Members of the Eastern Columbia Homeowners Association and the Society for the Preservation of Downtown Los Angeles (SP-DTLA) suffered a setback Tuesday in their battles against Trammell Crow Residential’s Alexan South Broadway development.

The City Council’s Planning and Land Use Management Committee rejected both of the groups’ appeals to the council’s approval of the 27-story residential tower in Downtown Los Angeles. 

The city’s planning department approved the 305-unit development in July but opponents of the project quickly filed an appeal, Curbed reported.

SP-DTLA, which includes residents from the Eastern Columbia building next door, hired high-profile attorney Robert Silverstein to plead their case — that the project should be subject to a new environmental review following changes to the building’s design.

Planning staff said the addendum to the original plans filed by Trammell Crow was enough and the design changes were not significant enough to create any negative effects, according to Curbed.

The committee voted unanimously to reject the appeals. [Curbed]Subrina Hudson
