Environmental Impact Report For South Central Farm Site

New, 14 comments

It's not yet official, but we're hearing that developer Ralph Horowitz has voluntarily agreed to an Environmental Impact Study on the proposed Forever 21 distribution center on the now-demolished South Central farm. Readers will recall this move delays the process of building of a warehouse on the site--and by up to nine months or a year. The LA-based company is looking to build a 643,000-square-foot warehouse and distribution complex, but neighbors have cited concerns about traffic and noise. Last week, the LA Times reported that opponents forwarded "hundreds of e-mails to the city's planning department, saying the 2,400 daily truck trips expected to be generated by the project merit a lengthier review." [Curbed Inbox] UPDATE: LA Times story on the EIR/delay is up.
