UCLA Extension Moves Back Near Old Home

UCLA extension has signed a ten-year deal at Figueroa Courtyard, moving into 16k sq. feet in the complex at 3rd and Figueroa. It's a return of sorts for the extension campus, which was located just across the street in the World Trade Center before moving to Little Tokyo and the JACCC. The old Extension space in the World Trade Center is now home to the Oscar de la Hoya Animo Charter High School.

One who drives by the World Trade Center would be excused for not knowing that this move ever took place, given that the building hasn't taken down any of its UCLA signage. Now that the school will be returning to the neighborhood and locating diagonally across the intersection of 3rd and Figueroa, one would assume that they'll require the old signage be taken down to avoid confusion.

Interesting side note: A UCLA report says that (PDF) the school left the World Trade Center due to seismic concerns.
