CurbedWire: Back from the Holiday

WESTWOOD - A follow-up to our previous post on the Mann National in Westwood and the plans by Ron Simms to demolish it. A reader emails us with the proposed rendering (see above) for the new one-story structure that will replace the old theater at the corner of Lindbrook and Gayley. The new structure will be helpfully labeled "STORE, STORE, STORE" alerting people that there are items to buy on the inside. [CurbedWire Inbox]

DOWNTOWN - A reader report's that the Higgins Building at Second and Main has garnered landmark status. " The Higgins Building has been designated a Cultural-Historic Monument by the city of Los Angeles!... The building successfully meets the criteria for inclusion as a commercial building designed in the Beaux-Arts style by Arthur L. Haley and A.C. Martin and because of its role in the development of downtown Los Angeles. In the coming weeks, it will be assigned a Monument number... Mills act application comes next then hopefully a little tax relief... then Barry Shy gets hit by a bus." That lost part was uncalled for, bad reader. [CurbedWire Inbox]

LOS ANGELES - The money-makers at Fortune are jumping on the Pinkberry bandwagon, finally. The story identifies that yes, it is a fad, and yes, celebrities eat it, but misses out on the controversy about what exactly is in it. However, there are some juicy quotes in anticipation of the Red Mango arrival. "[Pinkberry co-founder Young Lee is] not concerned - "They're McDonald's, while we're a homemade burger" - but Dan Kim, Red Mango's U.S. president and a former investment banker, is already making waves, saying that his yogurt is "more authentic," a claim Lee vehemently denies."
