The project, located at 1040 N. Las Palmas Ave., would include the addition of a 100,000-square-foot office building, a multi-level parking garage and construction of a second level to an existing surface parking lot.
Adding a second deck over the parking level at Las Palmas and Barton avenues, also known as Lot E, would “relieve parking on Lot B where most crews and business employees park,” said Tim Mahoney, Hollywood Center Studios executive vice president and chief operating officer.
The motion was passed with certain requested conditions, including: downward lighting, a lighting plan, a security contact for residents who live on Barton Avenue, the addition of bike parking, having no south turns from the parking garage onto Seward Street, and the addition of a stop sign at the intersection of Wilcox Avenue and Romaine Street. Another stipulation was honoring the studio lot’s history.
With the lot’s history dating back to 1920, board member Laurie Goldman said she wants to make sure that fact is recognized.
“I love the project, and I’m glad you’re doing it,” Goldman said. “I’m concerned about the historical significance here.” Patch – Hollywood -(Full Story)
