Club Fed

A brief history of two bad ideas

Speaking of which, it might be easier to extend the harbor than to move Pacific Federal Plaza. A massive dredging of the Newport Boulevard corridor up to 19th Street would create several more, much-needed yacht slips. Yes, several homes and businesses would thus be underwater—how do you like the view now, Sparky?—but the only building really worth saving is Hoag Hospital, which is perched safely on higher, methane-filled ground.

The new clubhouse and hotel are scheduled to open in fall 2001 and January 2003 respectively, so if you're a mover or a dredger, you'd better get your bids in fast.
