Later today, the Central Hollywood Coalition will unveil Hollywood Pop!, a new pop-up park at the southwest corner of Selma and Ivar Avenues.

The temporary park, which will be open through the end of 2016, includes cartoon-like furniture pieces, as well as seating, tables, landscaping, shade and wayfindins signage.

The project is unique in that it is located on private property, and is seen as a potential model for expanding public space throughout Hollywood.

Hollywood Pop! was funded by the the Sunset & Vine Business Improvement District and designed by the local non-profit firm LA-Más.  Other materials were provided by Dunn-Edwards and Sunburst Rocks.

The City of Los Angeles Isn’t Creating As Much Housing As It Used To. Why?

"Starting two years ago, things started to change in the City. A series of policies were enacted that have made it much more difficult to create housing...."

If every jurisdiction in California addressed housing the way the City of Los Angeles has over the past few decades, the state would have nothing close to the crisis we have today.

In Los Angeles, planning case timelines are some of the fastest in the state. Unlike other jurisdictions, the City has honored state laws that mandate cases that conform to zoning be approved. Historically, fees have been low. The processing of permits and inspections are better than any jurisdiction I have worked in during my career.
