The Hollywood Millennium project has been green-lighted by the L.A. Council despite concerns raised that the “project’s proximity to a major fault line” is a major concern.
The L.A. Council was unanimous, 13-0, in voting to build the mixed-use skyscrapers around the Capitol Records building located in Hollywood, California. While the L.A. Council approved the initiative to bolster moneymaking opportunities for the community and the city … there are many that are forecasting more potential gloom than boon from the deal, the L.A. Times reports.
The project's developers say extensive testing has shown that the complex would not be built on an active fault. They pointed out that they will have to secure permits from the city's Department of Building and Safety before any construction can begin. Department officials say they have asked the developer to conduct additional seismic tests to ensure the safety of the site.
