I am sure you’ve noticed the construction happening at the Montana Avenue Wholefoods near our office. Unfortunately, it is not the new swim-up bar, nor the build-your-own-burger addition we suggested. Rather, the construction is to bring the parking lot up to current city requirement standards and should take a few weeks. In the meantime bring your earplugs while perusing the organic produce.
This week brought a number of high-priced, high-end listings. Dig into your Santa Monica Dirt below.
