Koll Center promises public benefit

Published in the LA Times Daily Pilot January 29, 2019

The Koll Center Residences have been in planning for a decade. The project is poised to bring tens of millions of dollars in public benefits, like new parks, public safety and other city priorities. It is also designed precisely to what we, the people, have asked for. Its density, height, location and amenities, including a new public park by the airport, are all defined and the project passes these tests with flying colors.

So what’s the hold up? I encourage the city to advance this project as quickly as possible. We were ready to support the project in 2017 when it was first scheduled to go before the Planning Commission. We’re event more eager to support it today.
