You can spot a Stern a mile away. LA should have more buildings like this, though Orange County is probably more amenable to it.

Lumping Palmer fauxtresses with Stern's architecture is ignorant at best.

Creative Offices Coming to El Segundo

The post-Cold War decline of Southern California's aerospace industry left numerous industrial buildings in El Segundo without occupants. Decades later, the spread of Silicon Beach is finally offering a path forward.

Steelwave, a real estate firm based out of Foster City, is rehabilitating a former Raytheon research facility at 2030 E. Maple Avenue into creative office space. The one-story structure, located east of Sepulveda Boulevard, was previously used in the development of the B2 bomber and other defense type planes.

The adaptive reuse of the building, which is now known as Insite, will create nearly 100,000 square feet of commercial office space. The redesign by HLW Architects has reimagined the facility as an indoor-outdoor experience, with lush gardens along the exterior and a walkway cutting through the center of the building.

Earlier today, the Metro Board of Directors certified the final environmental impact report for the Airport Metro Connector's 96th Street Transit Station, which would connect the Green and Crenshaw/LAX lines to an automated people mover that would serve the LAX central terminal area.

The nearly $600-million project, funded by Measure R and M tax dollars, would would create a multimodal transit center on a 9.5-acre site one mile east of the airport. In addition to the people mover station, the project will include three light rail platforms, a bus plaza, a bicycle hub and passenger pick-up and drop-off areas.

LA does not need Stern AT ALL!
We need more Gehry,Thom Mayne or Eric Owen Moss.
Stern can focus on NY.

It seems like Wilshire Grand is updated multiple times a day, but it's the high-rise residentials that'll make the biggest difference to the feeling of Downtown, and they're hardly ever updated. Can't wait to see pictures of them all completed, filling out the skyline.

Huge Arts District development along L.A. River races for approval

Another high-design megaproject is being pitched for the Arts District, this time right alongside the Los Angeles River.

The Gallo family, longtime owner of the Rancho Cold Storage facility on Mesquit Street, has teamed with rising-star Danish architect Bjarke Ingels and real estate firm V.E. Equities to propose a sizable new development consisting of two connected buildings, 30 stories tall at their highest point.

The project, called 670 Mesquit, would hold approximately 800,000 square feet of office space, 250 rental apartments and two boutique hotels as well as shops and restaurants. Stretching north from the 7th Street Bridge almost as far as the forthcoming 6th Street Viaduct, it would replace Rancho Cold Storage’s warehouse buildings along Mesquit.

S36-Story Tower to Rise at K-Town's Wilshire Park Place
Mixed-use development would replace a grass lot with residential units and commercial space.

Jamison Services, Koreatown's largest property owner, plans to construct a mixed-use high-rise complex on the grassy lot adjoining Wilshire Park Place.

The proposed development, dubbed 3700 Wilshire, is slated for an approximately 3.2-acre property between Serrano and Oxford Avenues. The completed project would include an approximately 36-story tower and standalone retail buildings totaling 506 residential units and approximately 62,000 square feet of shops and restaurants.

Architecture firm CallisonRTKL has designed the proposed tower as a modern glass and steel edifice, featuring one, one-, two- and three-bedroom dwellings above a parking podium. Other planned features include LED signage, a fitness center, a swimming pool and a 34th floor sky lounge and amenity deck.

How fast would you like for it to move? LA's skyline is literally doubling in size.

This was posted on SSP. By 2020, LA will have a wholly new skyline.

It's sad because all that skyline will be destroyed by the earthquake.

Use your brain please. Do you think that LA's seismic history wasn't thought of when developers build these skyscrapers? C'mon now.

Boy I'm talking about the Big One that will eventually destroy the city, I'm not talking about a low magnitude earthquake. Scientists wait for the Big One.
