The Los Angeles City Planning Commission on Thursday backed a controversial proposal for two 30-story residential towers in Hollywood, despite complaints from a nonprofit group next door, the Los Angeles Times reports. Commissioners said the 731-unit project would provide much needed housing on a stretch of Sunset Boulevard, the publication reports.
But the president of the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, Michael Weinstein, has vowed to fight the project.
“We intend to exhaust every possible avenue to stop this project and other similar ones which will destroy the character of Hollywood,” the publication quoted Weinstein as saying.
The proposal will go to the City Council next year.
