthmore Avenue (wider sidewalks, reduced to one car-traffic lane) and the remade downtown's new "centerpiece" will be a park off Swarthmore and Monument, previously a parking lot.

The remodel of downtown Pac Pal is expected to open in late 2017.

The Outlets at Orange plants seeds of change for a new kind of downtown

A lot has changed. Today the shopping zone of Uptown Orange is called The Outlets at Orange, and the broader area is an entertainment and residential destination viewed by city leaders and others as the epicenter of growth in Orange.

A 105,000-square-foot expansion of the shopping area is on the way, adding a Bloomingdale’s Outlet and other new stores to what by year’s end will be as many as 132 stores and restaurants. At least four new apartment buildings are coming too, bringing the total to more than 1,100 units within a square mile of the mall. A hotel is in the works; same for a senior center.

Our love affair is not quite over yet, but we're getting there...somewhere in the middle. Doing away with all of that would make LA just another city. The answer is in the middle.

Huge Entertainment District to Surround Queen Mary in Long Beach

The Queen Mary, docked in Long Beach for 49 years, is all of a sudden in for some big changes. The ship's just changed hands and the new lessees, Los Angeles-based investment firm Urban Commons, have secured a 66-year "master lease" for the ship, which they'll be remodeling, but they'll also be altering the land all around the QM. They're planning to eventually build out a "bustling retail, dining and entertainment district" on the 45 acres surrounding the ship, according to a release announcing the new leaseholders.

But first, there will be upgrades to the old ocean liner. All the "enhancements" should be finished by the middle of next year, with the ship staying open for both hotel guests and regular touristy ones during the remodeling.

The second phase of the project will transform the "underutilized oceanfront land" that’s next to the ship, turning it into as much of a destination as the ship has been. Long Beach's vice mayor says in a release for the project that she is happy to have Urban Commons as a "a collaborative partner" in the process to reinvigorate the area around the iconic ship. The planning process for the development seems to be in the earliest stages now.

This isn't the only major project headed for Long Beach's waterfront. The Aquarium of the Pacific just last month announced big plans to add a new 29,000-square-foot wing onto their existing facilities. The expansion looks like a glassy, blue whale and will hold a two-story, 300-seat theater and a new main entrance.
