The largest city of the brokest state in America just opened the doors on the $578-million RFK School. Built on the site of the historic Ambassador Hotel, the K-12 facility is now the most expensive public school in the country.
So how did LA spend that much money?
They gave the school a state-of-the-art swimming pool, underground parking, historically recreated sections of the hotel, “talking benches” that describe the site’s significance, a teacher’s lounge modelled after the famous Cocoanut Grove Night Club — and they got in a bidding war with Donald Trump.
We’ve got designs of the gorgeous school from architectural firm Gonzalez Goodale.
