Downtown Los Angeles’ massive Angels Landing project has hit a snag. The city says the $1.2 billion project can’t touch down without a lengthy environmental impact report.

The development team — the Peebles Corporation, MacFarlane Partners and Claridge Properties —hoped to get that by adding a shorter addendum to an existing report for the site conducted in the 1990s, according to Downtown News. The city’s Office of the Chief Legislative Analyst made the determination that a more complete and updated report was needed.

The project is slated for the corner of 4th and Hill streets at what is now Pershing Square.

The original report was conducted as part of a development plan to add the third California Plaza office tower at the site. But that fell apart during the recession in the early 1990s.

It’s unclear how long the newer report might take to complete, but they often take at least a year. The development team could not be reached for comment.

An EIR report requires the city to identify potential impacts on the environment, including car traffic, and to propose mitigation measures to resolve them.

The Angels Landing project includes main two structures — a 27-story tower, and an 88-story tower that would be one of the tallest in the western United States. The Handel Architects design also includes an elaborate public plaza that weaves through the site.

The city chose the development team in December 2017. In June, the team submitted it’s official plan for the project. Per that plan, the development includes 120 condos, 450 apartments, two hotels, a charter school, and 50,000 square feet of commercial space. [LADN] – Dennis Lynch
