City of Champions Stadium is the temporary name of a sports and entertainment complex to be built in Inglewood, California, United States, about 3 miles (5 km) from Los Angeles International Airport and adjacent to The Forum. The stadium will serve as the home of the Los Angeles Rams of the National Football League (NFL) when it opens in 2019.

Per our friends over at UrbanizeLA, this 6-story senior living facility and synagogue will be rising right in my neighborhood, at the SE corner of Beverly Blvd and Crescent Heights:



Quote:
... [the Los Angeles Jewish Home] announced plans for a new eldercare facility in the Beverly-Fairfax area, a short distance west of the Grove. The project, which would rise on Beverly Boulevard between Crescent Heights Boulevard and Laurel Avenue, is being developed in conjunction with local real estate firm Black Equities Group.

Plans call for the construction of a six-story building featuring 100 residential units, separated into independent living, assisted living and memory care units. At ground level, space would be set aside for the new synagogue of Congregation Beth Israel, an Orthodox Jewish congregation which currently occupies a building on the site. A two-level garage would sit beneath the building, offering parking accommodations for up to 137 vehicles.

The proposed development would also include a Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE), a the gap between independent and assited living. Dubbed the "Brandman Centers for Senior Care," the PACE Center would be open to residents of both the new building and the surrounding neighborhood.

The project is being designed by Belzberg Architects, a local firm which previously worked on the nearby Museum of the Holocaust in Pan Pacific Park.
It's a nice design, for my money, and I appreciate that someone is finally willing to build more than three stories on this stretch. My only qualm is that it'll require the demolition of the Taschen Gallery a funky midcentury that's hosted some great art exhibitions in the past.

Plans Revived for Stalled Hollywood Tower

Stalled plans for a residential tower on the Hollywood Walk of Fame have been revived.

The proposed development, slated for the southwest corner of Hollywood Boulevard and Gower Street, would consist of a 23-story building featuring 220 residential units and 4,850 square feet of ground-floor commercial space. A case filing from the Los Angeles Department of City Planning indicates that the tower would also include a parking garage with subterranean and above-grade levels.

As currently planned, the project is contigent on several discretionary approvals by the City of Los Angeles, including a zone change and a site plan review.

L.A. County to Consider Redevelopment of Koreatown Properties

Last August, Los Angeles County issued a request for proposals to redevelop a series of dilapidated properties in Koreatown. This Tuesday, the Board of Supervisors is poised to vote on whether or not to move forward with the public-private partnership, which has been dubbed the Vermont Corridor.

Trammell Crow Company (TCC), which was selected over four other applicants, is expected to develop three buildings on the county-owned parcels featuring a combination of apartments, government offices and pedestrian-oriented commercial space. The three development sites, which flank Vermont Avenue between 4th and 6th Streets, currently comprise more than a half-million square feet of office space for the Los Angeles County Departments of Mental Health (DMH), Parks and Recreation, Community and Senior Services and Children and Family Service.

The most prominent site, located at 510-532 S. Vermont Avenue, is to be redeveloped into a 400,000-square-foot office building which would serve as the headquarters of the Department of Mental Health. The building, which is budgeted at approximatley $270 million, would also include 10,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space and nearly 1,900 parking spaces.

76 Years Celebrating Nisei Week

Since the 1880s, Little Tokyo has been a cultural and civic center for Japanese Americans in Southern California. It’s a community anchored by multi-generational family businesses, churches, and temples. One of the neighborhood’s oldest traditions is the annual Nisei Week festival, first celebrated in 1934.

Fly Through the NoHo West Development

A new promotional video offers a flythrough tour of NoHo West, the proposed redevelopment of the San Fernando Valley's soon-to-be vacant Laurel Plaza shopping center.

The future mixed-use complex, located at 6150 Laurel Canyon Boulevard, is expected to create a walkable neighborhood featuring offices, apartments and ground-level shops and restaurants. A total of 742 residential units would be provided in three-to-six-story buildings along the perimeter of the 25-acre site. An existing four-story structure near the center of the property, currently a Macy's department store, would be repurposed as approximately 500,000 square feet of office space.

NoHo West, as designed by Los Angeles-based architecture firm Altoon Partners, would be centered around a pedestrian-only street running diagonally through the property. The paseo would be flanked with approximatley 190,000 square feet of commercial space, including a gym, a supermarket and a cinema multiplex.

Parking for the new development would provided within a new eight-story structure along the SR-170 freeway, as well is in an underground garage beneath the new residential buildings.

Long-Stalled Park Fifth Development Begins Work
Construction begins for the mixed-use complex near Pershing Square.

Last week, MacFarlane Partners quietly began work for the first phase of the Park Fifth development, with the demolition of a small parking garage adjacent to the historic Subway Terminal Building. In its place, the San Francisco-based real estate firm intends to construct a seven-story building which will span between Olive and Hill Streets. Plans call for 313 apartments and 7,000 square feet of ground-floor commercial space.

Although representatives of the developer have not specified an expected groundbreaking date, earlier reports have pointed to completion of the project in 2018.

The building, which will consist of a wood frame over a concrete base, is being designed by Portland-based Ankrom Moisan Architects. A second phase of the project, a 24-story tower with 348 apartments and retail space, is expected to follow at corner of 5th and Olive Streets.

Most of the North American architecture lately seems to be either cheap and ugly, faux-historic or glass boxes. There's barely any middle ground.

Three developers under consideration for $200 million Dana Point Harbor revitalization

Three development teams are in the running to head a $200 million renovation project planned to breathe life back into the 44-year-old Dana Point Harbor.

In March, OC Parks officials announced they were seeking a qualified developer to design plans to upgrade the harbor and its surrounding retail area to make it a more prominent Orange County destination.

The project includes reconstruction of the commercial core, the east and west marinas, the Marina Inn Hotel and 52 guest slips. Under the proposed public-private partnership, a developer would design, fund and build the proposed improvements, then operate those portions of the harbor over a 50-year lease, before returning the improved property back to the county.

Background materials from the three teams are being reviewed, and interviews will be held later this month, officials said.

The project will require a multifaceted team experienced in both sides of harbor development – land and sea, said Fifth District Supervisor Lisa Bartlett, who chairs the board and served on the Dana Point City Council from 2006-14.

Queen Mary is getting a bow to stern makeover — and a club in the boiler room

When Joshua Schwandt stayed at the Queen Mary several years ago, he loved the Art Deco woodwork and the way the Observation Bar oozed an old-timey feel.

He wasn’t as ecstatic about his aging hotel room. The shower only drizzled water, and the bed felt like “one of those dorm room beds that have been slept on for 50 years,” he recalled.

“The ship is just super cool,” the 35-year old human resources worker said. “But I think in this day and age, you just have an expectation of more comfort or class.”

With consumers like Schwandt in mind, the city of Long Beach and a local developer are expected to reveal a privately financed $15-million makeover of the ship Wednesday — part of a larger effort to bring more people to the retired ocean liner and develop the 45 acres adjacent to it.

For the renovations, Los Angeles developer Urban Commons — which took over a long-term lease for the city-owned ship and adjacent land earlier this year — said it wants to give the Queen Mary the luxuries of a boutique hotel, while preserving the feel of a “bygone era.”

Who the hell do you think you are!??..Andrea Palladio??
Seems like you don't know much about what's going on in North America!
You have to be a provocative genius like Gehry to say that"In the world we live in, 98 per cent of what gets built and designed today is pure shit"
...I guess he was mostly thinking about Europ,Asia and middle east!

Well, 95% of what gets built today is shit or nondescript indeed. All across the globe.

Per Curbed today, Jerry Brown may sign SB734 imminently, which would effectively fast-track many significant projects' CEQA environmental impact process, particularly the time spent in court:

Quote:
Four Los Angeles megaprojects could be built faster if a bill approved by the state Legislature this week is signed by Gov. Jerry Brown, the Los Angeles Times reports. The bill, SB 734, would force lawsuits brought against the projects under the California Environmental Quality Act to move more quickly through the courts. Better known as CEQA, the act requires cities and counties to analyze and find ways to reduce the impacts of new development on traffic, air quality, views, etc.

SB 734 would only apply to projects that cost more than $100 million, pay high wages to construction workers, and meet certain green building standards, according to the Times. The newspaper says the legislation aims to make sure lawsuits brought against development projects accused of violating CEQA wrap up within nine months.

The tri-towered Crossroads of the World redevelopment, the Yucca-Argyle development (which includes a 32-story tower), the freeway-capping Hollywood Central Park, and a reboot of Elysian Park’s Barlow Hospital are all expected to apply for the benefits of this bill if it passes. Supporters of the bill say it could shave as many as three years off the projects’ timelines.
Plenty more in the main article, but the long-and-short of it is that (to no one's great surprise) plenty of groups oppose the passage of the bill, including the Sierra Club and the Coalition to Preserve LA.

I'm mixed on it. On the one hand it does seem like NIMBY groups have heavily abused the courts in order to put a stop to projects of any remotely significant development. Then again, environmental review is an important process and LA pols a reputation for giving developers the keys to the kingdom. I wouldn't be surprised if Brown sends it back down to the legislature for revisions to make the eligibility requirements more stringent. But an immediate rubber stamp wouldn't surprise me either.

Disneyland plans 6,800-space parking structure and pedestrian bridge

Disney intends to construct a transportation hub, a massive parking structure and a pedestrian bridge over Harbor Boulevard connecting them with Disneyland and Disney California Adventure ahead of the opening of “Star Wars” land in its signature theme park.

According to documents filed Wednesday in City Hall, the company proposes to start building a seven-story, 6,800-space parking structure next year along Disney Way.

The park also plans to shutter its current transportation hub, where buses from some Disney parking lots and hotel shuttles drop off visitors near the theme parks’ main gates to build the new one on a Disney-owned site about a half-mile away on Manchester Avenue.

The Carousel Inn and Suites, which Disney purchased last year for $32 million, would close in October and eventually get razed to make way for a pedestrian walkway leading from the new transit hub to the bridge 20 feet above Harbor.

Parkgoers would go through security and then take the bridge toward the entrances of Disneyland and Disney California Adventure. There are no plans for a moving walkway.

"This will help bring more people to the parks to check out the ‘Star Wars’ land and Marvel attractions they are planning in the future,” said Robert Niles, editor at ThemeParkInsider.com. “Clearly, Disney needs more parking to accommodate the new and returning visitors. ... Fans will welcome this."

Planning commission approves project that could 'transform' South LA

The Reef would bring outdoor plazas, a farmers’ market, public gardens, and more than 1 million square feet of new buildings—two high-rise towers, a hotel, a grocery store, a pharmacy, restaurants, plus more than 1,000 apartments and condos—to 9.7 acres just south of the 10 freeway. The developer has planned for all of those units to be sold and rented at market rate, making them wildly out-of-reach of many of the people who actually live in the neighborhood.

TAKING HIGH-SPEED RAIL UNDERGROUND

The California High-Speed Rail is starting its first underground project to accommodate trains passing through Downtown Fresno. Construction will eventually impact traffic on Highway 180 in the coming months.

Heavy machinery is in place for a project that will give the downtown area a major facelift. A two-mile long Fresno trench must be dug to fit through a Highway 180 passageway. The High-Speed Rail route will begin to dip near Roeding Park along the union pacific tracks.

"Between Olive and Belmont that's where we start getting depressed. We go underneath this whole area and we come back a little bit north of Stanislaus," said Hugo Mejia, Design and Construction manager.

Mejia said it will take between 18 to 24 months to dig the trench under 180, the Dry Creek Canal, as well as a Union Pacific Spur track.

"The trench is 45 feet deep or so going underneath these facilities you see here."

Caltrans crews are also in the midst of moving a two and a half mile stretch of Highway 99 near Clinton about 100 feet to the west. But the LA Times reports the project is behind schedule and over budget-- needing an additional $35 million more from the state.
