Very interesting video released yesterday by the Gold Line Foothill Extension Construction Authority on new development along the downtown L.A.-to-Pasadena Gold Line, which has attracted its share of new residential development — particularly in South Pasadena and Pasadena.
As the video shows, cities along the 13-mile route of the Foothill Extension have plans of their own to create development. There’s undoubtedly space for it and many of the plans have been on the books for years — the reason the cities have been pushing so hard to get the project built.
The Foothill Extension, funded by Measure R, is now under construction and scheduled for completion in 2015. The Construction Authority yesterday gave the contractor building the main part of the line an interim notice to proceed on design and pre-construction activities.
