Glendale Mixed-User The Link Will Take Out Possible 1930s Gem

New, 38 comments

The Link, a mixed-use project in a part of Glendale that's been left mostly untouched by the city's building boom, may have hit a bit of a snag: the Glendale Historical Society thinks the building currently on the site is eligible for the city's historic register. They wrote in a letter to the city council that "the 1930s building, formerly the Hopper's Office Furniture store, may be eligible for designation as a historic resource ... as a surviving example of Spanish Colonial Revival commercial architecture." The group is asking that this be considered when the draft environmental impact report on The Link is prepared. The fly in the ointment, as Glendale News-Press points out, is that the building can only be added to the historic register at its owner's request; he says he'll "wait until the environmental review process is complete before saying whether he would request the building be listed on the Glendale Register of Historic Resources." The Glendale city council gave their initial sign off earlier this month to the five-story development that would bring 142 new apartments over ground floor commercial space to San Fernando Road.
