Great pictures, thanks for the new update! Expected completion date (for now) is summer 2014?
It's just a matter of time.I hope they build more along Francisco
based on the renderings i believe the aproximate height will be around 105 metersI still can't get over how the building is very comparable in height to the Ritz wing. If we can get the height on that, we have the general height of the Marriott.
there better be something at least.. i hate that empty glass wall between yard house and the movie theatre. even with all this development going on, that hotel kills the pedestrian activity that most of us would like to see.It looks like that corner place is going to be a coffee shop or restaurant. If so, looks great.
These pictures show how huge the area around LA Live could actually be in the coming years. In 2020, this entire area will have dramatically changed.Construction has begun on the new Marriott across from LA Live.
Here is a few screenshots from street view.
And here is when I got a good view from LA Live.
By the time I left, there were 2 more tractors on site. I wasn't able to get a picture of them, I just saw them as I drove back home.
I will do the best I can to keep you guys posted on updates!
The tax break they are looking for is needed when the Hotel actually opens. The Occupancy Tax is charged to each room per night its used. I thinks its 5% of the room rate. they want a refund on part of the tax to "boost" profits. Complete greed I think which will not be needed. "I want what he has" mentality. referring to the Wilshire Grand project.So now the developer says they "rethink" the project unless the city gives them 67M? Sounds a little odd when they already have loans and permits in place and have started building. I would guess that the city council has already informally agreed to this but didn't want to tell the public until work was in progress.
I would be looking for more of this sort of thing on the football stadium/convention center re-do.
Informally, of course. You go around and talk to the members and get their buy-in by whatever means you think are appropriate. Then there are no surprises at the formal meeting.But wouldn't the City Council if they've agreed to this have this on record? In the minutes? Perhaps I'm missing something but to get 15 or so members to agree on a development downtown seeing how fractured LA naturally is, is sort of impossible isn't it?
