9900 Wilshire Delay

New, 9 comments

A "gigantic water pipe" that runs under the eastern portion of the Robinsons-May, site of planned 9900 Wilshire project, will have to be replaced by developer Candy & Candy, reports Beverly Hills Weekly. "The owners will have to delay demolition and pay for the costs of a new pipeline through the property. Costs could be as much as $2 to $3 million and demolition put off at least until January of next year, maybe even longer." Demolition was supposed to start this summer; if the aging pipe issue wasn't addressed, there would have been a "massive environmental disaster." Meanwhile, the reader who forwarded the story wrote: "A more creative excuse than blaming the economy." [BHW]
