Wincome Group, Disney to get $550 million from tax revenues for building luxury hotels

"These hotels aren’t just for the visitors, they are for the residents,” Lucille Kring said. “We get back what they produce."

‧ Good Hope International, an affiliate of Wincome Group, is building a $208 million, 580-room hotel on the current site of the Anaheim Plaza Hotel & Suites, near Disney California Adventure.

‧ A 630-room, $225 million development for FJS Inc., an affiliate of Wincome Group, will replace another of its existing properties, the Anabella Hotel, adjacent to the Anaheim Convention Center.

‧ Disney will construct a 700-room luxury hotel and parking structure on 10 acres along Disneyland Drive, at the north end of the Downtown Disney parking lot.

Congress Officially Backs LA’s 2024 Summer Olympics Bid

The effort to bring the 2024 Summer Olympics to Los Angeles got a boost from Congress, with its members voting to throw their support behind the event, officials said Friday.

A resolution backing the bid was unanimously passed by the House of Representatives earlier this week, and by the Senate Thursday, according to Sen. Dianne Feinstein, who co-sponsored the Senate version with Georgia senator Johnny Isakson.

“This resolution shows the International Olympic Committee that Congress is united behind Los Angeles to host the 2024 Summer Olympics,” Feinstein said.

Feinstein said the city’s “rich sporting legacy and history of cultural innovation make it the perfect backdrop to host a modern Olympiad.”

“Los Angeles is an international city that truly embodies the Olympic spirit and is ready to welcome the entire world to the United States,” she said.

Disneyland President Michael Colglazier also addressed the assembled troops last Thursday morning, as he gave one of his rare Business Updates on the state of the Resort. Once Michael shared slides of his familyís recent vacation to Shanghai Disneyland (seriously), he finally got to the business of the Disneyland Resort, and that business in Anaheim is very good. The entire Parks division has seen operating profit increase by 20% compared to last year, but almost all of that is due to increased overall attendance and soaring profit in Anaheim. Michael was diplomatic but very clear in explaining that the other parks around the world have had either flat or slightly lower attendance for the year, with weak earnings at the other properties.

But the Anaheim property has roared through the 60th Anniversary with record crowds and increased spending by those crowds. Anaheimís Resort District has added 2,000 new hotel rooms in the last 15 months (Great Wolf Lodge, Courtyard Mariott, Holiday Inn, Hyatt House, Marriott Springhill and others), with additional hotel projects currently under construction, and occupancy at the 22,000 hotel rooms now within the Resort District remains at an all-time high. (Itís hard to find a vacancy at the Grand Californian or Disneyland Hotel this summer on Expedia.) The impact to Disneyland is record numbers of domestic and foreign tourists in 2016 spending big bucks. So, while ďpeakĒ days may seem less crowded, those guest days have moved to alternate days and increased the total overall attendance, spending and profit.

Michael tactfully explained that not only has the Anaheim property been carrying the entire Parks division for the past year, but that Chairman Bob Chapek and the companyís Board of Directors have taken particular notice of Anaheimís stellar financial performance. The result is that additional funds have now been approved by the Board of Directors to be spent in Anaheim. The ticket tax deal that was struck with Anaheim a year ago dictates that $1.5 Billion needs to be spent on Disneyland Resort expansion in the next few years to avoid a tax for the next 45 years. But Michael announced that Burbank will now spend over $2 Billion dollars in Anaheim over the next four fiscal years, and that additional funding above that $2 Billion will be released next fiscal year for several additional projects.

New Lands, New Rides, More Hotel Rooms & Parking

That $2 Billion already approved will go towards Star Wars Land and all the rumored projects readers here already know about; the Pumbaa parking structure with Harbor Blvd. skybridge, the sprawling new luxury hotel and new parking structures on the existing Downtown Disney parking lots, as well as the re-Imagineering of Downtown Disney. The projects Michael wouldnít talk about in the Opera House last week are already known to most regular readers here, like the Frozen E Ticket and Arendelle village being planned for north of Fantasyland. The plans for DCA now include a total thematic rethink of the northern flanks of Hollywood Land that would take over Monsters Inc., Stage 17, Stage 12, the Sunset Showcase Theater, and beyond the park into some of the adjacent bus loading areas of the East Esplanade.

With all that expansion coming to the two parks, more parking will obviously be needed. Although the Pumbaa parking structure has yet to be officially announced, construction has already begun on that sprawling complex. The first office building at 1515 Manchester Ave has been demolished, and that northern piece of the property will become the new hotel shuttle bus loading area capable of handling dozens of buses at a time, replacing much of the existing loading areas that were built back in 1999. The new bus loading zone will lead to a landscaped plaza that becomes a broad walkway through what is now the Carousel Inn, before it heads over the skybridge across Harbor Blvd. and then winds along the very northern perimeter of the existing East Esplanade loading area.

The parking structure itself will be built in two phases, the first phase going on the existing footprint of the Pumbaa parking lot. The smaller office building between Pumbaa and the new bus loading zone will be demolished later and be part of a second phase of construction on the parking structure, as Disney canít get the Customs & Immigration Service at 1585 Manchester to end their long-term lease of that building early. The contractor who will build the parking structure has committed to an 18 month construction timetable, so the entire new facility should be open by the spring of 2018.

While that construction will free up a huge amount of acreage for DCA expansion due north of Hollywood Land, itís the southern flank of Hollywood Land that will see construction first. The plan to remake the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror into a Guardians of the Galaxy ride in 2017 is barreling ahead, and Tower of Terror is now planned to close this September. The project is slated to take until next May to complete, and will require reconstruction of the existing exterior queue as well as heavy modification to the interior queue and ride system itself.

The lack of a DCA parade has freed up the TDA planners to expand their plans for a much bigger Food & Wine Festival next spring, as well as begin working on a holiday themed food festival now planned for this November and December. TDA has struggled for over a decade with concepts designed to pull the huge Thanksgiving and Christmas crowds out of Disneyland and spread them to DCA, but nothing has really worked in the long run. Itís hoped that a new food festival themed to the holidays will at least pull some of the Annual Passholders over to DCA and let the tourists enjoy Disneylandís top-notch Christmas offerings. At least thatís what TDA hopes will happen.

Demoff said it’s crucial that the Inglewood location will have an entertainment district attached to the stadium.

“We had to give people a reason to come down,” he added. “We designed the stadium with Los Angeles and Hollywood in mind. The NBA has courtside seats and the NFL doesn’t, but our focus throughout the building is that you design it to replicate what we see in our daily lives in L.A. But the main thing is winning on the field. It starts with having a great football product.”

Kroenke noted that the return of the Rams coincides with the globalization of pro sports.

“When you look at where we are focused as a league, Rams are playing the Giants in London this season, Arsenal is playing over here and the NBA is playing games in London,” he said. “The upshot is that sports is so global, and within the last few years, and that’s where I think people are focusing for growth. Los Angeles is so important to NFL – some people call it gateway to South America and Asia.”

Downtown’s Music Center Plaza Is Getting a $30M Makeover

DTLA—Los Angeles County and Music Center officials on Monday revealed details for a major renovation of the 52-year-old Music Center Plaza, one that would allow for larger public events and strengthen connections with the neighboring Grand Park and Civic Center. If all goes according to plan, work on the $30 million project could start early next year and finish by the summer of 2018.

“What we want to see happening here is that this plaza will be transformed,” Solis told Los Angeles Downtown News. “They’re going to level [the plaza] off to have more ability to have more performances, and it will also lead very cleanly into the park, so we can have performances that really bring people through our Metro system, through bikes, walking, to converge here.”

A Q&A With Hilda Solis

The plan includes a number of elements, starting with eliminating the dips and rises in various parts of the plaza, which would improve connections to the Mark Taper Forum, Dorothy Chandler Pavilion and Ahmanson Theatre. This will also expand the event capacity from 1,500 to 2,500 people.

Another step involves widening the stairway at the Grand Avenue entrance. This will include the creation of a new water feature.

Moore said the work will open the stairs “way up, so you’ll be able to see straight up into what’s going on in the plaza.” She added, “We’re getting rid of the ‘tombstones’ which are on either side while widening the stairways all the way across, so it will be really easy to see from the street.”

Other elements of the overhaul include creating three new restaurants at a variety of price points. These will be enhanced by patio seating areas that also improve connections to the surrounding streets.
