Building that replaced Edwards Theater in Alhambra getting ready for more than 500 workers
Signs for the Los Angeles County Community Development Commission's new office can now been seen at the former Edwards Atlantic Palace site on the corner of Main Street and Atlantic Boulevard. But employees will not move in until late November, officials say.
Approximately 260 employees will begin working at the Alhambra office on November 26, according to CDC executive director Sean Rogan. A second wave of roughly 250 employees will move in one month later, on December 24.
The office's 700 W. Main St. location was formerly the site of the Alhambra Theater, one of Los Angeles' most historic movie theaters. The Edwards Atlantic Palace multiplex was built in its place after the original theater was destroyed in the 1987 Whittier earthquake. The multiplex was demolished last July after the county purchased the property.
