After hearing more than three hours of pleas from the public to deny the project, the Calabasas City Council disappointed residents last Wednesday by approving Standard Pacific Homes' 86-unit condominium complex at the 4200 block of Las Virgenes Road. As photo simulations of the condos were shown, residents verbally objected to the sight of the Monterey-style buildings superimposed over the rolling hills currently at the site.
Resident Donna Lane spoke on behalf of the Calabasas Westside Coalition... "We're going to ask the council to ask for a final modification that will reduce the units and upgrade the project to luxury condominiums with more living space, no tandem parking and perhaps a private gated community," Lane said, "something that will enhance the entrance and make us proud."
We're with them. Tandem parking sucks. Even if you get to live near Travis Barker. We just hope the extra canyon traffic won't muck up our Malibu escape route.
