How did the city allow the disastrous renovations of Longs Drugs happen. This building is a shining example of period architecture. One that is disappearing quickly! The city council must act immediately to halt the proposed re-design, enough with early-century, art decko design. Hasn't the battle to redevelop the theater proven that NOBODY WAnts this type of design in Alameda.
What will we do when the last pieces of the Early-60's shopping center design disappear? We've already lost South Shore Center before anybody knew what was happening. We must fight this attack on our architectural heritage.
