 Construction Holmby Hills

Construction Holmby Hills

Holmby Hills HPOZ Update gives an overview of what has happened in the area regarding new construction and remodeling. There were several meetings taking place throughout July and August 2016 for discussion about the HPOZ for Holmby Hills Westwood neighborhood. HPOZ ? “Historic Preservation Overlay Zone”.(What is ICO and HPOZ ?)

Proponents for a HPOZ and Anti HPOZ residents met a few times at St. Aidan’s Church in Westwood to discuss their views. (July 14, and July 21 2016) The proponents for HPOZ have been preparing the HPOZ for this area for several years .Many residents formed a large STOP HPOZ committee. Residents expressed they had not been informed or felt misinformed about the proposed HPOZ. Over 500 residents expressed their opposition to a HPOZ. A large amount of written comments, comment cards, and verbal comments were collected and expressed at the meetings .Some homeowners created a petition and contacted their City Council. Some residents felt the restrictions violated their Civil Rights. Some residents didn’t want colors restricted. landscaping, and materials for windows to name a few objections. Furthermore other homeowners didn’t want any restrictions. Other residents felt the only way to protect the character and preserve the community would be through a HPOZ. This community came forward to take action that affects their neighborhood and its future. Value and freedom of choice is very important to the homeowners. Additionally, maintaining the character of the neighborhood and how residents will to do that must be decided.

As a result of the meetings and comments, the proposed Holmby Westwood HPOZ will not be put on agenda for the August 18, 2016 Cultural Heritage Commission hearing. In addition, it will not be put on agenda for the September 22, 2016 City Planning Commission hearing . All the input is now being analyzed .Postponing these meetings will give the Council more time to review.The current HPOZ draft (http://preservation.lacity.org/sites/default/files/Presentation_Public%20Hearing%207-28-16%20FINAL.pdf ) is a proposed guideline.

Similarly, many residents stated they do not want their rights regarding their homes determined by a committee. Furthermore, they do not want a more bureaucratic process , more fee’s, restrictions, and increased length of time for permits. Some residents felt homeowners  who have already remodeled would be more fortunate than those who contemplate remodeling and renovations in the future under the current HPOZ proposition .The HPOZ proponents feel that the guidelines can be developed to please residents.

Venice looks to adopt Mansionization rules

Another area of Los Angeles looks to adopt Mansionization rules. Venice California is a community that is so mixed with older homes, new architectural homes, small condo developments, large condominium developments, and houseboats. This community is a buzz with what to do with the building going on and the changes that could further affect the neighborhoods. While Westwood, 15 neighborhoods are under ICO with varied regulations. Holmby Hills is well underway in establishing a HPOZ. While the neighborhood has been notified, a committee is well into the planning that will soon be proposed for this neighborhood. The city officials state “Establishing an HPOZ for the area would help to further protect the historic buildings and guide change in the neighborhood. The City of Los Angeles Department of City Planning is currently conducting outreach in the development of the preservation plan.” Homeowners have concerns that they won’t have a voice in the rules the committee proposes but we will have to wait to see what is proposed in the coming months. Venice looks to adopt mansionization rules as the city allows more builders to overlook rules that have helped set in place maintaining some of the original character of the neighborhoods. It is precisely because of this mix of the new and old that gives Venice its charm. The increase in population in an already dense community will definitely continue to affect the neighborhood both good and bad.

Venice on the other hand is hearing strong reactions. Petitions are posted online, meetings are being held as the character of the neighborhoods in Venice continue to dramatically change. Venice.  There was to be “long range conservation, use and management of the natural, scenic, cultural, recreational and man made resources of the coastal zone adopted in the plan Section 30002. With prices on Abbot Kinney in the $9-10 per square foot commercial leases, Architectural homes , and more three story buildings being built along with condominium developments, the face of Venice is rapidly changing. In March of 2015 The City Council began to curb the proliferation of Mansionization in Los Angeles. The Planning department began to revise citywide rules (BMO) Baseline Mansionization Ordinance, which detail the amount of residential floor area that can be developed on a single family lot.The council approved immediate but temporary restrictions within certain neighborhoods in Los Angeles including Holmby Hills,Venice East of Lincoln Blvd , parts of Kentwood in Westchester, and Mar Vista to name a few. Considerations are being made to extend the ICO. In Question is the Specific plan and the interpretation of the small lot Subdivision Ordinance. Currently more units area being allowed on lots than the Specific Plan allows not considering enough parking. Very large buildings are being constructed which many find out of scale with the neighborhood.The community has very little time to appeal decisions of the Planning department. On Monday, April 18, 2016 there was an ‘invitation only’ meeting that did not reflect the diversity of the Venice community. There continue to be posts to the internet to alert the community of what is happening. In Westwood, planning is done, and the City assures the community it will have a voice. The hope is that those in the community who attend the next meetings with the proposals will still have a voice in what the committee of roughly 13 working with City officials comes up with. There are hints of this coming to more communities in Los Angeles as builders and residents come together with City officials to determine how much growth and construction and the limitations on what can be done take hold.

Stop Adoption HPOZ Westwood Meeting

The Stop Adoption HPOZ Westwood Meeting was held June 30, 2016. This was the first meeting held in Westwood by a collective of Holmby Hills property owners who are against having a HPOZ enacted in Holmby Hills in Westwood or learning more about the proposals being made. Residents gathered who felt they had been misinformed, or not informed about the proposed adoption of a HPOZ for their neighborhood. The proposed Westwood Holmby Hills HPOZ will contain regulations specific to the neighborhood restricting building and remodeling within the community . In the future if you want to make changes to your home you would be subject to approval from the HPOZ. Some of the concerns brought up at the meeting are the possible restrictions ,color of your home, replacing windows, replacement of doors, tree’s and landscaping, room additions, 2nd story additions etc. With the proposed HPOZ you would not just go get a building permit, you would have to go through a process of approval through the city so that what you are doing will not go against the architectural history of the neighborhood. There are good reasons to retaining the character of a neighborhood and restrict overbuilding or building in bad taste but there are other ways to achieve this preservation IE: the BMO or baseline mansionization ordinance that is being reviewed and improved is being noted by those against the proposed HPOZ as sufficient way to help impose improvements and building restrictions . The committee against the HPOZ adoption feels it will be too restrictive and hard to ever undo and end. You can read more about all these points through some of the links attached to this article. I have written articles on the subject before. This meeting was the first public meeting held to Stop Adoption HPOZ Westwood. Click here to see a video of the meeting to learn more. Ben Reznik, Land use attorney spoke to the crowd of Westwood homeowners who had gathered to address the many questions neighbors had. There is a petition circulating against the HPOZ enactment and a committee e mail formed to get more information. (kittleholmbymember@outlook.com) The current proposed HPOZ can be read here. These are all very important links to understand the proposed HPOZ and the issues against the proposed HPOZ — see all the details proposed here.  This evening, July 14,2016 is the first meeting to discuss the HPOZ draft at St Albans Church.  The Stop Adoption HPOZ Westwood Meeting group will be present to ask many questions. The pros and cons of preserving the historic value of a neighborhood versus the freedom to choose what you want to do will be discussed at the meeting and secondary meeting on July 21,2016. There are many previous articles I have posted on the subject. Whether an HPOZ will help or hinder property values in the area will continue to be discussed. Other neighborhoods including Bel Air, Brentwood, Venice etc are all experiencing similar issues as growth and development, and remodeling will continue to present issues of preservation. There are so many issue discussed in the posted links so don’t miss the opportunity to view videos and important links

New Construction in Little Holmby

New Construction in Little Holmby is increasing property value. Little Holmby is one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in Los Angeles to live in. Tucked  between Beverly Hills and the 405 Freeway, just next to UCLA, are the rolling hills and streets of Holmby Hills. Within this neighborhood there are so many different style homes and tree’s .It has remained a fairly quiet residential neighborhood surrounded by large high rises and many other communities. Westwood is neighbor to  beautiful neighborhoods like Bel Air, Brentwood, Cheviot Hills, Beverly Hills and Century City.  Westwood has within it several sub communities. Holmby Hills, containing Little Holmby, Westwood Hills, The homes South of Wilshire (that surround Fairburn Elementary) (and are undergoing many new homes being torn down and replaced alongside beautiful existing homes),  Comstock Hills, Homes near Westwood Charter. Homes in Westwood generally surround wonderful public schools that are just  one reason these communities are so desirable. If you want to buy a home in Los Angeles, these are great neighborhoods to consider. There are so many restaurants, theaters, museums, shopping, grocery stores, places of worship, parks etc. surrounding these communities.

Little Holmby is a great neighborhood to purchase a  home in Los Angeles. As with any neighborhood, older houses are often replaced with newer larger ones and alternatively homes are being remodeled. Today’s homeowner enjoys decorating and remodeling and enhancing the value of their home and environment. Westwood in general has continued to see a lot of tear down homes South of Wilshire and fewer North of Wilshire in Little Holmby. Due to recent implementation of ICO and HPOZ North of Wilshire in Little Holmby a moratorium is in place to restrict new construction while plans for a HPOZ are prepared and reviewed. This is a hot topic in the neighborhood. See some of my previous posts to learn more about Mansionization, ICO in Holmby Hills, HPOZ in Holmby Hills. There is a movement to retain the charm and quality of homes in the neighborhood which is good. Who makes the restrictions?, what they will be? and how they are enforced ?is still a work in progress. Neighborhoods and the City are engaged in these conversations throughout the city. Many in neighborhoods are just finding out details and unaware how the decisions will affect them. Therefore it is important to write about and talk about the many changes that could happen and get neighbors involved in shaping their communities.

Today’s article is to talk about some of the beautiful homes that were added to Little Holmby prior to the moratorium. As a real estate agent in the neighborhood, I can’t help but notice value’s climbing. New Construction in Little Holmby has added some interesting homes. I walk the streets and get to know the homes within the neighborhood. Over the years I note homes being enhanced whether it is remodeling, staging, additions, new construction etc. We have an assortment of Spanish, ranch, Colonial, Tudor, modern,Mid Century, etc homes in the neighborhood. Some on small lots, some on larger lots. Several pictures are included of new homes that were built over the last few years. I feel they have helped increase values in the neighborhood. Homes coming on the market today should be presented in their best form to achieve highest property values. Some homes are marketed as is to leave to the imagination enhancements the next buyer would like to do. Currently the question as to what residents will be allowed to do is being evaluated. It is important for residents to get involved in this process. While no one wants to see an eye sore in a neighborhood, thus far newer construction has added valuable homes. New contruction in Little Holmby has been a positive thing. While in the building stage these homes often seem large, once landscaping has been added , we now have higher priced real estate added to the neighborhood!!. I can see how this could be difficult if placed next to a very small home. Currently the possibility of not having new construction is possible? HPOZ can be a good thing, and it can be very restrictive so it is important for homeowners to make sure they are involved in the process that is taking place. Here are some examples of the beautiful( at least I think so) homes that were added to the neighborhood. While no one would want every home to be torn down and replaced by these large homes, there will need to be discussions to determine what will happen with this neighborhood.Many homes today that are sold have been remodeled with beautiful wood floors, updated kitchens, updated plumbing and electrical, basement rooms enhanced,outdoor spaces enhanced,and  bathrooms remodeled. Awareness and involvement is important. Please contact me for further information about homes in the area. There are three very important meetings that address the HPOZ issues coming up. Thursday June 30, 2016 Hillel House 574 Hilgard 7 p.m Community meeting. July 14, 2016 7-9 St Alban’s Episcopal Church. July 21,2016 6-7 and 7-9pm  St Alban’s Episcopal Church,

Let me help you find or sell your home. I would be happy to give you a market evaluation and advise you what you can do to enhance your home. Contact 310-383-0831  http://www.caronschwartz.com

Little Holmby homes listed over 4 and 5 million

Little Holmby homes listed over 4 and 5 million are becoming more common on the market recently. Little Holmby has always been one of the most desirable neighborhoods to live in Los Angeles. Due to great schools and central location this beautiful neighborhood with such a varied array of beautiful style homes has seen home prices of 2 and three million for years.  Many grand old homes on large lots are being remodeled and in some cases prior to the moratorium and HPOZ ICO rules being enforced, homes have been torn down and large new homes have been built. This seems to be a good thing for the neighborhood adding value to an already hot neighborhood . Little Holmby homes listed over 4 and 5 million includes more than 13 homes sold pending or active in the past 6 months!

There are more homes coming onto the market recently.  My best advice if you have a home in Little Holmby and have thought of selling would be to upgrade the systems(plumbing, air conditioning, electrical). Talk with a realtor like myself about staging or preparing your interiors to get the best value for your sale.

Today I did my weekly walk past Holmby Hills Houses and there are so many amazing unique architectural homes in the neighborhood. I wanted to share with you today a beautiful drought tolerant garden someone had planted using wood chips and lavender plants. Easy to maintain the selected plants were probably on a drip system. Using Drought tolerant landscaping and plants can be very beautiful. That same home had the rose garden lining the entry way and beautiful topiary tree’s out in front. One of the best things about Holmby Hills is the unique homes steeped in tradition. I am sharing a picture of a beautiful door with you. As I pass by, is see so many unique features, from the use of stone materials to the eclectic style from home to home that is so different. Holmby Hills houses are  Tudor, and ranch, and Spanish revival, and mid century, and English cottage, Mediterranean, Spanish, French Colonial, etc. Gardens are often kept beautifully with many varying styles of windows, and entry ways. There is good reason to want to keep the quality of Little Holmby Homes . Holmby Hills is one of those neighborhoods you have to and want to walk around in. Situated to the East of UCLA, this pocket of homes  is central to all Los Angeles has to offer. Being so close to Beverly Hills, UCLA, Bel Air, Century City , Westwood Village and freeway access you are ready to get anywhere. The public schools are fabulous and there are places of worship close by, theaters, restaurants. What more could you ask for. Oh yes, and wonderful parks. I added the best Halloween witch for fun.

HPOZ and ICO in Holmby Hills

October 8, 2015: The HPOZ and ICO in Holmby Hills is causing a stir among some residents. The meeting of the members of Holmby Westwood Property Owners Association and neighbors on October 8,2015 was held to begin discussing the prospective HPOZ for the Holmby Westwood neighborhood. The meeting was presented with the City Historic Preservation Committee in a community outreach meeting.
A presentation by the City was given to outline the future meetings that will be held to discuss more specific regulations that would govern a HPOZ should neighbors decide to approve a HPOZ. The City gave some examples of other areas of the city that have adopted a HPOZ and typical restrictions that could be imposed. There was discussion about some of the current restrictions imposed and the process of getting permitted to make changes to your property that are in effect. The initiators of the HPOZ felt that the community has been informed about the prospective HPOZ for a long time. The hope is that the HPOZ and ICO in Holmby Hills will curb mansionization that is occurring in many Los Angeles neighborhoods where some builders are creating oversize homes that do not fit the character of the neighborhood. Some Attendee’s felt the turnout for the meeting was not representative of many of the neighbors in the neighborhoods that would be affected. Those in attendance were learning about the HPOZ for the first time and the IOC that is in effect in Holmby Hills. There was heated discussion about the effect that the HPOZ will have on property values in the neighborhood and who will be deciding what specific guidelines could be adopted. Some felt it would have a positive impact, some felt it would have a negative impact, and suggestions were made that the neighbors need to be more involved to have imput in what the rules within a HPOZ might look like.

Currently Holmby hills has a INTERIM CONTROL ORDINANCE that restricts remodels and stops the tearing down of homes in the neighborhood for the next few years. The intent was to curb new construction while some more specific guidelines could be created to help avoid homes being torn down with little regard for the neighboring homes and character of the neighborhood. The ICO (http://zimas.lacity.org/documents/zoneinfo/ZI2443.pdf)  has been in effect for several months. Residents spoke up stating that many residents are just learning about it.They felt it was not a highly publicized initiative. Members of the Board stated that the ordinance and HPOZ have been discussed for a long time. One family expressed their concerns about having a one story home and their hope to add a second story or a future family having an interest in buying their home with the potential to add a second story .They have concerns If there are restrictions placed on adding a second story in the future which they hoped would increase property value  They are residents of the neighborhood for a long time and had looked forward to future appreciation for families that may want to buy homes in the neighborhood. The City stated they did not encourage adding a second story but that future and further discussions would be held about adding second stories to homes. Leaders from the City tried to express their intent to preserve the historic value of the homes in the neighborhood.contact Kimberly Henry, Planning Assistant ,who represents the city, gave an example of current restrictions regarding replacing windows and most older homes have wooden windows so they would encourage the use of wood windows for replacement. Other residents expressed that new building materials for windows may in some cases have better thermal properties ,cost, etc. Some attendee’s said the specifics have not been addressed and on some level they agreed with having a HPOZ but this evenings discussion gave them concern for the rules that may be made. They felt that if more people learn about it, they will understand how it affects their property and should be involved in the process. Many residents complained that they felt other people should not dictate what they can do and can’t to their homes. Other residents spoke up and said there will be more meetings to express their views.Those supporting the HPOZ reiterated that it will be good for the preservation of the neighborhood. Most agreed that they were in favor of preserving the character of the neighborhood, but not if they don’t have a say in the specific rules that will affect them.There were comments that the residents in general in Holmby Hills were not informed about many details. It was suggested that it is important to read the IOC , inform more residents ,and get involved in further discussions about future restrictions in the neighborhood or select few will be deciding the future of Holmby Hills. The City announced they plan to hold more meetings between now and December to move the process forward. Some in the audience felt there were few residents informed about the meeting and therefore very few residents were present at the meetings . After much heated discussion, it was suggested that through involvement and information, hopefully more residents would get involved in the future meetings .Holmby Westwood residential Historic District paperwork presented at the Outreach Meeting.Holmby Westwood Historic additional pages from the meeting for residents to review.
