Apartments Planned Around Former Sunkist Headquarters

The 8.3-acre site at Riverside Drive and Hazeltine Avenue is currently improved with Sunkist's home for more than a half-century: a three-story, 126,000-square-foot building designed by the architecture firm A.C. Martin. IMT plans to renovate the 1960s structure, which will be retained as creative office space in the new development. Proposed improvements include new landscaping and furnishing for the building's central atrium.

Plans for the property's sprawling parking lot call for the construction of a trio of low-rise buildings, featuring 298 residential units and nearly 40,000 square feet of neighborhood-serving commercial space. The completed development would include a total of 1,345 parking stalls for residents and commercial tenants, including a new garage located at the southeast corner of the site.

Sean Mannion leads Rams to victory over the Cowboys, 28-24, in preseason opener

The Rams made the move from St. Louis to Los Angeles, now it's time to play football. It's only an exhibition but the crowd at the Coliseum could be the largest ever for an NFL preseason game.

The ICON at Panorama City, proposed by the Beverly Hills-based Icon Company, would rise from a roughly nine-acre property at Roscoe Boulevard and Tobias Avenue, home to a long-vacant Montgomery Ward. Plans call the demolition of the former department store, followed by the construction of multiple low-rise and mid-rise structures, creating a combination of multifamily residential units and pedestrian-oriented shops and eateries.

Along the northern and western perimeters of the development site, ICON would offer a pair of residential buildings, with a combined total of 423 apartments. The seven-story structures would include a mixture of studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom units.

The eastern and southern perimeters of the development site are slated for five one- and two-story commercial buildings, creating 200,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space along a pedestrian paseo. The low-rise structures would wrap around a six-story, 1,060-car parking garage at the center of the property.

Preliminary renderings from Hochhauser Blatter, the architecture firm behind the project, portray a contemporary design for the mixed-use complex.

Construction of ICON is expected to take place over two years, beginning in late 2017 and finishing in late 2019. The project requires several discretionary approvals from the City of Los Angeles, including a zone change and a site plan review.

Five teams vie to build, operate people-mover at LAX

Five teams officially expressed interest in constructing and operating a people-mover at Los Angeles International Airport, officials said Friday.

The teams will next submit proposals detailing how they plan to make the $2.7 billion project happen, and how they would go about operating the people-mover once it has been built, according to Los Angeles World Airports, the city agency that operates LAX.

Tour of the soon-to-open new Hollywood Park Casino in Inglewood

Liberace would be at home among these elegant, plush lounges, custom bars and wood-and-leather gaming tables.

Inspired by increasingly popular Las Vegas-style casino resorts, the new Hollywood Park Casino — the first of several stunning developments promised in the Inglewood complex that will be home to the Los Angeles Rams — bears no resemblance to its neon-accented predecessor next door.

The wide-open chandelier lobby invites visitors into a lounge, sports bar and gaming rooms. Designers wanted to make it accessible to people looking to watch a game, buy a drink, or get dinner before seeing a show at the nearby Forum.

U.S. Judge upholds federal approval of Purple Line Extension project

Some very good news for Metro and the Purple Line Extension subway project arrived on Friday: in a federal lawsuit brought against the Federal Transit Administration, U.S. District Court Judge George Wu upheld the FTA’s prior approval of the project.

What that means in non-legalese: Metro can move forward with finalizing a $1.2-billion federal grant and $307-million federally-backed loan to help pay for the project’s second phase between Wilshire/La Cienega in Beverly Hills and Century City. If Judge Wu had decided to vacate the FTA’s approval, that money could have been delayed or, even worse, lost and the project would have been delayed.

Trimmed down tower on Sunset in Hollywood inches toward approval

The latest project from Hudson Pacific Properties is a 15-story office building on Sunset Boulevard at Bronson Avenue just west of the 101 freeway in Hollywood, and it’s moving to the City Council for final approval Wednesday after clearing the planning and land use committee this week.

The tower was proposed as 18 stories, but neighbors complained about the size, so Hudson chopped it to 15 by eliminating some parking. At that height, it would reach 240 feet. The building would go up on a 1.55-acre parking lot, abutting some two-story, Spanish-style bungalows, and it would have 26,000 square feet of retail on the ground level.

A rendering shows above-ground parking topped with offices. The office floors have varying heights and widths, a glassy facade and quite a bit of greenery.

I witnessed this this past Saturday. Good. For leisure sometimes on weekends I take Metro to places. Gold Line was packed, and on weekends it's usually light.

2024 Summer Olympics | Games of the XXXIII Olympiad - Candidate Cities
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...874381&page=53

Quote:



Can LA really win its Olympic bid?

Bill Hanway thinks so, and he’s in a position to know. As global head of sports at engineering firm AECOM, and before that with EDAW, Hanway has overseen plans for the games in London and Rio de Janeiro and is currently advising on the 2020 games in Tokyo. He’s also been deeply involved with LA’s bid for the 2024 games.

"I wouldn’t be committing two years of my life to this if I didn’t believe that LA has a very strong chance," he tells Curbed LA.

Part of the reason that Hanway and others are optimistic about LA’s chances is that the games have succeeded here before. The 1984 games, arguably the most successful ever, resulted in a surplus of $232.5 million—of which the city kept $93 million. Hanway says that leaders of LA’s 2024 bid are already analyzing ways to ensure future games would remain financially viable. "For us," he says, "the games are all about being financially responsible—creating a great games that takes advantage of the creativity and innovation that amasses in Southern California, and also bringing back some of the youthful enthusiasm to the games that only California can bring."

Another advantage for Los Angeles is that many of the facilities used in 1984 are still here. Plus, nearly every venue LA 2024 has proposed for use in the games exists today or is under construction. And while that means the games won’t result in a stunning cultural icon like Herzog and de Meuron’s Bird’s Nest stadium in Beijing, it also means LA wouldn't be stuck with any big and expensive venues that sit empty for most of the year.

"We have to show the world there’s a very, very responsible and responsive way to host the games without huge expenditures," Hanway says. "And the fact that we have all the venues in place can only be a fantastic asset to our bid.

Moreover, where other cities have used the Olympics as a means of improving infrastructure and mass transit projects, much of that work is already being undertaken in LA. "That infrastructure that is typically seen as part of Olympic games is already being done regardless of whether the games come to LA," Hanway points out.

Those improvements include a massive overhaul of LAX and the many transit projects planned, in progress, or recently completed. Hanway says these changes can only help to strengthen LA’s bid for the games. "Just the simple act of opening up the Metro from Downtown to Santa Monica Beach has transformed people’s perspectives of how to get to Santa Monica and the ease of doing so."

Marriott Edition Prepares to Climb on the Sunset Strip
$300-million development rising at Sunset Boulevard and Doheny Drive.

After months of site preparation, a tower crane is ready to take constructino vertical for a $300-million Marriott hotel on the Sunset Strip.

The Marriott Edition - which is being developed by a joint venture between Marriott International, the Witkoff Group and New Valley - will rise from a 1.37-acre site at Sunset Boulevard and Doheny Drive. With 148 guest rooms and 20 condominiums, the hotel is expected to become the West Coast flagship of the Edition brand.

Plans call for two mid-rise structures, designed by John Pawson and boutique hotel pioneer Ian Schrager. A boxy 13-story building will front Sunset Boulevard, while a nine-story structure will be located on the rear of the property along Harratt Street. Renderings portray the hotel with a series of cascading garden terraces.

Completion of the hotel is expected in the second half of 2018, at which point the Los Angeles Times reports it will command room rates between $400 and $500 per night.

LAFC Stadium to Break Ground on August 23

On August 23, Major League Soccer's Los Angeles Football Club (LAFC) will officially break ground on a $250-million stadium in Exposition Park.

The 22,000-seat venue, designed by the architecture firm Gensler, will anchor a larger development featuring a conference center, office space, a soccer museum and 10,000 square feet of restaurants. The soccer-specific stadium will be highlighted by a series of glass canopies, that provide weather shielding for spectators and frame views of the Downtown skyline.

The new stadium will rise from the current site of the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena, a dilapidated but historic structure that has played host to professional hockey, basketball, Olympic boxing, and even the Democratic National Convention. The 57-year-old arena, closed since March 2016, will be demolished.

Completion of the LAFC Stadium is expected in time for the 2018 MLS season. It may coincide with several other developments planned on the eastern side of Exposition park, including a proposed high-rise complex and the MyFigueroa streetscape improvement project.

Five Lagunas Breaks Ground at Former Mall

Last week, Merlone Geier Partners and the City of Laguna Hills broke ground on the new Five Lagunas Center on the site of the former Laguna Hills Mall. Situated adjacent to the 5 freeway, the project's name was inspired by its location in the midst of Laguna Hills, Laguna Beach, Laguna Nigel, Laguna Woods and Laguna Canyon.

Merlone Geier Partners imagines Five Lagunas as an urban village, providing a Downtown-like experience in a master-planned community. Much of the development focuses on reusing significant portions of the former mall, tearing out walls and roofs to create an outdoor experience, featuring approximately 60 retailers.

The project is also highlighted by three planned residential buildings, which will include a total of 350 multifamiliy dwelling units. This component of the project will be completed in phases, with opening dates to be announced in the future.

Other specialty features will include a 14-screen theater complex, a one-acre park with space for live music and events and a six-story parking garage.

Rams Stadium Builder Talking With Locals About Jobs

Turner Construction and joint venture partner AECOM have been selected to build the brand new 70,000-seat stadium for Los Angeles's new professional football team.

Project developer Hollywood Park Land Co. announced July 14 that it chose Turner/AECOM to lead construction and engineering management of the nearly $3 billion stadium where the National Football League's Rams will play.

The new Rams stadium is slated for completion in time for the team to begin its 2019 season on the new field.

Turner/AECOM was selected as the stadium's construction team partially because of their “commitment to provide substantial employment opportunities for local Inglewood residents,” Hollywood Park Land President Terry Fancher said in a statement.

Turner has “engaged with the local community and the local workforce to begin the process of getting people to understand the scope of the project, what the opportunities are, and how to eventually get those opportunities to work on the projects,” McFadden said.

Preliminary construction and demolition work has been ongoing at the stadium's Inglewood site for the past two years, and the next phase of construction is expected to begin in the coming months, McFadden said.

Disneyland's massive parking project

Disneyland Resort is planning a massive expansion project that would include creating a seven-story, 6,800-space parking structure, a new transportation hub, and a pedestrian bridge over Harbor Boulevard.

They are slated to be completed by the end of 2018.

Q. What’s going to happen to the Carousel Inn?

A. It will close sometime in October and eventually be razed. A spokesman for Wincome Group, which manages the property for Disney, said the hotel is relocating the 55 employees or helping them find a new job at a nearby hotel.

Q. How about the Pizza Press, which was also on the Carousel Inn property?

A. Disney’s lease with Pizza Press ends in April.

Q. Will visitors staying at nearby non-Disney hotels be forced to walk around to the Eastern Gateway transit facility on Manchester Avenue to get to the Disneyland Resort?

A. Guests staying in the hotels or motels on Harbor will be able to access the resort without going through the Eastern Gateway. The plans are still being developed but there will be another entrance with a security point for those entering on Harbor.

Q. Will nearby hotels or motels have backside access to the Eastern Gateway?

A. Disney has no plans to create an access point behind the hotels and motels on Harbor.

Q. Will people walking on Harbor have access to the pedestrian bridge linking the new transportation hub with the theme parks, similar to the bridges that connect some hotels in Las Vegas?

A. There will not be a direct access to the pedestrian connector or bridge from Harbor. However, vistitors can use a pedestrian pathway at Harbor and Disney Way directly to the Eastern Gateway.

Q. What will the pedestrian walkway and bridge over Harbor look like?

A. The bridge may be similar to the one visitors cross in Downtown Disney over Disneyland Drive. Visitors may not have noticed that they are using the well-disguised bridge, because planters and tall hedges hide the view of the street. There will be a limited amount of retail and food vendors along the pedestrian walkway.

Q. How far is the walk from the Eastern Gateway security checkpoint, on the east side of Harbor, where the theme parks’ new transportation hub will be, to the esplanade that leads to the theme parks’ main gates?

A. The walk is about a half-mile, or 10 minutes. There will be shuttles to take handicap visitors to a drop-off area near the esplanade.

Q. Will there be a new route for the Monorail? Is there a chance Disney California Adventure will expand into the area that now holds the transit hub?

A. It’s unclear if the route will change. And Disney says that the design for the main entryway, where the current transportation hub sits, is in progress.

Knott's Soak City expands to add two new water slides

Knott’s Soak City in Buena Park announced Wednesday the addition of two new water slide attractions, including a thrill ride that drops guests through a trapdoor from a tower more than seven stories tall.

The two new water slides — dubbed Shore Break and The Wedge — will replace a raft ride called Pacific Spin and an adjoining section of parking lot. The new attractions are part of a 1.8-acre expansion set to open next summer.
