This project is the second phase of improvements for a comprehensive K-12 learning center at the site of the former Ambassador Hotel in the Mid-Wilshire District of Los Angeles. This project provides 1,000 new middle school seats, 2,440 new high school seats, a public park, restoration of the historic Cocoanut Grove and pylon structures, athletic facilities, and two-thirds of the site-wide methane mitigation system. The Cocoanut Grove will be converted to a 500-seat auditorium, and the restored Paul R. Williams Coffee Shop to be used as the staff/teacher lounge. This phase also provides four of the six commissioned art pieces for the site-wide public art program, commemorating the Ambassador Hotel's cultural and social history. The budget for the K-3 facility is included in the total budget for this project.
