Wilshire Boulevard, once a mecca for drivers, is trying a different path. It could offer a blueprint for L.A.

Los Angeles built Wilshire Boulevard as a majestic path for the automobile, and perhaps no place reflected that grandeur more than the Miracle Mile.

In its heyday, this stretch of Wilshire offered drivers wide roadways divided by palm tree-lined medians and ornate street lamps built around sculpted metal of svelte topless women. Back then, the Miracle Mile was one of L.A.’s top shopping destinations, with gleaming neon signs luring drivers to sprawling parking lots behind the streamline-designed stores.

The retail scene on Wilshire began fading decades ago as department stores closed and shopping malls became more dominant. But over the last few years, the Miracle Mile has been the center of a remarkable transformation that offers a window into what a Los Angeles of the future might look like.

A tax hike to fund a major expansion of the Metro system is leading in early returns

A half-cent sales tax increase that would fund the most ambitious transit expansion in Los Angeles County history appeared to be leading in early returns Tuesday night.

Measure M would generate an estimated $120 billion over four decades for Metropolitan Transportation Authority bus and rail operations, system maintenance and fare subsidies, as well as a dramatic expansion of the county’s growing rail network.

The proposal has the potential to transform a traffic-choked region that began building a modern rail network decades after other U.S. cities. The tax revenue would fund the construction of nearly a dozen new rail lines, including twin rail tunnels through the Sepulveda Pass and new connections to Pacoima, Claremont, Artesia and Torrance.

Want to be LA developer? Voters demand more affordable housing

Early results show Los Angeles voters are favoring a ballot measure that would require developers to provide affordable housing if they want to be exempted from existing zoning and planning rules.

Initiative Ordinance JJJ was passing with 59.74 percent of the vote.

The measure, put forward by labor groups, would apply to residential projects that include more than 10 units and require general plan amendments or certain types of zoning changes. Under the proposal, the projects would need to meet affordable housing, training, local hiring and prevailing wage requirements.

Measure A Passes, Los Angeles Voters Approved Tax Hike for Parks

A measure that would impose a 1 1/2-cent-per-square- foot tax on improved properties in Los Angeles County to fund parks development and maintenance was being narrowly approved Tuesday night.

The proposed Measure A tax would raise an estimated $94 million annually, and the annual tax bill for a 1,500-square-foot house would be $22.50, according to the county.

The tax assessment would be based on the square footage of structures, not the overall size of the parcel of land on which a building sits. Parking structures would be exempt from the tax.

Eric Garcetti, Metro CEO thank LA County voters for passing Measure M

One by one, members of a diverse coalition of politicians, labor and environmental leaders from all parts of Los Angeles County praised the voters on Wednesday for approving Measure M, a half-cent sales tax that will raise $120 billion over 40 years for transportation improvements.

The measure, which received 70 percent of the vote, gives the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) a funding stream of $860 million every year, making the measure worth more than half of all the transit measures approved by voters across the country Tuesday night.

“This is the boldest, most comprehensive transportation investment initiative in North America and I want to thank the voters for bestowing on us that sacred trust,” said Metro CEO Phil Washington, one of many who spoke at a press conference inside the great ticket hall of Union Station.

Proposed Tower Moves Forward Across from the Beverly Center

Caruso Affiliated, the company helmed by developer/outdoor-mall maker Rick Caruso, is making some tweaks to his planned 333 La Cienega residential complex as it moves through the planning process, says Urbanize LA. After a presentation to the Mid City West Community Council, ULA says Caruso got the approval of the council’s Board of Directors by agreeing to a few terms that enhance the building’s effect on the community—setting aside 10 percent of the units in the development as affordable, and adding streetscape improvements including protected bike lanes and new crosswalks. (The neighborhood council doesn't have the final say, but its approval is a good start.)

Additionally, Caruso is looking into possibly increasing the size of an already planned plaza element of the development. The plaza could eventually stretch "farther south by reclaiming street space," says ULA.

Paseo Plaza Finally Moving Forward

Nearly one year after acquiring the abandoned Sears Hollywood site at 5601 Santa Monica Boulevard, Los Angeles-based real estate firm CIM Group appears to be proceeding with long-delayed plans for a mixed-use complex on the property.

The so-called Paseo Plaza development would rehab the vacant Sears building - portions of which date back to 1928 - and build multifamily residential units and retail space on an adjoining parking lot. According to a 2006 filing with the Department of City Planning, the project would create 375 residential units and more than 260,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space.

A project page from architecture firm Gruen Associates describes the development as being broken up into "smaller modulating unit," seated above 1,600 below-grade parking spaces for residents and commercial users. Permits filed with the Department of Building and Safety indicate that the buildings would rise up to seven stories, with five floors of wood-frame construction over a two-level concrete base.

Here are the “shovel ready” projects Measure M will fund first
A rail line to LAX, a subway under the Sepulveda Pass, a subway to Westwood

The passage of Measure M at the ballot box this week will herald sweeping changes for Los Angeles’ transportation system.

“Today we can stand here and say LA is leading the nation,” said Mayor Eric Garcetti at a press conference Wednesday, noting that Measure M’s $120 billion in funding represented more than 50 percent of the infrastructure investments approved by voters across the country on Tuesday.

While the half-cent sales tax increase doesn’t go into effect until next year, transit leaders are already promoting the projects that will transform the region. Which will affect your commute first?

Rams to break ground on $2.6 billion Inglewood stadium Thursday

The Los Angeles Rams will break ground on their $2.6 billion stadium in Inglewood, California, during a ceremony at 11 a.m. PT Thursday.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, Rams owner Stan Kroenke and Inglewood mayor James Butts will all be in attendance.

The 70,000-seat stadium and an adjacent, 6,000-seat performance venue will be the centerpiece of a 298-acre, mixed-use development on the site of the old Hollywood Park racetrack, set to be completed for the 2019 season. The Rams are playing at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in the meantime.

The ceremony will mark the start of digging for a 100-foot-deep hole where the stadium will reside. Ultimately the venue will also include a hotel, office space, retail and housing. It is scheduled to host the Super Bowl in 2021 and is in the running to host the 2024 Summer Olympics.
