City Council hears presentation on repurposing Alhambra's industrial area into a creative district

A media branding agency and the co-founder of the 626 Night Market proposed Thursday that Alhambra re-purpose its industrial area into a creative district, the Pasadena Star-News reports.

Rich Abe, president of Media Portfolio, and David Omori, co-founder of the 626 Night Market, proposed a plan to City Council that would bring production offices, arts spaces, and restaurants to the area between Mission Road and Commonwealth Avenue, bordered by Raymond and Fremont avenues. Abe said this project could create more jobs in the city and attract the 626 Night Market, possibly bringing 40,000 new customers to Alhambra.

Alhambra Mayor Stephen Sham and City Councilman Luis Ayala expressed interest in the proposal. “Over the last couple of years, all we talked about in California is job creation, and we talked about bringing in new job opportunities to the city," Ayala said. "This is a great opportunity for our city to bring in business and bring in something new.”

  1. YES! EXCELLENT IDEA! Many cities are re-creating their older areas making them more appealing by bringing in coffee shops, art districts, entertainment, dog parks, a place where community can meet & stroll & get to know each other (for example look at the Art District in Downtown L.A.)…then Alhambra would not be BORING! But is our city council up to it, or will they pursue the same old-lame lack-of-thinking-outside-the-box and continue with their pro-development condo-building? We need new faces in the city council, new faces that have creative ideas and leadership instead of members who cater only to certain special interest groups.
