Half-Built Hollywood Target Moves Closer to Getting Completed

Things are looking up for the partially-complete Target at the southwest corner of Sunset and Western. MyNewsLA reports that the city's Planning Commission recommended making changes to planning guidelines in the area where the Target is that "sets up a limited area in which commercial projects no higher than 75 feet would be the rule," planning reps said. The shopping structure's 74-foot height had been the crux of the most recent argument against it; the allowed height in the area is 35 feet. The commission's actions push the long-stalled project closer toward possible completion.

The Target's been stalled since August 2014, when a judge voided the project's construction permits as the result of a lawsuit brought by noted NIMBY group the La Mirada Avenue Neighborhood Association, their lawyer Robert Silverstein, and an additional group, Citizens Coalition Los Angeles. They said that the building's height "disrupts the existing character of the neighborhood," and hoped to see it torn down. (The project was a seasoned target of neighborhood groups' lawsuits by then, having been sued twice before.) The project heads to the City Council next.
