The redevelopment plans moved forward with Taylor’s team last July when the City Council asked his team to rebuild the 800 block. It also named a group headed by developer Bay Miry to redo K Street's 700 block.
Government funding for this project and others around the state halted earlier this year when Gov. Jerry Brown threatened to do away with local redevelopment agencies. Cities later sued, saying Brown's plan is unconstitutional. The state Supreme Court has blocked the agencies' shutdown while it reviews the suit.
The project for the 700 block of K Street is still moving ahead with construction scheduled to start early next year.
