Housing, eateries and offices are planned for $100-million L.A. Flower District project

The Southern California Flower Market, a downtown Los Angeles institution, hopes to transform its property into a mixed-use community of offices, apartments and restaurants — while still selling the roses, carnations and snapdragons it has for more than a century.

The plans, recently filed with the city, are meant to fund the redevelopment of the market’s aging home at 755 Wall St. and enable the 104-year-old business to stay in an increasingly luxurious and residential city center.

Specifically, plans call for the demolition of one building to construct a 15-story residential tower with around 320 units, 10% of them below market rate, Yamabe said.

At the base of the tower would be shops and restaurants that would spill out onto a paseo connecting to the other Flower Market building, which will be renovated. There, flowers would be sold on the ground floor, and creative offices on the second story could be leased to technology firms and others.

Renovated Coliseum Press Box to be Named Otis Booth Press Box

The press box at the to-be-renovated Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum will be named the Otis Booth Press Box in recognition of a $7.5 million gift from the Otis Booth Foundation.

Last year, USC announced plans to renovate and restore the Coliseum. The estimated $270 million renovation, privately funded by USC, will begin after the 2017 Trojan football season and will be completed for the 2019 home opener.

Among the planned renovations is the building of a new structure on the south side of the stadium that will house suites, loge boxes and club seats, topped by a new press box. Other renovations include replacing every seat in the stadium, adding aisles and increasing leg room, installing new video screens and lighting, adding new concession stands and upgrading concourses, as well as restoring the iconic peristyle

Local control arrives Tuesday for Ontario airport

The city of Los Angeles is set to hand over L.A./Ontario International Airport to its home city at 7 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 1, a year after the transfer was agreed upon by both cities.

Regional officials who championed the hand-over said local control would bring about the needed policies that would increase destinations, traffic and economic growth at the airport and surrounding area.

Under the agreement, Ontario International Airport Authority will pay Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) $50 million from passenger facility charges in the first five years; and another $70 million from passenger facility charges in the final five years.

Local airport authority officials say full control will allow them to finally move forward on plans to redevelop land at the airport. The money generated there will help offset the landing fee costs and — they hope — entice airlines to return and expand flights.

L.A. City Council approves Frank Gehry's project on the Sunset Strip

The Los Angeles City Council on Tuesday unanimously approved a mixed-use development designed by Frank Gehry that will anchor the eastern edge of the Sunset Strip.

The relatively swift approval of the project Tuesday was a contrast to last week’s three-hour discussion on the famed architect’s design for 8150 Sunset Blvd. The five-building complex at Sunset and Crescent Heights boulevards will include two residential towers, terraced gardens and a shopping center.

Elected officials for both Los Angeles and West Hollywood as well as some neighborhood groups had voiced concern about the project, which originally included a 234-foot-tall tower. Critics believed the tower would be out of scale with the neighborhood. Others worried the project would bring too much traffic to an already busy intersection.

Huge and contentious South LA project clears another city committee

Controversial plans to construct two high-rise towers, a hotel, and lots of restaurants and shops on two city blocks in South Los Angeles cleared an important hurdle Tuesday, winning unanimous support from the city’s Planning and Land Use Committee.

In endorsing the project, the committee rejected two appeals that had been filed against it over its size and lack of affordable housing. The plans now move to the City Council for final approval.

The Reef would consist of 1,444 condos and apartments, a grocery store, a gallery, a hotel with 208 rooms, outdoor plazas, and more than 67,000 square feet of shops and restaurants. The buildings would range in height from 77 to 420 feet, and they would rise from the site of a parking lot and warehouse at South Broadway and Washington Boulevard, southeast of the 110 and 10 freeway interchange, not far from Los Angeles Trade Technical College.

Campus Development to Break Ground in Chatsworth

Uncommon, a real estate firm founded by Jason Larian and Ryan Hekmat, has announced the groundbreaking of "24," a campus-style development in Chatsworth consisting of apartments, creative offices and retail space.

The 24-acre site at Winnetka Avenue and Prairie Street, formerly a Los Angeles Times printing plant, is slated to become the new headquarters of MGA Entertainment, a manufacturer of toys and electronics, including the popular Bratz dolls. The project calls for the adaptive reuse of the former printing facility, creating approximately 255,000 square feet of office space. Additionally, Uncommon intends to build a series of low-rise structures on the surrounding parking lots, creating 660 apartments above shops and restaurants, interspersed with community-oriented green space.

According to a master plan by Santa Monica-based Killefer Flammang Architects, the development will also incorporate a gymnasium, two swimming pool plazas, a sports park, community gardens, a pre-school, a yoga studio, outdoor walking tracks and an amphiteater.

Maybe Disneyland should have a land called 'Constructionland'

Let’s talk about the biggest new thing at the Disneyland Resort this year – construction.

It’s all over the place at the resort, from the 14-acre dirt field that greets visitors as they drive across the Ball Road flyover from I-5, to the scaffolding that has consumed the resort's tallest icon – The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror.

While Disney has done a relatively good job of keeping the “Star Wars” land construction at Disneyland out of the view of guests inside the park, it's that Tower of Terror construction at Disney California Adventure that has Disney fans talking.

Proposed Cambria Hotel will be reasonably priced for Downtown LA

Plans were filed Thursday for another hotel in Downtown LA’s South Park neighborhood that, if approved by the city, would be set up in a new, 18-story building with a lobby lounge, a café, and a rooftop pool.

The 247 rooms would be reasonably priced, probably around $200/nightly, and geared towards “cost conscious business travelers and millennials,” says Sun Capital, which is financing the project.

Called The Cambria at LA Live, it would be operated by Choice Hotels International.

Rail-to-Rail/River project aims to open first segment in 2019

•Segment A is about 6.4 miles long between the Crenshaw/LAX Line’s Fairview Station in Inglewood and Santa Fe Avenue in Huntington Park (the dotted green line on the above map). This portion — called “rail to rail” — is funded and in the environmental study/design phase. Metro is aiming to open this segment in 2019 prior to the Crenshaw/LAX Line opening later that year.

•Segment A, as the map shows, would provide direct access to the Crenshaw/LAX Line, the Silver Line’s Slauson Station and the Blue Line’s Slauson Station — plus many busy Metro north-south routes, including the heavily-used buses that run on Vermont Avenue. This is also a corridor near many homes, apartments, jobs and schools. See the screen grab below from Google Maps.

•Four routes remain under study for Segment B that would connect to the river. This part of the the project is called “rail to river” and the four options range from 2.1 miles to 4.3 miles long.

LA’s starring role in ‘La La Land’

The New York Times just published an interview with director Damien Chazelle about the look and feel of his new movie La La Land, a swoon-worthy song and dance ode to old Hollywood, modern Los Angeles, and its native dreamers.

Chazelle, who directed Oscar-winning Whiplash, set the movie in Los Angeles, shooting scenes on the Colorado Street Bridge and at the Griffith Observatory and Grand Central Market, at least from what we can tell from previews. There’s even a bombastic dance number with more than 100 dancers that was, according to Deadline, filmed over two very hot days on the 105/110 interchange. Chazelle got the freeway shut down, but he got Angels Flight—a funicular that used to ferry riders to the top of Bunker Hill and which has been closed for a few years now—up and running for another scene.

“L.A., even more so than any other American city, obscures, sometimes neglects, its own history,” Chazelle told the Times. “But that can also be its own magical thing, because it’s a city that reveals itself bit by bit, like an onion, if you take the time to explore it.”

38-Acre Creative Office Campus to Rise in Tustin

Next year, Lincoln Property Company (LPC) plans to break ground on Flight, a 38-acre campus that is being marketed as the first ground-up creative office development in Orange County. Alcion Ventures of Boston is partnering on the development.

The project, which would rise on Barranca Avenue in the City of Tustin, would create a collection of low-rise and mid-rise structures totaling 470,000 square feet of office space. A series of four-story buildings will cater to larger tenants, offering floor plates between 90,000 square feet and 130,000 square feet. Smaller buildings at the adjoining “Platform” campus would cater to companies seeking spaces between 7,000 square feet and 15,000 square feet. Both would be served by 15,000 square feet of joint amenities, including a food hall, a community center and conference space.

Parke Miller, an Executive Vice President with LPC’s Southern California Division, described Flight as the result of a multi-year collaboration between the developer and the City of Tustin. The two parties have been engaged in an exclusive negotiating agreement during that time period, in which LPC has moved forward with design work and permitting for the development.
