As the city?s new Town Center takes shape on the northeast corner of Foothill Boulevard and Angeles Crest Highway, the southern side of the boulevard also is getting ready to be transformed into an aesthetically pleasing pride of the community. Plans for the construction of the new Flintridge Bookstore and Coffeehouse recently received approval by the city of La Cañada Flintridge?s design commission. A clock tower and contextual hybrid style brick and glass structure with landscaping that coordinates with the surrounding facilities will replace the old gas station structure and parking area now leased for Christmas tree sales.

Four months after the horrific fatal crash at the intersection of Angeles Crest Highway and Foothill Boulevard, Foothill Bookstore and Coffeehouse is putting together the pieces of its battered building and preparing for a grand re-opening Aug. 1. The runaway big rig truck that crashed through the front of the store on April 1 destroyed about 50% of the books in the building. However, the store opened for business again within days, selling items out of two trailers in the back parking lot. Those trailers are going away this week and staff at the store is excited to begin to get back to normal, said Sandy Willardson, marketing director at Flintridge Bookstore and Coffeehouse.

Men stood ready with hoses to spray down the dust early Tuesday morning as a mighty dozer broke through the walls and roof of the small glass, brick and steel former flower shop near the intersection of Angeles Crest Highway and Foothill Boulevard. The crunch of metal, crackle of breaking glass and hum of the bulldozer made an eerie combination as general contractor Dale Thomas watched his crew of workers demolish decades of La Cañada history in preparation for a new facility set to educate and empower new generations of La Cañadans.
