Olson, vice president and director of sales. f vWyl'lHifc BY DICK TURPIN x TimM Real Estate Mtor . The looking glass of city planners, dreamers, architects and financiers seems to indicate a continuing westward and southward movement for the business hub of Los Angeles. Elsewhere in this section, architect Charles Luckman predicts the evolution of a whole new business area in the vicinity of the planned convention and exhibit center at Pico Blvd. and Figueroa St That kind of development In the offing would follow the existing and marked trend away from the traditional Spring St. business heart of the city to Wilshlre Blvd., the main artery of new growth. Construction of the Occidental Center, the California Mart and the United California Bank Building are the few major, new downtown developments in recent years. Irene Westward Explained Architects Robert Langdon and Ernest Wilson, who in the past 10 years have designed 17 buildings on Wilshire Blvd. of which 10 are over eight stories in height, cite reasons for the trend westward. Footage in Los Angeles has become increasingly difficult to assemble into a suitable site for high-rise office buildings. Piecemeal acquisition i3 the order of the day, they contend, while on Wilshire, intact land parcels are larger and demolition problems are smaller. Cost of land in the central city is higher than that along Wilshire, with downtown land currently selling from $60 to $70 a square foot ($9,000 to $10,000 a frontage foot) compared with $27 to $30 a square foot ($4,000 to $4,500 a frontage foot) on Wilshire, the architects said. . .... "Land costs are obviously on the rise on Wilshire, the records indicating a $10 to $11 increase per square foot during the past five years. But the cost differential remains," they add. Lesser Assessed Valuation The lower. cost of Wilshire Blvd. land naturally Involves a lesser assessed valuation, hence , lower taxation, they said, and this inherent tax ' advantage invites corporate attention. The Langdon-Wilson thinking deems the central city as confined with little or no open space to offer in an area of long established urban density. On the other hand, the Wilshire sector has maintained its spaciousness, they point out. - "This is an appealing factor to the corporate body wanting to stretch its legs the western look." The trend to high-rise complexes and landscaped malls along Wilshire adds another incentive to the corporate move. The architect is challenged to exercise his art in providing a "people" environment for businesses seeking escape from the metropolitan confinement. Off-Street Parking Each new high-rise appearance on the Wilshire scene draws attention to the contrasting environments and gives impetus to the trend, they believe. Another factor is off-street parking. Buildings on Wilshire constructed during the last decade have been required to provide it in the ratio of one space for every 500 square feet of structure. Downtown, the ratio remains at one car space for every 1,000 square feet of building. In a car-oriented city, such advantages are obvious. The architects, looking ahead, predict that if a Wilshire rapid transit route is completed, population in business and adjacent multiple dwelling unit areas is certain to triple. This will inevitably draw additional, refined commercial activity. As the value of Wilshire area land increases, higher high-rise will follow but the already established pattern of landscaped plazas and air space between buildings should continue. Finally, the architects declare that Wilshire Blvd. has established an identity all its own and should be architecturally contrasted, not compared, with the world's historic thoroughfares. :They think the boulevard's identity or personality is bound to achieve much greater recognition. fc; Hipp JXumm....-- i fee;--' a L ' .
