The Los Angeles Times reported earlier today that the Los Angeles Community College District (LACCD) had backed out of moving into the Van de Kamp's bakery site in Glassell Park. "Because of budget problems, however, the district will now turn the property over, most likely, to the Alliance for College-Ready Public Schools for a charter high school, said Larry Eisenberg, the district's executive director for facilities planning and development." Eastsider LA first broke the news about the LACCD difficulties. Meanwhile, this is how the construction was looking last July; the $70 million dollar project, designed by DMJM, was supposed to open to the college kids this fall.
