Third Lawsuit Filed To Save Historic Music Venue
On August 3, 2004, Friends of the Raymond Theatre and Forecast Foundation filed a new joint lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court against the City of Pasadena and developers Buchanan/Perkins/Symonds Limited Partnership. The new action marks the third lawsuit pertaining to the proposed mixed-use condominium project slated to redevelop Pasadena's Historic Raymond Theatre. The lawsuit alleges that the newly modified project currently being proposed is inconsistent with the project that was given approval by the City of Pasadena in 2002.
The Buchanan/Perkins/Symonds Limited Partnership applied for permits in 2000 to gut Pasadena's historic Raymond Theatre and convert it to a mixed-use housing project. All City decision-making bodies denied approval of the project until the City Council granted approval in 2002. Immediately following that decision, Friends of the Raymond Theatre and Forecast Foundation filed separate lawsuits against the City of Pasadena. These lawsuits are now awaiting hearing by the appellate courts.
The project resurfaced in February 2004 when the Buchanan/Perkins/Symonds Limited Partnership chose to gain permits to start construction before the appellate court decision was rendered.
The City of Pasadena Design Commission found the project to be radically modified from the original project City Council approved in 2002. The Design Commission requested the developers make changes so the project would remain consistent with original approvals. Instead, the developers immediately appealed to City Council, where Design Review was approved and the project found consistent.
