LOS ANGELES (AP) - Developers are planning new life for a century-old building in downtown Los Angeles - the former home of the Herald Examiner newspaper.

The Mission Revival style building with its red-tiled roof, front arches and marble-and-gold lobby has been closed to tenants since the paper closed in 1989. Since then, it’s mainly been used as a filming location.

But the Los Angeles Times (https://lat.ms/1igzGz0 ) says a New York developer, Georgetown Co., is partnering with the Hearst Corp. newspaper chain on a $40 million redevelopment project.

They plan to convert the building into 80,000 square feet of office space, with ground-floor restaurants.

Publisher William Randolph Hearst commissioned the building, which opened in 1915. The redevelopment is expected to be completed by the end of 2017.
