Reform School for Sale
LA Public Library

This hunk of real estate, according to KNBC and other sources, is among the largest state properties to be placed on the open market. The General Services Department brochure on Nelles imagines "a hypothetical project that includes 300 detached residential units,

400 town homes, 20,000 sf of specialty retail and 20,000 sf of general

office."

Before

it falls into the hands of upscale developers, however, has anyone

given thought to it becoming a low-security facility for drug offenders

or other minimal-risk prisoners who are caught in the middle of the

political debate about California's overcrowded prisons? Final bids are

due November 20.
