The Del Mar station looks like it's going to be a very nice stop! I really like the Old Town stop, right below the residential apartments! Looks very nice!

The Gold Line should really extend eastward on the 210 (they have plans for that, but that won't happen for a LONG time).

[good thing the gold line will be extending to east LA though, that's also much needed.]

Pasadena part of the SGV?????

I thought the tri~cities were not claiming any valley. By the way that would be Burbank, Glendale and Pasadena. I know they are not part of the SFV. So we need to look into this, nice pix by the way!!!!

Fresh Renderings for 100 West Walnut
Mixed-use development slated for parking lots surrounding Parsons office complex.

Plans to redevelop the surface parking lots surrounding the Parsons Corporation's Pasadena headquarters have taken another step forward.

Earlier this month, the city's design commission approved the 100 West Walnut development, which would create a series of five-and-six-story buildings along Fair Oaks Avenue and Walnut Street. The project, which is being developed by Lincoln Property Company and AMLI Residential, will feature approximately 210,000 square feet of office space, 17,500 square feet of ground-floor commercial space and as many as 475 residential units.

The proposed development, designed by architecture firms SOM and Harley Ellis Devereaux, would feature a series of contemporary buildings adjacent to Old Town Pasadena. The design commission and the development team hope to incorporate signage which would draw pedestrian traffic from the adjacent historic district.

Plans call for significant open space, such as an internal courtyards, alleys and pathways. A new driveway would separate the mixed-use community from the Parsons Building, and is also expected to allow for cut-through pedestrian traffic. Other features would include a dog park, a pool and a rooftop deck.

Two Mixed-Use Buildings Remake Pasadena's Walnut Avenue

Pasadena's Playhouse District has taken on new life in recent years, with the addition of several mixed-use buildings featuring commercial offices, apartments and ground-floor retail space. Two of its latest developments are now rising just blocks apart along Walnut Street.

At Walnut and Hudson Avenue, developer Greystar Real Estate Partners is midway through construction on the Hudson, a collection of three-to-five-story buildings which will feature 91 studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments above ground-floor retail space. Each unit will come complete with high ceilings, stainless teel appliances, walk-in closets and balconies.

After delay, Hyatt hotel at Pasadena’s Paseo Colorado seems back on track

the demolition of a former Macy’s last year has received the funding it needs to begin construction by this summer.

Once slated to complete in mid-2017, the developers behind the project say they’re now aiming for a 2018 opening.

“The good news is it is moving forward,” said Nate Mercer, director of marketing for Ensemble Real Estate Solutions in Long Beach. “We’re anticipating a 14-month construction schedule as long as everything falls into place.”

I'm a little disappointed in this project because this could have been much more but it is still better than the parking lot that is there. Pasadena is a gem. I remember the days when that whole area, even up and down Colorado was like skid row with all of the burned out and empty buildings. It has truly turned around fabulously over the years.

The unfortunate part is the continuing move of defense and related contractors away from innovation hubs and into lobbying hubs, where quality work is secondary to juicing the generals and congressmen and feeding at the taxpayers' trough.

So far computer tech has fought this (other than IBM that is basically a lobbying firm not a computer firm). Otherwise even US high tech design and manufacturing companies are looking for government contracts and will soon go the way of the crappo French, UK and other European former industrial leaders who survive on government contracts and selling junk to the third world.

But, at least Old Town Pasadena will still be there. Unless Amazon can take them down too!
