Vacant Lot at Corner of Lincoln and Altadena Up for Sale

The commercial lot has been vacant for years, but under new ownership could possibly be developed.

A vacant commercial lot with a partially constructed building at the northeast corner of Lincoln Avenue and Altadena Boulevard has been put up for sale.

The lot, which over the years hosted various small businesses--and, at one point, a church--has been sitting in its current state for six years.

Doug Colliflower, an Altadena Town Council member who also sits on the Chamber of Commerce board, noted at Tuesday's meeting that the building has finally been put on the market.

The 15,000-square-foot lot .  As late as 2010, as a place to relocate its Pasadena-based high school.  The school has since signed a five-year-lease at another property in Pasadena.

The property is listed for sale by the CBRE real estate company, but a search of the company's website produced no online listings in Altadena.

There are many businesses I would like to see there, but I just don't think there is enough traffic in the area to make a business viable. It is rather out of the way, even for those who might patronize the new Walmart supermarket.

Dunno if it's an impactful number or not, but I checked the traffic counts at that intersection at this website. http://ladpw.org/tnl/trafficcounts/ Type in Altadena Drive for the street and Lincoln Ave for the cross street. Should generate a 2 page report covering traffic counts from 2006-2010.

FWIW, change the street parameters to Lincoln Ave and Figueroa (future Walmart site) and you'll see how the traffic count there is 2x of Lincoln/Altadena Dr.

Travis- uh yes. The Building Code has been revised twice since the now expied permits were let. The last revision on required steel placement and concrete size of footings and foundations was quite severe. The Job was shut down due to foundation questions specifically steel placement, under the OLD more lieniant code. It should not even with a radiographic inspection of the steel pass the present code at this point
