IBM TO TRANSFORM LIVE GAME EXPERIENCE AT LAFC’S BANC OF CALIFORNIA STADIUM

IBM and LAFC announce a new strategic partnership that focuses on leveraging IBM’s innovative converged technology platforms to deliver a world class fan experience at LAFC’s new 22,000-seat Banc of California Stadium. This will be the first MLS soccer-specific stadium partnership for IBM and one of the first professional sports venues to commit to developing such an advanced platform.

IBM and LAFC are working together to reinvent what it means to be “connected” while in the stadium. This collaboration will provide an enhanced fan experience and will be flexible enough to adapt to new and evolving mobile technologies that seamlessly deliver via the cloud the most innovative and efficient operations for the team, stadium management, business shareholders, fans and others. Set to debut in 2018, the new development, which will bring more than $350 million in private investment to South Los Angeles, will be the first open-air stadium built in Los Angeles in over 30-years.

Carson promises Fashion Outlets of Los Angeles at site considered for NFL stadium

This time, they say, the Fashion Outlet of Los Angeles will materialize.

Santa Monica-based Macerich real-estate investment trust held a joint community meeting with city officials Monday night to show residents — PowerPoint presentation and all — that they’re serious about building the outlet mall.

“We’re moving fast and furious” to complete development plans, Macerich’s Executive Vice President Randy Brant said. “We’re treating this like the deal is done. We expect to start construction next year.”

The Fashion Outlets of Los Angeles at Carson would open in late 2018 or early 2019, he said. It would front the 405 Freeway between Del Amo and Avalon boulevards in a long, narrow 46-acre strip. The roughly 500,000-square-foot shopping center would include 150 stores.

Dream Hotel developer wants to add some ‘charm’ to a Hollywood alley

David Kuperberg, the chief development officer for Dream Hotel, which is opening a Hollywood location on Selma near Caheunga, says in an interview with Real Deal LA that he’s going to reinvigorate an alley where the public can access its bars and eateries.

“It will look like a bazaar and feel like a whole separate neighborhood,” he said. “All the food and beverage is accessed through the alley, so it’s a place for people to congregate. We are bringing in cobblestones and will make it charming.”

Dream Hotel’s Hollywood outpost is scheduled to open in 2017. Kuperburg tells the Real Deal it will have two restaurants on-site, including Tao. In fact, he wants to provide so many options for guests that they never leave: “Someone could come stay with us and never have to leave the premises. They can go to our food and beverage outlets, to our club and bars, and then for late night pizza and never have to leave the hotel.”

George Lucas' museum designs for L.A. and S.F.: a first look at competing plans

George Lucas is hoping the third time will be the charm for his Museum of Narrative Art, plans for which have already foundered in the face of strong community opposition in San Francisco and Chicago.

Actually that’s not quite right: Lucas is hoping that either the third or fourth time will be the charm. He’s decided to bundle those efforts together, unveiling two different designs for the museum, for different locations, simultaneously this week.

One is for a site on Treasure Island, in San Francisco Bay. The other is in Exposition Park in Los Angeles, near the Natural History Museum and just west of the Coliseum. Both are fluid, forward-looking designs from the office of 40-year-old Chinese architect Ma Yansong, a rising star who also worked with Lucas on the ill-fated proposal for the Chicago lakefront.

There's still a few buildings missing from this rendering. Directly across the street this will rise.



Among other buildings. DTLA is undergoing a huge boom.

To my mind, if it can't be built in the Presidio right next to Lucasfilm, or in Marin near Skywalker Ranch, then Expo Park (next to USC, where Lucas might be the most prominent of their very prominent film school alums) is the most appropriate location.

Not to mention that in Expo Park it would be be accessible by rail, and part of an already impressive cluster of attractions -- versus Treasure Island, which in addition to having only the first inkling of interesting things to do and see, is only accessible by ferry, bus, or terrifying off-ramp.

Fantastic design reference, it does bear a similar design feel to the prequels. Also I think LA is much more suited as it will enhance the area and Garcetti is on board (then again so was Rahm Emanuel so that means very little) but i think turning two surface lots into park land with a museum on top and a larger parking structure below should get the park board on the band wagon.

LA is hosting one of the biggest championships in the world and you (probably) didn’t know it

On Saturday, thousands of fans will flood downtown Los Angeles and tens of millions more will watch online as the most popular video game competition in the world, the League of Legends World Championship, closes out its finals at Staples Center.

You may have started tuning out at “video game” and you maybe scoff at the idea of “eSports,” but last year, 36 million people around the world watched the finals for League of Legends. That’s more than tuned in for World Series, the NBA Finals and the Stanley Cup Final.

Released in 2009 by Santa Monica-based Riot Games, League of Legends has rapidly become one of the most played video games in world. While the majority of its 100 million a month players live in Asia, plenty of players reside in the U.S.

New Details for Proposed 8th & Fig Tower

An initial study published by the Los Angeles Department of City Planning offers up new details for the Fig & 8th development, a proposed high-rise development that would replace one of Downtown's most prominent parking lots.

Mitsui Fudosan America, the U.S. subsidiary of the Japanese conglomerate Mitsui Fudosan, has owned the one-acre subject site at 8th and Figueroa Streets for more than 20 years. They plan to remove the existing parking lot to construct a 42-story high-rise edifice that would feature 436 residential units, approximately 10,000 square feet of ground-floor commercial space and a 479-car garage with four below-grade levels and four above-grade levels.

The proposed 489-foot tall tower is being designed by Johnson Fain, the Chinatown-based architecture firm behind recent Downtown developments such as Blossom Plaza, College Station and the La Plaza Cultura Village. Renderings of the finished product portray a shimmering glass and steel tower, rising above a podium. Outdoor amenity decks would be situated at both the rooftop and above the building's parking garage.

So, a Korean mixed used supertall, numerous Chinese residential high rise developments, and now a Japanese residential skyscraper.

Santa Monica Proper Hotel Begins Construction

The Kor Group, a Los Angeles-based real estate firm, has announced the start of construction for a luxury lifestyle hotel in Downtown Santa Monica.

Villa hotel project approved in Palm Springs

I’ve been hearing a lot of interest and buzz among readers about a new hotel concept planned for downtown Palm Springs.

Home Partners, an Irvine-based development firm, plans to build 14 “villa” hotel units on an empty rectangle of desert at 282 S. Indian Canyon Drive (near the Baristo Road intersection.)

The project would consist of multi-story units, arranged as a meandering collection of minimalist white cubes, which would total 81 bedrooms. The project would also include a banquet and café facility. The outdoor space would be multi-use and available for private events. Last week, the project received unanimous approval from the Palm Springs Planning Commission.
