WeHo Residents Watching the Clock on Walgreens Project

New, 41 comments

That group of West Hollywood residents fighting that proposed 28-unit, five story mixed-used development (there'd be a Walgreens in the project) at Santa Monica Boulevard and Crescent Heights Boulevard, posted an update on their official blog last week indicating the developer received an extension from the city:

"For months the City of West Hollywood has been waiting for the developer of the embattled Walgreens mixed-use project to sign the contract for the Environmental Impact Report and to fund the effort. It recently sent a letter to the developer giving them a February 6, 2009, deadline. The developer requested an extension and a meeting with City officials to discuss anticipated project revisions. The City granted that request and extended the deadline to March 6, 2009. If the developer does not sign the contract and fund the EIR by that date, the project will be withdrawn by the City of West Hollywood."The blog is worth visiting just to look at the running clock counting down till March 6. For those just catching up, the project is a traffic nightmare waiting to happen, according to some local residents. Replacing a strip mall—best known for its Tasty Donuts tenant--the project has raised major ire among some West Hollywood locals. [Rendering: Lorcan O’Herlihy Architects]
