In our previous 2014 KCRW Masquerade Ball & Legendary Parties post we presented information about the Legendary Park Plaza venue in Los Angeles and our own experience at the 2014 Masquerade Ball. We are now in the possession of the information that “DCGG Park Plaza, owners of the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, have just entered into a joint venture with the Park Plaza’s owners (Wilshire Park Plaza LLC)…and planning vaguely for a “redevelopment.” It’s not clear exactly what they’ll do, but the moment is right for something big to go down at the Park Plaza.” (Read the whole article and people’s opinion on the redevelopment of the building and its surrounding McArthur park area in http://la.curbed.com/archives/2015/01/exclusive_hollywood_roosevelt_owners_will_redevelop_westlakes_neglected_park_plaza_hotel.php#more
Most importantly for the masquerade ball fun lovers is when any of the “vaguely redevelopment” plans will start. The Internet has already titles for the 2015 Jareth Labyrinth masquerade ball, but will it happen this year? We have the dearly double hope that both the Jareth Labyrinth and KCRW Masquerade Balls will happen in 2015. Joining the fun at these two events in 2015 seems a must-go, since what will happen in 2016 and beyond is uncertain. To the extent of the information available to us, we will keep you posted on the redevelopment plans.
On our previous post we asked a quiz question. In consideration of the photos shown in the source article noted above, could it be that the swimming pool was “covered” and it is for now a basketball court?
