From an Architect: Buying vacant lots in LA / by Apurva Pande

Curbed LA had an interesting write-up recently on the vicissitudes of buying and evaluating vacant lots in Los Angeles and interviewed CHA:COL.  We support the idea of educating people about the hidden complexities behind vacant properties, with actual examples of projects in planning and construction. CHA:COL will be presenting on the topic this June at Dwell on Design, so do keep an eye out for it.
