2024 Summer Olympics | Games of the XXXIII Olympiad - Candidate Cities
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...874381&page=40

Quote:



It would not be overstating it to call Allyson Felix the poster girl for the U.S. Olympic Track Trials.

After all, her likeness appears on a oversized billboard stretching across much of the back of Hayward Field’s iconic East grandstand, Felix, who competed locally at Los Angeles Baptist High School, looming, as she has over American track and field for much of the past dozen years, several times larger than life.

The 2016 Trials were supposed to be a dress rehearsal for Felix’s attempt at the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro at a feat accomplished by a man or woman only three times in Olympic history — sweeping the 200 and 400-meter sprints.

Two months ago, Allyson Felix couldn’t walk, hobbled when she descended from a pull-up and landed on a medicine ball instead of on the gym floor. Her right ankle collapsed. So, it seemed, did her dreams of a 200-400 Olympic double.

“My first thoughts were, ‘I can’t believe this is happening,’” she said. “It seemed like everything was over.”

On Sunday, the Los Angeles native and USC alumna blazed off the final curve and won the women’s 400 meters at the U.S. Olympic trials in 49.68 seconds, the fastest time in the world this year.

She has had smoother runs in winning four Olympic gold medals, including the 200 at London in 2012. She has had races that were more comfortable than she did Sunday, when adrenaline masked her pain.

La Plaza Cultura Village Breaks Ground:


http://urbanize.la/post/la-plaza-cul...-breaks-ground

It's good to see parking lots converted into mixed use development but it's disappointing to see that they took nothing from either the Spanish colonial architecture of Olvera Street or the Art Deco architecture of Civic Center, just the usual jumble of clashing facades meant to simulate an active urban tableau.

Hollywood Park Casino in Inglewood aims to turn around its fortunes with new digs

Now, Hollywood Park’s owners hope to turn around the club’s fortunes around with a move to a bigger facility next door designed to draw the wealthy clientele who will be visiting the $1.86-billion pro football stadium scheduled to open in three years in an adjacent multiuse development.

The 110,000-square-foot building will be nearly 40% larger, will hold 35 more gaming tables and include a new sit-down restaurant and sports bar, featuring a giant, dual-sided television screen, he said.

The larger casino will target big-spending football fans visiting the City of Champions Stadium to root on the Rams, the NFL team that has returned to Southern California after more than two decades away.

Carson might get outlet mall on land once eyed for NFL stadium

The City Council voted 5-0 Tuesday night to begin exclusive negotiations with Macerich Real Estate Co. to develop a portion of the 157-acre site alongside the 405 Freeway. This is the second time in four years the city has entered into an agreement for a freeway-facing outlet mall on the property that stretches from Del Amo to Avalon boulevards.

The Santa Monica company wants to erect a 500,000-square-foot outlet center with 150 high-end stores that would take up a fourth of the site. Macerich promised to front the city $1 million to cover fees for preparing the documents to pass over control of the land, and $250,000 of that is slated to go into the city’s community nonprofit fund.

The city hopes the momentum from the project will entice developers to build out the rest of the property, though it isn’t yet clear when construction will begin, and the deal could potentially fall through again — though Macerich has already invested about $2 million in its initial studies of the site, according to the city.

The proposed development, called the Alla Road Creative Campus, would consist of a trio of two-story buildings near the western terminus of the Marina Freeway. Plans call for approximately 155,000 square feet of office space, in addition to a one-acre outdoor courtyard and a parking garage for 600 vehicles.

Continental and Mar Ventures are marketing the proposed campus as an extension of the creative office boom in nearby Playa Vista, which is now home to companies such as Google and Yahoo. The two companies have previously collaborated on a number of projects in the South Bay, including the 15-acre Elevon complex in El Segundo.

Being a south Pas native, I can assure you that a modification such as that will completely ruin the bridge.
