Curbed – Cool Map Thing: Watch Los Angeles Explode Into a Megacity in Five Maps

November 24th, 2014

Why Los Angeles, what a big footprint you have! Created using free templates from Esri, makers of the information system considered “the standard for urban data mapping,” this interactive map gives glimpses of Los Angeles at intervals between 1907 and the present, with the growth of LA demonstrated by the red blotches on the map. The maps aren’t perfect—there’s no explanation of why the map suddenly become yellow in the present day view, for example—but still a great way to visualize boom times.

Curbed – Rendering Re-reveal: SaMo’s Expo-Adjacent Denny’s Mixed-User Gets a Reboot

November 23rd, 2014

Since 2012, plans have been knocking around to turn a Denny’s on Lincoln (right by the end of the Expo Line extension) into a mixed-user, but when designs first made their way through the city approval’s process, the response from SaMo officials was underwhelming. They seem fairly happy with the latest round of designs, which nearly doubles the open space of the original plans and apparently gets rid of that weird wire cone from the old design, says the Santa Monica Lookout.

New elements of project now include a large interior courtyard and paseo in the development, plus wider sidewalks along the street.
The 100-unit, five-story building’s got a bit more commercial space now (13,000 square feet instead of 10,000) and might include 10 units of housing for tenants with a very low income, as well as 10 units for moderate income households. (The proposal from developers NMS Properties doesn’t meet some zoning requirements, and thus, they’ve got to bargain with the city and offer “community benefits” in exchange for the ability to build.) City officials still said that there was too much parking—221 spaces in an underground garage—which is a valid complaint considering how close to the new rail line the development will be. The SaMo Planning Commission will have a hearing before making a decision on the design. It’s just one of the many new developments in the area in preparation for the Expo Line’s extension opening up.

Curbed – that’s rather hideous: Marble-ous Mulholland Drive Mansion Boldly Asks $22MM

November 23rd, 2014

marble%20header.jpg

Bestriding like a Colossus the border of Bel Air and Beverly Crest (the LA Times says it’s Bev Crest), this Mulholland Drive mansion was built in 1993, and not-too-coincidentally, is quite a monument to ’90s excess, as the matching pair of Sea-Doos parked outside subtly hint. Per the listing copy, the 2.1-acre estate contains a 9,500-square-foot main house with seven bedrooms, twelve baths, an elevator, a home theater/office, and more marble and candelabras than Liberace could shake a bejeweled scepter at.

There’s also a “professional style basketball court,” which seems like it could double as a helipad, “ponds, fountains, European-style verandas, swimming pool, spa”—don’t miss the fake-swan planters encircling it—”and much more.” Asking price is $ 22 million.
