Monterey Park has become a hub for Chinese tourists, and with it hotel development

“Chinese immigrants continue to come in. The city has become very well known in China,” said Michael Huntley, the director of community and economic development in Monterey Park. “Visitors know that they will be able to find the traditional restaurants they like.”

Every year Chinese travelers spend on average $3,000 on trips to California, more than any other country’s visitors, according to the U.S. Office of Travel and Tourism Industries.

Well aware of the flow of tourism, Chinese investors are bringing in brand-name hotels like Courtyard by Marriott and DoubleTree by Hilton to Monterey Park.

Set to open next year, the six-story Courtyard by Marriott is on Atlantic Boulevard and Hellman Avenue. The six-story DoubleTree has been granted land use approvals, but developers have yet to submit construction drawings for the city to review. If built, the 180-room hotel will be located at 220 N. Atlantic Blvd. The project will include spaces for restaurants and retail stores, meeting rooms, fitness center and business center.

Aside from the two hotels, Chinese investors are pouring money into the city’s Town Centre development, a mixed-use project building 109 condominiums above spaces for stores.

[QUOTE=erbse;133740653]^ Lolwhut, Imperial Rome, what the heck are you even talking about?! [/QUOTE

...my thought was of course:the Ancient Rome..
Grand Av,for exemple is a very majestic avenue with many amazing cultural institutions.
Grand park and the civic center are just:WOW!!
Don’t let the stocky skyline fool you: Downtown Los Angeles is full of beautiful buildings. I’d like to think that what we lose in height we make up for in diversity, from 18th-century missions to 21st-century institutions!

An interesting comment re Imperial Rome.

LA has been in a huge building boom, as you would expect from a metro that goes from 2 million people to 20 million in 100 years.

And the style is largely Roman classical. Mid-century modern, deco, porticos, symmetry, etc. Space around buildings so that perspectives are available and people can gather. Not the "zero lot lines" style of many large cities.

For sure this is only some parts of LA, but they are key parts: Grand Ave, civic center, Figueroa, Century City, Exposition Park, along Wilshire in Koreatown, LACMA area and Beverly Hills. Set-back, space, clean lines.

L.A. as Rome? To paraphrase the great quote, L.A. has leapt from barbarism to decadence without touching civilization.

Work starts soon on high-speed rail trench into downtown Fresno

Motorists on Highway 180 through downtown Fresno will start seeing the effects of high-speed rail construction in July as crews begin building a trench that will take the bullet-train tracks beneath the freeway.

The 40-foot-deep trench is the first underground construction for California’s high-speed train system. The two-mile long trench, from Roeding Park to about Stanislaus Street in downtown Fresno, will go under the freeway as well as a San Joaquin Valley Railroad line and an irrigation canal.

The California High-Speed Rail Authority reports that the initial work will include improvements to the shoulders of Highway 180 between G and H streets.

Revived Forum's dominance of L.A. concert business likely to continue

It’s only been two years since the Forum was resurrected in Inglewood, but the famed music venue has quickly grabbed a sizable chunk of the Los Angeles-area concert business.

The revived 17,500-seat oval-shaped hall boasted 20 concerts in the L.A. area during the first half of 2016, accounting for 36% of arena concerts here, the Forum said Wednesday.

Amazing LA ’84 Olympics: $2 million 32 years later for local young athletes!

Surplus funds from the wildly successful 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles are again making a lot of Southland residents happy as 46 youth sports organizations in Southern California will share nearly $2 million in grants for more than 50,000 young athletes across the region, the LA84 Foundation announced Thursday.

“Sports really do make a difference, and LA84 is proud to support programs building up youth, both on and off the field of play,” LA84 President Renata Simril said. “Everyone deserves an opportunity to participate, and these grants will provide underserved youth with the chance to use sport as fuel for a healthy lifestyle and to learn the Olympic values of excellence, friendship and respect.”

New Main Museum in downtown Los Angeles reveals 'Beta' plans — and focus on art in L.A.

It may not seem as if downtown Los Angeles is in need of yet another arts space. But it is coming nonetheless — and it’s aiming to fill a more locally minded role than some of the institutions around it.

The Main Museum will be a non-collecting institution housed in a series of historic early 20th century structures in the Old Bank District. Helmed by Allison Agsten, who previously served as the curator of public engagement at the Hammer Museum, the curatorial focus will be resolutely local.

The museum, which is still being designed by the L.A.-based Tom Wiscombe Architecture, will have 40,000 square feet of exhibition space on the ground floors of the 1903 Hellman Building and the 1905 Farmers and Merchants Building. It will also have a rooftop sculpture garden and amphitheater.

Seed money for the project is being provided by real estate mogul Tom Gilmore and his partner, Jerri Perrone. Construction, estimated to cost $50 million, is expected to take roughly four years.

Last Friday, Los Angeles World Airports—the departments that runs Los Angeles International Airport—held a forum to present and discuss information on the transportation plan that will totally transform the way Angelenos get to and move through LAX. Known as the Landside Access Modernization Program, the plan includes a new automated people mover to carry passengers from the Metro system to the terminals, a consolidated rental car facility, new transportation hubs, and more public parking and pedestrian walkways. LAWA has provided Curbed with some of the new glimpses into LAX's more awesome transportation future

CSUSB Palm Desert Campus to Expand

That is if a master plan unveiled by the university is approved by the board of trustees. "We are planning to build out for eight-thousand students, including resident halls some more classroom buildings, some administrative offices and some athletic fields, it's going to be like a real campus here very shortly," campus dean Sharon Brown-Welty said. If approved, the campus would be so big, it would allow the university to support and additional 7,000 full-time students.

Some of the new features will include a library, student housing, at least nine more academic buildings, athletic fields and so much more. The expansion is all in an effort to establish California State University, Palm Desert as an independent Cal State University campus. "The goal is that this university is the first choice for our Coachella Valley students, when they are considering a four-year university,” Brown-Welty said. University officials are hoping that having a campus in the valley can attract more students to stay in the valley to get their education," she added.

Anime Expo, the largest North American anime convention, which runs July 1-4 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, provides one of the best people-watching experiences you can have in the city — and that's without even having to pay to go inside.

Last year’s turnstile attendance was 260,700, which was a 40,700 increase from 2014. Attendees can expect more this year after the Society for the Promotion of Japanese Animation, the organization that puts on the Expo, expanded the exhibit hall space by 40%, according to the group’s new CEO, Ray Chiang.
