Which Way, L.A.? on Grand Ave Project

Timely considering today's votes, yesterday's edition of Which Way, L.A.? was about the Grand Avenue Project and whether such a private development should receive public subsidies. I haven't had a chance to listen yet, but back in my commuting days Warren Olney's show was my favorite on KCRW.

While I don't pretend that the Grand Avenue Project is a savior of Downtown, I think this is just another piece of the puzzle and look forward to seeing it approved and built. Certainly $100 million is nothing when compared to the longterm rewards of the project and of a vibrant Downtown.

Update (12:30pm): And the project passes through City Council unanimously.

Update (2:15pm): Within an hour after the vote the Downtown News pushed a breaking news story to their website.
