“Not Just Any “Run-of-the-Mill-ennium Project”. This proposal is insane” !!

WE, the citizens, tax payers and voters of Hollywood have spoken about how WE feel about Millennium’s Towers.   After all, we’re only the ones that live here.

 

      • “This proposal would unleash a wall of buildings that dwarf the hills. Be very aware of the essence, soul, and character of Hollywood known around the world. It is worth more per square foot developed intelligently than these monuments to shorter term profit and quick tax base increase. LA is not any other city and Hollywood defines LA, so let’s keep it, use it, and develop it intelligently. This is not just any “Run-of-the-Mill-ennium Project”, this proposal is insane.”   -Ted    (AR0029113)
      • “I am vehemently opposed to the Millennium Project and disgusted by the impacts delineated in the report.”  -Debbie (AR0029117)
      • “I am herewith informing you of my concerns for 40+ story tall high risers in the Hollywood area. They would be out of proportion, absolute eye-sores (from all directions), and most of all, causing a complete traffic chaos, way beyond what is already becoming a very congested area.   Please do not allow a “Manhattanfication of Hollywood”!!!!”   -Sabine  (AR0029119)

      • “This continues to be something that boggles the mind. The city council is in cahoots with developers with no regard for public support, quality of life or safety. On it’s face it cannot work and will become a living nightmare.   Shame on the city council. It is disgusting.” -George (AR0029120)
      • “This so-called “Plan” is totally inadequate ……. a monstrosity of a building …. and creates traffic problems that will choke this area of Hollywood to death ….” -Bryan (AR0029121)
      • “Are you kidding me?” -Jack  (AR0029123)

      • “As a longtime staff member at AMDA College and Conservatory of the Performing Arts, I am greatly involved and engaged in the welfare of our school and our students.   The Millennium Project poses significant disadvantages to our college.” -Mary Ann  (AR0021709)
      • “This is a travesty on the landscape!  These buildings are completely out of scale for anywhere in LA, not to mention the historic neighborhood of Hollywood. You owe it to those you serve to revisit the building of such architectural ugly structures and the ethically challenged glad-shaking deals you’ve been making on behalf of those you serve. It’s truly disgusting.” – Barbara (AR0029332)
      • “There are already to many empty buildings unoccupied in the Hollywood area to consider adding more. The streets are already over crowded with cars most of the day. The pollution potential is horrifying.” -Scott (AR0029376)

      •  “I want to submit my extreme disapproval of the Millennium Hollywood Project, specifically the height of the towers.  This plan is obscene.” -Katrina (AR0029284)
      • “The scale of this project cannot be supported by the infrastructures we currently have. The scale of this project will dwarf the existing historical buildings and in particular Capitol Records making. I am NOT opposed to development but I am opposed to this project which is out of step with sensible thoughtful community sensitive planning.” -Anne (AR0022164)
      • “Please note my strong, loud and continuous objection to the expected actions of the LA Planning Commission to simply rubber-stamp the planned Millennium Hollywood project.    The size and traffic impact of this project has simply been ignored.”  -Mary (AR0022241)

      • “It is beyond my comprehension how “Millennium Project” could be a reasonable idea. And I fear, a small minority of people with “big dreams” and commercial agendas who don’t live in the area are going to have greater input in discussions than the people who stand to be negatively impacted. And, as usual, it does not seem that comprehensive and detailed impact studies have been conducted and/or provided to residents.” -Deborah (AR0024316)
      • “We are fed up with the corruption and horrible direction in Los Angeles. We are taking names and holding people responsible for these situations.” -Gary (AR0024321)
      • “…It is important that the rights of current residents are preserved and that the historic nature of the area be maintained. The City of Los Angeles, while needing to promote business, has an even greater responsibility to protect the rights and quality of life of individual citizens of the city and to protect the historic nature of Hollywood. Therefore, the proposal to remove the height limitation must be rejected.” -Gary (AR0024318)

      • “We do not have the infrastructure in our small town to provide traffic relief for this many added people. This isn’t the project for our city.” -Dean (AR0031439)
      • “I feel that building any more high rise buildings and/or any more high density bldgs, will make life in Hollywood worse than it already is due to the congestion & lack of parking for cars. Also, who will benefit from this?? .. Definitely not the people living in Hollywood.!!!!” -Shelley (AR0024336)
      • “What about traffic and parking? What about our views? Just exactly who benefits from this new center? It is unfair to the tax paying residents of this area to have this monstrosity crammed down our throats.” -Emily (AR0024337)
      • “The size of this project, the traffic during construction, the increase in population will very negatively affect the lives of those already living in the community. I vehemently oppose this project’s approval.” -Imraan (AR0024345)
      • “Planning for Hollywood has gone MAD. This is insane and ill-considered development. STOP before you are disgraced as hateful, greedy, growth-at-all-costs developers.” -Jean (AR0024357)
      • “I am very concerned about the Hollywood Millennium Project, it will dramatically increase congestion and traffic in Hollywood, adversely impact parking and disturb the historic skyline of Hollywood.” -JP (AR0024369)

      • “No one in our intimate Hollywood Hills community wants these built. No one !” -Sal (AR0024396)
      • “We moved from New York to LA to avoid the skyscrapers!” -Christina (AR0024400)
      • “One of the beautiful enjoyments of living in Hollywood, was seeing those gorgeous hills while you were driving or walking about. This is a distasteful project. lacking insight or forethought as to the impact it will have on the area, its residents, and Hollywood in general. There is no need to tum Hollywood into Manhattan. It’s CALIFORNIA!!” -Suzanne (AR0024333)

      • “This is just such a large project, and as you know from past experiences the City of Los Angeles has made many knee jerk decisions, without the input of the public, that same public that put you into office to begin with.” -Mark (AR0061777)
      • “We do not have the infrastructure to support this, not the roads, not the parking, not the sewer lines.” -Jeffrey (AR0061784)
      • “I am absolutely opposed to the idea of building any more buildings in Hollywood and certainly not skyscrapers at Vine and Hollywood — close to the Capitol Records building.  This is not needed in any shape or form as the buildings in the area now can not even be sold or rented. This is truly careless and thoughtless thinking on the cities behalf.  Our lives are already being made difficult enough with the amount of traffic that we now have to deal with.  As soon as I can I am planning on leaving this area as I truly feel that our community is not being protected or managed well.” -Olivia (AR0061797)

      • “The size of this Monster project is insane and will not only impact our traffic and make the congestion here even worse, but Views of The Hollywood Hills FROM Hollywood and FROM The Hollywood Hills of Hollywood and Downtown will be obstructed. Our community wants to have a say and input and honestly cant quite figure out why ALL HOLLYWOOD HILLS COMMUNITIES were NOT informed of any meetings regarding this project.” -Ann (AR0061807)
      • “I just can’t imagine how this neighborhood can absorb more cars and congestion, without it being very stressful, annoying and inconvenient. The size of this project is just.. .. well … astounding! It’s bigger than Century City! To build this kind of project right at the foothills is just way out of sync with the area. High rise buildings this close to the hills takes away from the California look of the area. Do we really need to build on every square inch…” -Suzanne (AR0061798)
      • “Franklyn Avenue, a virtual one lane boulevard letting out onto the 101 freeway, is already impossibly congested. This area simply can’t support the extra parking and traffic congestion. I understand this is revenue for you, but I beg you to consider the ramifications as if you were living here, trying to get in and out of your home.” -Sheran (AR0061814)
