City Council Votes to Take Land for Motorpool
DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES — Yesterday City Council voted to use condemnation powers to obtain the land needed for the LAPD motorpool planned to sit on Main street, between 2nd and 3rd. This spells the end of the road for the building that houses the MJ Higgins Gallery. The late 1800's structure was the spot where the idea of Gallery Row was hatched.
I hate to be negative two posts in a row, but it really is a mistake to be locating LAPD's car wash and gas station on that block, directly next to St. Vibiana's and across the street from the Linda Lea.
