Can $250 million and a Ferris wheel finally turn the Queen Mary into a Long Beach tourist destination?

The company, Urban Commons, was chosen by the city late last year as the new leaseholder of the marine complex. The company formally took over the lease this week and is working with a task force appointed by the mayor on ideas for developing the surrounding 45 acres, now mostly parking lots.

While plans are still preliminary, company principal Taylor Woods said he would like to add to the 314 staterooms available on the ship. He envisions a 200-room landside boutique hotel, restaurants, a marina and an amphitheater for thousands to enjoy live music and events — all linked together by jogging and bike paths near the water.

Woods said a giant Ferris wheel is also a possibility, as long as it wouldn't detract from the Long Beach skyline.

Woods said Urban Commons has been holding substantive meetings with city officials and the Queen Mary Land Development Task Force and hopes to have a master plan for the city's approval within a year. He hopes the whole development will be finished within five years.

New renderings for Beverly Hilton development

As previously reported, plans are being altered from eight- and 18-story buildings to a single 26-story tower. The footprint of the shorter building along Wilshire Bouelvard would become green space.

LACMA receives a historic $75-million windfall, creating an energetic and hope-filled momentum

It once seemed like a herculean, if not insurmountable, challenge – raising $600 million or more for an ambitious modernist building to serve as the new home for the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

Elaine Wynn, who is one of the world's top art collectors and became a museum co-chair last year, has pledged $50 million to the project. At the same time, former Univision chairman A. Jerrold Perenchio has promised $25 million. Combined, it amounts to the largest monetary donation in the museum's history.

The new pledges are contingent on the successful launch of the new Peter Zumthor-designed building project, which begins the environmental review process this summer. If all goes as planned, construction would begin in 2018 and be completed in 2023. The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors previously approved $125 million for the project.

If completed, the new building would rank as one of the most important works of architecture to be built in Los Angeles since Frank Gehry's Walt Disney Concert Hall opened in 2003. Local leaders see Zumthor's sleek design as crucial to lifting LACMA to the top ranks of the world's art museums.

With an emphasis on glass and transparency, and a layout that would spread the museum's footprint over Wilshire Boulevard, the new building is intended to energize the campus and provide a visitor experience that is both inviting and architecturally innovative.

Wynn said her $50-million gift was inspired by Perenchio's decision in 2014 to pledge the bulk of his private art collection to LACMA. His collection has an estimated value of $500 million.

While Wynn has long been associated with Las Vegas, she is now a part-time Angeleno, with a residence in Beverly Hills.

"My children and grandchildren live there. … I've always loved L.A. I consider it to be a suburb of Las Vegas, but Las Vegas is really a suburb of L.A."

Upon this stretch of undeveloped dirt, one-time landfill for the city, Berggruen is hoping to build the headquarters for a think tank that bears his name. He purchased these 450 acres, just west of the 405 Freeway in the Sepulveda Pass, last year and hopes to break ground before the decade is over.

The Berggruen Institute could be the last large project built in the eastern Santa Monica Mountains, a cloistered campus that would occupy half the remaining, private open space between Topanga State Park and the San Diego Freeway.

Five years ago, Berggruen, 54 and one of the richest men in the world, stepped away from the businesses that created his fortune. He had grown bored with his wealth and set a new challenge for himself: to create a destination where global politics and culture can meet.

Can anti-mall and Packing House developer work his Midas touch on Garden Grove?

Shaheen Sadeghi, the developer behind Costa Mesa’s innovative anti-malls and Anaheim’s hip food hall, the Packing House, is setting his sights on Garden Grove.

On Tuesday, the commercial real estate developer entered an agreement with the city to build retail, office, cafe and market space near the civic center complex. The council unanimously approved the plan.

“The concept is to create a small cottage community,” said city manager Scott Stiles. “Maybe a little coffee shop here, a little yoga studio there. It would be mixed use in character.”

Sadeghi told the council he was enticed to restore existing residential structures and emphasized providing a space for local vendors who reflect the fabric of the community.

The Cottage Industries project involves 17 properties that would be bought, leased and subleased by Sadeghi’s company, LAB Holding. The developer will buy 12 single-family homes for $3.38 million, while the remaining five parcels will be leased. Escrow is expected to close in November, and the project should be completed in three years, according to city documents.

The Housing Authority properties Sadeghi is acquiring are scattered along 7th, 8th and 9th streets, Acacia Parkway and Garden Grove Boulevard. The plan is part of the city’s overall “Re:Imagine Garden Grove” campaign to revitalize the Civic Center area.

Sadeghi, a former surfwear executive, founded his Costa Mesa-based real estate development firm in 1991. Since then, the company has grown to 110 employees. In 1993, LAB Holding renovated an abandoned goggle factory to open its first small business retail space – the Lab anti-mall in Costa Mesa. Almost a decade later, Sadeghi’s company would open the Camp, a similar retail concept, across the street. Three years ago he opened the trendy food hall in a historic 1919 packing house in Anaheim.

More recently, Sadeghi’s company entered an exclusive negotiating agreement with the city of Newport Beach to renovate the Balboa Theater into a venue for independent musicians.

UCLA's art school plans to build a $31-million expansion in Culver City with major donation

The university is in the late planning stages to build a $31-million studio complex for graduate art students, according to people familiar with the project. The 75,000-square-foot building would replace a tumble-down facility currently in use. The impressive plan, set to be shown Thursday to a group of university supporters, was conceived in 2011 but languished for lack of funds.

Major funding for the project will come from Margo Leavin, the art dealer whose eponymous gallery held forth in West Hollywood for 42 years until her retirement in 2012.

The timing is ripe. Earlier this year, U.S. News & World Report ranked UCLA's master of fine arts program No. 2 in the nation, just behind Yale — a private university with the second-largest endowment in the United States. UCLA's art school tied Virginia Commonwealth University, notable for its design program.

Revealed: Big Plans to Redevelop the Burbank Ikea Site

A new Burbank location for Ikea is now under construction, and when it's finished next spring, the Swedish retailer will move into the biggest Ikea in the US and leave behind its old space in the Burbank Town Center. What will become of that store and the shopping center that surrounds it is the focus of a huge new redevelopment project from Crown Realty & Development and Texas-based CAPREF Manager, LLC, according to a release from the joint venture.

Developers have launched a campaign for the redevelopment called I Heart Burbank to support the dramatic changes they're proposing for the center. Their overhauled property would have an open-air plaza, 40,000 square feet for "fresh retail tenants," and open space for things like a farmers' market. The mall will get upgrades to its interior and exterior, and add outdoor dining options at its entrance on Magnolia Boulevard.

He left out the important part:

The gift will provide the lead investment for a state-of-the-art facility in west Los Angeles that will serve as the Ellison Institute's home, according to an article on the USC website. The building will house interdisciplinary cancer research laboratories focused on scientific discovery and innovation.

Mega-music weekends bring lasting change to area
Goldenvoice’s massive musical events at Empire Polo Grounds are making a permanent mark on the Coachella Valley.

The events – last month’s Coachella and Stagecoach festivals – bring in 273,000 attendees from throughout the world and pump more than $403 million into the Valley economy, according to research commissioned by producer Goldenvoice.

Those tourists need places to sleep and eat, which translates to construction and renovation.

The need became apparent Tuesday when Goldenvoice announced a new mega-concert, Desert Trip, featuring rock stars of the stature of Bob Dylan and the Rolling Stones.

Within 24 hours, most hotels were booked for the concert weekend, Oct. 7-9.

According to Indio mayor Glenn Miller, rooms that remain are going for $500-$600 a night.

After no hotel construction in Indio since the 1980s, a Holiday Inn Express opened in 2014, and the city has two more hotels in the works. Plans have been approved for Fairfield Inn & Suites, and Hilton Garden Inn is in escrow, Miller said in a phone interview.

But, he said, “two or three hotels, when you’re talking about the amount of people they’re adding up, are still not going to be enough.”

If you can't figure out from the picture's quote what it has to do with Los Angeles construction, then you must have thought "USC" stood for University of South Carolina...
