BEVERLY HILLS—The Beverly Hills City Council will discuss initiating an informal public outreach to gather community feedback on a proposed project by Townscape Partners and Gehry Partners, Frank Gehry’s architecture firm.

According to a press release from Therese Kosterman, Public Information Manager for the City of Beverly Hills, council will discuss a public review process where the project proposal will be presented to the community at a series of informal public meetings. The goal of the meetings is to determine community feedback before presenting a formal City review on the project.

The project involves a mixed-use development of City-owned property in the Entertainment Business District, bounded by Foothill Road, Maple Drive, Alden Drive and the alley north of Burton Way. Developers have asked for a request for proposal (RPF) process to select a ground-lease development tenant.

Current uses of the property include the future site of the dog park, the shallow ground water wells under construction, and property leased to Lakeshore Entertainment and the City Employee Credit Union.

The Study Session starts at 2:30 p.m. on Tuesday, February 2 in City Hall Council Chambers. A staff report will be available Friday on the City’s website.
