Tear It Down for a New Downtown

Desert Sun

Today the Desert Fashion Plaza, an old, empty building that's been sitting around vacant for years on the prime corner of downtown Palm Springs at Tahquitz and Palm Canyon went under a christening of its destruction. It was the initial demolition of the horrid property that's been annoying city residents and officials seemingly forever.

It's going to be a slow process to get the new property going--something like an opening in 2014.  In the meantime, by the end of next month you will be able to see the modernist Palm Springs Art Museum from the corner of Tahquitz and Palm Canyon when the building is expected to be finished being torn down.
