Rick Caruso is eyeing a mall-connecting trolley. Our sister site Curbed LA reveals that the mastermind behind the bustling shopping center and the Americana "wants to extend the trolley line that runs through The Grove into a two-mile loop down Third Street to the Beverly Center, and down Fairfax to LACMA and the Miracle Mile, at a cost of $80 to 90 million." He believes the initiative would decrease traffic and help LA compete with rail streetcar cities like SF, Portland and Seattle. It would sure help the inevitable parking headache. [Curbed LA]
