      Desert Sun: "Former Don the Beachcomber home being re-envisioned"

      The sprawling, mid-century modern complex at 140 Via Lola in Palm Springs is in the throes of a renaissance.

      The property includes a long, rectangular, glass-facade building that faces Palm Canyon Drive and houses four — soon to be five — businesses and a handful of vacation rental apartments on the second floor, above the retail/restaurant level.

      Behind the building, extending west on Via Lola, is a sparkling swimming pool and more apartment units — 38 in all.

      The street-facing building — former home of Don the Beachcomber, one of the many Polynesian-style dining establishments opened by Ernest Raymond Beaumont Gantt, known as the founding father of tiki restaurants, bars and nightclubs — is being re-imagined by the owners of Palm Springs-based H3K Design.
