The Times reports that the Blvd6200 project has overcome the NIMBY brigade (okay, just Jim McQuiston) and will now begin pushing dirt around on two sides of Hollywood Boulevard. The City Council approved the project's Zone Change request following last month's PLUM Committee hearing which brought out scads of supporters to tell the City to hurry up and approve already.The project will provide 1,014 new apartment units, 28 live/work units, 12,000 SF of public plazas and 175,000 SF of commercial-retail space. Approx. 10 percent of the units will be "affordable". More importantly the project will be required to install new traffic signals (left turn signals, Mr. Garcetti??) at Hollywood and El Centro and Selma and El Centro, plus provide space for an entry to the Red Line on the northside of Hollywood Boulevard.
If that doesn't satiate your development appetite, we hear Westfield should be announcing its massive development plans for Warner Center very, very shortly. We'll have renderings/plans as soon as legally possible. It's really big.
