Hollywood & Highland

Architect: Eurenkrantz Eckstut and Kuhn

General Contractor: McCarthy

Hollywood & Highland is at the center of entertainment, dining, and nightlife on one of the world’s most famous streets. Hollywood & Highland is home to the Kodak Theater, the permanent home of the Academy Awards and many other high profile televised events, as well as being the second largest attraction for visitors to Southern California. Since opening November 9, 2003, millions of people have visited the Hollywood & Highland entertainment complex, the first major development in the current renaissance of the Hollywood community.

Because millions of people are exposed each year to this landmark project, it was essential that the specialty decorative elements such as the concrete and Lithocrete® provided by Shaw & Sons were top notch. In addition, the massive size and logistically challenging aspects of the project required a professional and cooperative team to integrate these elements into the overall construction fabric.

Once again, Shaw & Sons has contributed its expertise and craftsmanship to a complicated and a challenging landmark project. Hollywood and Highland has to be one of the most difficult undertakings in recent construction history, and it was pulled off to perfection by your firm. You can be very proud of the results of your efforts. We look forward to continuing our relationship with Shaw & Sons, which has been ongoing on similar high profile projects, for nearly a decade.
