The Palazzo Westwood Project is a proposed mixed-use development comprised of 350 residential apartments (413,490 sq. ft.) and 115,000 square feet of commercial retail uses on a 4.25-acre site, located southwesterly of the intersection of Weyburn and Tiverton Avenues. The Project is proposed on a site that currently includes parking spaces, vacant areas (previously occupied by the recently demolished commercial retail building and parking spaces on the west side of Glendon Avenue), a motion picture theater, and a vacant 42-unit apartment building known as Glendon Manor (see Chapter II. Project Description, for a complete description).
A Draft EIR, dated February 21, 2002, was prepared for the Project, and was circulated for public review between February 21, 2002 and April 8, 2002. Following the circulation, extensive comments were received. Based upon these comments, and the numerous questions and issues raised, the City of Los Angeles, as the lead agency, determined that a revised EIR providing additional information and detail on the Project should be prepared, including copies of the NOP comment letters and more extensive responses incorporated into the text in various places. This revised Draft EIR will be circulated for a period of 60 days, from February 6, 2003 to April 7, 2003.
