A proposed development surrounding a redesigned Ralphs (making it into a Fresh Fare) in Sherman Oaks looks like it's coming closer to reality. At issue for those opposing the project was the height. The city's specific plan for the area (.pdf) says buildings should be no more than 30 feet, but Ralphs wanted it up to 48 feet. Looks like 11 feet of that height has been chopped.

"After working with the Council Office and responding to the concerns from a small group of community members, the proposed Ralphs Fresh Fare in Sherman Oaks has figured out a way to lower the height on Ventura Blvd," a spokesperson said in an e-mail.
