More details are emerging following the Los Angeles County’s Board of Supervisor’s decision to end Gladstones’ lease on county land at Will Rogers State Beach in November 2019. The officially anointed lead contender to replace the 40-year-old fish restaurant is a consortium led by celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck, star architect Frank Gehry and Riviera-based developer Thomas Tellefsen. But the board also officially appointed an alternate to the  backup, just in case a deal cannot be struck over the next few months: a high-powered consortium called Ocean on Sunset whose alternative architectural rendering is exclusively revealed above.
