What’s next for West LA’s big new development Martin Expo Town Center?

A big Westside project, the Martin Expo Town Center, won unanimous approval from the Los Angeles City Council last week, a decision that will usher in new retail, residential, and a 10-story office tower on the site of a car dealership at the northwest corner of Olympic Boulevard and Bundy Drive.

The project has been tweaked and trimmed since we last saw it at the beginning of the year. The most notable reductions are on the retail and office front. Office space was shaved down from 200,000 square feet down to 150,000, and the grocery store, once 50,000 square feet, has been slimmed down to 35,000 square feet. (The project also includes 18,000 square feet of restaurant space and 46,000 square feet for general retail use.)

The town center has also gained a few significant add-ons, namely an affordable housing component that will set aside 20 percent of the project’s 516 apartments for less-than-market rate rents. (Fifteen percent will be "workforce housing," where occupants median income can't exceed 150 percent of the area median income, and five percent will be for very low-income tenants.)

New $148-million connector at LAX improves passenger access between domestic and international terminals

For years, making many flight connections at Los Angeles International Airport has required a walk outside the terminal or a shuttle bus ride, as well as re-screening at a security checkpoint.

LAX officials say a new $148.5-million passenger facility that opened Thursday will end those inconveniences for many passengers.

The new Terminal 4 connector allows travelers to move between the recently expanded Tom Bradley International Terminal on the west side of the airport and the five terminals on the airport’s south-facing side, which is home to dozens of airlines including United, American, Delta and Alaska. About 52.3 million passengers — 70% of the airport’s total — passed through those terminals last year, officials said.

Travelers can now cross between these terminals without going outside or leaving secure areas — although anyone flying into the Bradley terminal will still be required to go through customs and immigration.

Claremont McKenna College unveils new sports, fitness, events center

Claremont McKenna College opened the doors to its new fitness and events pavilion Friday.

Dubbed the Roberts Pavilion Events Center, it is named after alumnus George R. Roberts, who graduated in 1966 and currently serves as a trustee at the college. He is founder and co-CEO of Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co., a private equity firm.

Among other features, the new pavilion houses a three-story, 10,000-square-foot fitness studio with more than 60 treadmills, cross-trainers, exercise bikes, climbers, rowers, weight machines and other cardio equipment, according to a news release. The facility also offers a 4,500-square-foot strength training room as well as exercise rooms for yoga, aerobics, spin, dance and other group classes.

Hawthorne-based SpaceX pushes technology boundaries to new limits

Quote:



Elon Musk's Mars plan involves giant reusable rockets, spaceships flying 100 people

SpaceX Chief Executive Elon Musk envisions a fleet of 1,000 spaceships embarking en masse for Mars, establishing a self-sustaining colony of as many as 1 million people and turning humans into a multiplanetary species within 40 to 100 years.

“There are really two fundamental paths,” Musk said. “One path is we stay on Earth forever and there will be some eventual extinction event. The other is to become a ... multiplanet species, which I hope you will agree is the way to go."

SpaceX has defied the odds before. It jump-started the private space industry, challenging traditional aerospace companies that held a monopoly on launching national security satellites. The company has successfully launched its Falcon 9 rocket 27 times and made history when it landed used, first-stage boosters back on land and sea six times.

The company already has completed development work on a massive, carbon-fiber fuel tank for the Mars ship, and it has test fired the Raptor interplanetary transport engine.

Rendering vs. Reality: Lennar's Olympic & Olive Development

The project, designed by KTGY Group, consists of a six-story building at the southwest corner of Olympic and Olive Streets. When completed in 2017, the podium-style structure will offer 201 apartments and 4,000 square feet of retail space, seated above underground parking for 228 vehicles and 221 bicycles.

Olympic & Olive represents one of the final components of a recent building boom along South Park's Olympic Corridor, adding to projects from the Hanover Company and Geoff Palmer. Farther down the line, high-rise developments at Hill Street and Broadway could continue this momentum.

Disney gives a glimpse of its upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy attraction

Disney on Monday released new images of the proposed attraction, hoping pictures of a scale model of the new ride, dubbed “Guardians of the Galaxy — Mission: Breakout,” will win over fans.

“It really has a lot different design elements that all come together and create what’s really a very striking building,” John Mauro, executive director of Walt Disney Imagineering, said in a video released Monday. “It’s going to look like a brand new attraction.”

LA looks pretty urban in its first-ever film appearance

Dorothy Parker famously said (though she probably didn’t) that LA is "72 of suburbs in search of a city." It’s a common criticism of this sprawling metropolis, but a 25-second film from 1897 tells a different story.

As KCET notes, the short movie was the first ever made in what would soon become the center of film production worldwide. It shows a city with a bustling downtown, full of walkers, bicyclists, horse-drawn carriages, and trolleys. All easily share the street and sidewalks in a chaotic but practiced type of choreography.

Lake Perris aims to be Olympic venue for Los Angeles in 2024

Promoters of Los Angeles’ bid to host the 2024 Olympics have reached an agreement with the California Department of Parks and Recreation, which oversees the Lake Perris State Recreation Area near Perris and Moreno Valley.

Jeff Millman, a spokesman for the LA 2024 Exploratory Committee, said the group has selected the reservoir as its “proposed site” for those events.

If Olympic events are held at the lake, it wouldn’t be the Games’ first appearance in the Inland area. In the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics, shooting events took place at the 44-acre Prado Olympic Shooting Park in Chino.

Crane Watch: Yucca Street and Argyle Avenue

A new tower crane has been raised high near the Capitol Records Building, heralding the latest change to Hollywood's once low-slung skyline.

Related California, the Irvine-based firm best known for the Grand Avenue Project, has started vertical construction for an 18-story apartment tower at the southwest corner of Yucca Street and Argyle Avenue. The project, which is targeting a completion date in 2018, will offer 114 one-, two- and three-bedroom dwellings above 2,100 square feet of ground-floor commercial space. Plans also call for a pool deck, a fitness center and a 201-car garage.

USC celebrates the opening of a $46-million building for dance

Several hundred USC dance faculty and students, university trustees, professional dancers and choreographers gathered Wednesday afternoon to celebrate the opening of the $46-million Glorya Kaufman International Dance Center, the university’s first on-campus building dedicated to dance study.

Kaufman made her gift, the amount of which the university declined to reveal, in 2012. Groundbreaking took place in 2014. The dance school welcomed its first class in fall 2015, with 33 students collaborating with dance professionals while studying styles including ballet, ballroom and hip-hop. Classes were held in a temporary facility on campus, then moved into the new 54,000-square-foot building in August.

The two-story center, with its arched windows and thin red brick exterior, was designed by Pfeiffer Partners Architects. It includes dance studios and a performance space along with a “dance wellness center,” a training and fitness space, dressing rooms, classrooms and faculty offices.

How LA’s Olympic Bid could steer the games in a new direction

At a presentation to members of the Los Angeles Economic Development Corporation Wednesday, AECOM’s Global Sports Leader, Bill Hanway, explained that an Olympic games in LA runs little risk of encountering the kinds of problems that have plagued games in the past. In fact, LA’s bid is dependent on showing the International Olympic Committee that the city can set an example of a responsible and sustainable games that the rest of the world will be able to follow.

"LA’s benefit is that it sort of resets the argument," Hanway says. "You start by taking advantage of your assets and then working from there."

And that’s what makes LA’s bid so unique: the city isn’t trying to be Barcelona. Instead of trying to harness the Olympics as a force for massive urban overhaul, the privately funded bid committee is focusing on ways to make the Olympics work in the city that exists today.

It might not be enough to beat out Paris, but it has the potential to change the way cities approach hosting responsibilities in the future.

Here’s the rendering for eye-popping skyscraper planned at Pershing Square

Developer Jeffrey Fish released this morning a rendering for the crazy skyscraper he wants to build at Pershing Square, right next to the building that houses popular rooftop bar and restaurant Perch.

As the rendering shows, glass lap pools would jut out from the top half of it, so brave swimmers could splash around while looking straight down and out over LA’s skyline. Among the views they might take in: a made-over Pershing Square. Theses types of floating pools are called cantilevered pools, and they have been built in homes and hotels in other cities for years, but would be making their first appearance here in Los Angeles if Fish’s project goes forward.

The suspended pools would hang from condos. Fish’s plan is to either fill the 5th and Hill streets skyscraper, which would rise 55 to 57 stories, with either 100 condos and 200 hotel rooms and 27,500 square feet of commercial space or just 142 condos and slightly less commercial space.

The rendering also gives us a better look at the "sky lobby," an open, communal deck area (with a traditional, non-death-defying pool) that would be level with the top of the building next-door. Floors of condos would rise from stilts above the deck. It looks like some of the condos will be offset. That, along with the dangling pools, give the building, as Urbanize LA has noted, too, a kind of Jenga-look.

Warner Music Group will relcoate from boring Burbank to ‘exciting’ Arts District

Is the Arts District is going corporate? Billboard reports today that Warner Music Group—whose labels include labels Warner Bros. Records, Atlantic, and Rhino—is relocating its West Coast headquarters from Burbank to the so-trendy-that-rents-are-too-high-for-artists Downtown neighborhood.

Billboard obtained an internal memo from CEO Stephen Cooper announcing the move into the old Ford factory, set to take place in early 2018. In the message, Cooper tells employees he, "wanted an exciting space that enables us to preserve our unique company cultures."

The factory building at 7th Street and Santa Fe most recently housed a creepy army of American Apparel mannequins, but it is being converted to hold about 254,000 square feet of creative offices, plus retail space. Owner Shorenstein Properties has said it wants "cool retail" on the ground-floor, not chain stores.

Long Beach Airport could get an international terminal

A long-awaited study on the feasibility of allowing international flights in and out of Long Beach Airport concluded that such flights would not exceed local noise restrictions and would generate millions of dollars in spending by international travelers.

The study by Jacobs Engineering, released this week, found that new international flights could replace existing domestic flights without exceeding current noise limits. But to screen international passengers and luggage, the airport must build a federal inspection facility at a cost of $17.3 million to $21.6 million, the report said.

As a benefit, international travelers flying to Long Beach could spend $57 million to $104 million in the first five years after international flights begin service, the report said. The new international screening facility could also generate 350 new jobs.

South Park High-Rise Quietly Revived

Fulton Street Ventures, the American subsidiary of Chinese real estate firm R&F Properties, held a groundbreaking ceremony this weekend for a long-delayed high-rise development in Downtown Los Angeles. The small gathering was first spotted by Downtown-based entrepreneur Andy Rosillo.

The project, 1133 S. Hope Street, is a proposed 28-story residential tower located east of Staples Center and the L.A. Live entertainment district. Plans call for an approximately 330-foot building would contain roughly 200 condominiums, 5,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space, a parking garage and residential amenities.

Renderings portray a contemporary glass tower, featuring outdoor decks above its podium and rooftop, as well as a green wall masking above-grade parking levels along Hope Street and towards the adjacent Flower Street Lofts. The project is being designed by the Vancouver-based Chris Dikeakos Architects.
