This week we visit with Michael Holland, acting City Archivist, as he unearths civic treasures from deep in the vault, among them early photos of the soon-to-be-demolished 6th Street Viaduct. We’ll also talk with Kevin Mulcahy of RAC Design Build Studios about his daring proposal to save a section of the demolition-bound Riverside-Figueroa Bridge, to repurpose it as a river-view park.
We’ll also discuss the Union Station Master Plan, CIM steps back from its controversial plan to demolish much of the historic United Artists film studio in West Hollywood, the “Learning From Los Angeles” report on downtown’s adaptive reuse projects, a new proposal to develop the only parking lot on Pershing Square, the long-lost Garden of Allah tabletop model is found, and the San Gabriel Choral Group hosts a concert in Monrovia’s National Register Aztec Hotel. All this and more as Kim and Richard usher in the week of Oct 21st, 2013
