CurbedWire: NuWilshire Construction in Santa Monica

New, 26 comments

SANTA MONICA: A couple of readers have pointed out that construction has started on the long-boarded up NuWilshire theater in Santa Monica. One wary reader/neighbor wondered about the parking situation and worried about the developer's plans. There's no mention of parking in this recent Santa Monica Daily Press piece, but the story does mention the long delays surrounding the project and the landmark designation. The developer tells the paper he is focusing on the "facade of the building, which, according to the landmarks designation, should remain relatively the same aesthetically. The [marquee], which replaced the original art deco one sometime after 1938, will serve as the sign for the new businesses." It's not clear yet what businesses are coming in. [SMDP]
