Millennium Hollywood Project Faces Obstacles
Posted by Chet Kincaid on Jul 24, 2013 - 7:53:58 PM

HOLLYWOOD HILLS—On Monday, July 22, Robert Silverstein, attorney for Communities United for Reasonable Development, spearheaded an opposing gathering against the Millennium Hollywood Development project. The gathering occurred near the Capital Records Building.

Due to a complaint by Silverstein's clients, the California State Board for Professional Engineers and Geologists launched an investigation into two engineers for the Millennium Hollywood Project.

"That investigation is in response to our formal complaint that the engineers distorted their technical reports to hide the existence of a Hollywood earthquake fault..." stated Silverstein.

The mega project is suspected of being constructed on major earthquake faults. This would fall under the Earthquake Fault Zoning Act of Alquist-Priolo.

Despite the opposing efforts of Silverstein and his clients, at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, July 24, the Los Angeles City Council approved the Millennium Hollywood Development project with a 13-0 vote.

The project is said to heavily benefit from the city zoning laws that allow high density projects in transit hub areas.

The one-million-square-foot proposed project will be located on Vine Avenue. The project will alter the Hollywood skyline, consisting of two skyscrapers, one standing at 35 stories tall and the other at 39 stories tall. Both skyscrapers will sandwich the Capital Records Building. The project will consist of 400 residential units, 200 luxury hotel rooms, a fitness club and office space.

The project has overcome its first hindrance, but that was only a vote in support of the project's concept. Luke Zamperin, spokesman for Department of Building and Safety stated the project's developer still has to be approved by the city's engineering staff which issues building permits.

The commencement of more geo-technical studies will occur as stated by city council members.
