5 LA developments to be excited about in 2024


1 - LAX's Automated People Mover, and "Airport Connector"

This electric, automated train is designed to shuttle people between the LAX terminals and three stops outside the airport: Metro C Line stop, long-term parking, and a rental car facility. The elevated track is 2.25 miles. Trips are expected to take about ten minutes. LAX is currently electrifying the rails and will begin testing the new train cars this summer, and it's estimated to be completed in 2024.

2 - America's first High-Speed Rail Comes to California

In early December, the Biden administration awarded a combined $6.1 billion to two massive high speed rail projects in California: 1. The California High-Speed Rail Authority, which is already under construction in the Central Valley and will connect the San Francisco Bay Area and LA once complete. 2. Brightline West will connect Southern California and Las Vegas, and is set to break ground in summer 2024.

3 - District NoHo: “a game-changer for the Valley.”

As part of an ongoing Metro effort to build community around transportation hubs, a new mixed-use development dubbed 'District NoHo' is coming to North Hollywood’s Metro station, the third busiest in the city. The 15-acre massive project is the largest joint development in the agency's history, and will include residential units, office, retail/restaurant space, and two acres of open space for the public. Construction is expected to generate $1 billion.

4 - The studio where "Seinfeld" shotis 55-acre site a $1-billion revamp

The Radford Studio Center in Studio City - where "Seinfeld," "Gilligan's Island," and "Will & Grace" shot - is getting a $1-billion revamp. The plan includes 20-25 new soundstages; new production office and support facilities; preservation of historic elements of the studio lot; and a new stretch of the L.A. River bike and pedestrian path.

5 - DTLA Arts District's first high-rise

Dubbed "Alloy," the Arts District's first ever high-rise is part of a collection of buildings that will feature apartments, office space, shops and restaurants. The most prominent element of Alloy is a 35-story, 390-foot-tall tower, which takes the crown of the tallest building in the Arts District.

Honorable Mention - "OttOmate" aka the Tesla Diner

You read that right...Tesla is building a combination diner / charging facility in Hollywood. The diner will be surrounded by a 30-car surface parking lot, each of which would include a charging station. While not depicted in renderings (above), the building permits also indicate plans for a screen at the perimeter of the parking lot, allowing the site to double as a drive-in theater. The new diner is reportedly a prototype for what could be a new form of deluxe Tesla charging stations which, if successful, would be rolled out in other cities across the country.
