Action Item for This Week: Today, we have an opportunity to replace a parking lot with 180 apartments homes.
A plan to redevelop a former Vons at Santa Monica Boulevard and Barrington Avenue has taken a key step forward with the publication of the project’s final environmental impact report.
The 3-acre site, currently serving as surface parking, is slated for the construction of a five-story building featuring 180 studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments. Of those apartment homes, 20 will be set aside for very low-income households, and all of them will be above a 24-hour grocery store, restaurant, and office space.

Housing Bill Update
AB 1482, which would restrict rent increases on certain properties to an average of about 10 percent a year and prevent landlords from evicting tenants with no cause, passed out of its first Senate committee hearing. Thank you to all of our members and subscribers that helped advocate for this!
