• Hotel Row
• Lincoln Place Lawsuit
A second hotel proposal at Brooks Avenue and Abbot Kinney Blvd. is wending its way through the approval process. The new proposal would level the Broadway Gymnastics building, and most everything else in sight, in order to build a 43-room luxury hotel plus condos and retail. A Planning Commission hearing has considered the project. Venetians should let Councilmember Bill Rosendahl know their views by calling 311 and asking for him.
The first project, on the south side of Brooks is even larger.
Lincoln Place Lawsuit
Tenants have filed a lawsuit against the city of Los Angeles and corporate-owner AIMCO in the long-running battle to save the affordable home in Venice’s largest garden apartment complex. The suit, brought under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) by Santa Monica attorney John Murdock on behalf of LPTA and disabled tenant Ingrid Mueller, says the city is illegally refusing to enforce redevelopment conditions, including comprehensive tenant protections it had worked out with the owners.
The City Attorney’s office has delayed the hearing until Aug. 16, only two weeks before the latest deadline to evict seniors and disabled tenants.
