Miracle Mile Office Building Slated for Spring Groundbreaking

After two years of silence, the Park La Brea News has reported that developer J.H. Snyder will break ground next Spring on a new office building along the Miracle Mile.

The $170-million development, located adjacent to SAF-AFTRA plaza on Wilshire Boulevard, will create a 12-story structure featuring 250,000 square feet of office space, as well as 2,100 parking spaces in an expansion of an existing garage. Renderings of the project, designed by the Jerde Partnership, portray a mid-rise tower clad with angular glass panels.

Construction of the office complex, which is dubbed the Wilshire Curson Building, would occur over approximately two years.

The property overlooks the sprawling LACMA campus, which is poised for a $600-million makeover designed by Peter Zumthor.

A new promotional video offers a flythrough tour of One Beverly Hills, a planned $1.2-billion development by the Dalian Wanda Group.

The project, which is being developed in partnership with the Athens Group, would consist of two mid-rise structures between Wilshire and Santa Monica Boulevards, featuring 193 luxury condominiums, 134 hotel rooms and multiple restaurants. Plans also call for multiple roof terraces, meeting rooms, event space, green space and parking for 1,140 vehicles.

The 13- and 15-story buildins are being designed by Richard Meier & Partners Architects, with landscape work by the Philadelphia-based firm OLIN.

Construction of the mixed-use development is scheduled to occur over approximately 36 months.

Approximately $6 billion in investment is coming to Anaheim, by way of expansions to the city's major theme parks and new commercial developments surrounding Angel Stadium.

Besides the addition of the much-vaunted Star Was land at Disneyland Park, planned developments include four luxury hotels, an expansion of the Anaheim Convention Center, new homes, offices, hotels and retail destinations in the Platinum Triangle district.

This past July, Anaheim granted approval to a trio of hotels in the city's Resort District.

The other significant investments in the Resort District include:

The $1.92-billion Star Wars-themed expansion of Disneyland
A $1.5-billion parking structure, transit hub and pedestrian bridge being built within the park.
A $190-million expansion of the Anaheim Convention Center, adding 200,000 square feet of flexible meeting space adjacent along Katella Avenue.
Major developments are also underway in Anaheim's Platinum Triangle, a 820-acre district which contains Angel Stadium, Honda center and the ARTIC transit hub.

Construction is currently underway on A-Town Metro, which offers a mixture of for-sale and rental housing, as well as stores, restaurants and park space. A neighborhing property known as Jefferson Stadium Park is slated for 1,000 apartments and approximately 10,000 square feet of retail space direclty across from the stadium.

LT Platinum Center, which is also planned adjacent Angel Stadium, would create an additional 442,000 square feet of retail space, 77,000 square feet of offices, 340 condominiums and a 200-key hotel.

Lakers and UCLA Health Announce Naming Rights Partnership For New Lakers Training Facility

The Los Angeles Lakers and UCLA Health have agreed to a long-term partnership that includes UCLA Health’s designation as the exclusive in-game health providers for the team’s players and the naming rights for the team’s new training facility and offices in El Segundo, it was announced today. The name of the facility will be the UCLA Health Training Center.

Construction of the facility, located at 2275 E. Mariposa Avenue, began on September 18, 2015 and is expected to be completed by the summer of 2017. The Lakers and UCLA Health also will be engaged in community, educational and research efforts in injury prevention and sports performance for the Lakers.

“We’re extremely pleased and excited about our new partnership with UCLA Health,” said Lakers President/Governor and co-owner Jeanie Buss. “Their innovative, forward-thinking, research-oriented medical team and facilities are unsurpassed, and their focus on not only treating, but preventing, injuries will translate into the ultimate goal of helping our players perform better on-court and to prolonging their professional careers. In addition, UCLA Health’s community relations and community commitment views and philosophies are so closely aligned to those of the Lakers that they make us perfect partners to further those goals and programs.”

Dr. John Mazziotta, M.D., Ph.D, Vice Chancellor of UCLA Health Sciences and CEO of UCLA Health, said the partnership with the Lakers will provide both organizations with an unparalleled ability to share the message of health and fitness with a broad and diverse audience. “UCLA Health is committed to improving the health of our community, both for individuals and population-wide,” he said.

The partnership is aligned with both organizations’ existing work within the community.

Six Flags Magic Mountain takes on Disney and Universal with Justice League ride

Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia will add an interactive dark ride in 2017, the first in its 45-year history and one designed to compete with Southern California rivals Disney and Universal.

The Justice League: Battle for Metropolis 3-D dark ride, designed by Florida-based Sally Corp., will be themed to the crime-fighting team of DC Comics superheroes.

Six Flags parks are renowned for their towering steel coasters, not indoor dark rides. Magic Mountain has staked its reputation on rides built for speed and thrills, but it has left the slower-paced dark rides, based on storytelling elements and special effects, to Disneyland and Universal Studios Hollywood.

The Justice League dark ride will feature motion-platform vehicles, animatronic figures, special effects and laser-gun game play inside a 23,000-square-foot building.

LA's Next Massive Food Hall Lands in the Center of Beverly Grove

Beverly Boulevard is about to get a gigantic new injection of restaurants, thanks a huge incoming food hall slated to open late next year. Dubbed Edin Park, the planned project will span two stories (plus a rooftop) and 31 individual concepts.

Right now it’s very early going for the Edin Park name, which is landing at the corner of Edinburgh and Beverly, right next to Market Provisions. In total the building will cover 50,000 square feet, with almost three dozen individual restaurant mini-concepts taking on small spaces in the 300 to 500 square foot range, plus a nearly 1,500 square foot communal area for diners. There will also be a parking garage capable of holding a few hundred cars at a time.

Hotel development is booming in California

California, like the rest of the country, is in the midst of a hotel building boom, with more than 17,000 rooms under construction and an additional 84,000 in the pipeline.

The surge in development follows a years-long drought in new hotels.

Los Angeles County dominates in the number of rooms under construction, with 6,772 in 37 hotels, according to a report released by Orange County-based Atlas Hospitality Group, which tracks the hotel real estate sector.

The renewed interest in hotel development comes when industry revenue and room rates have begun eclipsing pre-recession highs and occupancies are on the upswing.

Wilshire Grand Tower in downtown L.A. becomes tallest building west of Mississippi River

A 10-ton spire was placed atop the Wilshire Grand Tower in downtown Los Angeles this morning, officially making it the tallest building west of the Mississippi River.

Construction workers and onlookers watched from below as a crane slowly lifted the final section of spire into place at about 7 a.m. atop the 73-story tower on the corner of Wilshire Boulevard and Figueroa Street.

The $1 billion hotel/office complex, being developed by Korean Air, is about 85 percent finished. Scheduled to be completed next year, it is 1,099 feet high with the spire included, taller than the nearby U.S. Bank Tower, which tops out at 1,018 feet and had been the tallest building west of the Mississippi since it opened in 1989.

“The Wilshire Grand is an important part of the economic resurgence that is transforming L.A.’s skyline and has created 122,000 new jobs across our city,” Mayor Eric Garcetti said. “I congratulate the project team on reaching this milestone, and look forward to seeing the tallest building west of the Mississippi open its doors next year.”

“The Wilshire Grand is not only the tallest building in the West, it's an entertainment destination that will represent the very best of what downtown Los Angeles has to offer,” said City Councilman Jose Huizar, who represents the downtown area.

Hollywood Office Tower Gets Haircut, Gets Approval

Earlier this week, the Los Angeles City Council voted unanimously to approve Hudson Pacific Properties' (HPP) planned office tower on Sunset Boulevard.

The proposed development, slated for a parking lot catacorner to Sunset Bronson Studios (SBS), would consist of a 15-story building which would feature 274,000 square feet of commercial office space over 26,000 square feet of ground-level shops and restaurants. Earlier plans had called for a slightly taller 18-story structure with additional levels of above-grade parking.

The tower, designed by the global architecture firm Gensler, would feature a cascading series of terrace levels which face the residential district to the north of the property. Planned exterior materials include concrete, wood and metal panels.

Construction of the tower could begin in early 2017.

New $300 million Portola High School opens in Irvine to 400 freshmen

Welcomed by the giant drawing of a bulldog mascot that faces a parking lot and the smell of pristine classrooms, students, teachers and staff kicked off the historic first day of Portola High School.

There wasn’t much celebration Wednesday morning, except for some parents taking photos of their children at entrances to the new campus. Still, there wasn’t a lack of excitement among the 400 students, all of whom are freshmen.

“I’m just so thrilled that we started this brand new school,” said Laurel Feldner, 14, who came from Jeffrey Trail Middle School. “All of the teachers seemed so excited to be here. I know that I’m super excited to be here, and they just all seemed very ready to teach us.”

The opening of Portola High, the Irvine Unified School District’s fifth comprehensive high school, is a reflection of what’s happening in Irvine, one of the fastest-growing cities in California.

Adjacent to the northeast side of the Orange County Great Park, the school serves students from the developing Great Park Neighborhoods and other parts of north Irvine.

The student center features movable chairs and sofas and a library with dedicated quiet rooms, giving it the look and feel of a college or a Silicon Valley office. District officials looked at such universities as Stanford and UC Irvine to install design and innovation labs where students can work on projects, Walker said.

Teachers are encouraged to work together at their commons space.

The campus is nearly complete. Innovation and design labs are going through finishing touches and a 720-seat theater is expected to be completed in December, district officials said.

Construction of the campus cost $157 million, which was paid through the community facilities district, according to Irvine Unified. The land, worth $143 million, was provided by the area developer, FivePoint Communities.

SAN BERNARDINO: Airport could become drone research hub

San Bernardino International Airport could become ground zero for commercial drone research and technology.

The airport is partnering with Tesla Foundation Group, not connected to Elon Musk’s Tesla Motors, but a leader in the field of drone use and technology.

“The (drone) industry is evolving and we are trying to evolve with it,” said Mark Gibbs, director of aviation at SBIA.

Airport officials and the Tesla Foundation Group have been working to find other partners, resources and systems to support the National Commercial Drone Research Center, the “think tank and research and development center,” Gibbs said, which could open next year.

Cracking the code: Kevin Demoff helps Rams find their way back to L.A.

As the football world would learn decades later, Demoff is unruffled by the big stage. The Rams’ top executive, whose childhood was steeped in pro football, was an integral figure in untangling the most confounding knot in professional sports. Demoff, 39, was key in bringing the NFL back to Los Angeles for the first time in 22 years.

It was Rams owner Stan Kroenke who had the resources and vision for a transformational stadium project at Hollywood Park, but Demoff was the point guard when it came to selling that Inglewood concept to the rest of the league.

“I’m fortunate to have the tutelage of Stan, who has really pioneered how you combine resources and sports in a way that has never been done before,” said Demoff, the Rams’ executive vice president of football operations and chief operating officer. “I’m grateful for his mentorship. He pushes our team for greatness and challenges us to envision the impossible.”

In January, what once was impossible became a reality. By a 30-2 vote, NFL owners chose the Inglewood project over a competing plan in Carson jointly backed by the San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders.

“In my 45 years in the movie business, I’ve heard some very exciting pitches for movies,” said Steve Tisch, co-owner of the New York Giants and an Oscar-winning film producer. “Kevin’s pitch for the Rams’ new stadium at Hollywood Park was just as powerful. He was passionate, informative, prepared and dynamic. … It was like watching a great trailer for a movie.”
