Stop over-sized Development: Adhere to the Echo Park Community Plan & Ordinance

Stop over-sized Development: Adhere to the Echo Park Community Plan & Ordinance

      Los Angeles, CA

We ask our elected representatives to request a re-design of the ARAGON PROPERTIES LTD. Project.   The proposed Sunset/Everett apartment complex does not comply with the Standards of the Echo Park Community Plan.

At 214 units--nearly 70 Ft. tall and 823 Ft. long-- the development is out of scale with neighboring 1 & 2 story homes standing next to it.  45 Ft. is the maximum height allowed by the Plan.

-  Neighborhoods were not flyered as required

-  No Family housing or 2 BR units, only Singles/1BR

-  Only 7% low income units 

-  214 apartments: Only 17 guest parking stalls

-  No Pets or Kid-friendly grassy areas

-  70 Foot tall building stretching for 3 city blocks

This ultra-modern "Miami-Beach" development is aesthetically misplaced in Historic Angelino Heights, an area famous for 130 year old Victorian homes.

We ask that No Height Variance be granted and that the project be RE-DESIGNED to a smaller scale in alignment with the stated Programs, Policies and Objectives of the Community Plan in place.

      I've lived here for 20 + years, and now there are traffic jams at Morton and Echo Park Blvd. I don't want Echo Park to turn into the Westside and displace people who have lived here all their lives, through generations. We are already maxed out, and resources are finite. Let's just stop.

      Echo Park is a beautiful historic LA neighborhood and this project is way out of character and changes the dynamics and character of this charming community. What a shame to see a project like this follow the perfect restoration of the lake.

      Because I can see what is happening in the area and think that more thought needs to be done. Would like to see neighborhood council involvement in the approval process with public hearings held in the neighborhood.

      This development is planned directly across the street from my small business office. I'm upset to think of local businesses being pushed out of the neighborhood.
