New, 11 comments

DOWNTOWN: Metro has big plans for Union Station, which they recently bought and hope to bring oodles of new development and amenities to (with the help of architecture team Gruen and Grimshaw). As part of their Union Station Master Plan, the transit agency is holding a community meeting on Tuesday night from 6:30 - 8 p.m. in their HQ--across from Union Station--to garner input on the massive undertaking.

LOS ANGELES: Thanks to a grant from the Jesse Ball duPont fund, the National Trust for Historic Preservation and the Urban Land Institute today launched a new partnership to advance preservation of older/historic buildings, with an initial emphasis on LA. "The city of Los Angeles was selected for the pilot on the basis of its rich stock of historic resources and its Adaptive Reuse Ordinance, which, since 1999, has helped facilitate the conversion of dozens of historic and underutilized structures," according to a statement.
