The year was 2004. Martha Stewart went to prison for insider trading, Athens hosted the Summer Olympics and a 36-unit condominium project in North Hills was proposed.

Fourteen years later, Stewart has long since rebounded from that setback, the Olympics went off without a hitch, but Land Developer & Associates’ planned construction never materialized.

Now, the Woodland Hills-based firm is moving ahead with the planned development at 14801 W. Plummer Street, after the Los Angeles City Planning Department recommended it be allowed to go forward, according to Urbanize. The agency released paperwork outlining mitigation measures the developer will take to reduce the environmental impact.

The condo project would replace a pair of existing single-family buildings on 2.7 acres. It would include 90 parking spaces. The site borders the Pacoima Wash, a small creek that feeds the L.A. River. There are 28 small-lot houses planned next door and two larger projects planned in the immediate area, Urbanize reported.

Land Developer shares an office with Hospman LLC, a hospitality management company. The entity’s president is Hospman’s leader, too, Daniel Singh, records show.

Farther West along Plummer Street, a controversial condo and apartment complex is moving forward after years in the approval process. That project includes 21 townhouses and 54 apartment units on three acres of land. Locals fought the project over traffic concerns.

Developer Art Simonian is also planning a 364-unit residential complex nearby. The four-building project would reach 85 feet at its highest point. The L.A. City Council approved the work in August 2017.  [Urbanize] — Dennis Lynch
