More details emerge on the massive Port of Los Angeles redevelopment

Gensler’s Los Angeles office has revealed plans for a $150 million expansion to the Port of Los Angeles by marine science and business innovation group AltaSea. Revealed plans detail a 280,000-square-foot facility encompassing a new waterfront promenade, aquaculture research center, and science hub that combines the existing dockside warehouses with a new visitor’s center and signal-house.

Three formerly industrial warehouse shells with exposed composite steel beams and original overhead trusses will house dedicated research and business development facilities for aquaculture and underwater robotics endeavors. The project’s development will be divided into phases beginning with the redevelopment of Warehouses 58 through 60, which will add 180,000 square feet of combined research and business hubs to the site. This phase also incorporates an education pavilion and wharf plaza. The second and third phases entail renovating Warehouse 57—which will contain 60,000 square feet of laboratory and classroom space—and the construction of the site’s two new structures.

Theme parks bring in Hollywood producers and giant terror-filled mazes for Halloween

Halloween is growing so big, it’s scary.

To crank up the fright levels, Universal Studios Hollywood is employing directors and producers of creepy movies and television series to help create new attractions for this year’s Halloween celebration.

Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia has expanded its annual spookfest by an extra weekend and built its biggest outdoor maze ever, a 40,000-square-foot labyrinth haunted by post-apocalyptic killers.

And for the first time, Warner Bros. Studios has jumped into the competition for Halloween fans this year by launching a nighttime tour of the Burbank studio lot, plus a screening of two Warner Bros.-distributed horror films: “The Conjuring” and “The Conjuring 2.”

He compared the expansion of Halloween events at theme parks to the decision by fast-food giant McDonald’s in the 1970s to add breakfast to the chain’s meal offerings.

“It’s called capital intensity,” he said. “You increase by taking your investment and squeezing more money out of it.”

“The number just keeps growing on a level you can’t imagine,” he said.

At Universal Studios Hollywood, Eli Roth, the producer of such horror films as “Hostel,” “Cabin Fever” and “The Stranger,” has been recruited to remake the park’s iconic tram ride by populating it with maniacal, serial killer clowns.

Ryan Murphy, the creator of the “American Horror Story” television series, said he wanted to help build a maze haunted by evil spirits, scenes of gore and freak show actors because he always admired the Halloween attractions at Universal Studios Hollywood.

“For me, if your show is made into a theme park ride, you know you’ve made it,” Murphy said.

Knott’s Berry Farm in Buena Park, which launched its first Halloween event in the 1970s, is unveiling 13 spooky attractions, including a new maze that puts virtual reality goggles on guests to create bigger scares.

For Walt Disney Co.’s Anaheim parks, Halloween is more playful than frightful.

California added 63,000 jobs in August, 42% of U.S. total

California employers quieted any lingering doubts about the state’s economy in August, as an uptick in hiring helped absorb hordes of new job-seekers.

The state added a net 63,100 jobs last month and the unemployment rate remained at 5.5%, according to data released by the Employment Development Department on Friday.

Across the nation in August, employers added a net total of 151,000 new positions, meaning that California accounted for 42% of all U.S. job growth last month.

“These are astounding numbers,” said Michael Bernick, an attorney at Sedgwick, a San Francisco firm, who directed the EDD from 1999 to 2004. “Each time we think growth has to slow down, it just continues.”

Mixed-Use Campus Planned in the Arts District

Architecture firm Studio One Eleven has unveiled renderings for an upcoming develompent in the Downtown Los Angeles Arts District.

The proposed 2110 Bay development, slated for a 1.8-acre site adjacent to the forthcoming Soho Warehouse, would consist of three buildings on a campus-like setting with public and private open space. The project is being designed to gracefully incoprorate itself into the surrounding Arts District through sensitive massing, scaling and materials.

Plans call for a 110-unit live-work tower featuring a rooftop pool deck and amenity space. Next door, a proposed office building would create 100,000 square feet of leasable space as well as a rooftop amenity level. The third and final building would be a standalone retail shed structure, featuring a second-floor open air retreat.

In total, the 2110 Bay development would provide over 50,000 square feet or shops and restaurants, connected through a series of landscaped plazas and paseos. The entire site would be located above a three-level subterranean parking garage.

Officials preview Christ Cathedral design as Diocese of Orange marks 40 years

The sanctuary formerly known as Orange County’s Crystal Cathedral is on the brink of undergoing its makeover into the Christ Cathedral as part of its transformation into a Catholic church. And you can strap on virtual reality goggles to see its future.

“We do not have the time luxury of former cathedral builders. Our goal is to dedicate Christ Cathedral by 2019,” added Vann, who started his job after the purchase of the church and its 34-acre campus. A driving force behind the design, he has sought ideas from priests, lay people and experts.

Estimated costs for the cathedral are about $72 million, according to the Rev. Christopher Smith, rector and episcopal vicar of Christ Cathedral who is leading the design project.

“You begin with your dreams,” said Smith. “Our goal was to fashion a cathedral that is beautiful, maintains the architectural integrity of the original Philip Johnson building and can serve the community’s needs.”

Scott Johnson of Johnson/Fain Associates, principal architect, has crafted an interior layout intended to merge liturgical requirements with “transcendent beauty.” Virtual reality tours will be available to the public at this weekend’s celebration. The iconic building, lauded for its exterior shell of more than 12,000 panes of glass, will stay, officials said, but it is experiencing major repair and reconditioning. They hope the space will inspire contemplative and solemn prayer.

“This is the commission of a lifetime. This is a cathedral for the new millennium,” Johnson added. “We’re talking about a building that could last forever.”

New Details and an Updated Look for Crossroads Hollywood

A proposed high-rise hotel and condominium complex in Hollywood could be one of the first beneficiaries of a new California law intended to speed the construction of large developments.

Crossroads Hollywood, a $1-billion proposal from Harridge Development Group, has been submitted to the Governor's Office of Planning and Research as a potential "Environmental Leadership Development Project." This designation, limited to proposals budgeted at $100 million or more, requires the project to pay prevailing wages to construction workers and meet targets for renewable energy use and carbon emissions. In exchange, any lawsuits brought against the development under the California Environmental Quality Act would be be fast-tracked for resolution within nine months.

The project, designed by a team lead by Rios Clementi Hale Studios and Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM), is described as a "transit-oriented pedestrian-enhancing development," which incorporates the historic Crossroads of the World complex on Sunset Boulevard. Plans call for the demolition of several buildings on properties surrounding the former shipping center, followed by the construction of multiple high-rise and low-rise structures featuring 1.4 million square feet of condominiums, hotel rooms, shops and restaurants.

A full buildout of the eight-acre site would yield 950 residential units, a 308-room hotel, 95,000 square feet of office space and 185,000 square feet of shops and restaurants. A planned pedestrian paseo would link the nine mixed-use buildings, including a trio of high-rise towers.

Rams triumphant in long-awaited return to Los Angeles

Six days after a demoralizing loss to open their season, the Rams got the win they so badly needed -- the win this city has been waiting 22 years to experience -- on an emotional Sunday afternoon at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.

Led by a stout defense, an efficient quarterback and a flawless kicker, the Rams edged the vaunted division-rival Seattle Seahawks 9-3 in their highly anticipated home opener.

The Rams sold 91,046 tickets for their first game in the Coliseum since 1979. The Red Hot Chili Peppers performed a pregame concert, CeeLo Green sang the national anthem, LeBron James and Magic Johnson were in attendance and the Rams provided a performance worthy of all the pomp and circumstance. They limited the Seahawks -- the team many have picked to win the Super Bowl this season -- to 305 yards from scrimmage and one field goal, for their third straight victory against Seattle.

Luxe Hotel Redevelopment Takes Another Step Forward

A new environmental report offers up additional details on Shenzhen Hazens Real Estate Group's proposed redevelopment of the Luxe Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles.

The L-shaped property at 1020 S. Figueroa Street, currently developed with a mid-rise hotel and associated parking lot, is located directly across the street from Staples Center and the L.A. Live complex. Under plans from the Chinese developer, the existing structures would be demolished for a trio of high-rise towers featuring hotel rooms and condominiums above approximately 80,000 square feet of commercial space.

The $700-million project, designed by the global architecture firm Gensler, is expected to move forward in two phases. City records indicate that the developer plans to first build upon a surface parking lot at the south end of the property.

A 34-story, 430-foot tall building at Figueroa and 11th Streets would house the proposed W Hotel and its 300 guest rooms. Hotel amenities would be situated at the building's podium and roof levels, including a swimming pool, a spa and an outdoor garden.

Immediately west at the corner of 11th and Flower Street, plans call for the construction of a 32-story, 490-foot building which would house 290 condominiums. The proposed tower would provide a variety of floor plans, including lofts, studios, penthouses, as well as one-, two- and three-bedroom units. As with the hotel tower, guest amenities such as a pool area, a fitness center and lounges would be situated atop the building's roof and on the podium level.

Following the completion of these two buildings, Hazens would begin demolishing the existing Luxe Hotel to build an additional condominium tower. The proposed 38-story building, rising to a maximum height of 540 feet, would offer 360 dwelling units with a similar mixture of floor plans to its phase one counterpart. Plans also call for 14 live-work units on levels three and four of the building, as well as rooftop and podium-level amenity decks.

The podium structure, spanning across the entirety of the site, would stand 75 feet in height and offer commercial space on its first two floors, and amenities for residents and hotel guests on floors three and four. Parking would be located on four below-grade levels.

Two More Towers for Koreatown

Local real estate firm Jamison Services is continuing its multifamily residential building spree, with yet another mixed-use development planned in Koreatown.

Yesterday, the company filed plans with the City of Los Angeles to construct two high-rise buildings adjacent to the Wilshire Financial Tower, an early 1960s office complex at 3600 Wilshire Boulevard. The proposed development would start with the demolition of the building's parking garage, followed by the construction of two 23-story towers featuring a combined 760 dwelling units above roughly 6,400 square feet of street-level commercial space.

The proposal would require the rezoning of the 7th Street side of the property, which is currently limited to use as a parking structure.

A 'crown jewel' of the L.A. River project could cost $252 million

A plan for turning a former rail yard next to the Los Angeles River into park space, wetlands and other amenities could cost more than $252 million, city analysts said in a report Thursday.

The City Council voted in May to allocate $40 million for the purchase of the vacant site, which is owned by railroad company Union Pacific and referred to as Parcel G2. But the overall project, including the removal of contaminated soil, could reach six times that amount, according to the 91-page report.

Mayor Eric Garcetti has championed the G2 project for years, describing the property as a “crown jewel” of a larger, 11-mile river restoration initiative. He and the council must decide over the next few weeks whether to move ahead with a purchase of the site, which sits on the north side of the river next to Rio De Los Angeles State Park.

Asked about the estimates, Garcetti said through an aide that he remains committed to the purchase of the property. The G2 site will create “41 acres of much-needed green space in the heart of L.A.,” said his spokeswoman, Connie Llanos.

The new video comes from the Metro Gold Line Foothill Extension Construction Authority, the agency charged with planning and building the rail extension between Azusa and Montclair. The line, as planned, includes stations in Glendora, San Dimas, La Verne, Pomona, Claremont and Montclair and is envisioned as a good transit alternative to the chronically constipated 210 freeway.

Revised L.A. Olympic bid adds Riviera and shifts events to Long Beach

From the moment they launched a campaign to bring the Olympics back to Los Angeles, LA 2024 leaders insisted they had at least one significant advantage.

Plenty of venues to choose from.

The private bid committee has now called upon that largesse to tweak their initial blueprint, adding Riviera Country Club to a list of iconic sites that already included the Coliseum, Staples Center and Pauley Pavilion.

“Obviously Riviera is a world-class course,” said Casey Wasserman, the group’s chairman. “We feel it’s the right answer for our city and the right answer for our bid.”

In an announcement on Thursday, LA 2024 proposed additional changes.

Volleyball would be shifted from UCLA to the Honda Center and a new venue cluster would be created in Long Beach. Bid leaders reiterated their intention to use the planned NFL stadium in Inglewood and raised the possibility of rowing in Riverside County.

LA 2024 and U.S. Olympic leaders come to terms on marketing agreement

As part of its bid for the 2024 Summer Games, LA 2024 has agreed to terms with the U.S. Olympic Committee on a marketing arrangement that is required but has often been controversial.

The Joint Marketing Program Agreement outlines shared responsibilities — and shared income — between the host city and the USOC if Los Angeles is selected.

Negotiations were finalized at a national Olympic assembly in Colorado this week.

“We didn’t want it to become an issue,” USOC Chairman Larry Probst said Friday. “So we just made the decision that sooner was better than later.”

Architects’ proposed design for Arts District skyscrapers would transform neighborhood

To paraphrase Ronald Reagan by way of Basel, Switzerland, it’s morning again in the Arts District.

At least that’s the upbeat sales pitch suggested by the name of a massive mixed-use development proposed for downtown L.A.’s booming Arts District by the Swiss architects Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron.

Called 6AM — for its location along 6th Street between Alameda and Mill streets — the project includes 1.96 million square feet of residential space as well as shops, offices, a pair of hotels, room for a charter school and parking, most of it underground, for more than 3,400 cars.

Produced with the Irvine-based developer SunCal and covering 14.5 acres, the complex would be crowned with a pair of 58-story towers along Alameda. Each topping 700 feet, these would be the first skyscrapers in the largely low-rise Arts District.

Light rail extension to West Hollywood might happen much sooner than planned

The vote on Measure M—a ballot measure that will ask voters to increase the countywide sales tax to fund public transit projects—is just over a month away. A big change is being made that could draw more support from voters in West Hollywood.

According to WEHOville, Metro is moving up its timeline for a possible extension of the forthcoming Crenshaw Line north to the Red Line in Hollywood, a project that would be funded in part with revenue from Measure M, if it passes. The transit agency is now aiming to start construction as early as 2020, much earlier than the pervious plan to start somewhere between 2041 and 2047.

This is great news for West Hollywood. The city has been lobbying Metro hard to get a rail route through its city, one that ideally includes a full swing down Santa Monica Boulevard. It has even brought consultants Fehr & Peers on board to help build its case.

Bullet train route across Big Tujunga Wash meets growing opposition

The Big Tujunga Wash, among Southern California’s most powerful and least developed rivers, is at ground zero of a growing political battle over the route the California bullet train would take as it enters the Los Angeles basin.

The wash carries more than 5 billion gallons per year along a section that has endangered species, protected habitat, parks and equestrian trails. In big winter storms, giant boulders roll down the river bed, attracting spectators to its banks.

It is here — at the junction of Shadow Hills, Lake View Terrace and other small enclaves of the northeast San Fernando Valley — that the California High Speed Rail Authority may build a quarter-mile-long elevated viaduct, allowing trains to exit a long tunnel through the San Gabriel Mountains as they head toward a future station in Burbank.

But the plan is attracting growing scrutiny by government boards and local citizen groups, who are urging the state to eliminate the route from consideration and instead continue developing an alternative plan that would have the trains approach Burbank in a continuous long tunnel.
