LOS ANGELES | Projects & Construction

My girlfriend is a disaster planner for LA county. Rest assured, when "the big one" hits, you're going to be a lot safer inside one of LA's skyscraper than in a two-story apartment building.

Exception: the pre-70s concrete condo towers, particularly the ones in Century City and Westwood, with grandfathered building codes and landlords refusing to update them. Those are coming down.

Exactly. Couldn't have picked a better three.

As for Stern, you don't need a Grey; get one of the whites, Richard Meier, who moved on from his brain dead early modernist work.

LA is due for a very strong quake that could cause a lot of damage, deaths, and trouble for the people of the city. This is true.

But to say the city is doomed to be "destroyed" is the stuff of Hollywood. Most earthquake forecasts are for earthquakes on the magnitude that the city has experienced several times in modern history (as well as other cities). Modern building codes of the largest buildings are designed to survive such things. The buildings in that picture are the ones most likely to survive such a quake.

Planning Commission Approves LGBT Center Expansion

Earlier today, the Los Angeles City Planning Commission unanimously approved expansion plans for the Los Angeles LGBT Center in Hollywood, paving the way for up to 235 units of affordable and permament supportive housing for seniors and homeless young people.

The new Anita May Rosenstein Campus, slated for a debut in early 2019, will also serve as the LGBT Center's headquarters and offer ground-floor retail space at Santa Monica Boulevard and McCadden Place.

Designed by the New York-based architecture firm Leong Leong, with direction from Santa Monica-based Killefer Flammang Architects, the campus will tie into the existing Village at Ed Gould Plaza with a series of courtyards and plazas. The Village already offers two theatres, gallery space and offices for AIDS/LifeCycle, amongst other functions.

Many cities likely to be hit by an earthquake.

How big do you think the "big one" will be? Also, did you know the capacity of the strike-slip faults versus dip-slip faults?

LA's building requirements are for the strongest type of earthquake that the faults in Southern California can produce. 8.0-8.5-ish, but most likely never past 8.3.

FYI, the strongest earthquakes are produced by dip-slip faults....now...investigate what Southern California has.

A 6.7 in LA in 1994 killed 57 people. That same earthquake in Latin America, Asia, or Africa kills hundreds of thousands.

Anaheim, Angels say yes to $450 million project next to stadium

The Anaheim City Council and the Angels gave their blessing to a developer’s plan to build a massive, L.A. Live-like project near Angel Stadium.

The council on Tuesday unanimously approved LT Global’s LT Platinum Center, a $450 million mixed-use development that would include a hotel, high-rise office buildings, stores, entertainment, apartments and condominiums on a 15-acre lot on State College Boulevard and Orangewood Avenue in the city’s Platinum Triangle area.

Two Mixed-Use Buildings Remake Pasadena's Walnut Avenue

Pasadena's Playhouse District has taken on new life in recent years, with the addition of several mixed-use buildings featuring commercial offices, apartments and ground-floor retail space. Two of its latest developments are now rising just blocks apart along Walnut Street.

At Walnut and Hudson Avenue, developer Greystar Real Estate Partners is midway through construction on the Hudson, a collection of three-to-five-story buildings which will feature 91 studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments above ground-floor retail space. Each unit will come complete with high ceilings, stainless teel appliances, walk-in closets and balconies.

Los Angeles Would Host the Greenest Games in Olympic History

Los Angeles is committed to delivering the "Greenest Games" in Olympics history, LA 2024 Chairman Casey Wasserman said Monday while pointing to Mayor Eric Garcetti's recent "visionary" speech at the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Conference as evidence.

Garcetti delivered the keynote address to a network of the world's largest cities at the C40 conference in Mexico City on Thursday, where he announced new plans for L.A. to curb greenhouse gas emissions, fight climate change, and increase electric vehicle use.

"The LA 2024 team are so proud of our mayor in taking this global leadership position on tackling climate change," Wasserman said. "The Olympic family can be totally confident that Los Angeles 2024 would be a Games-changer when it comes to environmental sustainability.

After delay, Hyatt hotel at Pasadena’s Paseo Colorado seems back on track

the demolition of a former Macy’s last year has received the funding it needs to begin construction by this summer.

Once slated to complete in mid-2017, the developers behind the project say they’re now aiming for a 2018 opening.

“The good news is it is moving forward,” said Nate Mercer, director of marketing for Ensemble Real Estate Solutions in Long Beach. “We’re anticipating a 14-month construction schedule as long as everything falls into place.”

Construction on huge Expo Line-adjacent mixed use project will begin in February

The large park-and-ride lot at the Culver City Metro station is not long for this world. Urbanize LA reports the parking lot will close February 6 so construction can begin on a five-story office building, a six-story hotel, and a six-story apartment building with 200 units.

The very transit-friendly, mixed user is called Ivy Station, and it received much acclaim from the Culver City Planning Commission in June. Each of the new buildings will offer ground floor space for shops and restaurants.

This 29-story tower is slated to rise in Downtown’s Financial District

The block bounded by Olive, Grand, Eighth, and Ninth in Downtown LA already has a big project underway, a nearly-30-story tower at 801 South Olive Street. Now plans are in the works for another tower in the same square.

The proposal, as laid out by developers in plans submitted to the city this week, is to put the 29-story tower on two parking lots just north of Olive Street and Ninth, at the southern edge of the Financial District, says the Downtown News.

Hackman buys Hudson’s development rights for Culver City creative office project

Hackman Capital Partners is on a Westside roll.

The firm closed on Hudson Pacific Properties’ development rights for the parcel at 9300 Culver Boulevard on Tuesday, taking over a contract with Culver City to build out a 110,000-square-foot complex of offices, retail, and restaurants, The Real Deal has learned.

The price of the deal was not disclosed, but Todd Tipton, Culver City’s project lead on the redevelopment of the publicly owned parcel, confirmed Hudson was the seller and Hackman the buyer. Development is slated to begin in 2017, according to the city’s website.

The acquisition of the site between Trader Joe’s and the Culver Hotel is an expansion move for Hackman as the firm further extends its Downtown Culver City presence. The highly visible triangle block sits directly across from Hackman’s Culver Studios, a legendary site where classic films such as “Gone With The Wind” and popular television shows such as “Scrubs” were filmed.
