Quick Takes

L.A. nonprofit will pay rent

February 04, 2009|City News Service

A nonprofit Chicano arts center in East Los Angeles will get to stay in its landmark location for at least one more year, but it will have to pay rent.

Board members of the Self Help Graphics & Art cultural center at 3802 Cesar Chavez Ave. have negotiated what they described as a "favorable lease agreement" with the building's new owner, Piedmont Investment Co., according to a statement Tuesday from Self Help.

The agreement calls for Piedmont, which bought the building last year, to upgrade and renovate the building. The previous owner had let Self Help operate there rent-free.
