More than 500 union members gathered outside the World Trade Center on Thursday to protest a decision by the building's owner to award a renovation contract to a non-union construction company. Bill McCarron, a business agent for Carpenters Local 1506, said that union carpenters had previously worked on trade center projects. Now, McCarron alleged, owners of the building "are taking advantage of hard economic times and hiring non-union companies that undercut union contractors."

What went wrong with the World Trade Center in downtown Los Angeles? The project has stalled and sputtered ever since it was first conceived in the 1960s. City officials originally planned a world trade facility as a high-rise office-hotel (with 1,000 rooms) on land east of the Los Angeles Convention Center. Those plans were scrapped in 1973, however, because of lack of interest from developers, who claimed that interest rates were too high and that downtown was overbuilt.

A marina and the five-story Tokai Bank Building on West Coast Highway near Newport Boulevard in Newport Beach will be renovated and the building converted to offices, while the marina will become a private yacht club. The project is a joint venture between Haseko (California) Inc.--the Los Angeles-based arm of a Japanese real estate company--and Language Services West Inc., a Tokyo language instructor. The project, which will now cost far more than the $2.3 million originally estimated, is scheduled for completion in the fall.
