In AN's third annual California developer's issue, we take the temperature of new development in downtown Los Angeles and San Franciso, plotting projects recently completed and in the pipeline. The picture that emerges is almost cause for hope.
An unlikely policy tactic has helped stanch the development damage in Los Angeles: the city's 2005 ordinance targeting small lots, which enables condo-style developments on small parcels that appeal to first-time homebuyers. In Venice and North Hollywood, Los Feliz and Culver City, the city is seeing a modest growth spurt that may yet make a major difference in affordable housing. Christina Chan reads the fine print.
