Finally, Downtown might get a Hooters. Anschutz Entertainment Group, developer of Staples Center and now London's Millennium Dome, will break ground on the LA Live complex on September 15. The $1 billion project near the Convention Center is expected to include a 7000-seat performance space, a mega movie-plex, restaurants, bars, and a shiny, stacked Hilton. Not Paris, but rather a 1200 room, 50-story luxury hotel.
We expect the entertainment complex adjacent to Staples Center will feature an impressive concentration of waitresses with hotpants and half-shirts. Curly fries, anyone?
