Plans for a Target shopping center on the corner of Sunset Boulevard and Western Avenue are moving along for consideration by the Central Area Planning Commission Tuesday, points out Hollywood Unbound.
The panel will review the project's environmental impact report in which the proposal calls for a 163,862-square-foot store with an additional 30,887-square feet for smaller retail spaces in a three-level building.
The city's planning department recommends the approval with some changes including that Target build up to a maximum height of 74 feet rather than Target's request of 84 feet.
According to the report, the city has on file five letters in support of the project from residents. Two with the following points:
- The new store will positively impact this neighborhood, and will transform this corner. This corner has slid into decay because nothing has been allowed to be constructed due to opposition of people who do not live in the neighborhood.
- Currently people have to drive to other cities to shop at Target. This new store will be more convenient and will encourage people to take transit. This site is currently dilapidated and vacant. A new Target will be a major improvement to the area and would be a catalyst for change.
The Central Area Planning Commission will meet Tuesday at City Hall, 10th Floor, 200 N. Spring St. at 4:30 p.m.
