Meeting Re: Television City's Plans for Massive Redevelopment

TELEVISION CITY PLANS MASSIVE REDEVELOPMENT


SPEAK UP NOW AND LET YOUR COUNCILMEMBER KNOW WHAT YOU THINK OF THIS MEGA-DEVELOPMENT

Dear Miracle Mile Neighbors,
 
On Wednesday, May 15 at 9:30 AM, the City of Los Angeles Planning Department will hold a virtual public hearing about the redevelopment of Television City, the former historic CBS Studios, at Beverly and Fairfax.
 
The main purpose of the hearing is to collect feedback from the public, and we urge you to call in and speak about the impacts of this massive project on our community.
 
Just as importantly, we urge you to communicate with our City Councilmember, Katy Yaroslavsky, to let her know that our neighborhood is concerned about the harm this mega-development will do to our community. 
 
HERE ARE THE FACTS:
 
TV City will be TWICE THE SIZE OF THE STAPLES CENTER. It doesn’t need to be. This is an office complex masquerading as a production studio.
 
The developer, Hackman Capital, has proposed a 1.7 million square foot studio project which is just 25% studio and 75% office compound. It has been advertised as a world-class studio. In reality, the new development would be a massive office complex with a small studio attached.
 
While some of the TVC office space is designated for studio use, 550,000 square feet is general office space that has no relation to production. Our community does not need a huge office complex and should not bear the burden of the added disruption and congestion it will cause, including a jitney making dozens of trips daily on Orange Grove to and from the new Metro Purple Line Subway stop near Wilshire and Fairfax.

REMEMBER, THE ONLY WAY TO LET OUR CITY COUNCIL KNOW HOW WE FEEL ABOUT THESE KINDS OF ENORMOUS, UNNECESSARY DEVELOPMENTS IS IF WE RAISE OUR VOICES BEFORE SHOVELS GO INTO THE GROUND!
