The move, according to Washington, is an important step in regaining the stability LWDT lost when its former dance studio was destroyed in the 1994 Northridge earthquake.
LWDT purchased the Crenshaw Boulevard site with $950,000 in funds initially earmarked for rebuilding its previous home, which has been held up in a bureaucratic tangle since 1998 by the city's Community Redevelopment Agency, whose function is to assist neighborhoods facing economic or physical deterioration.
The CRA and the city of Los Angeles are both defendants in an ongoing lawsuit filed by LWDT that alleges that the dance company's efforts to rebuild after the earthquake were blocked in an attempt to seize the property by right of eminent domain for a planned retail development.
