CIM Group files EIR to reopen controversial Sunset Gordon tower

Hollywood apartment building has sat empty since 2015

The troubled Sunset Gordon tower is inching closer to filling up its 299 apartment units, which have been vacant since 2015 — when a judge forced 40 residents who had just moved in to leave.  

Developer CIM Group filed a draft supplemental environmental impact report with the city planning department Thursday to try and reopen the 22-story property and an adjacent public park, Curbed reported. Sunset Gordon finished construction in 2014, but its permits were retroactively revoked in 2015 after a judge ruled city officials improperly allowed CIM to demolish the Old Spaghetti Factory restaurant on the site. 

The draft proposes a modification to the site’s parking structure that would add 19-feet, which would be covered with plants. It would also add 128 parking spaces, in addition to the existing 428 spots, according to Curbed. CIM must file a final EIR before it can receive permits.

When city building and safety officials kicked residents out in 2015, they said they won’t renew the property’s certificate of occupancy until the project goes through the environmental review process again. [Curbed] — Subrina Hudson
