Email To The Scoop – Are they really tearing down some Venice Ave shops and building high rises?
I did not hear this, so I checked with one of my contacts. She did tell me that there is a an application to demolish and replace Dick’s Shoes and Fifi’s. She is not sure whrere they are in that process. Francesco
Glad you got the story about the new traffic patterns in Venice this summer, but I think SNN 6 missed a big part of the story, which my 83 y o mother who lives I a condo down there knew about from talking to the merchants. A whole block, where Carney’s and a bunch of souvenir shops and realtor offices are, is going to be bulldozed and replaced with anew higher rise building. Maybe everyone already knows about this, but when they all want to reminisce about the 1950s downtown Venice, they are going to destroy most of it over the summer. More fun living here, oh yeah!
Dick’s Shoes, Treasures in Time and they are all moving out or closing while the whole building is torn down and replaced they tell her. I don’t see how the historic preservation works if this is done in secret… not that I love that building. I hear it is full of rats and cockroaches anyway.
