New, 20 comments

DOWNTOWN: The fate of downtown's Brockman, that beautiful adaptive re-use project on 530 W. 7th that suspended leasing last month, remains unclear. Dilip Ram, CEO, of West Millennium, the project's developer, told us last week that the Los Angeles-based company is "exploring all options" in regards to West Millennium's future. Norman Salter, chairman of the West Millennium, and the head of Salter Construction (which is part of West Millennium) stated that construction had stopped on some of their projects, but declined to go into detail about individual developments. "The real estate market has been [hit] in an unprecedented way," he said. "We are not immune. We are hurting." [Curbed Staff] Via [Flickr user Amy. Arch]
