Westfield proposes $1.5-billion mixed-used complex at site of aging Warner Center mall

Westfield Corp. plans to demolish its struggling Promenade shopping mall in Warner Center and replace it with a massive mixed-use complex with nearly 1,500 homes, two hotels and a concert venue.

The $1.5-billion project is meant to serve as a downtown district for the West San Fernando Valley and would be an extension of Westfield’s recently opened $350-million Village at Topanga “lifestyle center” across the street.

In additional to housing, plans for a new Promenade include shops, offices and a 15,000-seat arena for concerts and sports.

Also envisioned are 7 acres of open space, including a 1-acre park, known as Promenade Square, that could host outdoor movie nights.

Carnival is set to take over the Spruce Goose dome, expanding its Long Beach cruise facility

The giant white dome that once housed Howard Hughes’ famed Spruce Goose aircraft is getting a new long-term tenant: Carnival Cruise Line, which plans to sail larger ships to Long Beach amid a resurgence in the cruise industry.

Carnival will expand its Long Beach Cruise Terminal operation from 66,000 square feet to 142,000 square feet. It had been using half of the 33-year-old dome but will take over the entire building next year.

Carnival reached its expansion agreement with Urban Commons, a Los Angeles company chosen by Long Beach last year as the leaseholder of the 45-acre Queen Mary complex, which includes the dome, built at a cost of $4 million to hold the Spruce Goose.

Urban Commons, which is proposing to build a $250 million retail and entertainment complex on the site, said in a statement that it will try to “identify alternative areas” for the ice sculpture attraction and others that had been held in the dome. It said that might include developing “new temporary or permanent structures.”

Why a huge sports complex is pegged for Lake Elsinore

The proposed Lake Elsinore Diamond Sports Center would feature about 520,000 square feet of indoor floor space split between two levels. The center is targeted for 23 acres abutting the north side of the Lake Elsinore Diamond minor-league baseball stadium.

“The magnitude of this project is huge, arguably the biggest of its kind,” Lake Elsinore Community Development Director Grant Taylor said.

The 433,000-square-foot ground floor could accommodate 58 volleyball courts or be divided into 33 basketball courts. In addition, it would feature a championship arena with seating for 3,000 fans, a food court and family-style restaurant.

An 89,000-square-foot upper level would line the inner perimeter while overlooking the courts and arena. It would offer a sports bar, VIP suites, team rooms, offices and other functional uses. The building would be wired to allow for national television broadcasts, according to a news release from the applicant, LE Diamond Holdings.

If built according to plan, the Lake Elsinore complex would offer more courts and more than double the floor space of the American Sports Centers-Anaheim in the Orange County, which is touted on its website as the largest indoor court facility in the world.

Second Phase of Sunset Bronson Studios Expansion Revealed

A marketing website from Hudson Pacific Properties has unveiled renderings for CUE, a creative office building now under construction on the Sunset Bronson Studios lot.

The five-story structure - designed by the global architecture firm Gensler - will offer approximatley 95,000 square feet of leasable floor area with column-free spans, high-ceilings, large windows and terraced balconies. Plans also call for a 9,500-square-foot rooftop amenity deck, as well as electric car charge stations and bike storage in an adjacent parking garage.

The project, scheduled for completion in Summer 2017, is targeting LEED Gold Certification.

CUE is the second major component of the $150-million Sunset Bronson Studios expansion, which started work in late 2014. It comes on the heels of the 14-story Icon tower, which will become the new regional headquarters of Netflix.

‘The Billboard’ Recommended as a Sunset Strip ‘Spectacular’

The Belltower was chosen from among proposals submitted by nine teams, whose members included prominent architects such as the late Zaha Hadid, billboard companies such as JC Decaux and arts organizations such as MAK. The list of nine proposals was winnowed down to four by a jury that included representatives from outdoor advertising companies, architects, planners and urban designers and a variety of City Hall departments.

The city’s Community Development Department is recommending that the City Council authorize installing additional pilot digital sign projects from the four finalist teams. In addition to Orange Barrel, they include JCDecaux /Zaha Hadid Project Management Ltd./ Buro hapold; Outfront Media/Gensler/MAK and Tait Towers Inc.

MiceAge Disneyland Rumor Update – A Force To Be Reckoned With

The construction scaffolding has been growing on the sides and back of Tower of Terror, and by Halloween it should be nearly fully shrouded in scaffolding and tarps. That’s about the time that the construction footprint will have to expand enough to shut down the DCA parade route through the remainder of the construction timeline until next May. Without the ability to perform a parade during construction DCA will still go full steam ahead on one of Christie’s pet projects, the food and merch “festivals” in DCA that will begin November 11th and continue through the spring in one form or another. And when the scaffolds come down, this is what will be seen from throughout DCA – as the video says, inspired by oil refineries:

During fiscal year ’17 DCA will continue to be the home of movie sneak peeks; Dr. Strange this Friday in the Sunset Showcase Theater, Moana on October 14th in the Bugs Life Theater, and then Beauty and the Beast and Cars III next spring. The big 400 seat Sunset Showcase Theater, formerly the Frozen and Muppets venue, has been refurbished and plussed up by WDI this fall. They’ve removed all the Frozen references, and slathered on new paint and carpet and trim to make it more like a Hollywood movie palace. WDI has also upgraded the 3-D projectors to allow for more impressive audience-surrounding visuals, in addition to the theater’s usual water, wind, lighting and projection effects.

It’s a big upgrade over the much smaller theater in WDW, where they will show Dr. Strange and other previews in simple 2-D and without any ability for in-theater special effects. WDI and the Studios just love doing these previews at Disneyland, as the SoCal demographics pulled in are in the sweet spot of affluent families who can help create proper buzz for the latest movie before it opens. Unfortunately, the WDW management team just hasn’t gotten it together to upgrade their preview theater and therefore show basic 2-D previews there.

While the creative vision for the two Star Wars rides are ground-breaking and overwhelmingly huge, the operational capacity is tiny. Each attraction is not expected to get more than 1,500 riders per hour, or roughly half the hourly capacity of Pirates of the Caribbean. Senior execs like Michael Colglazier and Bob Chapek are unfazed by that reality and never pushed WDI for higher capacity, as they have no real operational experience on a Disneyland scale. But there are some folks at Imagineering, who have worked in the industry for decades, who are worried that the low hourly capacity of these epic mega-rides will negatively impact the visitor experience due to frustration and disappointment for at least the first few years of operation. Especially if the showmanship for the lucky few is as impressive as WDI hopes it will be. So, happy new fiscal year to you and yours. After a half decade of solid growth, topped off by the wildly successful Diamond Celebration, the Anaheim property has never been more financially successful. The art and business of theme park operations might get very little respect from Burbank and Glendale bosses, but it will be interesting to see how the Anaheim team is backed up by those bosses when WDI creative execs challenge them to rethink the entire theme park experience for paying customers in Star Wars Land. The next few years should prove to be very, very interesting, at least for those who actually stick around in Anaheim long enough to see it. Well folks, that’s our Disneyland rumor update. Now, let’s hear from you.

Excavation for the Rams' stadium could begin in just weeks

The start of excavation for the Rams’ $2.6-billion stadium in Inglewood may be weeks away.

“We’re moving to try and get into construction sometime in the next month,” Gerard McCallum II, project manager for the Hollywood Park Land Co., said Wednesday.

In another sign of progress on the project at the 298-acre site, the Federal Aviation Administration this week approved the first of several pieces of heavy equipment to be used during construction.

The FAA determined that a 110-foot-tall LB 44 rotary drill rig won’t pose a hazard to air navigation. Six other applications are pending with the FAA for large cranes to be used for the stadium project.

Infrastructure work at the site has been going on for the last year and a half. The excavation will be the most dramatic sign of progress on the stadium that’s expected to be sunk at least 100 feet into the ground.

How the California grizzly bear walked off the flag and became a global fashion icon

“California as a brand is incredibly valuable overseas,” said economist Kevin Klowden, who directs the Milken Institute’s California Center in Santa Monica. “It probably does better outside the state than inside.”

He sees it in the explosion of Chinese direct investment in California, which, according to a California Center study released earlier this year, grew from $100 million in 2005 to $9 billion in 2015.

He sees it in all manner of foreign investors seeking to secure a piece of California real estate, or agriculture, or Silicon Valley innovation.

Economic and design experts note that the phrase “designed in California” now trumps the notion of made in California. They point to the message Apple inserts into boxes that carry its phones to consumers worldwide: “Designed by Apple in California.”

Unlike the Confederate flag, which still stirs controversy given its national context, the California flag has become all but untethered from its history. Only rarely do critics arise to voice complaints about its origins.

“It has become,” said Stuart Kendall, associate professor of design at the California College of the Arts, “a free-floating signifier.”

What it signifies is not an awkward affair from California’s past, but rather all that California has come to represent: counter-culture, surfers, a nation-state, movies, Silicon Valley, fine wine (conquerors imbibe wisely), second chances, personal renewal and all the rest wrapped up in that ball of glittering wax known as the California Dream.

Anaheim, Angels say yes to $450 million project next to stadium

The Anaheim City Council and the Angels gave their blessing to a developer’s plan to build a massive, L.A. Live-like project near Angel Stadium.

The council on Tuesday unanimously approved LT Global’s LT Platinum Center, a $450 million mixed-use development that would include a hotel, high-rise office buildings, stores, entertainment, apartments and condominiums on a 15-acre lot on State College Boulevard and Orangewood Avenue in the city’s Platinum Triangle area.

Construction on the LT Platinum Center is slated to start next year, with completion in 2022.

The development will feature a 350-foot-tall residential tower that would be the most visually striking element of the complex, the Platinum Triangle’s first grocery store, a police substation, a public park, parking structures, as well as other commercial, retail and entertainment space.

35-Story Tower Would Become Long Beach's Tallest Building

Long Beach was beyond excited when the Shoreline Gateway project was taken back off the shelf and brought into reality. Now, the second phase of the project—just after completion of the $70M, 17-story Current tower—will become more tangible as the group developing the new 35-story face the Planning Commission this Thursday to seek formal entitlement for the project.

Initially set to be 221 units with 6,367 sq. ft. of ground floor retail, Shoreline Development Partners are now asking to have their master plan updated to build 94 more units and 344 sq. ft. of additional retail space. This would put the Rockefeller Partners Architects-designed building—set to be the city’s tallest at 417 feet high, usurping One World Trade Center which currently stands at 397 feet—at 315 residential units and 6,711 sq. ft. of retail space. Additionally, the previously-approved 393 parking spaces will increase to 458 while pushing the subterranean parking garage from two levels deep to five.

Dubbed the East Tower for now, a 10,000 sq. ft. plaza will conjoin it and the recently finished Current, which is almost at full occupancy.

Even Peter Zumthor wasn’t impressed by renderings of LACMA's redesign

In an exclusive interview during a recent trip to London, Zumthor explained his vision for the project.

“The museum is not organised in timelines, periods or geographical regions,” he said. “It's organised like a forest with clearings inside, where we have free choice to go to this clearing, or to the next. I would like to allow an experience of art where people can go and look at the art without didactics, without premature explanations, and make their own experience.”

“The museum is open to the outside; this is very important,” Zumthor told CLAD. “You’ll have this almost sacred, sublime kind of experience, but I would also like to accommodate the profane, the dirty, the normal, the everyday.

“You start off down on the ground – this is normal city life – then as you go up you are received in a beautiful big palace for the people. From there you can go to the clearings, and that’s where you have the most intimate and maybe more private experiences of art."

“They were conventional renderings, which I personally don't like so much," he explained, adding that his studio is currently working on photos taken from models which are prepared especially for the purpose. “The models allow us to take pictures with natural daylight, the light of the sun, which makes a lot of difference,” he said. “These will explain the building better.”

New Renderings for Eight-Story Westlake Project

The website of design visualization studio Archeon Light has revealed additional renderings for a proposed mixed-use development in Westlake.

In July, Urban View Investments, LLC submitted plans to the city to raze a series of small residential buildings on a one-acre property bounded by Hartford Avenue, 5th and Witmer Streets. In its place, the Los Angeles-based firm plans construct an eight-story, 174,000-square-foot building featuring 182 market rate apartments and 36 units of affordable housing.

The proposed development, which is being designed by Reed Architectural Group, appears as a contemporary mid-rise building clad with glass, metal panels and stucco.

New Look for Playa Vista Office Building

The $70-million project, which is slated for a vacant lot near the intersection of Lincoln and Jefferson Boulevards, would consist of a six-story structure featuring approximately 128,000 square feet of creative office space.

Renderings portray a contemporary design with punched windows and a translucent metal canopy. The new building would be linked the the existing Water's Edge complex through a shared amenity center.

WE3 is being developed by a joint venture between real estate firm DivcoWest and Robert Maguire, the legendary Los Angeles builder behind landmark Downtown projects such as the U.S. Bank Tower.

Reopened Terminal 6 at LAX designed to mimic a drive down Sunset Boulevard

The terminal, which reopened Wednesday following a $70.5 million renovation, is the latest in an airportwide modernization project. It was designed to mimic a drive along Sunset Boulevard, beginning in downtown Los Angeles and ending at the beach, according Los Angeles International Airport officials.

The new look begins after the Transportation Security Administration checkpoint, with concrete and metallic finishes meant to resemble downtown, giving way to an open space modeled after Sunset Plaza. Renovated hallways then transform into the Sunset Strip section of the terminal, and then to the Garden Terrace zone, where many of the terminal’s new restaurants and shops will be housed.

Travelers will end their trip down Sunset Boulevard at gates modeled after the California coast.

Park Hyatt Coming to DTLA's Oceanwide Plaza

According to the Wall Street Journal, Park Hyatt has signed on to operate the hotel component of the $1-billion mixed-use development, which is now rising across the street from Staples Center in Downtown Los Angeles. The project, which is the first U.S. venture of the Beijing-based Oceanwide Real Estate Group, will consist of three high-rise buildings that include 504 condominiums and a 153,000-square-foot open-air galleria featuring shops and restaurants.

This will be the first Los Angeles area location for Park Hyatt, which is the top-tier brand of Hyatt Hotels Corporation. The company has sought a Los Angeles County location for more than a decade, and was lured to Downtown by the array of new destinations such as L.A. Live.
