It’s Official: McCowan’s Development Limited

The L.A. city ordinance restricting development at the former McCowan’s market site went into effect Monday.

Neighbors and Councilwoman Janice Hahn successfully pushed for the measure to limit construction to three single-family homes, far fewer than the 18 condominiums the developer initially proposed.

Hahn praised the neighborhood activists who quickly mounted a grassroots campaign against the condo proposal.

“Your efforts were well organized and extremely effective and it was an honor to work in partnership with you to restrict high-density development in a single-family neighborhood,” Hahn wrote in a letter to the Vista Del Oro Neighbors Against Condos.
