A 535-unit live-work apartment complex that is being proposed for an entire downtown city block could become the largest residential development project Glendale has seen since a development boom took hold in the city. The City Council is set to review the project on Oct. 8. The developer, Amidi Group, submitted plans with the city last month, but the company has yet to seal the deal with Citibank, which owns the 3.18-acre lot bounded by Central and Lexington avenues and Milford and Orange streets.

For the first time in several years, the Glendale emergency winter shelter may not be located at the National Guard Armory, a downtown site that has sparked controversy in the past, in large part because of its proximity to the Central Library and shopping centers. Instead, the 80-bed shelter program is slated to be split into two sites near the city's southern border with Los Angeles. Both locations will be operated by Ascencia, Glendale's largest homeless services provider.  “The armory is really not a good location for us,” said Natalie Profant Komuro, executive director of Ascencia, during a Homeless Coalition meeting at City Hall Thursday.  In addition to community issues, the armory often has black-out dates when it's being used for training purposes, requiring shelter operators to find temporary housing for the homeless - often in local churches.

City officials aim to increase the life of the 535-acre Scholl Canyon Landfill - both a moneymaker and money saver for Glendale - by more than a decade with two proposed expansion options that are currently under environmental review. The first option involves an approximately 11.5-million-cubic-yard vertical expansion that would add 13 years to the landfill's life, while the second includes both horizontal and vertical extensions equaling about 16.5 million cubic yards, increasing the landfill's life by 19 years, according to the project's draft environmental impact report.

After 50 years in Glendale, Red Carpet Wine & Spirits is pulling up stakes and moving to Arcadia. To some, it's the end of an era. Glendale city spokesman Tom Lorenz said he bought cigars at Red Carpet to hand out after the birth of his first child. “If you wanted to get a good bottle of wine and pick out a good cigar, that was the place to go,” Lorenz said Wednesday. Opened in 1964 on Brand Boulevard by John Vincenti, the liquor store that specializes in fine wines moved to 400 E. Glenoaks Blvd.

SOUTHWEST GLENDALE — The Seeley’s Furniture building has for the past 62 years dominated the southernmost entryway in the city, a track record that will continue for decades more after the City Council last week put it on the registry of historic resources. Placement on the registry comes as Los Angeles-based Creative Environments of Hollywood prepares to rework the site for tenancy after sitting vacant for more than 10 years at the corner of San Fernando Road and Brand Boulevard.

Police plan to step up enforcement on Kenneth Road in Northwest Glendale this Halloween after roughly 3,000 trick-or-treaters swamped the neighborhood last year, bringing with them trash, vandalism and a whole lot of headaches for residents. Thousands of Halloween revelers from Glendale and Los Angeles descended on Kenneth Road last Oct. 31 to get candy while other trick-or-treaters simply cruised and vandalized the neighborhood, Glendale police Lt. Bruce Fox said. “It really overwhelmed the neighbors,” he said.

Where I work, one of the most common questions editors ask each other is whether some term — say soymilk or healthcare — should be written as one word or two. And the responses we get and give might surprise you. Though occasionally one of us will answer, "I just looked that up today! Soymilk is one word," more often, someone will yell out, "Let me check. " Knowing whether a term is one word, two words, or hyphenated would be the hardest part of an editor's job were it not for one thing: We're not supposed to know.

Unable to walk or talk, 8-year-old Aidan Leung may be headed to a precedent-setting case before the California Supreme Court that centers on a lawsuit in which his family won an estimated $96-million judgment against Verdugo Hills Hospital for negligence shortly after he was born. [Correction appended. See below for details.] An appellate court wiped out that verdict on March 23, reducing the hospital’s liability to about $100,000. But in an unusual step, the justices asked the Supreme Court to reverse their ruling and “repudiate” a decades-old legal maxim, called the release rule.
