first_imgGLENDALE – In a ceremony complete with confetti and fireworks, officials and community members broke ground Thursday on the $324 million Americana at Brand project. The outdoor mall is expected to open in March 2008 on 15 1/2 acres next to the Glendale Galleria. “Folks, you’re standing on ground zero of the resurgence and the renaissance of Glendale,” City Councilman Ara Najarian said. Americana at Brand will feature retail, restaurants and a movie theater, plus 338 apartments and condominiums. Caruso Affiliated expects to start pouring the foundation and installing utilities late this summer. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

That’s more than the previously disclosed figure of $265 million, the result of both increased construction costs and the fact that the new budget factors in building the condos instead of selling off those building rights to another developer. During the ceremony, officials and community members sat under a white tent as a jazz ensemble played off stage. At one point, Caruso pushed down on a detonator to ignite fireworks in a makeshift wooden building, and the roughly 10-foot structure collapsed as audience members cheered. alex.dobuzinskis@dailynews.com (818) 546-3304last_img read more


first_imgLATEST: EXPERTS have warned that County Donegal could be hit by more earthquakes in the coming weeks if Thursday’s tremor follows recent patterns.Three quakes in three weeks hit the same area of north Donegal in 2010.David Galloway from the British Geological Survey admitted: “We simply don’t know for certain what will happen. We might not see another earthquake like this for some time. “However it is just as likely that there is a repeat of the cluster of a couple of years ago and we could one, two or more earthquakes in and around Lough Swilly where the Lennan Fault runs.“The epicentre was around Portsalon, and that’s only a few miles away from previous earthquakes in that area.”Hundreds of people were shaken out of their beds over a wide area from Letterkenny to Buncrana and in many areas in between shortly after 1am on Thursday by a 2.2 Richter Scale quake.Schools in Buncrana and Stranorlar were able to pick up the readings on specialist equipment used in geology classes.
