Demolition To Start on Ambassador Campus

The wrecking balls are getting ready to start demolishing the once proud monument to Herbert Armstrong.  They are starting on the South side of the campus by the old Health Center.  It will be torn down, the gardens destroyed and a four unit condo building built with underground parking.  At over 3,000 feet each you can be guaranteed these will quickly sell for around  1.0 to 1.5 million.

Ambassador West to begin construction

Ambassador West master developer City Ventures recently got permits for the first
phase of site work on the lot on W. Del Mar Blvd, just east of S. Orange Grove Boulevard,
and has begun making lot improvements, including tree relocations that comply with
the project’s Urban Forestry Plan. The firm also hired a full-time construction manager,
Ron Ewing, for the project.

This construction will destroy the Del Mar gardens, and will even eliminate the current driveway west of Manor Del Mar (359 West Del Mar).

Two building permits were obtained between 11/1/2011 - 11/30/2011

367 West Del Mar Blvd.:
Construction of a new 4-unit condominium structure at 12, 316 square feet with subterranean garage at 16,895 feet.      Valuation  $2,714,134

363 West Del Mar Blvd.:
Construction of a new six unit condominium structure at 13,056 square feet.
Valuation   $1,269, 957

Total valuation  $3,984,091

Hi Ho, Hi Ho,

proud monument to Herbert Armstrong

No great loss then.

Wonder what the condos will sell for?

Let us know when they go on the market. Not that we'd buy one. Idle curiosity is all.

MY COMMENT - And little Joey Tkach laughed all the way to the bank after cashing in on his inheritance paid for by the blood, sweat and tears of many honest, sincere good brethren and sistren of the Worldwide Church of God.

"It was like stealing candy from a baby", said little Joey Tkach frmn one of his many European vacation trips paid for by Herbert Armstrong's "dumb sheep".

The little Joey Tkach is a multi multi millionaire.

Isn't that why our parents paid tithes, offerings, special offerings, Emergency Fund, and the all important Building Fund because "time was short" - all so little Joey Tkach could be a multi multi millionaire someday?

Lake of Fire Church of God - ministering to the children of the Worldwide Church of God who grew-up listening and believing the Church's BS.

Hmmmm ...

Sort of tells you what God thinks about his college that HWA dedicated to the GREAT AND ALMIGHTY GOD!

He kind of spewed that out of his mouth, too.

It still gives me a few pangs. We all struggled an sacrificed so sincerely. Yes, we were stupid, but that never dawned on us then.

The "fruits" prove the point. It all evaporated and our efforts were for nothing in the end but the enrichment of Tkach and company.

Yet, so many didn't learn and are ready to do the whole thing over again.
