LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Opponents of a plan to build two Hollywood high rises claim city officials have known since at least last year the proposed site could be near a fault line.
The Millennium Hollywood Project – which would include 39- and 35-story skyscrapers flanking the Capitol Records building along Vine Street between Yucca Street and Hollywood Boulevard – was approved by the L.A. City Council late last month.READ MORE: Irvine Man, 67, Killed In Solo-Vehicle Crash In Tustin
Project opponents claim city leaders secretly discussed concerns about the towers being built along an earthquake fault line and failed to disclose their concerns in a previous study that showed no earthquake risks.
Attorney Robert Silverstein represents those against the project.
He released an email from a city engineer written in March 2012 which he claims shows Building and Safety officials were aware of the issue.
