The New CBS Parking Lot



A prominent on-air news personality has told Hollywood Thoughts that the old CBS Columbia Square facility at Sunset and Gower will most likely be razed, and then rebuilt as a parking lot structure for the upcoming Palladium redevelopment project.

According to the National Trust's website, the Los Angeles Conservancy is, "...working with city officials to find a new purpose for Columbia Square. The good news is that since the building is classified as a historic resource for a Hollywood redevelopment plan, it can't be demolished without an environmental-impact review conducted first.

Situated on the former site of Los Angeles' very first movie studio, Nestor Film Company, the William Lescaze-designed structure already had a past when it was built in 1938. The pilot for "I Love Lucy" was filmed in the eight-studio facility and James Dean ushered there."


Yeah, well... we know how those environmental-impact studies go.

There are few truly outstanding art moderne structures left in L.A., and now, this: word of a possible demotion of Columbia Square. Really sickening prospect. I worked in that building, for both KNX and Channel 2 News, in the early 80s and always felt as thought it was an honor to just be in the building.

Surely there must be another use for the property. Let them build a damn parking structure on the same property, behind the structure itself. Convert Columbia Square to theaters, a restaurant, maybe office space above.

But for Christ's sake, don't level it.

Sorry. I meant demolition, not demotion.
