BUDOKAN OF LOS ANGELES:
More than 90 of the $24 million needed to build a sports complex in Little Tokyo has been raised, according to nonprofit developer the Little Tokyo Service Center.
The Budokan of Los Angeles would rise at 237-249 S. Los Angeles St. and include a two-court gymnasium. There would also be a rooftop terrace, outdoor event space and community rooms. The complex will host volleyball and basketball games, as well as martial arts lessons and tournament and other activities, said fundraising director Mike Murase.
