Following that former West Hollywood resident's rant against all the development comes word (via the Mayor Jeffrey Prang's newsletter) of two proposed projects that would kill some familiar landmarks: First, a developer want to tear down the skeevy Carl's Jr. at Santa Monica and La Brea, and built a 6-story structure consisting of 184 rental units (20% affordable) and over 12,000 square feet of retail. Also proposed to be demo'd: Jon's Market at La Brea and Fountain (there's a Ralphs right across the street). Developers want to replace the market with a 6-story building with 187 rental units (20% affordable) and over 18,000 square feet of ground floor retail. More details after the jump.
