LA Times moving to El Segundo

    The new home of the Los Angeles Times will be at 2300 E. Imperial Highway in El Segundo.

    A spokesman for Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong, soon to be the newspaper's new owner, said The Times would relocate to that address permanently sometime before the end of June, when the lease at its longtime headquarters in downtown Los Angeles expires. Employees will move into a 120,000-square-foot building already on the site, at the intersection of Imperial Highway and North Douglas Street.

    The building is currently being reconfigured to house a newsroom spread across multiple floors as well as a cafeteria, a museum gallery, a retail shop, multimedia studios and event spaces, Soon-Shiong said Friday during an interview. The Times has been at its current location in downtown L.A. since 1935. But it became a lessee in 2014 after Tribune Co., a previous owner, spun off its newspapers — without their real estate — into a separate business unit. Then, two years later, Tribune Media Co. sold the iconic Art Deco building to Canadian developer Onni Group.

    I've actually never been to LA but isn't this a little ironic? Didn't the Chandlers use the Times for all those years as a cheerleader for their interests downtown? And now their final legacy is gone?

    The timeframe of the move was announced last week, yet I remain shocked that the entire office is moving before the end of June. They'll do that AND manage to put a major newspaper out every day? Sounds like the next 10 weeks will be a ton of fun.

    Particulary since the sale has yet to be finalized. I guess the move will happen even if the sale collapses.

    Anyone have any Otis Chandler stories?
    Was he the real deal, or is that just the legend?
