Hollywood and Highland

The Hollywood sign can be seen from the main courtyard at the Hollywood & Highland complex, opening this week and expected to draw both tourists and Southland residents.
Hollywood quotes are embedded in the courtyard at the complex, next to Grauman’s Chinese Theatre.
Hollywood draws millions of tourists each year. The new TrizecHahn project will employ about 2,500 people, at least 70% of them from the surrounding neighborhoods.
The community has been largely supportive of the development one neighbor calls “a Hollywood version of the Beverly Center.”
An ornate ceiling crowns the 3,600-seat Kodak Theatre, new home of the Academy Awards and part of Hollywood & Highland, a retail center with more than 60 shops and restaurants. It’s all part of what one expert predicts will be “the next great entertainment district in America.”
The balcony area of Kodak Theatre includes irregular patterns of wood and color.

Workers are putting the finishing touches on the facility before its public opening Friday with a concert. The complex is one of the largest retail and entertainment projects to be built in L.A. in many years.
