Such a dignified, elegant, refined building. I drove by this morning. It's 9/10ths gone...

Miracle Mile: Mullen & Bluett

I used to live in the neighborhood, at 3rd and Cloverdale, in a newer
building, with the most incredible view of downtown "framed" within
my sliding doors, once I opened the front door. Miss that place. :(

But actually, will miss this architectural gem that is being demolished,
as I had frequented the stores (Sav-On, Office Depot, as well as the
AAA office on the corner) quite frequently. Such a loss, for the
new "fake" deco crap that will take its place. :evil:

Hard to believe that Wilshire Blvd. once was "the" place to shop with
dozens of stores and restaurants that created someplace special, but
I really hope that developers will start to think about what is being
lost. Does Los Angeles really need to recreate an imitation of
South Beach, with Deco "wannabes" lining the Boulevard? I hope not.

Am so glad I found this website, have been reading weekly to follow
the status of all the historic places that are in jeopardy.

Thank you to all those who contribute, from this former LA guy (who
is anxious to return when able). 8)
