Parking Garage Din
Capitol Records wanted to leave it's iconic Hollywood building and turn it to condos back in 2006. But then the city said "no, you're so special to us, stay and prosper and keep the cultural economic engine of Los Angeles going." So Capitol agreed, but now this: "Capitol Records believes that the planned construction of a 16-story building and 240 car underground garage at 6230 Yucca Street (old KFWB radio building), will interfere with and potentially ruin the operation of the unique echo chambers and sound studios at the Capitol Records." The company believes that, based on studies, the sound quality will be compromised during and after construction due to vibrations caused by traffic. Tomorrow, supportors of keeping Capitol's sound room sound will head to the city's Planning and Land Use Management Committee (pdf) to voice their opinion on the matter. A Capitol represented told LAist they are committed to staying in the building either way, but would like to "work things out with the city."
