News just coming into ModCom about the Port of Long Beach Administration Building via Lanna Pian of the Historic Theaters Commitee:

"They are going to replace it with a new building by 2012...Their evaluation was it cost too much to retrofit for safety and current earthquake standards... I was there with a tour on Saturday—very nice building, architects: Warren Dedrick & James R. Friend. Also a very nice mural on wall attached to the front of the building. Address is 925 Harbor Plaza, Long Beach, CA 90801... Lovely first floor lobby, and interior light fixtures look original, throughout. From the Observation deck on the roof level with a spectacular view of the LB Harbor and Catalina on a clear day!"
