Date: October 26th
Location: The Los Feliz Community Police Center,
1965 Hillhurst Ave., 2nd Floor of Citibank Building
''I'm not sure how we would incorporate the Derby. That would be a challenge we would have to look at. That wasn't our original plan.''
Adler Vice President Richard Gable
As some of you might know by now the property for The Derby has some new owers and they are planning to build a 5 story, 80 condominum complex with retail stores! There are no plans to integrate the Derby, instead the plan is to Bulldoze over one of the few remaining landmarks of Los Angeles!
Its a shame that Expensive "Luxury" condos and generic chain stores will replace one of the few historic Los Angles landmarks. Not only will it take away the Los Feliz's charm that we love but this "Monster Building" could add to the already congested traffic, tear down Majestic Pine trees (a rare find in LA), and turn the area into a generic strip mall! If you love the Derby and the surrounding area show up and make your voice heard this effects you!
