Urgent: Los Angeles County pulls a fast one on development on Via Marina re Legacy Apartments

  The Los Angeles County Department of Beaches and Harbors has just sent The Silver Strand News notice of a hearing tomorrow before the Design  regarding the controversial Legacy Partners proposal to develop a 526 unit apartment complex on Via Marina on either side of Marquesas Way. The notice arrived less than 24 hours prior to the hearing which will take place tomorrow at 1:30pm on Wednesday, January 21 at Burton Chace Park, 13650 Mindanao Way, Marina del Rey. The time of meeting means that most members of the public will be unable to attend given that it is a workday. The massing of the Legacy complex consists of 5-story structures between 55 and 60 feet high.  The project has already been approved by the Board of Supervisors and the hearing will only address changes in design. Among the  controversies surrounding the project is  the northern side of Marquesas Way which was originally and officially designated as open space. The County promised that it was to become a public park. In the current plan this parcel  now becomes part of the Legacy project. This is the result of a complex deal negotiated by the County, Legacy Partners and Samuel Hardage (Marriott Hotels) in which Legacy now shares an EIR with the two proposed Marriott hotels. The officially designated public park  on Marquesas was traded in for a small “restored” wetland park at the southern end of Tahiti Way.

    Well, I just got this this info on Wednesday evening. No chance to attend. The timing is an example of what is happening all over the Marina. We have a law suit on the Esprit II project on Parcel 11, just north of the Neptune Project

    This is just another insult in a long line of poor planning ideas for this area, obviously someone is asleep at the wheel. To allow this continued growth in this area is an assault on the once charming marina life style. It’s very apparent that pockets are getting filled, otherwise common sense and respect for the community would prevail. Shame on you money mongers!
