A $500 million 'sunset-shaped' Hollywood office tower featuring open-air gardens and a 'sky lift' could go up in as little as five years, developers say, as employers jostle for the most amenity-filled buildings to draw in top talent.

'The Star' was designed by MAD Architects, a Chinese firm known for experimental designs like an apartment complex shaped like a rollercoaster. The building's developers, a separate LLC called 'The Star,' filed an application with the city of Los Angeles on Thursday.

The curved glass tower will rise up 22 floors and cover 500,000 sq ft.

Not bad: The veteran star revealed a decent sized football pitch, complete with goals posts, at the rear of his sprawling family home. The announcement comes just days after he reached a deal to avoid jail time after a security guard scandal in Florida on New Year's Eve. Rod and his son Sean will avoid jail time and a potentially embarrassing trial for their role in a New Year's Eve fight at an upscale Palm Beach resort. DailyMail.com exclusively revealed that Sir Rod's legal team reached a deal with prosecutors last week where the duo were expected to plead no contest to the charge of simple battery.

Early September 14, paramedics received a call about a 'long fall' at Sunset Gower Studios, where the person was said to be 'grave' condition, at which point it was revealed that the victim was a crew member on the set of the film. The duo were seen filming a nighttime sequence involving a tortoise, as they sprinted back and forth to their car before carrying the animal it to ER. Sunset Gower Studios: The famed production lot lies in the heart of Hollywood and the victim was rushed to a regional hospital via ambulance, though it is unknown if production was halted; entrance to studios pictured August 2020.

'The Star' would be an imposing addition to its spot on Sunset Boulevard, which currently hosts a series of office buildings and a parking lot flanked by a Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles and a Hollywood Palms Inn & Suites motel, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Architect Ma Yansong of Mad called the building 'very sculptural,' reminiscent of a sunrise 'or a sunset,' he laughed. 'It's on Sunset Boulevard.'

The Yale-educated 46-year-old architect and professor says he was inspired by some of the striking circular shapes already dotting the City of Angels, such as the Griffith Observatory, the Capitol Records building, the Hollywood Bowl and the Cinerama Dome.

She wins,' she wrote of the model's gold feather gown and massive headpiece by Dolce & Gabbana x Harris Reed.

He went on to help at a nearby signal box aged 12 and as an adult built up an enormous hoard, with experts originally estimating the collection could achieve £70,000 at auction. Four individual locomotives fetched more than £1,000 individually as rail enthusiasts bid for more than 350 lots at Hansons Auctioneers in Etwall, Derbys. Nigel Thornley, a railway lover who lived in Chester and died earlier this year aged 72, was given his first train set as an 18-month-old toddler.

'It asserts a new typology for the office of the future,' Yansong said in a press release that calls the building a 'creative office campus.'

His firm is also designing the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art, a museum dedicated to 'visual storytelling in its richness and complexity' and founded by Star Wars director George Lucas. It's scheduled to open in 2023.

Developers want 'The Star' to be occupied by just one tenant in the entertainment industry, said Edgar Khalatian, a land-use attorney who represents the Los Angeles limited liability company that bought the site in 2017.

The LLC is a family partnership led by Maggie Gong Miracle, a Chinese-born investor and real estate agent who lives in Los Angeles. All the money for the project will be raised in the US, Khalatian told the LA Times.

'The Star' will require a general plan amendment and a re-zoning, but developers are hopeful that the city will approve the project in two years, followed by three years of construction.

The orchestra tours towns and cities in the UK with live productions and educational projects, reaching nearly 50,000 people a year, according to its website.

Companies are vying for top-notch space as they seek to attract and keep good talent after a pandemic-era realignment of priorities.

Stunning link between miracle boy AJ Elfalak and anti-vaccine lawsuit

  Stunning link between miracle boy AJ Elfalak and anti-vaccine lawsuit Alan Hashem was the first to raise the alarm on social media when three-year-old AJ disappeared from his family home in Putty, 150km northwest of Sydney, last Friday. The toddler was miraculously found alive just 500m from where he was last seen four days later - after spending three nights in the icy cold, wet wilderness.Mr Hashem used his far-reaching anti-vaccine community to spread the message -  with some of his friends travelling from locked-down Sydney to help in the search.

'Given changing employee preferences and employers' needs to attract and retain gold-standard talent, new office construction will need to be a world apart from what exists now,' said Petra Durnin, head of market analytics at Raise Commercial Real Estate.

'Just as retail evolved in recent years and became experiential to draw consumers to brick-and-mortar locations, so must new office design.'

The building was 'specifically engineered for the post-Covid environment,' according to Marathon Communications, a PR firm representing the developers

In addition to LEED certification, which certifies the eco-friendliness of buildings, 'The Star' will also seek WELL certification, which measures a building's impact on human physical and mental health through air, water, nourishment, light, fitness and comfort.

The streaming website Netflix is currently Hollywood's largest tenant, recently renting the Epic office tower on Sunset and the new On Vine complex on Vine Street, but plans for 'The Star' are already underway regardless of who ends up filling it.

Los Angeles firm Salt Landscape Architects will design four levels of foliage meant to 'connect people to the healing nature of plants,' according to Michelle Frier, a senior associate at the firm.

While the “Tickets to My Downfall” singer met up with girlfriend Megan Fox at a Met Gala afterparty after the concert was forced to end early due to weather, the Poosh founder and the Blink-182 musician dined at the Polo Bar.

It will start with tall trees, ferns and grasses lining the walk from Sunset Boulevard to the base of the building.

The 10th floor garden will be fragrant and colorful, with lavender, pink muhly and other soft grasses and plants that would sway in the wind.

The 17th floor garden would be more 'sculptural,' Frier said, with plants like agaves and succulents.

Both of the open-air garden floors would be larger than average in area and height, with enough room for garden paths and places to sit.

Meanwhile, the rooftop dome with the restaurant will have vines and 'airy, soft plants that play with the light coming through that dome,' Frier said.

Mad Architects has churned out a number of impressive buildings that often play off their surroundings.

The beachfront Fake Hills residential complex stretches across half a mile of shoreline in Beihai, China.

It was completed in December 2016 and mimics an undulating rollercoaster.

'Born from the desire to capture the region's distinctive scenic character, the design places an iconic mountainous profile along the ocean-front,' Mad said in a statement, according to online architecture magazine Dezeen.

'This response passed over the typical, mundane, urban tower complexes of recent developments in China for a visionary solution: a sinuous landscape comprised of roof terraces and balconies imbued with nature, light and air that immerses residents within the environment.'

A year earlier, Mad completed the stunning Harbin Grand Theatre in northern China.

According to ArchDaily: 'Upon entering the grand lobby, visitors will see large transparent glass walls spanning the grand lobby, visually connecting the curvilinear interior with the swooping façade and exterior plaza.

'Soaring above, a crystalline glass curtain wall soars over the grand lobby space with the support of a lightweight diagrid structure. Comprised of glass pyramids, the surface alternates between smooth and faceted, referencing the billowing snow and ice of the frigid climate.'

The firm also designed a snowflake-shaped terminal for the Harbin Taiping International Airport, which is expected to be completed in 2030.
