Say NO to Legado's project, as proposed.
Legado Development is seeking city approval to build an oversized and out of place development project in Historic Downtown Playa del Rey on the parcel known as Jake’s Lot/The Triangle, 138 Culver Blvd. one block from the beach in a Coastal Zone.
Their proposal calls for:
56 ft. height
14,500 sq. ft. of retail
2 levels subterranean parking
If approved, this project could set the precedent for Legado to develop to the same dense and oversized standards two additional parcels they own in Historic Downtown Playa del Rey.
The community has repeatedly requested that Legado perform an EIR (Environmental Impact Report) on 138 Culver Blvd. and their two other parcels. Legado has repeatedly declined.
CEQA (California Environmental Quality Act) Section 15355 (b) of the environmental statute states, “ The cumulative impact from several projects is the change in the environment which results from the incremental impact of the project when added to other closely related past, present and reasonable foreseeable probable future projects. “
This is an apt and fitting description of the projects Legado intends to build in Historic Downtown Playa del Rey and therefore, an EIR is appropriate.
We believe Legado’s project, as proposed, is in conflict with the Westchester-Playa del Rey Community Plan as it relates to preserving land use patterns and providing for a high quality residential environment. Their project proposes to put a 56 ft. high multi-use building of a scale and mass that surpasses that of surrounding residential and low rise commercial buildings, one block from the beach.
We are for reasonable, responsible and respectful development.
By signing this petition we are urging our local and state representatives to say NO to Legado’s proposed project and come back to the community with a project that the community can support.
