DEVELOPMENT vs HABITAT IN BALLONA CREEK ESTUARY
On Wednesday, May 12, 2016, the Del Rey Neighborhood Council (DRNC) approved with conditions preliminary plans for Del Rey Pointe, a proposed multi-story residential development on privately owned land at the confluence of the Ballona Creek estuary and the Centinela Creek channel just west of the I-90 Marina Freeway overcrossing. This project, aka 5000 Beethoven, now will move forward through a lengthy City of LA planning process, which could take well over a year.
