A vacant auto lot on Colorado near PCC is now for sale with the possibility of being redeveloped
I thought this article from the Los Angeles Times was interesting because there are now vacant auto lots in Pasadena that I hope get redeveloped and reimagined into mixed-use projects (or other more pedestrian friendly uses). The ones I am thinking about in particular are across the street from Pasadena City College (PCC) along Colorado Blvd.
