[rendering of proposed Pantages addition via LA Times]
On the scale of love it or hate it, we're trending towards the "meh" side. The Clarett Group has proposed to "complete" the Pantages Theater's original plans, which envisioned a ten-story office building as part of the theater complex. Thankfully, the James Nederlander company, the owner of the building, and The Clarett Group, developers of the Blvd6200 project nearby, are keeping this an office project. The last thing we need are more overpriced faux-lofts. The project seems to be wending its way through the city's approval process and the landmine field of neighborhood groups.
