Ivy @ Monrovia

If you’re a long time reader of our blog, you might remember way back to last September when the Planning Commission approved a new multi-family development at 138 East Olive.  And if your memory is really good, you probably remember this building.

While we had high hopes that the old SAK building would find new life, the owner discovered that the building had issues.  Big issues!  Unfortunately, the building had to come down.  The site later served as a temporary parking lot, temporary fire station, temporary construction staging area…

After sitting vacant for several years, Williams Homes proposed a new 18-unit residential condominium that will complete the vision established for the 100 block of East Olive that started with Paragon.  With final approvals under their belt, they are moving full speed ahead into the construction phase and are in the final stages of the plan check process.  We expect them to break ground soon.  Here’s what it’s going to look like.
