Hollywood Office At Vine And Selma Approved By City Council

The Los Angeles City Council has approved a major new Hollywood office tower after years of delay and controversy centering on dueling land appraisals, a hefty public subsidy for the developer and the future of a popular burger stand on the site.

With council President Eric Garcetti championing the plan, the council last week approved the 1601 N. Vine Office Project, at Vine Street and Selma Avenue, just south of the iconic intersection of Hollywood and Vine.
