Norton Simon Museum (1969)

411 W. Colorado Blvd.

The Norton Simon Museum is on the corner of Orange Grove and Colorado Blvd at the beginning of Old Town as you exit the Colorado Street Bridge. It was designed by the architectural firm of Ladd & Kelsey. The art museum's interior was renovated by Frank Gehry from 1996 to 1999.

Hotel Green (1898)

Castle Green

Currently known as Castle Green, this was the second building of a lavish 19th-century resort built in the Moorish style for wealthy Easterners who came to California during winter months to enjoy our moderate climate. The enclosed bridge that now ends at a small tower once crossed Raymond to connect with the first building in the hotel's complex. Architect for Hotel Green was Frederick Roehrig.

Today, Castle Green has been converted to luxury condominiums and is open for self guided tours twice a year - June and December.

Pasadena City Hall (1927)

100 N. Garfield Avenue

Pasadena City Hall Fountain

Pasadena City Hall just underwent an extensive seismic retrofitting. It's a great example of the Mediterranean style and was translated to fit its California setting by the San Francisco architectural firm of Bakewell and Brown. The impressive circular tower rises six stories and is topped by a dome which is in turn topped by a cupola that is finally topped by an urn and ball.

Upheaval in the Pasadena Real Estate Market

Late yesterday afternoon, Coldwell Banker announced that they will be closing two local real estate offices. One of the offices was a Coldwell Banker office in Old Town Pasadena on Colorado Boulevard. The other one was in La Canada.

The explanation given to the shocked real estate agents working at CB was that both offices were unprofitable.

San Marino Coldwell Banker survived the recent cuts, but the real estate agents working for Coldwell are feeling a bit uncertain about their future.

The real estate agents in both offices were given three weeks to find a new home or get a new career.
