Beauty Bar’s getting a new neighbor! Mission Loc@l reports that Furniture Center will close within the week, to be replaced as soon as possible by a community-oriented non-profit citadel of sorts. Reader Mitch hipped us to the story, saying:
i met with Luis Granados, who is Director of MEDA, who are the “anchor occupant” and driving this real estate deal….he’s a really cool guy and MEDA are focused on economic AND asset development, which is awesome. they’re a very interesting, long standing group in the hood. i don’t know that much about the other groups…but from the websites they seem like exactly the kind of services folks in the hood could use…and have more accessible.
Granados said there are plans not only to move all these groups in, but to improve the property, put murals on the side, plant trees, etc.
All in all a great thing for everyone.
