I recently had a client lease a home on the beach in Santa Monica as a way to try living at the beach. You can spend hours on the sand or entertaining from a distance. There is nothing like breathing Ocean Air. In Santa Monica and Manhattan Beach you have the joy of the bike path for walking ,running, skating and cycling. Views and Sunsets of the Ocean are beautiful to come home to.

Some of my favorite beach communities are Point Dume ,where you have access to one of 3 beaches. Malibu has many different sub communities whether you want to be directly on the beach or within close distance. Try Broad Beach, Zuma Beach, La Costa Beach, Trancas Beach etc. Marina Del Rey has the canals of Venice ,shopping and dining along Abbott Kinney. Venice has Main Street and the Santa Monica Promenade. Manhattan beach has all the restaurants and shops close by and great schools. Playa Del Rey has become home to the tech industry and Hermosa Beach has rolling hills surrounding it.

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.
