March 13, 2017: Since I started Gem City Images way back in 2007, the photos posted here have been (almost) exclusively of Monrovia. All my other photos have been posted to various social media sites like Flickr, Instagram and Facebook.

While that seemed like a good idea, in reality it led to a lack of consistency that was frustrating for me and made it hard to follow along with the latest photos.

So, starting now, Gem City Images will no longer be exclusively Monrovia. If you still want to see Monrovia only, you can always click the "Monrovia" label on the right side but hopefully you'll follow along for the whole experience.

Even though Gem City Images refers to Monrovia, I decided to keep that as the blog name. No matter where I go, The Gem City is where it all started.

316 S. Myrtle Avenue - A Look At The Future

The upper photo is of the former Sell's Furniture / Patty's Antiques (and, I'm sure, others) building located directly across from Library Park that has been vacant for a while now.  The bottom photo is an enlargement of the image on the top of the building and, I'm guessing, the plan for the location.  Nice looking building.  Possibly retail space on the ground floor facing the street.  Office space for the rest of the building.

If the new building is shown facing Myrtle Avenue, what happened to the businesses to the north and south?

This block was included for possible redevelopment as part of "Vision 2015" (pages 17 - 19 specifically).  Now that there is no more redevelopment agency, how does that affect projects on this block and "Vision 2015"?

I'm always curious about new developments, if anyone has any details about what's going in here, I'd love to hear it.
