Awesome. That Expo line corridor is developing into a solid employment area.

So Google, Apple and Netflix have signed leases for about 2 - 2.5 million sq ft in LA over the last couple months without LA having to sell its soul to the devil. Great news!

Same thing with LA going from 0 NFL teams to 2 with no public money or subsidies. If only we could figure out our housing and transportation crisis.

This expo line corridor is turning into a housing and job creation zone.

That whole part of LA county--West LA/ South Santa Monica, Culver City, Playa Vista, Westchester, LAX, El Segundo, Hawthorne, is doing great right now.

^^^ don't forget Long Beach lol its new tallest is currently under construction.

Also. Am i the only one underwhelmed with the 28 by 28 plan ? The expo line showing how rail lines can change the areas around it, you would expect metro to be coming it with all kinds of new routes for the future instead of thinking of one line (Sepulveda line) and dwelling over that one line for an entire decade before thinking of the next project. The west side needs a Lincoln line to connect the beaches with the Airport and further south. But lets just focus on one line at a time apparently.

I'm a little disappointed Westside Pavilion redevelopment will not include any housing. Tear down that crazy badly designed parking structure and build some condos! There is plenty of existing underground parking on the west side of Westwood to support the intended Google and retail use.

But as is, it is a good adaptive reuse of the building. I guess the parking structure demolishing can wait... eventually it will happen I think.

Also, Amazon is taking 500K sqft in Culver city, which seems to be taking the spotlight from arts district in terms of where cool things are now happening.

Facebook announced it's taking 260K in Playa Vista in the Maltzan-designed building. Los Angeles may be the only city where every single one of the FAANG companies have expanded to in this recent wave of expansions that have been announced in the last couple months, even as all the tech hype and write-ups is about NYC. Who needs HQ2?

Because of the presence of a few major companies? Really?

It's still DTLA by a wide margin as far as culture, food, and retail are concerned.

Wow. Culver City has turned into a real economic force to be reckoned with. Seems to me that the Expo Line has been the catalyst for all this. Shows what can happen when a city embraces rail transit in lieu of resisting it.

^^^ And I wish the City/County/Region would see this and the possibilities. There is no reason why rail line cant be spread all over the county. The bogus reports/studies that metro gives for their reasoning behind why some lines wont be "feasible" or why they "wont work" just makes me want to scream. But somehow the WSAB makes the cut and the endless extension of the foothill line makes sense while denser corridors "Wont make sense". Annoying.

Crazy because I lived in this hotel for 2 years from 2010-12. Even then I knew that it would be only a matter of time before it would change from a SRO into something better.

Century City and the Wilshire Corridor from Kenneth Hahn on Saturday. If you look closely enough, you can see the cranes for the Century Towers between Fox Plaza and 10250 Constellation.

That's largely because all the recent FAANG expansions are all driven by their respective media strategies. Instead of buying an existing studio, FAANG are going to now spending stupid money trying to reinvent the proverbial wheel of making TV shows and movie.

So LA expansion is not a coincidence... this is where the talent lives whom FAANG wants to hire. And I'm not talking about actors, writers, or directors. I'm talking about production people, accountants and lawyers who know how to do entertainment deals, and people who work in distribution. They all live in LA and no one wants to move to Seattle or San Jose.

The one project in all of LA that I felt from the start was a pipe dream. Pleasantly surprised its still going.
