You might call it a monument to California's spirit of reinvention--a building with nearly as many lives as a cat and more connections to Los Angeles' civic culture than most politicians. In its 75-year history, downtown's Subway Terminal Building has housed the city's first underground transit terminal, doubled as a World War II bomb shelter, provided hospital care to veterans, and acted as the local office of the Department of Social Security.

Japanese real estate firm Shuwa Corp. is reviewing offers from four developers interested in buying the city block it owns at the southeast corner of Flower and 9th streets. The bidders have indicated an interest in building housing and a supermarket, in addition to other commercial uses.

A developer is spending $65 million to convert a downtown Los Angeles building where commuters used to wait for Red Car trolleys into a home for people who don't want to commute. Empty for more than a decade, the Subway Terminal Building, constructed in 1925 above the city's first subway station, is being turned into 277 apartments by Forest City Residential West Inc. Work is set to begin next month and will be completed by September 2004.

Take the increasing national trend for people to work at least part time at home. Add the long unfulfilled desire to attract more residents to downtown Los Angeles. Mix in the sad inventory of outdated, and mainly empty, office buildings.

Last August, Collins moved into the San Fernando Building, at the corner of 4th and Main streets, one of four Old Bank District buildings in downtown's historic core being converted into upscale lofts.
