All these glass facade skyscrapers seem quite uneconomic and ecologically questionable in LA's climate (or pretty much any other). Guess energy's still too cheap.

Greenland USA Tops off Second Metropolis Condo Tower

Last Friday, Greenland USA officially topped-off the second residential tower at Metropolis in Downtown Los Angeles. The 40-story building, which is on pace for completion in 2018, will feature 514 condominiums and pedestrian-oriented retail space near the intersection of 8th and Francisco Streets.

Designed by architecture firm Harley Ellis Devereaux, the 461-foot tower will feature a combination of studio, one- and two-bedroom floor plans, some of which will include private balconies and terraces. The tower will also entail a full array of residential amenities, including a gym, an outdoor swimming pool and a 1.5-acre outdoor area known as Met 9.

The $1-billion Metropolis development encompasses a 6.3-acre site near the Harbor Freeway. A full buildout of the project for 1,250 residential units, ground-level commercial space and a 350-key Hotel Indigo in four towers ranging from 18-to-56 stories in height. The first of the three condominium towers, an adjacent 38-story structure, has reportedly pre-sold more than 70% of its 308 units. Prices for both buildings range from $600,000 to more than $2 million.

LA 2024 relocates Summer Olympics press center to USC in latest bid documents

LA 2024 officials have once again made adjustments to their proposal for the 2024 Summer Olympics, moving half of a large and potentially expensive media center to the USC campus.

The change was included in a second round of paperwork due for submission to the International Olympic Committee on Friday.

The “Candidature File Part 2” specified that proposed broadcast facilities would remain on NBC Universal’s studio lot — as part of an originally announced partnership — but the main press center would now be shifted to USC’s Annenberg Hall and Ronald Tutor Campus Center.

First Look at 2222 Figueroa
Mixed-use complex to sit between MyFigueroa and Expo Line.

Four years after the completion of the Expo Line, a full city block near LATTC/Ortho Institute Station could be reborn as a mixed-use, transit-oriented development.

The property - bounded by Figueroa, Flower, 22nd and 23rd Streets - is being reinvisioned as 2222 Figueroa, a collection of rental and for-sale housing above pedestrian-oriented commercial space. The project, which was filed with the City of Los Angeles earlier today, would be highlighted by 1,063 residential units - including 645 condominiums, 364 market rate apartments and 5% low income housing. Plans also call for amenities such as a swimming pool, bicycle accommodations, a beach volleyball court and multiple fitness centers.

Located midway between Downtown Los Angeles and the USC campus, the 2.3-acre development site is flanked by the Expo Line to the east and the MyFigueroa Streetscape Improvement project to the west. Accordingly, owner 2222 South Figueroa, LLC has proposed an active streetfront with 20,000 square feet of commercial space facing both Figueroa and the adjacent light rail station.

Paramount expansion plan approved by Los Angeles City Council

Paramount Pictures is in the business of greenlighting movie projects, but it was the studio itself that got the greenlight Tuesday when the Los Angeles City Council approved Paramount’s ambitious 25-year plan to overhaul and expand its historic lot in Hollywood.

The L.A. City Council voted unanimously to approve Paramount’s master plan, paving the way for the studio to add about 1.4 million square feet of space to its iconic headquarters on Melrose Avenue. The expansion was first announced in 2011 and is expected to cost the studio $700 million.

“We think it’s great for the city and the community,” said Sharon Keyser, a senior vice president at Paramount who has overseen the presentation of the expansion to the city. She said there is no start date yet for construction because the studio has been focused on seeing the project through the approval processes.

It's great to see how LA urbanizes more and gets pedestrian-friendly.
Such subcenters/smaller downtowns are badly needed in more LA area districts.

$55-Million Facility Completed at East L.A. College

East Los Angeles College (ELAC) has completed work on a $55-million expansion of its campus in Monterey Park.

The Arts and Humanities Building, designed by the architecture and engineering firm HGA, consists of a five-story structure featuring classrooms, offices, and language learning labs.

Latest update on Purple Line subway construction

Above is the latest update on construction of the Purple Line Extension’s first section between Wilshire/Western and the future Wilshire/La Cienega Station in Beverly Hills. There will also be new stations at Wilshire/La Brea and Wilshire/Fairfax, meaning the subway will one day run right up the gut of the Miracle Mile!

In the meantime, decking work continues for the Wilshire/La Brea Station. The decking will allow vehicle traffic to continue flowing on Wilshire Boulevard while the station is excavated underneath. Prep work is beginning for the Wilshire/Fairfax Station. Here a couple pics from work at Wilshire/Fairfax:

Sports complex rising from Great Park turf

Eight tennis courts are painted, fenced and lighted. Six rectangles of grass are evolving into soccer fields. And the steel-and-concrete stands for a 26,000-square-foot soccer stadium are rising from the ground.

Great Park developer FivePoint Communities gave the media a progress report Tuesday on the 175-acre sports park it’s building for the city of Irvine, saying tennis, soccer and beach volleyball facilities will be completed early next year.

Openly alluding to conflicts during a decade of delays, city and FivePoint officials said they now can point to “significant progress” in bringing the 14-year-old Great Park dream to reality.

Two-Tower DTLA Development Readies for Construction

Fresh off an impromptu groundbreaking ceremony for 1133 S. Hope Street, another Downtown development has suddenly begun prepping for construction.

Onni Group, a Canadian real estate developer, has set up protective fencing around a surface parking lot at 1212 Flower Street. The approximately 1.5-acre site, which abuts Pico Station, is slated for a pair of high-rise towers featuring 730 residential units, 8,000 square feet of retail space and parking accommodations for 830 vehicles.

Documents on file with the Los Angeles Department of City Planning call for towers that would rise to heights of 40 and 31 stories above street level. The glass and steel structures are being designed by Vancouver-based Chris Dikeakos Architects.

At Desert Trip, Rocking Beyond the Hits With a Vengeance

Desert Trip promoter Goldenvoice sold the bulk of the 75,000 passes for both weekends within five hours of putting them on sale in May. The promoter stands to gross about $160 million, making it the most lucrative music festival ever. Billboard estimates the cost of producing the show at upward of $100 million.

But don’t look at the event, organized by Goldenvoice, the promoters behind Coachella and its country cousin Stagecoach on the same site, simply as a celebration for rock fans navigating their golden years. Such a view, attendees argued, discounts the cross-generational and multicultural appeal each act has developed over careers collectively tallying more than 300 years.

Festival organizers dramatically revamped the grounds at the Empire Polo Field for Desert Trip, erecting three-story high grandstands on either side of the field immediately in front of a massive stage the size of a football field.

In Bob Dylan, Desert Trip now has a Nobel laureate on its bill

Among all the other groundbreaking aspects of this week’s Desert Trip festival, the concert can now add a Nobel Prize-winning headliner to its pedigree.

The news of Dylan earning literature’s highest honor came as a surprise to many.

Neptune Marina Development Gets Back on Track

The proposed redevelopment of the Neptune Marina apartments has gotten a much-needed shot in the arm.

According to a document from the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, Greystar Real Estate Partners has taken over a majority stake in the $300-million project, which encompasses nearly 10 acres of property overlooking the Marina del Rey waterfront. Legacy Partners, a California-based firm, has spearheaded the development process thus far and will retain a stake in the development.

A new look at snazzy pedestrian bridge that will connect the Broad to the subway

The Regional Connector will link up the Blue, Expo, and Gold lines and add three new subway stops in Downtown, one of which will hook up to the Broad Museum via an elevator and a pedestrian bridge over Hope Street. The look of that bridge might be a little different than previously imagined, new renderings first spotted today by Urbanize LA show.

First Look at Hollywood Presbyterian's $200-Million Expansion

An initial study published by the Los Angeles Department of City Planning provides new information about Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center's proposed $200-million expansion.

CHA Health Systems, owner of the medical campus at 1300 N. Vermont Avenue, filed plans earlier this year to add a five-story structure which would serve as the new home of its emergency department. The proposed building, currently labeled as the "Acute Care Replacement Hospital Building," would also house operations for Hollywood Presbyterian's surgical and NICU departments, as well as various ancillary functions.

Stan Kroenke got inspiration for Rams’ stadium from Vikings’ venue

Los Angeles Rams owner Stan Kroenke expects his team’s new stadium to be the best in the world. In the meantime, he sure likes U.S. Bank Stadium.

Kroenke visited the Vikings’ new venue for a Sept. 1 preseason game. He spent plenty of time walking around before the game looking for ideas that possibly could be used for the temporarily named City of Champions Stadium, which will open in Inglewood, Calif., in 2019, and is projected to cost $2.66 billion.

U.S. Bank Stadium, which cost $1.1 billion, was designed by HKS Architects in Dallas, the same firm doing the Rams’ stadium. In an interview with the Pioneer Press, Kroenke said the use of ethylene tetrafluoroethylene (EFTE), a fluorine-based clear plastic that covers half the U.S. Bank roof, played a role in architects using the same material for the roof of the Los Angeles-area stadium.

“It’s really beautiful,’’ Kroenke said of U.S. Bank. “We looked at a lot of things in detail. … I like the ability when the light comes in. That’s called ETFE …. We have a lot of that. We’re using it in L.A. in a different way.
