Universal Studios Hollywood breaks attendance record and reaches capacity for the first time

The new year started off well for Universal Studios Hollywood, as the theme park broke attendance records Monday and was forced to close its gates for the first time in the park’s history.

Although the theme park doesn’t report daily attendance numbers, industry experts estimate that the park welcomed more than 40,000 visitors Monday — so many that the park’s gates were closed to new customers just after noon.

The park also has announced a partnership with Nintendo to add attractions based on the Japanese company’s video game characters, such as Super Mario Bros. and Donkey Kong.

We are also aware of another issue important to the community: the possibility of adding new Red/Purple Line Stations to serve the Arts District, where many new real estate projects are being built or proposed.

Second SilverRock hotel plans OK'd; project on track for spring groundbreaking

A site development permit for a 200-room lifestyle hotel at SilverRock was approved by the La Quinta City Council Tuesday, moving the project another step forward to an anticipated May groundbreaking.

It is the second site development permit approved for the project and also includes a new clubhouse, 10 golf villas and a 66-unit condominium development. The permit was approved by the Planning Commission on Dec. 27.

In December, the council approved a site development permit for the 140-room five-star quality luxury hotel, 29 luxury-branded residential units and a meeting/conference center.

O.C. saw seven hotels open in 2016

Hotel development in the county saw another year of growth as properties opened, changed hands or underwent massive renovations.

Seven hotels opened, according to Irvine-based Atlas Hospitality Group. Of the seven, four were in the Anaheim Resort District.

Deals continued a hot streak, with 19 hotels selling for a combined $222.22 million. That’s down from $1.749 billion in deals for 27 hotels in 2015. Last year’s high number was partly a result of the Montage Laguna Beach resort being sold twice.

Big hotel deals included the 306-room Hilton Irvine/Orange County Airport hotel, which sold for $80 million, and the 224-room Crowne Plaza Costa Mesa, which went for $37.5 million.

Eleven hotels are scheduled to open next year, according to Atlas.

Kaiser Permamente Facility Topped Out in Baldwin Hills

After eight months of construction, the concrete frame of Kaiser Permamente's new outpatient facility is now complete in Baldwin Hills.

The $90-million project is rising from a roughly 8.6-acre site at the intersection of Marlton Avenue and Santa Rosalia Drive that formerly housed a shopping center. At completion, the four-story building will offer more than 100,000 square feet of space dedicated to diagnositic imaging, family medicine, health education, gynecology, opthamology, optometry, pedatrics, medical labs and a pharmacy.

Downtown Los Angeles hasn't seen this much construction since the 1920s

Downtown Los Angeles is undergoing its largest construction boom in modern times — an explosion juiced by foreign investment that’s adding thousands of residences, construction jobs and a multitude of shops and restaurants.

Since 2010, according to real estate data firm CoStar, 42 developments of at least 50,000 square feet have been built — a figure that includes large adaptive reuse projects such as converting an aging warehouse into new offices. An additional 37 large projects are under construction.

The rapid pace means that by decade’s end, today’s boom should easily surpass the 1980s — a time when developers built office skyscrapers on Bunker Hill as part of an urban renewal effort that flattened the neighborhood’s Victorian mansions in the decades prior.

L.A. Olympic bid report forecasts $11-billion boost for local economy

Every city that wants to host the Olympic Games must include, as part of its bid, an economic impact forecast.

These independent reports, commissioned by the bid committee, usually project a positive outcome, and the one released Monday by LA 2024 is no exception.

The study prepared jointly by UC Riverside and a consulting firm projects that hosting the mega-sporting event would boost local economic output by as much as $11.2 billion and create more than 74,000 full-time jobs.

“This report shows that L.A. is an ideal, low-risk host for the 2024 Games, and that we have the right plan in place to make sure that a winning bid brings a lasting Olympic legacy back to our city,” Mayor Eric Garcetti said in a statement.

Just want to say while it's possible, it's also possible that the city will never be destroyed by an earthquake. Say, the earthquake doesn't happen for another 400 years, by that time most buildings are probably earthquake proof by then. Or even floating in the sky, who knows. My point is that if enough time passes technological progress will come up with a solution.

Los Angeles will be home to George Lucas' $1-billion museum

The suspense has been as epic as “Star Wars,” but after months of intense speculation, George Lucas’ Museum of Narrative Art on Tuesday chose Los Angeles as its home over San Francisco.

The filmmaker’s personal collection of fine and popular art, including ephemera related to his “Star Wars” franchise, will fill a futuristic-looking new museum planned for L.A.’s Exposition Park, which beat out a competing design for Treasure Island in San Francisco Bay. The rivalry had pitted the two cities in the competition not only for Lucas’ collection and the tourism it will bring, but also for the thousands of jobs that backers said the project will create.

“It feels like this incredible gift has come home. I always thought Los Angeles was the natural place to spread the vision of George Lucas and Mellody Hobson, to make art and creativity accessible and inspirational to the next generation,” Mayor Eric Garcetti said of the filmmaker and his wife. “It’s a natural place to have this museum in the creative capital of the world and in the geographic center of the city. It’s a banner day for L.A.”

I'm an SF booster on most days, and thought the Presidio would've been an ideal spot for Lucas' museum (I just had my first visit to Lucasfilm and ILM over the holidays and it blew my mind) but between Treasure Island and Expo Park, the Lucas team made absolutely the right call.

L.A. hopes to boost Olympic bid by agreeing to host cycling event

The 2017 para-cycling track world championships probably won’t get a lot of attention from sports fans or the mainstream media this spring.

But with Los Angeles volunteering as a last-minute host, the Paralympic competition could end up helping the city’s bid for the 2024 Summer Olympics.

“We are conscious that the award of this event comes late in the season for the athletes, teams and parties implicated in the organization of the event,” said Brian Cookson, the international federation’s president. “We would like to thank the U.S. Olympic Committee for organizing this important event in such a short time.”

The USOC issued a statement saying “L.A. is perfectly suited to host an event of this caliber on a tight time frame.”

Sources: Chargers plan to announce move from San Diego to Los Angeles

The Chargers plan to announce as early as Thursday that they are moving to Los Angeles, ending a 55-year stint with San Diego and returning to their birthplace, league sources said Wednesday.

The Chargers played their inaugural season in Los Angeles in 1960 before moving to San Diego in 1961.

The Chargers have notified NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and other league owners of their intent to move to Los Angeles for the 2017 season, sources said.

But as one league source cautioned Wednesday night, Chargers chairman Dean Spanos had yet to send a formal relocation letter to the NFL or notify public officials in Los Angeles or San Diego of the team's move, or even tell the members of the San Diego organization about his plans. The source insisted nothing is final.
