The East Hollywood Target super-store will be built after all. Or rather, it will be completed.

Los Angeles city officials granted approval for Target to resume work on its 200,000-square-foot project on the corner of Sunset Boulevard and Western Avenue, according to Curbed.

The location has been half-built for years amid a battle with neighborhood residents who opposed the project. The issue even made it all the way to the state’s highest court.

The store’s construction has been shelved since 2012, when the La Mirada Association Neighborhood Association sued the city over approving the project. The association charged the development had greater density than what is permitted. The Target complex will stand 74 feet high, more than twice the 35-foot height limit for retail development there.

La Mirada, represented by attorney Robert Silverstein, won that suit. But the City Council soon took matters into its own hands, passing a new law that would allow the Target to be built.

The association followed with another lawsuit, but in December, the state’s highest court affirmed an appeals court’s decision, paving the way for this week’s final approval. [Curbed] — Natalie Hoberman
