Los Angeles And San Francisco Vie For Innovation Status

Technology innovation has now become so ingrained with the growth of local economies that many cities are seeing more than one hub spring up within their boundaries. Two prominent examples are in California — Los Angeles and San Francisco.

The Northern California Bay Area is now comprised of two distinct districts — the traditional, hard core tech-focused Silicon Valley centered on Santa Clara and the startups of all kinds in San Francisco’s Mission district and surroundings.

In Southern California, the key hubs are defined as Silicon Beach around Santa Monica area and towards the mountains — let’s call it for now, Silicon Gabriel, for now – in Pasadena.

In both markets, accelerators, incubators, co-working spaces, startups and business services vie for best positioning. It’s important to be at the center of activity, particularly for those catering to the millennial generation, who aren’t about to spend hours in a car getting to work.

Southern California's aerospace industry, long in decline, begins to stir

But analysts and industry leaders believe that the sector is poised to grow again, behind a new generation of entrepreneurial private space companies like SpaceX in Hawthorne and Virgin Galactic, and defense projects such as the B-21 long-range strike bomber, which could bring thousands of jobs to the area.

Southern California — with its ideal climate, open land and high-powered universities — has been a major player in the aerospace industry since the early 20th century.

The industry is now more diverse. Big programs include space launch-service providers and various satellite makers as well as drone manufacturers, such as Monrovia’s AeroVironment Inc.

The drone industry, in particular, is one of Southern California’s new strong points.

AeroVironment has emerged as the largest supplier of small, unmanned aircraft systems to the Pentagon, and spy drones such as Global Hawk and Triton are assembled by Northrop in Palmdale. Boeing’s unmanned undersea vehicles are made at its Phantom Works facility in Huntington Beach.

A more diverse customer base may help smooth the notorious employment downturns, which were usually driven by federal budget cuts or the end of big contracts. SpaceX, Virgin Galactic and Los Angeles-based launch company Rocket Lab have all filled their satellite-launch manifests with both government and commercial contracts.

The industry also is geographically dispersed. Out in Mojave, Vulcan Aerospace is building Stratolaunch, a plane that will have the largest wingspan ever and is to launch satellites into orbit. Other companies like XCOR Aerospace Inc. and micro-satellite launch firm Vector Space Systems have established facilities in the desert city, where open land allows for rocket test firings.

Vector is based in Tucson but its engineering operations are in Huntington Beach, a decision made because of the deep knowledge of rocketry in the region, said Jim Cantrell, the company’s chief executive.

”There’s probably more rocket engine and launch vehicle expertise in Southern California than anywhere else in the United States or probably the world,” he said.

“L.A.’s got something different that nobody can compete with,” said Chad Anderson, managing director of Space Angels Network, an early-stage investor group in private space companies. “They’ve got a fantastic desert and an operational spaceport.”

Yeah, there's nothing wrong with overview shots when it includes some current projects, but let's at least stick to photos that were taken within the last couple months. A couple of those DTLA skyline shots seem to be from mid-2015 or earlier.

Whoa! Per LAist today:

Clippers Interested In Moving To The Westside, Says Report

Steve Ballmer—Microsoft bigshot, Clippers owner, and general crazy man—is looking at sites for a potential new arena, reports ESPN.

So where, possibly, will this new Clippers arena be? Sources tell ESPN that Ballmer has his sights set on the westside, though it's too early to pinpoint an exact location.

Under their current lease, the Clippers will remain at The Staples Center until 2024. But, according to sources who spoke with ESPN, Ballmer (and the team), are growing weary about being regarded as the "third tenant" behind the Lakers and the Kings; the Clippers get a smaller share of suites and club seats, and less of a say in scheduling.

As noted by the L.A. Times, there are various issues with being placed behind the Lakers and the Kings. Sometimes, the Clippers are forced to practice in their locker room because they don't have a basketball court—crews are still dismantling the ice rink from a prior Kings game. Other times, the team may play a home game that’s sandwiched between two road games. "We're third guy in, we have third choice in dates," Ballmer said in an interview with The Times' Bill Plaschke.

A new arena will also mean that Ballmer has a bigger say in the fan experience. And, from what we gather, Ballmer is all about making experiences as intense (and scary?) as possible. Baller told a crowd at this month's Geekwire's Sports Tech Summit that he liked the idea of upgrading broadband capacity and instilling an "augmented reality experience" at arenas. So the Clippers are gonna hold a Pokemon Go night? Awesome.

...

While Ballmer may be thinking of moving to a new arena, the consensus is that he has no intentions of moving the team out of L.A.

The Clippers, as you may remember, had played at the Los Angeles Sports Arena from 1984 to 1999 before they'd moved to the Staples Center.

The issue of building new arenas is a contentious one. Developers and sports executives say that new arenas can revitalize nearby areas, bring in tax revenue, and generate new fanfare for local teams. But, as noted at The Atlantic, the obligations can also be a big money sink for tax payers. A 2015 research conducted at Stanford said that NFL stadiums are not a big boon for their respective cities. "[The] incremental tax revenue is not sufficient to cover any significant financial contribution by the city," said researcher Roger Noll.
Super serious question: where on the Westside could a new arena possibly fit? From a NIMBY standpoint, you'd think Santa Monica, Beverly Hills and West Hollywood will be out of the question... But screw it, why not indulge in some reckless speculation?
  • One of the big lots adjacent to the new Expo/Sepulveda Metro station might be big enough, and would obviously have great freeway and transit access.
  • If the 30-story tower proposed at La Cienega/Jefferson gets axed, that's a very large site with a lot of potential.
  • And then there's the question of the tower proposed at Constellation and Avenue of the Stars in Century City, which was on shaky ground (ha) last I recall. Not exactly a nightlife destination, but there will be a Purple Line stop by the time the Clippers would consider moving, and the players could visit their agents at CAA right across the street.

Any other ideas? Any other large assemblages currently in development hell? I guess you might find something around the airport, or one of the industrial parks in Hawthrone. And I'd fully support demolishing Park La Brea or the Beverly Center to be replaced by an arena, but that's just a fantasy of mine...

EDIT: And I completely missed that there's already a thread for this project here.

UCLA prepares to move forward with new graduate art studios funded by Margo Leavin

When famed Los Angeles gallerist Margo Leavin announced in May that she would make a $20-million donation to UCLA to remake the school’s grungy graduate art studios, the move was celebrated for the investment it brought to an important public educational institution. Now the project is moving forward, as the UC Board of Regents gathers Tuesday to approve the plan.

“It’s crucial,” says Levin. “I don’t think public universities — or any university — has a problem raising funds for medicine, stem cell research, health, etc. But the arts do not have as wide of an audience. And UCLA is a jewel of a school.”

Desert Trip to nearly double the economic impact in Coachella Valley

The annual Coachella music blowout in Indio has become big business for the Palm Springs area, growing even bigger with the addition of the Stagecoach country music weekend in 2007.

But now a third music festival, targeting baby boomers and classic rock fans, is expected to nearly double the spending generated by the two established music celebrations.

The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival and the Stagecoach Country Music Festival drew 250,000 music lovers to the Empire Polo Grounds over three weekends this spring, sparking an estimated economic impact of more than $403 million, according to a new economic study.

And with the addition of a third festival slated for October, dubbed Desert Trip, the projected economic impact of all the music celebrations combined will nearly double to $805 million, said Michael Bracken, managing partner and chief economist at Development Management Group, the contract economist for Goldenvoice, the promoter of the festivals.

Is Frank Gehry Finally Building his Dream Home?

Renowned architect Frank Gehry has been talking for years about building a new home to free himself and his family from the quirky Santa Monica residence they've lived in since the 70s, one of his first big statements on deconstructivism. In 2004, the Los Angeles Times interviewed Gehry about his budding plans to build a new house in a low-key corner of Venice. The compound was designed to be decidedly unlike anything the architect had done before, a request of his wife, Berta.

Gehry has waited more than a decade to begin construction on his dream home, at one point abandoning the site in Venice to begin designing a second Santa Monica house, a dramatic structure with a playful roof and huge timber beams. Work is underway now on both properties—two new homes by a Los Angeles architect who continues to brand this city with his postmodernist style.

I'm not complaining, really. It's just that we have photo forums that are better suited for the kind of picture he posted. The threads at City/Metro Compilations are project-dedicated.

Other than that, keep up the great work, saiholmes!

Redlands, Santa Fe Springs get millions for transportation projects

Two train-related projects in Southern California received a portion of the $500 million in competitive grants awarded Friday by the U.S. Department of Transportation.

In the Inland Empire, the Redlands Passenger Rail Project received $8.6 million in grant money. The project, which would cost about $262 million, proposes to extend rail service nine miles from downtown San Bernardino to the University of Redlands.

In Santa Fe Springs, in southeast Los Angeles County, the Department of Transportation awarded $15 million to build the Rosecrans/Marquardt Grade Separation Project. The total cost of the project is $137 million.

A 2024 releases renderings of updated Coliseum, temporary swim stadium

LA 2024 officials have released artist renderings of an updated Coliseum and temporary swim stadium that would be used if Los Angeles is awarded the 2024 Summer Olympics.

Some of the proposed upgrades to the Coliseum would be included in USC’s planned renovation of the historic stadium, a project that is currently estimated at $270 million but could grow larger.

“Our goal with all of our venue choices has been first and foremost to deliver an excellent field of play and the perfect conditions for the athletic performances of a lifetime,” LA 2024 chairman Casey Wasserman said. “After that, we have tried to create an interesting blend of ultra-modern venues and upgraded iconic sites.”

Construction For The California High-Speed Rail Is Chugging Right Along

The California High-Speed Rail Authority (“CHSRA”) issued a press release with the status of its construction work for the high-speed rail project (the “Project”) at seven active sites in the Central Valley. Many of the Project’s segments in Madera and Fresno are beginning to see development; the foundation has been established in several sections, rebar cages to form columns have been tied, and steel and concrete girders to rebuild the Tuolumne Street Bridge have been put into place.

The CHSRA’s realignment of State Route 99 from Clinton to Ashlan, is also underway to make way for the Project. As of March 31, 2016, the Finance and Audit Committee announced that the CHSRA has acquired 28 properties along State Route 99 through negotiated contracts or stipulated orders of possession. As of the last Finance and Audit Committee in May 2016, an additional 16 properties still need to be acquired by the CHSRA to complete the realignment of State Route 99.
