CurbedWire: On top of Spaghetti

HOLLYWOOD - The Hollywood Chamber reports that the Gerding Edlen project proposed for the area surrounding the Spaghetti Factory on Sunset is moving forward. Via the Chamber: "The multi-faceted mixed-use project includes a 23-story residential tower with 301 for-sale condominiums, 40,000-sq.ft. of creative office space, 13,500-sq.ft. of ground floor retail space, and a new half-acre public park for the neighborhood. In addition, the existing Spaghetti Factory building would be preserved. A total of 508 parking stalls are proposed. Of particular interest is that about 60 of the units would be targeted at the under served mid-market segment, such as teachers, police officers, firefighers, and entry level professionals. The company has just begun the entitlement process for the project." Also from the Chamber, the Hollywood Garfield project has been approved by the City and will move forward. [Hollywood Chamber]
