Finally: Construction Kicks off for MyFigueroa in October

Last week, the Los Angeles Department of Transportation announced that construction will start in October for the long-awaited makeover of the Figueroa Corridor. The $20-million project will provide a variety of streetscape improvements between Downtown Los Angeles and Exposition Park, including protected bike lanes, new bus platforms and landscaping.

Segments of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and 11th Street will also see upgrades under the plan.

Completion of the project is expected in 2017, at which point it will coincide with similar improvements slated for 7th Street.

Fanciful power plants envisioned off the Santa Monica Pier

If we told you a power plant was being built off the coast of Santa Monica, mere yards from the Santa Monica Pier, you'd think Santa Monica leaders had lost their minds. But what if that power plant was also designed as a public art piece?

That’s the goal of the 2016 Land Art Generator Initiative, says the Santa Monica Lookout. The competition not only puts a focus on creating new forms of sustainable energy, it also challenges designers to add some artistry to the normally drab and foreboding appearance of power plants.

Updated W Hotel Los Angeles Proposal Features Massive Wrap-Around LED Screen

Quote:
An updated set of renderings for the proposed W Hotel Los Angeles development reveal the addition of what a massive wrap-around LED screen that will envelop the lower perimeter of all three towers central to the Gensler-designed project. Brought forward earlier this week by Chinese developer Shenzen Hazens, the latest addition will most certainly bring a flashier, more international element to the project, as the architectural video screen treatment has long been a staple in Asian metropolises, with an increasing presence beginning to take root in North America and elsewhere.

With a new e-sports arena, UC Irvine aims to become a mecca for gamers

The new team at UC Irvine is suiting up for battle in a recently furnished arena on campus, where members will gear up with headphones, a keyboard and mouse.

UC Irvine this month opened its e-sports arena, which is equipped with 80 computers and will be frequented by the school's new team competing in the "League of Legends" game.

E-sports, or electronic sports, are multiplayer video game experiences and competitions in which players play against one another through a digital platform.

LA 2024 Extol Successful Test Event Almost 8 Years Before Any Possible Olympics Opening Ceremony

Los Angeles’ Bid for the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games Thursday celebrated the success of what organizers called an “Olympic Village Dress Rehearsal”. The bid last week helped facilitate the move-in of 12,800 University of California students into their UCLA accommodations, a process they say closely emulates that of the Olympic Village.

Should L.A. win its bid to host the Games in 2024 the UCLA campus will accommodate the athletes and officials in a location that is considered central in the overall Games plan and will provide easy access to four planned sports parks. 16,000 students are scheduled to reside in the facilities during the 2016/2017 school term.

In a statement LA 2024 explained “UCLA’s residential village offers fully accessible, modern housing, complete with beautiful reception and hosting centers; world-class medical facilities and expansive athletic facilities within walking distance from all residences; and a professional staff, security and operational structure that serves thousands of guests every year.”

Riverside's downtown to allow more high-rises

Riverside will “lift the lid” on downtown development, allowing buildings taller than the current cap of 140 feet in some areas.

Changes to the zoning code, which the City Council approved Tuesday, Sept. 27, remove height limits in the downtown core and instead base maximum building heights on several factors including the size of the lot, square footage of the building and amenities such as a landscaped courtyard or rooftop dining area.

Dubbed the “lift the lid” initiative, the move is expected to attract new offices and housing downtown while keeping the city skyline from being one dull, uniform height.

'A very, very hot market': Downtown L.A. high-rise sells for $50 million as residential building boom

A prominent Bunker Hill high-rise has changed hands for a premium price topping $50 million, signaling that downtown Los Angeles’ residential renaissance is boosting the area’s long-soft commercial office market.

A Los Angeles investment group purchased the 15-story Chase Plaza at 888 W. 6th St. from a partnership that included the Somerset Group, a New York City real estate firm. The deal closed Thursday.

Phillip Sample, a real estate broker with CBRE Group who represented the seller and buyer, said the building sold for around $540 per square foot, a price that he estimated was the highest for a downtown office building in at least 10 years.

“Downtown is a very, very hot market,” said Sample, who noted that investors want to be in the city center as millennials move downtown and the region’s public transportation network expands.
