*PLAYA –NEWS: PLAYA’S LARRY FIELD, DEVELOPER AND FRANK GEHRY ASSOCIATE WHO CHANGED THE L.A. SKYLINE, DIES AT 89

Larry Field, a prominent Los Angeles developer who led the way on converting aging industrial warehouses into creative workspaces, worked repeatedly with architect Frank Gehry and poured his resources into L.A’s cultural institutions, has died at his home in Beverly Hills. Forever tinkering with the city’s skyline, Field was still hard at work when he died Tuesday at age 89. The son of immigrants who grew up stocking shelves in his parent’s tiny grocery store in the Bronx, N.Y., Field arrived in L.A. in 1965 when the city was filling up with new arrivals and homes couldn’t be built fast enough.One of his first projects was a two-block stretch of beaten down storefronts along the Venice boardwalk — 7 1/2 acres in all for $1 million. His first tenant was Gehry. The two became lifelong friends and work associates.“He didn’t know real estate, and I didn’t know architecture,” Field said. “It was perfect. “Years later, Field found a former BMW facility in Playa Vista that had seen better days and the two converted it into Gehry’s new, expanded workspace. It became a model for converting abandoned, often cavernous warehouses and research facilities into airy work environments.
*PLAYA – NEWS: LAKERS OWNER JEANIE BUSS SCORES A BEACHFRONT CONDO IN PLAYA DEL REY

Los Angeles Lakers owner Jeanie Buss just picked up a property near the team’s El Segundo practice facility, shelling out $2.6 million for a coastal condo a few miles up the road in Playa del Rey, records show. Buss isn’t new to the beachfront community. In 2017, she bought a Mediterranean-style estate for roughly $2.45 million and sold it two years later. Her new place is found in The Breakers, a condo development set right on the beach. The $2.6-million sale price is the most ever paid for a home there, according to the listing agent.
