Redevelopment in California has produced thousands of affordable housing units, parks, playgrounds and community centers, public works infrastructure, job-creating commercial and industrial projects, public transportation improvements, historic preservation, art in public places, child care facilities and numerous other projects and programs that have formed the basis for the state's economic recovery.

Wonder what restaurants might be like in the 21st century? Check out Cafe Tu Tu Tango. This Florida-based restaurant chain is making its first West Coast stand at, natch, the Block in Orange. And if this is what the future holds in store, the next century is going to be big, bright, fast and highly entertaining, if not always entirely on target food-wise. The restaurant, already quite popular, is a cavernous place with a soaring ceiling and four display kitchens, each working on a different aspect of the all-appetizer menu.

August 20, 1995 | William Fulton, William Fulton is editor of California Planning & Development Report, a monthly newsletter. His book on the politics of urban planning in Southern California will be published by Solano Press Books.
