The "Harbor Hills" shopping center on Harbor Blvd between Las Palmas Drive and Imperial Hwy is deteriorating, but it is right next to homes that cost $2 million and higher. It is within a mile from St. Jude Hospital and right near Best Buy and other major stores, but the place is falling apart!

So I don't know what's going on. Is this shopping center too costly to tear down because of some endangered species living inside the cracks in the walls? Is the limited parking on the curvy hill the main problem discouraging investments to make it nice?

When I was a kid I remember my 9 year old friend stealing candy from Frank's Liquor. Maybe that drove the liquor store out of business.

Radio Shack was there for ages, until they left sometime around year 2000.

Now it's just Vista Paints, an Emergency Pet Clinic, and some Mexican Restaurant that I've never been to (I wonder what's inside). The rest of the units are vacant like a ghost town.

This shopping center needs a serious rescue. There is a lot of money right next door, all those doctors living in the houses nearby so I'm sure the businesses would do well if this place was fixed up.
