Warner Bros. Breaks Ground On Frank Gehry-Designed “Iceberg” Office Towers

California Governor Gavin Newson joined architect Frank Gehry, Warner Bros. Chair and CEO Ann Sarnoff, developer Jeff Worthe and Burbank Mayor Sharon Springer at the official groundbreaking of the Second Century Project, a Warner Bros. Studios expansion featuring two Gehry-designed office towers known as the “icebergs,” on Tuesday, January 14.

“These incredible new buildings will combine state-of-the-art technology with a dynamic work environment and allow us to reimagine not only our workspace but our future,” said Sarnoff. “Along with our historic lot, this newly expanded campus will fuel increased creativity, facilitate collaboration and help us attract and retain the world’s best and most diverse talent.”

Second Century Project. (Photo By Ross Benson)

“This is an investment in our employees, our creative and business partners and the Burbank community,” Sarnoff added.

“This is a project that shows confidence in our future,” commented Newsom, speaking to the positive economic impact of the project. “This is a big deal, not just for Burbank or the region, but for the entire state.”

Announced in April 2019, the Second Century Project, as the expansion is called, alludes to the beginning of Warner Bros. second century in business. The expansion is due to be completed in 2023, to coincide with the year of Warner Bros.’ centennial celebration.

“Warner Bros. is a legendary company and we needed to create a legendary building for them,” commented Gehry.

The two new office buildings are designed to look like icebergs floating along the 134 Freeway, as Gehry described during the April 2019 project announcement. The office complex will feature two towers, one at seven stories and 355,00o square feet of office space and the other at nine stories and 455,000 square feet of office space and be LEED Certified.

“In the Media Capital of the World, Warner Bros.’ commitment to this project is also a commitment to Burbank, reinforcing our relationship that goes back more than 90 years,” said Springer. “The creativity of Mr. Gehry’s architecture along with Warner Bros. desire to build something genuinely unique and Mr. Worthe’s commitment to construct it, further proves that yes, Burbank is a World Class City.”

The full Burbank City Council, including Bob Frutos, Jess Talamantes, Emily Gabel-Luddy and Tim Murphy, were also on hand for the groundbreaking ceremony.

“We’re creating something pretty unique and pretty special,” added Worthe. “Almost 4000 Warner Bros. employees [will] work here. We’re trying to do something to make their lives better.”

With the groundbreaking now official, the construction of the Second Century project takes place in two phases. Occupancy of Phase I is expected in 2022 and Phase II occupancy will coincide with Warner Bros.’ centennial celebration in 2023.

Burbank Baseball Caps Regular Season With 10-3 Win Over Burroughs

By Rick Assad


Because of proximity and history, any time Burbank High and Burroughs face each other in athletic competition, something is always at stake.

On Friday night at Tomahawk Field, the stakes were raised even higher because if the Bulldogs captured this Pacific League baseball encounter, they had a chance to pull even with Crescenta Valley for second place behind first place Arcadia.

But if the Indians prevailed, they would be tied with Muir at 8-6 and have a chance for the postseason.

In a game that lasted almost three hours and saw nine total pitchers employed and eight combined errors committed, Burbank walked away with a 10-3 victory.

With the triumph over their longtime rival, the Bulldogs are 10-4 in league, tied with the Falcons while the Indians posted a 7-7 mark, one game behind the Mustangs, and are out of the CIF Southern Section playoffs which begin next week.

For the seniors who win, there is always extreme joy and happiness, while for the losers there is only pain and sadness.

“Tough preseason for us. We played the monsters. But it seemed to kind of work in our favor,” said Burbank coach Bob Hart, whose team went 8-3 down the stretch. “I liked the resiliency. I like the fact that they were in every game. I had juniors wanting to give at-bats for the seniors. Ultimately that’s a testament to their character and that’s probably what I’m most proud of. I love to see guys who are selfless. We’ve got a bunch of those guys. I’m probably more proud of that than the score.”

Craig Sherwood, who has coached baseball for 39 years and has also won a CIF championship, knows the other side.

“Sixteen seniors,” he said. “All I did was get those kids into the ballgame tonight. Hopefully we would do well and we just didn’t do well. The ball didn’t bounce our way.”

Sherwood went on: “I’m proud of all my players,” he said. “Every single one of them. The toughest part is you’re a family. You spend 10 months together. Then suddenly it’s gone after the third out is made. It’s tough. It’s emotional.”

Neither team scored in the first inning, but the Bulldogs (10-12-1), who scored three runs in the third and fourth inning, struck for two runs in the second as junior Jakob Duarte’s double into the left field corner scored junior Troy Lee, who walked to begin the frame.

Duarte then advanced to third base on a passed ball and eventually crossed the plate on an error.

The Indians (10-19), who committed four miscues, evened it at 2-2 in the second frame when senior Nicco Chuidian was hit by a pitch that nipped his nose, went to third on a double to right field by senior Preston Lemus and scored on a wild pitch.

Lemus took third base on a wild pitch and scored on a single from junior Brian Garcia, who also doubled to left center in the sixth inning.

Chuidian was the starting hurler and allowed one hit, striking out one with three walks across two frames.

“It hurts. It really does,” said the right-hander. “Coming into this season and having our heads high and expecting to win. Having that high note. Having that high goal. That expectation.”

Chuidian added: “My team. We’ve been through it all. We’ve been through countless walkoffs. Countless wins. Countless losses. We’ve been together,” he said.

Was there a point that changed the season?

“I wouldn’t say there was a tipping point, per se,” he noted. “But it would seem that after Pasadena, that loss, really got to us. From there we got on a consistent losing streak.”

Chuidian, who will attend Cal State Fullerton, but not play baseball, went on: “We came out and gave it our all. I am glad that I was able to play with this team,” he said. “This team has been battling with me for over three years It’s been a blessing to play for these coaches and be part of this family.”

After that 6-1 setback to Pasadena at home on March 29, the Indians went 2-7 that included a 3-2 loss in eight innings to Burbank on Tuesday.

Burbank, which also turned in four errors, made it 5-2 in the third inning as senior Daniel Ruiz lashed a run-scoring double to left field that brought in sophomore Ryan King, who led off with a base hit to right field.

Lee’s single to right field plated senior Davis Mieliwocki, who walked and a sacrifice fly to left by junior Dominik Severo brought home Lee.

Mieliwocki toured five innings and was credited with the win after surrendering three hits, fanning nine, walking four and hitting two batters.

Senior Joey Clark entered in the sixth inning and struck out three and allowed two hits over two frames.

A three-run fourth was helped because of three errors by the Indians as Burbank, which didn’t get a hit in the frame, extended its lead to 8-2.

Junior Oaklee Spens walked and scored, King was nicked by a pitch and scored and Mielowicki, who reached on a two-base fielding error, also crossed the plate.

Burbank tacked on two runs in the fifth inning when it rapped out four hits including a run-scoring single by Mieliwocki that drove in junior Aidan Gonzalez, who singled to left field.

The other run scored via a walk to Lee with the bases filled as Spens, who singled to left field, scored.

A run in the sixth sliced Burbank’s lead to 10-3 as senior Jesse Rodriguez, who was safe at third base on a throwing error, scored on senior Andres Salazar’s grounder.

Senior Julian Jaramillo singled in the third and seventh inning for the Indians and senior Cody Winters doubled off the fence in the fifth for the Bulldogs.

Senior Nathaniel Metz took the loss and didn’t retire a batter, yielding one hit with one walk.

Senior Xavier Dubon went one inning, striking out one and allowing two hits and senior Josh Hooker hit two batters, issued one walk and whiffed one over one inning.

Senior Brandon Aguilar failed to retire a batter and allowed one hit, Jaramillo gave up three hits, struck out two with one walk in one inning and Salazar fanned three with one walk in two innings.

UPDATED: LA Kings Acquire Pickwick Ice, Plans for $1 Million Renovation

Correction: We earlier reported that all of Pickwick Gardens was sold.  Updated reports say only the Pickwick Ice Center has been purchased.

After many rumors regarding the future of Pickwick Ice, the Los Angeles Kings and American Sports Entertainment Co. announced on Thursday, December 20, that they have acquired ownership of the ice rink, with plans for a $1 million renovation.

(Photo by Ross A. Benson)

The deal involves a long-term partnership with Ron Stavert, CEO of Pickwick Gardens, who has owned the popular ice rink with his family for over 60 years, starting in 1961.

Mayor Emily Gabel-Luddy, who is also a part of the Rancho community, believes the planned upgrades will secure Pickwick’s future.

“I am thrilled to hear about a new partnership between the Stavert Family and the LA Kings, our world class professional hockey team. Pickwick will remain a significant commercial recreational venue,” said Mayor Gabel-Luddy.

“Luc Robitaille (former player for the LA Kings, current president), whom I recently heard speak about the Kings South Bay Training Facility, is making a strategic and welcome investment in the San Fernando Valley and right here in Burbank. I am ready to put on my Golden Bears jersey!”

Today’s announcement of the acquisition included that the rink will be renamed “LA Kings Ice,” with remodeling causing the facility to temporarily close its doors in June.

During the closure, ASEC will be in charge of a three part renovation project, costing $1 million to improve equipment and conduct maintenance.

ASEC is the largest owner and operator of ice rinks and other indoor athletic facilities throughout the country. They currently operate 21 facilities throughout North Carolina, New York, Texas, Arizona, and in California, where they own the Toyota Sports Center in Los Angeles.

In October 2016, the fate of Pickwick Gardens was uncertain as rumors circulated that the facilities were in jeopardy since the maintenance costs for the property increased, causing profits to rapidly decline. Although the Stavert family was not interested in selling Pickwick Gardens, which also includes a bowling alley and a banquet hall, they turned to the city for suggestions.

In September 2017, a plan to demolish the buildings to be turned into housing was brought before residents at a City Council meeting, which was met with controversy in an eruption of “boos.”

Over the years, Pickwick Ice has been a staple in the Burbank community, serving as a home to the California Golden Bears youth hockey club, Los Angeles Figure Skating Club, several hockey teams, and countless birthday parties.

Burbank Neighborhood Named One Of Top Ten “Nicest Places”

A Burbank neighborhood was named one of the top ten “Nicest Places” in the country by Reader’s Digest this week as announced on “Good Morning America.” Ashley Erikson, who lives on North Evergreen Street and is a local community organizer, saw the contest a few weeks ago online and decided to nominate her neighborhood.

The neighbors of North Evergreen have a private Facebook group of a few hundred people living along the 1400-1900 blocks of North Maple, Pass, Evergreen, Rose and Valley. The admins of the group, Rachel Diana, and Erin Viera-Orr, created the page in order to connect neighbors, build a stronger community and to improve the quality of life for those who live on or directly nearby North Evergreen Street. 

Erikson nominated the group on the Reader’s Digest website and contributed multiple stories of kindness and community including sharing produce and fresh eggs between neighbors, holding community events for the kids, spending holidays together, lending a helping hand, volunteering on each other’s projects, raising their kids together and loving each other as a family would.

Reader’s Digest called them “a local sustainable neighborhood in the heart of the media capital of the world.”

As a top 10 finalist, North Evergreen Street will be featured in the November issue of Reader’s Digest, with the first place finisher featured on the cover. The neighborhood is now rallying forces to vote North Evergreen into first place, which will also include a feature on “Good Morning America.”  Individuals can vote once per day until July 7 when voting closes.

The neighbors are very excited about this opportunity and the media coverage it has brought to their neighborhood.

Erikson says,“It is just my way to say thank you to all my neighbors for being so loving and giving.  I wanted to them to know how much I appreciated them and that what we have on Evergreen is special.”

Burbank Chamber of Commerce Hosts State of the City

(Photo by © Ross A. Benson)

On Wednesday, October 25th, the Burbank Chamber of Commerce hosted the State of the City. City council was present at the event, along with Mayor Will Rogers. The event was the largest of its kind, with over 520 people in attendance.

The event discussed Burbank’s accomplishments through the last few decades, with a focus on the accomplishments made within this last year. While speaking, Mayor Will Rogers described Burbank as a “city of dreamers.” Today, Burbank is called home by 12,400 creative businesses, 33,430 creative employees, and 152,600 in the workforce population.

Mayor Rogers also highlighted Hollywood-Burbank Aiport’s new terminal, the Burbank Pass program, and the recently approved First Street Village Mixed-Use Project. With new developments, and new businesses on the way, the city of Burbank is set to retain the title of “Media Capital of the World.”

Continuing with his speech, Mayor Rogers insisted at Burbank’s healthcare sector is “robust” and that the state of our economy is “strong.”

After the event, I asked Mayor Rogers for an update on the incoming budget deficit. Mayor Rogers explained that “the deficit we’re facing is not from overspending or anything of that kind, it’s coming out of the middle of the 1990’s. There are, I think, two, possibly three, much less painful alternatives to making any cuts. We have not done a good job at making those alternatives public…we’ve talked about them but have not given them nearly as much attention.”

Mayor Rogers went on to say that “ultimately, it’s going to be the people making the choice” in regards to how the budget deficit solution will play out. However, Mayor Rogers noted that the people in Burbank will have all of the options available and that the community will pick one or two solutions when the time comes. Mayor Rogers also assured that none of the solutions involve closing parks, youth sports, libraries, or anything that he described as a “dystopic future” during the first budget meeting.

If you’re interested, below are some of the new businesses opening in Burbank in the very near future:

  • Chick-Fil-A
  • H&M
  • Shoe Palace
  • Target Express
  • Naimie’s Beauty Center
  • Touchstone Climbing
  • World Market
  • Whole Foods Market

This week, we talked to Jesse Clark of Universal Service Station, located at 2005 N Glenoaks Blvd. Universal Service Station acts as a gas station, convenience store, car wash, concierge services, and an auto-repair shop.

Without further ado, let’s get to know Jesse!

How long have you been operating in Burbank?

The mechanic and gas station have been open since 2011. We took ownership in early 2011 and shut it down for remodeling and getting it up to code. We reopened in late 2011. 

What drew you and your business to Burbank? 

I kinda fell into it and took a liking to it. I was on the westside for so long, ended up in Burbank in a roundabout way and made it my home. Burbank is such a different world. That’s what attracts me

 to the city. And safety. I’m raising a little girl and I’d rather her be here than in Venice. 

We’ve made the city sort of our own community here. A lot of the people I know I’ve gotten to know over the years. It’s cool to walk around Burbank and hear, “Hey! It’s Gas Station Guy!”

Speaking of the people, what’s your favorite thing about the city and/or its people?

The city is warm. I mean, to put it like that, there’s warm and cold to me. In Venice and in the westside, it was just so populated and so busy. This is a little slower paced and warmer people. You get the time to know them instead of a rush-rush. Since I’m here all the time, I’ve gotten the luxury of meeting a lot of cool people from here. And there are a lot of cool people in Burbank. 

How difficult would say owning a small business in Burbank is? 

It’s my first business venture. Everyday is a challenge. It’s always evolving, and if I don’t figure out ways to evolve, then we fall behind, and I don’t want to do that. We have added, and will continue to add different services, which is also fun. It’s a learning process, a growing process, and a catering process because I like to cater to my clients. 

What did you do before this? 

I managed a Jaguar, BMW, Landrover Auto-Repair Shop for many years. I was a service-advisor, manager, car washer, parts order – just everything. Every hat, I wore it. I still do that because it’s just in my nature. 

Does you past experience make this position a little more appealing? You’re essentially doing the same things, but now its your own.

Well it is my own. And it’s not just my own. It’s our family business. My wife, my sister-in-law, my step-son, my nephews, everyone is a help and a contributer to our family business. The auto-repair is second nature to me. Knowing the ins and outs of that made for a relatively easy transition. Never had dealt with gas before as a gas station – that’s…interesting. Gas is an interesting business.

Managing the convenience store is always strange to me. It’s quite a menagerie, and I like that. I like being able to offer whatever I can of good quality. I don’t want to stretch myself too thin and do anything low-quality. I haven’t done that and I don’t see that happening. I love it when people are like, “Best experience at an auto-repair shop ever” or “Best car wash ever” or “Did you just paint that car?” I have to tell them, “No, it’s a ten-year-old car, I just gave it some love!”

I saw you were started a Breast Cancer Awareness promotion. Could you elaborate on that? 

Yeah, it was an idea for a pink car wash. I want to donate to cancer research. I just saw that Julia Louis-Dreyfus posted today that she has breast cancer, and that should gain some some more eyes and donations out of people’s kindness in their hearts. But for me, I want to do something as well. I’m doing pink snow-foam car washes, which not only look cool, but it cleans well. All for a good cause. We’re going to tally up the amount of washes we do and donate it at the end of the month.
