Curbed National has photos and details, this way. [Curbed National]

Though it’s been beset with delays, The Broad—the contemporary art museum built by and named for Los Angeles philanthropists Eli and Edythe Broad—will be open sometime in the fall of 2015, it announced today. According to a press release, the building by Diller Scofidio + Renfro will house more than 2,000 pieces (some on display, others in storage) and have free admission, with the exception of the occasional temporary special exhibition.

The $ 140-million museum will be covered in a honeycomb-like “structural exoskeleton” (the cause of that brutal delay in construction) that will allow natural light into the third-level gallery space and be supported by one very important beam. Next to the completed museum will be a 24,000-square-foot outdoor plaza, which will be finished in November of this year, and a fancy restaurant developed by Bill Chait (of Bestia). The new museum will be sandwiched between Disney Hall and the new, ultra-luxurious The Emerson apartments.

Curbed – DevelopmentWatch: Eastern Echo Park Could Get a Gamechanging Mixed-User

October 28th, 2014

2014.10_mwd.jpg

The Elysian luxury apartments opened earlier this year in a handsome old mid-century building on the old Metropolitan Water District campus on Sunset in eastern Echo Park, but the high-class glassiness stood in sharp contrast to the remaining buildings on the property, the unkempt rest of the MWD headquarters, own by a local church since the nineties. Now the Holy Hill Community Church is selling those structures and the 5.3-acre lot for a hearty $ 55 million, says the LA Times. The sale comes as the church is filing for bankruptcy.

The mid-century buildings (as well as The Elysian, which is not for sale) were all designed by prolific architect William Pereira, known for the original buildings at LACMA and many other civic projects around LA (as well as San Francisco’s Transamerica Pyramid and UCSD’s Geisel Library). The property is zoned for up to 576 units, says the broker representing the church, so he feels there’s “a 95% chance it will be housing with a small amount of retail.” This quiet, Chinatown-adjacent area of Echo Park might be heading for a big-time reinvention.
