LACMA's $600-Million Makeover Revealed

After years of planning, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) has launched an official website for its proposed $600-million makeover, which would extend the campus over and across Wilshire Boulevard.

The project, designed by the Swiss architect Peter Zumthor, is dubbed the LACMA Building for the Permanent Collection. According to its website, the approximately 368,000-square-foot structure would be comprised by eight semi-transparent pavilions supporting a main exhibition level. The main exhibition level would extend over Wilshire Boulevard to a separate museum-owned property on the south side of the street.

71Above Restaurant Opens Atop Tallest Building West Of Mississippi

When 71Above opens atop the tallest building in Los Angeles this week, the restaurant may shatter one of the classic rules of dining out, which is: never eat at a place touted mainly for its views. With talented chef Vartan Abgaryan, formerly of L.A.’s Cliff’s Edge, at the helm and Emil Eyvazoff, who brought us Elevate Lounge, behind the scenes, this could be a rare case where the entrees and sides are as breathtaking as the sight lines.

The restaurant opens Friday after more than two years of planning and construction that was part of a $50 million overhaul of downtown’s U.S. Bank Tower, the highest structure west of the Mississippi.

Tag Front is the architecture firm behind the modern, artful room that plays up the 360-degree views that stretch from the San Gabriel Mountains to the Pacific Ocean. The panorama of glass panes automatically darkens with the light of day and lightens again with nightfall for views that are guaranteed spectacular. Tables are made from white oak and there’s really not a bad seat in the house.

“Forever Marilyn” could be back in Palm Springs by the end of September, as officials work through the details of possibly locating a temporary site for the 26-foot-tall head-turner.

“The tribe has expressed interest to have it temporarily installed right across from the new entrance at the Spa Resort Casino, which is on the corner of (Calle) Encilia and Andreas (Road) for a period of a couple of years, and they will foot the bill for that,” Aftab Dada, chair of the organization PS Resorts, told the Palm Springs City Council on Wednesday night.

DTLA's Freehand Hotel Reveals Itself

The adaptive reuse of a vintage office building in Downtown Los Angeles is beginning to show results.

The Freehand Los Angeles, a $40-million undertaking by the Sydell Group, is repurposing the 13-story Commercial Exchange Building at the intersection of 8th and Olive Streets. The former office building, built in 1924, will feature 226 guest rooms and ancillary uses above ground-floor restaurant space.

Under designs from Killefer Flammang Architects, the adaptive reuse project will offer a mixture of traditional hotel rooms and hostel-type accommodations. Plans also call for a number of guest amenities, including multiple lounges, a fitness center and a rooftop pool deck.

Completion is expected by late 2016

Downtown’s Broadway Trade Center prepares for its epic transformation

A photo taken Downtown about two and a half weeks ago showed a line of 150 concrete trucks queued up along Hill Street. It turned out that the trucks weren’t coming to pour for any of the towers planned for Spring Street or a 50-story skyscraper planned at Eighth and Olive, but for the Broadway Trade Center (BTC), where a massive mixed-use project containing a hotel, a Grand Central Market-esque food hall, retail, a private club, multiple bars, and a rooftop public space is planned.

The trucks were literally laying the foundation for the adaptive reuse project to take shape: Seismic standards required that the foundation for the 108-year-old former department store be redone so that it would be sturdy enough to meet modern standards.

That sounds like a lot of work to do before the build-out to change the inside even starts, but it’s all part of the territory when dealing with adaptive reuse, says project manager Sarah Cahill of Omgivning, the architecture firm handling the overhaul. Curbed toured the building at Eighth Street between Hill and Broadway a couple weeks ago with Omgivning and got a firsthand look inside the BTC. There’s a lot of work to be done before the project opens, renewed.

Pacific City's 516-unit luxury complex coming into focus

Billed as “the next wave in leaseable luxury,” the complex – which broke ground in November – is coming together quickly. After the first building opens in January, five more buildings will be phased in and are scheduled to be completed by January 2018. In all, it will consist of 516 units, ranging from studios to three-bedroom penthouses.

The apartments are the final piece of a retail, hotel and housing complex on 31 acres of land owned by three developers, including UDR of Denver, which owns the Residences.

At the center of the housing, which will be arrayed in a semi-circle that looks toward the ocean and Huntington Beach Pier to the north, is Berger’s favorite part of the project: a curved residents’ amenities building, nicknamed “the Wave” and designed to resemble a breaker rolling toward shore.

The unique building sits next to an equally unusual 5,000-square-foot pool with an island that holds a television with a 15-foot diagonal screen to show movies and sports events. When not in use,
