Construction of Hollywood Target can proceed following law change

It’s the second coming of Target in Hollywood.

Two years after a judge ordered the construction of a Target store to be halted, the L.A. City Council unanimously voted Wednesday to overturn the decision and allow the project to continue.

In 2015, a Superior Court judge ruled that Target should comply to the city’s height limits, which dictate that buildings must be no more than 35 feet tall in the Sunset Boulevard location, effectively nixing its plans to build a 74-foot structure. The 13-0 vote Wednesday revised this zoning rule, granting Target permission to finally proceed with construction.

But critics of the project said they will continue to challenge the development by filing another lawsuit.

“Rather than change the project to comply with the judge’s orders, they just decided to change the law,” said Hollywood resident Doug Haines, who belongs to the organization that filed the initial lawsuit.

Supporters argue that the city has already lost out on tax revenue that could have been generated by the Target location. [LAT]Cathaleen Chen
