Woohoo! According to tagline reported by commercial real estate site CoStar (paywall).
It’ll be in the old Ross space (previously occupied by Borders; on Westwood Blvd. between Wilshire and Santa Monica Blvds.). I was kinda hoping it would be in the old Albertson space on Palms and Sepulveda next to the 405, but nonetheless, it’ll be a great thing for the UCLA community and the Westside community at large.
What???!!! That’s amazing! yeah, I wish it was in that old Albertson space too. Traffic and parking would be so much easier than the Ross spot. But I’ll take it!
Yah, that’s my immediate concern too. I haven’t been to that spot in ages though and can’t place the size of the lot.
Having a food court too!
How small is small? And my vague recollection was the traffic flow to get in and out was bad. But it’s been quite a while. When we lived on Sawtelle, we used to walk to that area for food, etc instead of dealing with traffic and parking.
Holy cow. Chinese, Persian, Thai, Indian, Italian, and Greek (has anyone tried the Greek place) in like a 2 block radius. And 99 Ranch + Bristol Farms + Sprouts + CVS + LADOT + great Korean mom-and-pop tailor make this, like, one of most convenient neighborhoods the universe has ever seen.
Even through they aren’t going through the requirement for in person classes for international students, if UCLA is anything like USC, a lot of the international students just didn’t leave… at ALL. It was actually really hard to get into China and India when classes ended and honestly, the students were more than happy to stay here even though things were not all that less ‘germy’ as it were. The shops at USC village and others in the area started to offer these students specific items in language and at low cost rates. Revolutionario even arranged for some food bank drop offs because the choice left them strapped a bit for cash…
