Tricia Keane, Director of Land Use & Planning for Los Angeles City Council District 11 (Mike Bonin Council Member)
adds the following explanation to the approved plan:
The project that was approved was the revised project, which has 150,000 sf of commercial office, smaller grocery store (reduced by 40%), 20% affordable housing, 100 parking spaces for Expo Patrons, traffic and circulation improvements like a raised median in Bundy to prevent cut through traffic, $250K for a traffic signal at the Olympic driveway if the neighborhood wants it (subject to DOT approval), and the reconfiguration of the pedestrian island (i.e., “pork chop”) to create a larger pedestrian area at the corner and make crossing the street safer.
