Does this building still exist?
Unfortunately it does not. It's one of the buildings that was torn down in the name of "redevelopment," and in its place the horrible Plaza Pasadena shopping mall was built and opened in 1980. In 2001 or 2002 the Plaza Pasadena was demolished and in its place is now the Paseo Colorado mixed-use development; a better development than what it replaced, but of course it's not a replacement for the nice old buildings that were torn down.
