January 30, 2012 Downtown News 5 The Readers LETTERS designer tries to include foreign and invasive plants, rather than plants that are native to this area. It’s time that our fashionable designers get over their infatuation with cacti and succulents, which they don’t know how to design with anyway, and use plants that that are more appropriate. Have Their Say About Those City Hall Plants Dear Editor, Y our editorial in the Dec. 19 issue raised a good point about re-landscaping the environs of City Hall with drought tolerant plants instead of sod (“ Grass, Green Thinking and City Hall”). Unfortunately, you suggested re-landscaping with cactus and succulents. Why cactus and succulents? There are thousands of drought-tolerant plants, especially natives, that would be appropriate, and more appropriate than plants that we have imported from our deserts or from other countries. Additionally, a quick glance at the landscaping for the new Police Administrative Building shows how bad a land...

Activating this space has long been a goal for Huizar. city editoR I n 1999, the city approved the Adaptive Reuse Ordinance. The measure, which made it easier and less expensive for developers to turn dilapidated office structures into housing, was a game-changer in Downtown Los Angeles, leading to the creation of thousands of apartments and condominiums. Tom Gilmore’s Old Bank District was the first project to test the city’s Adaptive Reuse Ordinance, “That’s one of the driving opportunities we’re seeing with this,” Bell said.“ We see the opportunity to create more employment, more small-and home-based businesses.” Another conflict concerns the mezzanines in adaptive reuse projects.

January 30, 2012 Downtown News 7 CRA Demise Paints Bleak Future for Steinberg’s bill does not, however, include a mechanism for generating new funds going forward, and it’s the long-term picture that some housing organizations say is most disconcerting. The CRA dissolution hits harder considering that the federal government this year slashed by 38% the budget for its Home program, which replenishes the city’s Affordable Housing Trust Fund. Affordable Housing Funding for Low-Income Downtown Projects Could Become Difficult “If it were just the CRA, it would be one thing, but it’s in the context of every source for affordable housing taking hits,” said Molly Rysman, director of external affairs for permanent supportive housing developer Skid Row Housing Trust. by Ryan VaillancouRt staff wRiteR T he pending dissolution of redevelopment agencies statewide has local affordable housing developers scrambling to plan for a future without the state’s top driver of low and moderate-income resi...

January 30, 2012 Downtown News 9 At Long Last, a Lease Bank of India Fills High-Traffic Space That Had Been Vacant for 22 Years by RichaRd Guzmán this [ block],” said Derrick Moore, vice president of brokerage services at CB Richard Ellis, who had the listing for the last four years. city editoR I n the past 22 years, Downtown Los Angeles has seen hundreds if not thousands of additions. Housing projects have opened, restaurants have come ( and in many instances gone), and the community has welcomed a new home for the L. A. Philharmonic, a new arena, a new cathedral and a headquarters hotel for the Convention Center. The new branch was originally part of an approximately 10,000-square-foot space once occupied by the Bank of Credit and Commerce International. Although no one keeps specific records on the subject, Moore believes the space has been vacant longer than any other actively marketed retail property in Downtown. However, until earlier this month, at least one thing was just l...

In the new map, most of Downtown, except for L. A. Live, South Park and the Fashion District, would be in José Huizar’s 14th District. A coalition of Ninth District stakeholders from Little Tokyo, the Historic Core and South Los Angeles assembled on Thursday at a Perry-organized press conference to urge the commission to preserve the current borders. Perry, who has long been critical of the redistricting process — she resigned her position as council president pro tempore because she said maps were being drawn before the process began — again took aim at the panel for squeezing the Ninth out of Downtown. community, nor do they support communities of interest in this district,” Perry said.

Some residents have lamented the bureaucratic hurdles that arise when a civic issue is handled on one street by Perry and on an adjacent one by Huizar.

The Los Angeles CRA is one of the 400plus state redevelopment agencies set to dissolve on Feb. 1. Legislators are considering a proposal to extend the date to allow cities and other potential successor agencies more time to plan for the post-redevelopment era. Even with an extension, however, there seems little near-term help for local nonprofits that have come to rely on CRA financing. SRO Housing Corporation, a major provider of emergency, transitional and permanent housing in Skid Row, stands to be particularly hard hit. The nonprofit has leaned on annual CRA funding commitments of about $ 500,000 to meet its budget. For years, SRO has managed the CRAowned San Julian Park in Skid Row, paying for maintenance and security. The nonprofit also manages the city-owned Gladys Park at Sixth and Gladys st...
