I wish the Double Marriott in downtown would go up as quickly as those Vermont towers have been.

I know they will be downgraded, but still good news.
I hope this happens. !!

As Oscar Wilde would say: When God wishes to punish you, he answers your prayers!

Marriott built 3 unsightly towers in Las Vegas, latest being Springhill Suites (part of Marriott) near the Convention Center. I was so excited seeing this latest one getting built, and then when finished, I wanted to shoot some paint balls at it. And the one at Paradise/Flamingo:

Marriott seems in a rush to build hotels all over the world, some 50? scheduled for Africa, and it's build-it-as-cheaply-as-possible, we need the money to keep expanding and expanding!

But let's hope the one being built downtown has some redeeming qualities to it. With balconies? Oh please!!! That might slow down its completion by a week or 2!!!

Williams & Dame are the developers of this project. Marriott has merely signed on to operate the hotel.

I don't think the architecture is a big deal. It's not ugly, and I wasn't expecting something groundbreaking for a 22 floor mid-priced hotel. I think it will acquit itself much better at night, just like the rest of the LA skyline.

I really like those last two projects, especially the 7530 one. I love the way they treat the solar panels. An artful way to incorporate a very functional feature.

Yeah, those are really cool. I haven't seen those before. They aren't on La Brea, are they?

Depends on what you mean by "anti-car". I sure as hell ain't riding a bike 20 miles to the beach cities.

Then don't. It's just a one day festival. No one is making you do it.


But yeah, I'm excited.

20 miles on a bike is nothing.

Though the 20 miles uphill (granted, barely) to get home might be a little much for the casual biker.

Agreed. Every summer, I bike with a bunch of my friends along the San Gabriel River from Irwindale to Seal Beach, and that's like 30 miles. And I'm not really much of a regular bike rider.

SaMo's Fairmont Miramar Reno Could Include 21-Story Tower



by Neal Broverman

Quote:
The planned redevelopment of the historic Fairmont Miramar Hotel in Santa Monica has morphed--earlier plans called for the renovation and expansion of the hotel, with the Miramar's current 10- and 12-story towers replaced by new 11- and 12-story towers; now the owners want a four-story building, a six-story building, and a 21-story tower with new hotel rooms, condos, and groundfloor retail (both versions will renovate the Miramar's historic Palisades building), reports Santa Monica Patch. MSD Capital LP, the owners, say the Art Deco structure will "barely be visible" from many points in the city and will not restrict too many ocean views. They also argue that the tower doesn't make the project more dense, but simply redistributes the mass. If approved, the 261-foot tower would be Santa Monica's second-tallest. SaMo's vociferous neighborhood groups are massing in resistance, and they'll be joined by Councilmember Kevin McKeown, who previously voted against starting negotiations for the project's development agreement (he was outvoted 1-6).

It's great to see those sections of Hollywood chugging along. No pics on hand, but the SLO development at Melrose just east of Wilton has cleared their site, and is now moving at full steam.
