A proposal to erase 21 single family structures in this location tucked away beneath Sunset Plaza. How could this be happening given the owner is the much credited Montgomery Family that has kept the much admired Sunset Plaza in tact as a legitimate part of Sunset Blvd’s historic past. A bit of a travesty IMHO.

Traffic is going to be an even worse nightmare. It’s getting to the point that only people who work from home, or can walk to their jobs can have any joy in life.

DUH! northeast corner of Santa Monica and Crescent Heights!!!! how about the fiasco on the opposite southwest corner! What, and when, will that real estate’s chemical spill ever be remediated? and what monstrosity will be built there? The traffic is already a nightmare on Crescent Heights to/from the Valley on Laurel Canyon, A seven-story, 82,510 sq. ft. mixed-use building containing all sorts of things but little to NO low income housing!

With all these crazy high-rises being built, it’s starting to look more like Japan than L.A. The only thing missing is Godzilla.

Holloway can be a traffic nightmare. Adding this will only exacerbate the situation.

What is the legal difference between 16 affordable housing units and this:
 16 income restricted units?

They’re restricting people that make over the amount of an income threshold. If you make over the amount you are not eligible. Some say tomato some say tomahto.

As much as I love the Holloway site in it’s current state, it’s a little disingenuous to call it residential. It’s pretty clearly 100% commercial space in residential buildings, so the gain in residential units make it worth the redevelopment. A shame we aren’t building more essential infill housing elsewhere that we could argue for keeping this for its character.

Without erasing neighborhoods how is it possible that Pasadena is able to progress and build new residential and commercial projects? They are governed by the same HHA mandates and have access to the same wealth of appropriate architects that West Hollywood does so please Mr. Seymour, tell us why there is such a vastly different result?

A truly low bar. Just because it may be possible to build perfunctory, opportunistic structures in the most visible locations doesn’t mean they should be built. The contest between adding glorified sardine cans to the neighborhoods rather than consideration to the quality of life winds up again with HHA being the chief generator. Kiss the neighborhood good bye or take a stand with enough is enough. There actually are many architects in LA that could design buildings complementary to the respective neighborhoods but the developer has perhaps not investigated that aspect and grabs the low bar for his opportunity to… Read more »

Approved developments such as 8150 Sunset are being used in the current rendition of Monopoly where as developers are trading in entitlements. Most recently on the list, the ersatz Palm Ave. Senior Care Center which was marketed as a Memory Care Center and approved by those with deficient memories aka a wolf in sheep clothing.
