More Quake Studies for Hollywood Skyscrapers

August 5, 2013

Los Angeles officials have asked developers of a massive Hollywood skyscraper project to conduct more studies to determine whether it’s earthquake-safe.

The request came in late July after a USC quake expert voiced concerns.

The Millennium project would build two towers of 39 and 35 stories near the Capitol Records building, creating more than 1 million square feet of apartment, office, hotel and retail space.

Dozens of neighborhood groups oppose the plan and state officials have launched their own study to determine whether a nearby quake fault is active.

The head of Millennium Partners, Philip Aarons, said that there’s no evidence of an active fault and the developer is convinced that the project is safe.
