Time magazine recently named John Kaliski of Los Angeles one of this country's 50 most promising leaders under age 40. A quick spin through his resume makes you wonder why. Here's a guy, 38, trained at Yale, all the right credentials, allegedly a force in the architecture world--and without a building to call his own. Question: "Mr. Kaliski, isn't it odd that you're a respected architect, yet you haven't designed or built a thing by yourself?" "Untrue," he says with a smile.

MENTION single-room occupancy (SRO) hotels and most of us imagine aging firetraps infested with rats and drug dealers, where the working poor pay high rents for leaky rooms. Fortunately, not every SRO is a slum. While Los Angeles and other large cities struggle to upgrade old SROs, San Diego has broken new ground, figuratively and literally, by offering low-interest loans and flexible planning approvals to bring innovative private developers into the market.

John Chase, who as a writer and urban designer championed civic space and vernacular architecture in Southern California, finding poetry in stucco-clad apartment buildings, down-market modernism and overlooked corners of the urban realm, died Friday morning. He was 57. The cause was a heart attack, said Deborah Murphy, a longtime friend and former classmate at UCLA, where Chase earned a master's degree in architecture in 1980. As urban designer for the city of West Hollywood, a job he had held since 1996, Chase coaxed architects, developers, public agencies and other groups to carve out room in their projects for civic amenities, including park space, street furniture and shade-giving trees.

Rail stations tend to enhance the value of surrounding property, real estate experts generally agree. But for most of the San Fernando Valley areas surrounding the Metrolink stations those higher values have yet to arrive.

Those proposals for the future of the now-closed St. Vibiana's Cathedral were unveiled Thursday in a report and public exhibit by the Los Angeles Conservancy and USC's School of Architecture.

At first sight, the recent selection of John Kaliski to succeed Gary Williams as the new principal architect for the Los Angeles Community Redevelopment Agency seems a surprising choice. Chosen from 120 applicants, Kaliski is young (32) and relatively inexperienced in urban design. He received his master's in architecture from Yale University only 6 years ago, and spent most of his short professional life in the Houston and Los Angeles offices of Skidmore Owings & Merrill.
