City of San Diego considers demolishing the California Theatre building

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – A major health hazard in Downtown San Diego is finally getting attention from San Diego City Hall.

Ironically, the old California Theatre building is just a few steps away from City Hall, and has been neglected for about thirty years.

The visual conditions of the building from the outside is no secret, but it only gets worse when you go in. But, nobody wants to go inside, as it has been taken over by homeless, and been a hotbed for drugs and other criminal acts.

Over the years, the building has been acquired by various developers, but none of them have followed through with the plans to revitalize the property due to various reasons.

KUSI’s Dan Plante spoke with nearby business owners, and property advisors about the neglected building and why it’s taken so long to be demolished.
