Quick Bits from Chicago

By Eric Richardson

Bus Shelters: The green bus shelters that are part of the City's street furniture contract with ViacomDecaux have become pretty ubiquitous. That's what made it a little odd when a random black shelter showed up on the 1st street side of City Hall a while back. Here it finally clicked: that shelter is exactly like the Chicago shelters.

Slipping Schedule: In its look-ahead issue for 2007 the Downtown News includes the LA Theatre Center as a "Piece of the Puzzle":

Los Angeles Theatre Center: If all goes as planned, a $4 million renovation of the LATC will be complete in the spring. The revamped building at 514 S. Spring St., now run by the Latino Theater Company, will be a three-theater complex with new lighting and seats, gallery space for the Latino Museum of History, Art and Culture, and a cafe.

Unfortunately all hasn't gone as planned, and as of the last update from General Services on December 13th (PDF) the grand opening date for the complex is September 19th. Not quite spring.
