Frank Gehry-designed complex for downtown L.A. to be unveiled

Quote:
Renowned architect Frank Gehry may get another chance to reimagine the downtown Los Angeles skyline, with county officials poised on Tuesday to consider his design for a residential, hotel and retail complex across the street from his Walt Disney Concert Hall.

The Board of Supervisors will get its first look at his plans for a $750-million piece of the Grand Avenue Project called Parcel Q on Bunker Hill. If they approve it, and the Grand Avenue Joint Powers Authority — composed of city and county officials — also signs off Jan. 20, then project will advance to the environmental review phase.

L.A. county spokesman David Sommers said the design is by no means final.“Not at all,” he said. “This is an opportunity for the supervisors to review and approve the conceptual plans, which is a necessary step for the project.”

The developer, The Related Companies, put Gehry in charge after the Authority in September rejected the original design for Parcel Q by Gensler and Robert A.M. Stern Architects as uninspired.

Supervisor Gloria Molina and county CEO William Fujioka criticized the original design for being “boxy” and “fort-like,” and said it would not stack up well against the nearby Disney hall designed by Gehry or the Broad Museum, which will feature a unique honeycomb façade when completed later this year.

The new design for the parcel includes a 37-story residential tower on Second Street between Grand Avenue and Olive Street, and a 300-room hotel/residential tower on the corner of Grand Avenue and First Street. The visual look of the buildings resembles boxes of presents stacked under a Christmas tree.

Frank Gehry's Big New Grand Ave. Plans Get Their First Approval



Quote:
For more than a decade, the huge, multi-use Grand Avenue Project has been stuck in the fetal stages (except for one lone tower). But now things have finally started to move on the hugely ambitious plan to put residential, retail, hotel, and public space on Parcel Q, across Grand from Disney Hall. That got moving again last year when starchitect Frank Gehry, who designed the original plan, was taken off the project and the new plans (from Gensler and Robert AM Stern) were very firmly rejected by the LA County Supervisors (the word "uninspired" was used.) After that, Gehry was pulled back in to save the day and boy, did he ever. People have been calling the latest plans the best yet and the supes officially agreed today, with nothing but good things to say when they signed off on Gehry's designs today. They called them "exactly what we need" and proclaimed that this design will shake up the street in the best way possible, according to the LA Times. The County Supervisors' approval means that there's just a couple more steps (approval from the Grand Avenue Joint Powers Authority next week and a renewed development agreement by January 21) before the $750-million complex can get into the environmental review phase, one of the most significant hurdles on the ever-lengthening road to completion.


























Quote:
The most recent designs show two high-rise towers—a 37-story residential tower (with a twenty-eighth-floor skydeck and pool!) on the corner of Second and Olive and a 25-story SLS hotel/office building closer to First Street—plus a pedestrian-inviting public plaza, all arranged like "boxes of presents stacked under a Christmas tree."

When the concept for this plan was introduced, almost a decade ago, i recall the sentance, ''Something iconic for Los Angeles''.

I'm sorry to say that i find nothing ''iconic'' about this latest, or for that matter any previous proposals for this project, If approved, i see this as a complete waste of prime downtown building sites.

The uneven windows make it look like a 5 year old designed that building.

Related Companies ready to pour $2 billion into this project: http://therealdeal.com/blog/2014/09/...b-development/

Quote:
California, here we come.

New York-based Related Companies — one of the biggest developers in both the city and the country — is planning a $6.5 billion project in Santa Clara, Calif. Related’s proposal — 8 million square feet of offices, retail space, hotels and apartments — will have to go through an environmental review, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Related is also planning to construct two skyscrapers in San Francisco. Ground will not be broken on those towers until 2016, according to the Wall Street Journal. In Los Angeles, the real estate company is looking to build a $2 billion mixed-use project.

Falling out

Related Cos. Cuts Ties With SBE for Downtown L.A. Project

Quote:
(Bloomberg) -- Billionaire Stephen Ross’s Related Cos. cut ties with SBE Entertainment Group LLC for its Grand Avenue project in downtown Los Angeles.

The New York-based firm had formed a joint venture with SBE to restart plans for a $650 million-to-$700 million complex with entertainment, shopping, apartments, condominiums and a luxury hotel, William Witte, president of Related’s California division, said last April. Los Angeles-based SBE, headed by Sam Nazarian, had planned a 300-room SLS hotel at the site.

“We made the decision not to move forward with SBE in early January and shared that with city and county representatives at that time,” Witte said in an e-mailed statement Friday, without giving a reason for the change. Related is seeking a replacement luxury-hotel operator, he said. “We are actively engaged in discussions with a number of these hotel brands and operators and have gained significant traction with a number of them.”

SBE is "looking Into all legal options".
If SBE pursues litigation this one could be dragged out in the courts for months....

Related locks down City Council approval for Grand Avenue Project, names Chinese investor



Quote:
The Los Angeles City Council greenlighted Related Companies’ Grand Avenue project Wednesday, marking the last in a long line of approvals the company needs to move forward.
Over the last three weeks, the massive Downtown project — more than 10 years in the works — received approvals from the L.A. Grand Avenue Authority, the County of L.A. and the successor agency to the now-defunct Community Redevelopment Agency of L.A.
Related also announced Wednesday a joint venture partnership with Chinese real estate firm, CCCG Overseas Real Estate (CORE), a subsidiary of China Communications Construction Company.
CORE will funnel $290 million into the next phase of the project. This will be CORE’s first real estate investment in the U.S., its president Ren Hongpeng said.
Known as Parcel Q, the two-tower project will break ground in 2018 and is slated for completion in 2022. It will include an Equinox hotel as well as a 38-story residential complex with 429 units and retail space. Approximately 20 percent of the new residences will be affordable, according to the Related announcement.
Related’s budget for the project has risen from $750 million to $950 million, according to amended plans revealed by the L.A. County’s Chief Executive Office.
The project is also subject to living wage and local hiring policies, and must remain neutral if hotel workers want to unionize in the future. Related estimates that Parcel Q will bring more than 10,000 new jobs and $570 million in revenue to L.A. over the next 25 years.
