Apartments Break Ground at Prominent Hollywood Property

Work is finally getting underway for a multifamily residential development on a prominent site in Hollywood.

Last week, heavy equipment arrived on-site on at 1840 N. Highland Avenue, an large parking lot located north of the Hollywood & Highland Center. The property - which fronts Franklin Place, Highland, Las Palmas and Franklin Avenues - is slated for a podium-style apartment complex featuring 118 residential units.

New Design Emerges for East Hollywood Development

A leasing brochure produced by CBRE and Kennedy Wilson points to a redesign of CIM Group's proposed development at 5601 Santa Monica Boulevard, formerly known as Paseo Plaza.

The project, which is described as a an "Urban Power Center," dates back to 2006, when Culver City-based Continental Development Group first entitled the property. Under the revised proposal, CIM plans to rehabilitate the interior of the historic Sears Building - built in 1928 - as retail space, while its rooftop would be converted into a 20,000-square-foot park featuring with landscaping, outdoor seating and seasonal programming.

East Hollywood is kind of an un-missable place that's really inspiring.

Alexander: CBU's last hurrah for old gym, preparation for new arena

Cal Baptist’s men’s basketball team opens its regular season Friday afternoon in cozy Van Dyne Gym, with a 4 p.m. game against Montana State-Billings as part of a four-team tournament.

What was once a skeleton of girders and framework has taken shape. The building currently known as the CBU Events Center — and that name almost certainly will change when a donor or a sponsor kicks in the right amount of money — is more than 60 percent complete.

Those who are allowed to tour the interior of the construction site can at last visualize the finished product: a $73 million, 153,000 square foot facility, with 5,050 seats (and room to expand to more than 6,000) for basketball, concerts, commencement and chapel and other campus uses, which CBU administrators have stressed will take up the vast majority of the available dates.

Great to have something like this in Riverside.

Someone should do a compilation of all the apartments that have the same red, white, grey, sometimes yellow, blocky design scheme in LA. Must number in the dozens.

Every time I drive by downtown, I try to picture how it's going to look when it all fills in, but there are way too many projects to keep all in my head.

Irvine's economic success story
The O.C. center of innovation, technology and creativity is an employment powerhouse

By night, 250,000 people call the dynamic and diverse city of Irvine home. By day, that number more than doubles. Irvine is the region’s job engine, and it’s a shiny, high-tech one that attracts a highly educated, highly skilled workforce that swells the city’s daytime population to 600,000.

“The city is a major attractor for the county in terms of workforce, jobs, innovation and foreign investment,” says Lucy Dunn, CEO of the Orange County Business Council. “Scientists and engineers originally flocked to the county for military research and manufacturing jobs, which began to translate to basic bioscience and hi-tech research,” she says. “That spurred what are now some of the leading companies in the world, including Irvine-based Allergan and Broadcom.”

Irvine hosts 49 of the top 100 publicly traded companies headquartered in Orange County, according to the Orange County Business Journal. More than one-third of the companies ranked in the Fortune 500 have corporate presence in the city, according to the 2016 Guide to Irvine. There are 200,000 jobs in the city, resulting in a jobs-to-population ratio of 94.8 percent, the best ratio of all American cities of its size or larger. Last year, a division of the Financial Times of London ranked Irvine as the No. 3 Small American City of the Future for Economic Potential.

Thrills are par for the course at new $60 million Porsche facility in Carson

The driver’s timing is off and the 420-horsepower car spins around on the ice aimlessly. But it’s not in danger. This was just a test run around the new track at the Porsche Experience Center in Carson.

The $60 million Carson complex opens to the public on Friday on the site of the former Dominguez Hills Golf Course adjacent to the 405 Freeway at 19800 S. Main St., across from the docking site of the West Coast’s Goodyear blimp.

The facility is home to 4.1 miles of winding roadway courses designed to flummox and excite the most experienced drivers.

Work Underway at Santa Monica's Trailer Park Redevelopment
Multifamily residential complex rises near Expo Line Station.

The Millennium East Village, which is rising from a 3.5-acre site at 2930 Colorado Avenue, will consist of a series of five-story buildings featuring 374 residential units, coming in studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom floor plans. Approved plans call for 38 of the apartments to be set aside as affordable housing, as well as 25,000 square feet of commercial space along Colorado Boulevard.

Renderings of the development, which is being designed by the Cuningham Group, portray modern buildings, intersected with walkways and open space. Cunignham's website describes the Village as a "fluid, interconnected campus," reconnecting a sprawling development site with the surrounding street grid.

Colorful structures are a great way to add some bright colors to your space.

Los Angeles Rams break ground on $2.6-billion Inglewood stadium, 'new era' of NFL

With more than 100 invited guests in attendance — politicians, media, members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame and even NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell — Kroenke and others plunged shiny silver shovels into a pile of dirt and extolled the virtues of a privately financed stadium that’s expected to cost more than any other.

“This thing is going to be unbelievable,” Kroenke said. “I don’t think people really understand the scale of this.”

“For the first time, we have a true indoor/outdoor venue. … It’s totally unique in the world,” said Mark Williams, who heads the sports and entertainment division at stadium architect HKS.

Finally it all starts falling in place.

L.A. County supervisors place the welcome mat out for George Lucas' museum

The L.A. County Board of Supervisors gathered to vote on whether to officially support bringing George Lucas’ proposed Lucas Museum of Narrative Art to Los Angeles’ Exposition Park.

The symbolic vote, however, was unanimous: Yes.

On Wednesday, leaders from the worlds of Hollywood, museums, educators and nonprofits crammed into the first two rows of a cavernous hearing room to show their support for the project. Among those on hand: DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg, L.A. County Museum of Art CEO and Director Michael Govan, Academy Museum of Motion Pictures’ leader Kerry Brougher, as well as representatives from Exposition Park’s Natural History Museum, California Science Center and California African American Museum and nearby USC, Lucas’ alma mater.

Will the Inglewood Rams stadium have any direct rail-based transit access. The current plans only have the future Airport line with the Inglewood station 1.5 miles away, which no one will ever walk. It would really suck if a 22nd Century stadium is completely reliant on cars and shuttle buses for access, especially since a whole development the size of a small city is supposed to be developed around it!

Also, that Tribune Media tower is absolutely fantastic and I hope they do not value-engineer it!
