Via Curbed LA, we hear about the former headquarters for a secret military film unit in the Lookout Mountain area that was profiled in the New York Times yesterday.  Curbed points out that it also went on the real estate market in the last week, with the asking price of $6.3 million, way up from the previous selling price of just $750,000 in 1994.

The New York Times writes, “Electrified wire ringed their headquarters in the Hollywood Hills. The inconspicuous building, on Wonderland Avenue in Laurel Canyon, had a sound stage, screening rooms, processing labs, animation gear, film vaults and a staff of more than 250 producers, directors and cameramen — all with top-secret clearances.”

The property is located on infamous Wonderland Avenue in Laurel Canyon.

A video conversation with the reporter who wrote the story is below. Check out the property in more detail at Curbed LA, or read the full story at the New York Times with the fascinating history.

Kylie Jenner Buys $36.5 Million Holmby Hills Estate

LOS ANGELES (TMZ) — Kylie Jenner has just expanded her empire … because TMZ has learned she just bought a massive, new estate in one of the best areas of L.A., with a price tag of $36.5 million.

It’s an interesting move because Kylie’s become something of a land baroness in Calabasas, but this is miles away in the heart of L.A. — Holmby Hills.

The house is 15,350-square-feet and it’s billed as a resort compound. It’s a single-story, modern compound with a dedicated guardhouse. The house has a chef’s kitchen, an outdoor projection screen, home theatre, bars and game rooms, a gym and a championship-level sports court with pickleball/basketball.

The house also has 2 guest apartments, so she’s got ya, Stassi.

Kylie negotiated well … the house was listed at $45 mil.

The seller has a connection to Kylie. He also sold her land in the Palm Springs area where she’s building a home.

LA Hotels Volunteer More Than 27,000 Rooms for COVID-19 Response

Published

LOS ANGELES — More than 270 Los Angeles hotels have volunteered 27,819 rooms to the County Department of Public Health and other agencies as temporary shelter to support the region’s COVID-19 response, the Hotel Association of Los Angeles announced today.

This unprecedented response represents about 35 percent of all Los Angeles hotel rooms now available to protect and isolate population segments vulnerable to the coronavirus outbreak. In the past three weeks, available hotel numbers have grown exponentially from an initial 10,000 rooms being available on March 27.

“Every day we’re seeing the number of available rooms increase as hotels respond to the request from public health officials to provide temporary shelter during this pandemic,” said Heather Rozman, Executive Director of the Hotel Association of Los Angeles. “This is definitely not business as usual. Now that the various levels of government are working together, the contracting process to actually get rooms online should be speeding up.”

Throughout California more than 1,100 hotels have volunteered almost 145,000 rooms since Gov. Newsom declared a State of Emergency on March 4. California Hotel and Lodging Association, HALA and their members have worked with a multitude of government departments and agencies to identify hotels that could help municipalities respond to the COVID-19 outbreak.

“By working closely with Gov. Newsom and California’s public health leadership, our hotels have responded when they are most needed,’’ said Lynn S. Mohrfeld, President and CEO of the California Hotel and Lodging Association. “This is a critical time for our hotels to demonstrate their commitment to their communities and to our state’s well-being.”

Los Angeles hotel rooms provide shelter for COVID-19 isolation, people experiencing homelessness, victims of domestic violence, elderly populations, and medical personnel fulfilling needs that are determined by public health officials.
