Our New Home!
I am very happy to inform you that we vacated the church in which our administrative offices have been located for almost 40 years and have moved into our new, beautiful digs at 261 E. Colorado Blvd., Ste. 217, Pasadena, 91101.
The building is the “Pashgian Building” which is the first building due west of the old Post Office. We have 1,200 square feet at a cost of 91.5c per square foot (we negotiated the rent down from $1,300/month to $1,100 per month) on a 5-year lease. I am still amazed that we got this price at this building which is perfectly located across from the Paseo (mall in Pasadena) and just east of Old Town Pasadena, not to mention right on the route of the Tournament of Roses Parade! The phone numbers and email address remain the same.
Thanks to a generous grant from the Pasadena Community Foundation as well as generous donations of time and money from board members and our supporters, we were able to refurbish our new offices, including painting throughout and removing the unattractive carpet and refinishing the hardwood floors/putting in laminate flooring.
We have been advised by the building manager to suggest to our guests that they park at the Paseo which provides free parking for 90 minutes. There is street parking on Colorado if you can get it as well as two parking lots immediately north of the building, with the better choice being the second one (from this building as you walk north) which is across the street ($2.00 for 2 hours with no limits on “ins” and “outs”).
