Mondette has some photos of a new building called the City View Retail Center on West 3rd St.

The retail building features bright neon blue lighting (at least in color… unsure if it is actually neon that is casting the glow) on the screening for the upper parking levels of the building.

“The determining factor for me is public safety. The bottleneck that the reduction of lanes would create, as well as the inability to ingress and egress at critical points along the way, are likely to greatly impede the ability of police vehicles, fire engines and ambulances to respond in appropriate time,” Koretz said in the letter. “Additionally, the significant lane reduction would impact the ability to keep Melrose […]

LOS ANGELES (TMZ) — Kylie Jenner has just expanded her empire … because TMZ has learned she just bought a massive, new estate in one of the best areas of L.A., with a price tag of $36.5 million.

The house has a chef’s kitchen, an outdoor projection screen, home theatre, bars and game rooms, a gym and a championship-level sports court with pickleball/basketball.

The house also has 2 guest apartments, so she’s got ya, Stassi.

Kylie negotiated well … the house was listed at $45 mil.

The seller has a connection to Kylie. He also sold her land in the Palm Springs area where she’s building a home.
