  1. How will Korea fare in the summer Olympics?

  2. Astani Enterprises has sold a three-acre, 130,000-square-foot parcel downtown for $63 million to a buyer recorded on the deed of sale as CPIVG8 LLC. The sale price was approximately $500 per square foot, which is a record amount for a land sale of its size in downtown.

    The site, which is currently being used as a parking lot, comprises almost an entire city block between Seventh and Eighth streets and between Grand and Olive (with the exception of Brockman Lofts). As part of the sale, the buyer will receive Astani’s entitlements and designs to construct what will eventually become a 700-unit steel and glass, Type 1 low-rise apartment building with a rooftop pool. The complex will include almost an acre of open space, plus high-end amenities including a screening room, lounge and spa for its 1,000 occupants, and 36,000 square feet of retail space—large enough for a national grocery store. Astani founder and chairman Sonny Astani tells that construction costs for the entitled properties will be $180 million and that the valuation of the project upon completion will be $300 million.

  3. There is a place called Koreatown?

    Interesting. Sounds like good numbers for investors in Multi units

  4. Park Catalina, a class A apartment community at 690 S. Catalina St. in the Los Angeles submarket of Koreatown, has changed hands for $23.65 million. The buyer is Essex Property Trust.

  5. 20- and 30-somethings are drawn to urban, walkable areas that reflect their lifestyles. Gen Y renters are extremely connected to the Web and social media, which gives them different habits and influences when they make consumer choices.

  6. Mostly these are the Millennials – adults roughly 20 to 34-years-old, also known as Generation Y or the Echo Boom – who have delayed childbearing, marriage, and even household formation because of a combination of changing culture and economic necessity. Urban living makes sense for these young people: compared with suburbs, cities often provide young adults more opportunities to switch jobs, meet friends and potential spouses, enjoy entertainment outside their homes, live without a car, and travel to other parts of the country and world.

    One of the most interesting questions for cities in the next 10 to 20 years is how many Millennials will stay there. The last time this big a generation of young people started reaching their late 20s was the Baby Boomers in the early 1970s. Is that transition a good point of reference for the Millennials? Many signs point to no.
