I was just considering LA County. Orange County beach cities are very NIMBY. Huntington Beach especially with their agenda 21 conspiracy theorist planning comissioner who just had to resign over comments he made about Islam. In Newport Beach there's a fight over a 26 story tower right now.

Then Venice, Marina Del Rey and San Pedro. Two of these already have some small highrises but all could use some more.

Way overdue skyline encroachment...but more flat roofs. Ew ick. I do like the compensatory staggered motif, tho. This project shows how it can be properly done.

Wasn't there a recent city ordinance (whatever the word is) putting the kibosh on that?

This is a great addition which will really stretch the skyline south.

Santa Monica??????

Wasn't an iconic Gehry-designed 21 story condo proposed there recently, and what became of that, first high rise in Santa Monica since 1970?

And if there's been no high rises added since 1970, what masochistic developer would want to propose building even a mid-rise in that city?

Anti-development, anti-density Nimby's can even be found 10-20 miles east of the coastline! Curiously, I rented a car to explore the suburbs of the eastern area of L.A., hoping to find some satellite city, with a true viable downtown, with housing. Didn't find it in downtown Azusa, El Monte or Ontario, or Riverside for that matter. What gives? Ontario Azusa and Ontario has possibilities to become real satellite cities.

I say let's hurry, hurry, hurry and get all those proposed high rises built in downtown L.A. before the Nimby's start growling in DTLA! (Nope! That building is going to block my view!)
