The Glendale Galleria
, that dingy relic of an earlier, pre-Grove era, will soon have some competition for the expendable income of LA consumers. Glendale Citizens (Glendaliens?) apparently okayed
a huge mixed-use project
that will, in all likelihood, spell doom for the Galleria, much as the Grove
has dispatched the Beverly Connection and now has the Bev Center itself in a chokehold.
But don't think the Galleria is gonna go down without a fight. The new owners
of that drab brick pile have their own plan
for a "town center", one that is centered around, surprise, their mall. They're also planning to contest the election results (hanging chads, perhaps?) and
contest the whole thing in court, which shows how seriously they take the threat of a new Grove perched right on their doorstep.
This is gonna be one helluva fight. Hopefully whoever wins, Glendale doesn't lose.
