New, 37 comments

There is a crazy building boom going on in Glendale! The Glendale News-Press reports on an enormous slate of projects underway or set to begin soon; they say that "almost all residential development under construction or in the planning stages ? are apartments, but they will be built to condominium standards so they can be converted and sold later if the condo market returns." Here's a rundown on 10 projects--some are new and some are old friends:
