LA’s proposed short-term rental ordinance could return more than 11,000 residential units back into the city’s permanent housing stock.

REPORT: Los Angeles’ Airbnb ordinance could return approximately 11,000 homes back into city’s housing stock in the near term

LOS ANGELES, CA – AirbnbWATCH, an affordable housing advocate and consumer watchdog group, released a report today with concerning statistics and trends regarding short-term vacation rentals in Los Angeles and provided a positive analysis of the recent proposed short-term rental ordinance.

One of those troubling statistics:  the number of short-term rentals in Los Angeles has been growing more rapidly than the general housing supply. In fact, the number of short-term rental units in Los Angeles jumped by approximately 9.7 percent or 200 listings per month from mid-2016 to 2018.

Unlike other U.S. cities, which typically see investors controlling 20 percent of short-term listings, Los Angeles is seeing more than 45 percent of its short-term rentals being controlled by investors citywide and more than 50 percent in Venice, Westwood, West Los Angeles, Hollywood, and other downtown/central neighborhoods. That’s twice the average of other major cities.

“Los Angeles has an affordable housing crisis on its hands, which is exacerbated by the proliferation of professional short-term rentals. The city council must act now to stop the out-of-control downward spiral in the city’s permanent housing stock,” stated Lauren Windsor, spokesperson for AirbnbWATCH.  “The lack of regulation has made short-term rental ownership a lucrative business for investors, at the expense of everyday Angelenos struggling to keep a roof over their heads. Los Angeles should follow the lead of other cities and eliminate professional short-term investor rentals.”

While the report raises concerning trends regarding the negative impacts of short-term rentals on Los Angeles’s permanent residential housing, the analysis shows that the proposed ordinance passed by city council back in May that is currently moving through the city planning commission would have a positive impact in protecting it.

The report illustrates that under the current growth trend, approximately 27,957 of current short-term vacation rentals in Los Angeles would rise to more than 33,000 rentals by July 2020. This would remove another 4,800 or more residential homes from the city’s housing stock.

However, if the Los Angeles ordinance is enacted, the number of short-term vacation rentals would decline to under 20,000 rentals. The gap between Los Angeles’ number of short-term vacation rental listings under the “as-is” status quo versus the expected reduction effect of the proposed short-term ordinance could be 11,000 or more within the next two years.

“Bottom line, the proposed short-term rental ordinance as-is could increase Los Angeles’ permanent housing stock by more than 11,000 homes over the next two years by eliminating professional short-term rental investing,” stated Windsor. “This will not only return thousands of homes to the city’s long-term housing supply, but protect thousands more from being bought up by investors. The Los Angeles City Council should enact the ordinance without delay.”

4DX is the world’s first and leading 4D technology-based movie experience that brings moving seats and environmental effects like wind, rain and scent to movie theaters around the world

I was super happy when we got the invite to watch Incredibles 2 in a 4DX theater, because the 4DX experience just makes it extremely special. They provide the largest number of multisensory signature effects industry-wide. With 20 different kinds of signature effects, 4DX creates the most outstanding environment for movies. My son’s Aidan and Chase accompanied me to the movie, and we were in for a treat.
4DX is the world’s first and leading 4D technology-based movie experience that brings moving seats and environmental effects like wind, rain and scent to movie theaters around the world.
It is basically a theme park attraction added to your favorite nearby movie theater. A great way to experience excitement without the expensive trip to a theme park.
There are currently 10 cinemas in the U.S. (and more than 500 worldwide) featuring 4DX, including locations in Southern California, New York, Seattle, Orlando, Chicago metro area, and D.C. with more to come
Whike watching The Incredibles 2 we experienced the smells, The chairs moved, sprayed water, and gave us a feeling like we were actually a part of the movie.
After 14 years, the Parr family is still as lovably and quirky as you remember them.
Seeing these characters again after 14 years was a huge blast of the past, it’s great how the sequel picked up right where the original left off. The story line along with the added thrills. Felt like an advancement from the first movie, and so proud to see a superhero film with a female as the hero

LA FLEET WEEK® 2018 NAVY FILM FESTIVAL TO CELEBRATE 100 YEARS OF NAVY IN HOLLYWOOD

LA FLEET WEEK® 2018 NAVY FILM FESTIVAL TO CELEBRATE
100 YEARS OF NAVY IN HOLLYWOOD

San Pedro’s Historic Warner Grand Theatre to Screen Classic Military-Themed Films Throughout Labor Day Weekend + First Episode of ‘Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan’
by LA Fleet Week® Presenting Sponsor Amazon Prime Video

SAN PEDRO, Calif. – Aug. 8, 2018 – Featuring black-and-white to modern-era films, LA Fleet Week® 2018 presented by Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan on Amazon Prime Video will include a Labor Day Weekend Navy Film Festival at the iconic Warner Grand Theatre in downtown San Pedro. The Festival will celebrate the century-long relationship between the US Navy and the world-renowned film industry that has brought military life, storylines and battle realities to the big screen since 1918.

“This Festival marks a milestone for the US Navy and Hollywood, highlighting the ways that movies have—and will continue to—shape what we think about the military, as well as the men and women who serve,” said US Navy retired Rear Admiral Mike Shatynski, co-founder and board member of the LA Fleet Week Foundation. “As a kid growing up in LA, military-themed movies definitely were something that influenced my decision to serve my country and see the world.”

The festival will also commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Fleet Combat Camera units, groups of service personnel assigned to filming and documenting the history and activities of the US Navy and other branches. Since World War II, Combat Camera footage has been featured in Hollywood movies and Navy documentaries, and used for military training and educational purposes. The Festival will honor the Navy’s Combat Camera unit, which is slated to be decommissioned this year.

The film festival will screen six different classic films from Sept. 1-3 at the historic Warner Grand Theatre in San Pedro, with each night featuring a different theme. The first film each night will be shown at
5:00 p.m. and the second at 8:15 p.m. The first episode of the new series “Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan” will be shown between each feature film, compliments of Amazon Prime Video.
