A city study released in December determined that the site at South Central’s proposed development center on California Boulevard at Northridge was ideal for residential development, but not required to meet a 2010 Los Angeles code that requires mixed-use housing within 1,000 feet of a school or other residential facility.
The current requirements, adopted in 2007, were designed to help encourage the creation of the vast majority of the new housing required to balance traffic and neighborhood density in Southern California’s booming City Hall district.
„In Los Angeles, one of the most densely populated regions in the더킹카지노 country, we have a very specific role to play in that effor우리카지노t by creating a healthy environment that’s conducive to the life cycle of our cities,“ said Robert B. Stern, chair of the Department of Planning and Zoning in the City Council, and the architect of the City’s plans.
But city planners said other factors, like traffic and housing demand, would determine whether the community center would meet state code.
While traffic is the most pressing hurdle the project now faces, the potential cost is also significant, considering the site’s potential for traffic-congestion along Pacific Coast Highway near Central Avenue.
On a night in August, construction crews in heavy protective equipment and military gear laid blocks of concrete along the nearly four-mile stretch of road, the Los Angeles Times found, clearing debris for construction equipment to install atop the construction site’s exterior. The wor더킹카지노k would likely continue into early fall, before the full community center could be built.
A city consultant’s analysis from April suggested the cost of building the building at South Central for about $12 million to $15 million — not including construction costs for storm drain, drainage, and utilities — would be far higher. For example, the cost for sewer, storm water and parking would increase by more than 400 percent, which would increase the total cost by more than $1 million.
While the study said the area could be redeveloped for commercial or residential use, the impact on traffic and traffic volume would be lessened if the new housing did not meet the 2010 city code.
