Rumblings & Bumblings Responses: Shoppers Delight

Those were the questions. And these are the best answers no money can buy. We invite you to participate with us again next week by emailing us at

1) Beverly Hills/South Robertson: We need to make a friend in Beverly Hills planning. We searched and perused endless documents but saw nothing beyond the fact that 401 S. Robertson, across from Helios House, used to be a Mobil Gas Station owned by The GRL Partnership. In November of 2006, it appears there was some kind of lawsuit where GRL Partnership sued Exxon Mobil, but it is unclear if it was related to this site.

2) Mid-City: Again, no development news, but at least we have some background. The property at the northwest corner of Venice and Arlington in Mid-City (3101 Venice Boulevard) is owned by Eden Hill Mission, a religious group. Perhaps they'll build a church and then all you churchy people will be happy.

3) Woodland Hills: So this is what we know about groceries in Woodland Hills: Vons has recently received the Neighborhood Council's approval to go into the Corbin Village Shopping Center at Ventura & Corbin. This is fairly close to their site at the northeast corner of Ventura and Topanga Canyon. Ralph's, which shares a strip mall with the old Von's just upgraded itself to a Ralph's Fresh Fare. Commenter janetplanet says that the old Vons will be flipped to a Trader Joe's. No word on 99 Ranch coming in. However, as we mentioned previously Tesco's Fresh & Easy has been shopping for locations in Warner Center. Oh, and we confirmed with the Korean contractor that the Pinkberry in the Westfield Topanga mall opens next week.
