Disneyland releases new image of 'Star Wars' land

The Millennium Falcon is shown in the distance at a docking bay in a new artist rendering released Monday, surrounded by a forest, rock spires and futuristic buildings and landing pads. It is the latest rendering released by Disney to build interest for the park’s biggest expansion ever.

Construction of the new land, part of a bigger $1-billion upgrade effort at the resort, began in April but Disney officials haven’t said when the project will be open to the public. The land will feature two attractions, including a ride that lets visitors fly the Millennium Falcon in a secret mission.

Your only chance to get inside the grand Bullocks Wilshire happens this month

On Sunday, July 31, visitors can step back into the building's 1920s splendor with docent-led tours of the landmark's interior. Tickets are already on sale; a limited number of reservations are available across five time slots and cost $25 per person.

If you want to splurge on high tea, make a reservation for Saturday afternoon instead during "A Summer Day at Bullocks Wilshire." The day begins with a docent-led tour of the building, followed by lunch from the original Bullocks Wilshire menu in the former Tea Room (Huell Howser documented the room's final days and restoration). Tickets are extremely limited and go on sale Tuesday, July 12 at 10am for $75.

Rams to inform fans they've sold out season tickets, will begin selling single-game tickets

Those deposit holders were contacted in waves on a first-come, first-served basis, and roughly 24,000 of them bought the entire allotment of 70,000 tickets. By the time the franchise got through the first six hours of deposits, the season tickets were gone.

“To sell out of season tickets in the first six hours upon our return to Los Angeles is both humbling and a reminder of how excited Angelinos are about the return of the Rams and the NFL,” Kevin Demoff, Rams chief operating officer, said in an email to The Times. “As both Los Angeles’ first pro sports team and its newest sports team, the bond between this team and the community is evident and strengthening each day.”

This week, the Rams will begin selling single-game tickets, making those available first to the deposit holders on the list who have yet to be contacted, again in the order they placed their deposits earlier this year.

I wonder if they are making improvements to The Coliseum and surrounding blocks for the Rams new season.

Turner/AECOM Selected To Build New Stadium For Los Angeles Rams

Hollywood Park Land Company, which is owned by The Kroenke Group, said today that it has selected the team of Turner Construction Co. and AECOM to oversee construction of a 70,000-seat stadium for the Los Angeles Rams. This new, world-class sports and entertainment venue is the centerpiece of a 298-acre mixed-use project being built in Inglewood, California by Hollywood Park Land Company.

Turner/AECOM is a joint venture combining two of the world's largest construction and engineering management firms. Between them, they have built 17 stadiums for National Football League teams and renovated 10 others. Over the past 15 years, Turner and AECOM have been the two largest builders of sports venue projects in the world.

"After a competitive review of a number of outstanding construction firms, we have hired the best team to build the largest and most technologically advanced sports stadium in the world for the Los Angeles Rams," said Terry Fancher, president of the Hollywood Park Land Co. "These firms also offered a well-developed plan for meeting Hollywood Park's commitment to provide substantial employment opportunities for local Inglewood residents and meaningful economic participation in the stadium construction process for minority-owned business enterprises."

"This is a key milestone in the process of bringing the NFL and the Rams back to Los Angeles," said Kevin Demoff, chief operating officer & executive vice president of football operations of the Los Angeles Rams. "While we will call the LA Coliseum home for the next three seasons, we are pleased to work with Turner/AECOM to build our new stadium in Inglewood. This world-class venue will showcase not only NFL games, but also international and national events, in 2019 and beyond."

Turner Construction Co. is the largest general contractor in North America and has more than 40 offices across the U.S. and Canada. Turner has had a separate engagement for the past two years of providing demolition, grading and infrastructure construction services at the site of the former Hollywood Park racetrack.

AECOM is a publicly traded international project management and engineering-services company based in Los Angeles. AECOM employs more than 95,000 people worldwide and had revenue of $19 billion in fiscal 2015.

Robert Iger joins L.A. Olympic bid campaign

Robert Iger, chairman and chief executive of Walt Disney Co., has joined Los Angeles’ campaign to host the 2024 Summer Olympics.

The LA 2024 bid committee -- a private group working to secure the Games -- announced the addition of one of Hollywood’s top executives to its board of directors on Tuesday morning.

"Bob’s bold, innovative leadership at the helm of the world’s largest media company is one of the key reasons that Los Angeles speaks to young people all over the world every day,” Gene Sykes, the committee’s chief executive, said in a statement. “Now, we're delighted that he's going to share his expertise with LA 2024.”

$300-Million Redondo Beach Waterfront Project Moves Ahead

The proposed $300-million development from real estate firm CenterCal Properties reimagines approximately 36 acres of land surrounding the Redondo Beach Pier as a waterfront village, featuring more than 500,000 square feet of recreational and commercial facilities.

The northern half of the project site, currently an expansive parking lot with several small restaurants, would be developed with new commercial buildings featuring a specialty theater, a public market and creative office space. A new main street - flanked by shops and restaurants - would cut through the center of the property.

The existing Seaside Lagoon would be modified with a new boat launch ramp, a parking structure, a bicycle path and enhanced pedestrian access. Additionally, plans call for approximately 11 acres of green space throughout the project.

At the southern portion of the site, plans call for the demolition of the several existing structures, including the a plaza, the International Boardwalk and the Pier parking garage. In their place, CenterCal would construct a 120-room boutique hotel, a new parking garage, as well as pedestrian-oriented shops and restaurants.

Construction is expected to commence in 2017.

The Summer Olympics Should Always Be in Los Angeles. Forever.

Rio is an extreme example of what happens to almost all cities that host the summer Olympics. These days hosting the summer Games runs between $15 billion and $20 billion. With some good fortune, hosting may produce $4.5 billion in revenue—yielding a deficit of $5 billion to $10 billion. Not a favorable financial balance in the short run.

The roughly $20 billion that will be spent on Rio’s Olympics has pushed the city over the edge financially. The state and the city are bankrupt. Teachers are on strike. Public servants are protesting, carrying “Welcome to Hell” signs at the airport to greet incoming tourists. Meanwhile, the economy is in its worst recession in decades, unemployment exceeds 11%, and violence flourishes on the streets.

Christine Lagarde, head of the International Monetary Fund, recently said she would favor having Athens as the permanent host of the summer Olympics. The logic is mostly sound: why not build the required 35 sports venues, the Olympic village and the broadcasting and media center only once, instead of building them anew in a different city every four years? There are three problems with this symbolically soothing suggestion: one, what is Athens going to do with the venues for the three years and 348 days between each Olympic spectacle? Two, aren’t there better uses of thousands of acres of scarce urban real estate? Three, where is Athens to find the $2 billion it will need for security at each Olympics?

There’s a better idea: make Los Angeles the permanent host. It has all the venues, the needed infrastructure and the hotels.
