Los Angeles celebrated the
groundbreaking of the $3.5 million L.A. Live complex last week. The
4 million-square-foot project, adjacent to the Staples Center and
the Los Angeles Convention Center, will bring an ESPN Zone, a
theater, and several museums and restaurants to the city's
downtown. A Hilton headquarters hotel with 1,100 rooms will be
built, as well, pending final approval from the city council.
