Pasadena Skyscraper Headed For Demolition

For decades, the north side of Pasadena served as the city’s heart — with convenient access to places like City Hall and the library and attractions like the Capitan theater and Pasadena Town Square Mall — and looming above them, since 1963 at least, was the Pasadena First State Bank building.

That decline is largely the reason the building’s life will soon come to its inevitable end, as it is slated for demolition, likely within 60 days.
