Emerging Hollywood: Building a Better Neighborhood
Emerging Hollywood: Building a Better Neighborhood was the theme of the 2016 Hollywood Economic Development Summit. Presenting sponsor for the summit was Townscape Partners, developers of the planned 8150 Sunset project. A new Hollywood is emerging. Surface parking lots are being replaced with buildings designed by renowned architectural firms. New media, entertainment and technology firms are beginning to move into the community. New residents are calling for a different living experience. We are experiencing record tourism levels from around the world. Speakers at the Hollywood Chamber’s Economic Development Summit 2016 explored how these changes are leading to the creation of a better neighborhood. Panels discussed how design can inform and amplify these positive trends and how the explosive growth in the hospitality sector as world class attractions are driving the development of new hotels and creating new jobs in this important sector for Hollywood.
