Why should you watch this? Because this is happening all over Los Angeles, not just Del Rey.

Curbed LA rightly called this video, done by neighbors opposing the proposted Louise Ave. building, "brilliant." This property is the focal point of the first lawsuit in Los Angeles regarding the density bonus bill, SB1818, a law that strips local municipal zoning codes and allows higher density with less restrictions (height, setbacks). And as Curbed explains, "it's not what you think. This isn't a neighbor suing to stop development. The developer of the Louise Apartments at 12449 Louise Avenue is suing the City of LA for blocking it's project, which is permitted by State Law."
