The PT Lofts - An UpdateFinally, there have been a couple developments in the PT Loft project, my potential future home. The first piece of good news is that the environmental impact report was certified by the Long Beach Planning Commission a couple of weeks ago. According to the website, full entitlement by the City Council is expected to be granted in March. That's essentially the greenlight they need to begin construction which is expected to take 2-2.5 years. In addition, the building was vacated this past weekend when the newspaper moved out after 81 years. You can read about the Long Beach Press Telegram's history with the building here.
UPDATE: I found this article with details of the planning commission meeting. Hysterically enough, there was an ad banner for one of my favorite gossip blogs, Defamer, across the top.
