Kudos on approving Central condo project I just wanted to say thank you to the Glendale City Council for approving the mixed-use condominium project at the corner of Central Avenue and California Street this week. Until recently, I lived in the 300 block of West California Street. One of the great things about living there was the proximity to Brand Boulevard, the Alex Theatre, numerous restaurants and the Galleria -- making it easy to take a leisurely stroll to reach these destinations.
