The LAX Coastal Chamber of Commerce is proud to present this year’s 2018 LAX Coastal Magazine & Business Guide. As a proud member of the LAX Coastal community, representing businesses from the airport to the sea and beyond, the Chamber works hard to build better relationships between local business, government, and residents. They are always striving to fulfill their mission of elevating the local business climate, using their more than 65 years of experience to be the best business resource in the region—and in that endeavor, publish the LAX Coastal Magazine each year to inform, educate, and promote their 500+ members to the surrounding communities.
This year’s cover story, Straight Down Century Blvd., discusses current construction projects and infrastructure updates happening within our region. From the Los Angeles World Airport’s $4.2 billion-dollar modernization plan for LAX all the way down to the Los Angeles Stadium at Hollywood Park, and under the supervision of the Gateway Los Angeles BID, Century Boulevard is a hub of expansion. “The advancement of LAX presents a once-in-a-generation opportunity for businesses surrounding the airport to capitalize on the airport’s drive to modernize—and that change is already happening,” writes Geoff Maleman of Maleman Ink Public Relations, the author of this year’s cover story. “Come Century corridor office buildings are being renovated to attract creative economy tenants seeing to locate close to the airport, while others are being re-envisioned as hotels to take advantage of new potential guests.” And Century Boulevard isn’t alone, with the article touching on a potential Inglewood Basketball and Entertainment Center, how SpaceX has inspired Hawthorne expansion, and Metro’s vision of a better-connected city.
Readers of the LAX Coastal Magazine can treat themselves to a rooftop view of the Century corridor, with a foldout spread featuring a panoramic photo of the street, shot from atop the helipad of the Hilton Los Angeles Airport Hotel by photographer Mike Harriel of Mike Harriel Photography.
The magazine also highlights additional community advancements, with articles discussing a new nonprofit dedicated to supporting local education, a storefront and photo gallery highlighting the area’s rich history, how to get involved in local policy, the rise of public art, and more.
With a distribution of over 17,000, the LAX Coastal Magazine & Business Guide is an annual publication that not only includes relevant stories to keep readers up-to-date on what is happening in the area, it also highlights local businesses and features the Chamber’s directory of 500+ members. With member spotlights on the first page of each industry section, the Chamber gives a brief introduction to some of the many deserving members that are working to support the community, all while advocating for the “Shop Local” movement. Every community is only as strong as the network of individuals working within it, and the LAX Coastal Chamber is proud to be part of a community with such high levels of engagement.
Just like the community, the success of the LAX Coastal Magazine would not be possible without the support of its proud members and advertisers. This magazine does not just belong to the Chamber, but to the community as a whole, and LAX Coastal Chamber leadership and staff would like to say, “Thank you!”
