Developed by Anschutz Entertainment, LA Live! is a 27-acre regional mixed-use development that includes the Staples Center, Regal Cinema movie theatre complex, the Nokia Theater, restaurants and retail, condominium and apartments, sports, entertainment centers, and hotel venues. When it was completed in 2009, the project was seen as a significant part of the revitalization of downtown. The heart of LA Live! is Nokia Plaza, a 40,000-square-foot open-air square that serves as the central meeting place and broadcast venue featuring giant LED screens as well as a red carpet site for special events.
