LA Planning Commission Approves Hollywood High Rise Project

HOLLYWOOD (CBSLA.com) — The Los Angeles City Council’s Planning Commission unanimously approved a development deal that would build two new sky scrapers in Hollywood.

The commission approved the project Thursday night that would allow New York-based developer Millennium Partners to build two 55-story towers next to the Capitol Records building.

The development would contain 500 apartments, 200 hotel rooms, offices and retail options.

So far, residents have conflicting opinions.

“I wouldn’t find it aesthetically displeasing to have a tall building in Hollywood,” one man told KNX 1070.

“For some reason I don’t like it. I like Capitol Records to be Capitol Records and be the star of the show,” a woman said.

Despite the commission’s approval, city council members Tom LaBonge and Eric Garcetti oppose the project, saying it’s too big and would overwhelm the surrounding neighborhood.

The project next goes to a vote before the entire LA City Council.
