For those interested in land-use issues around Los Angeles, tonight The Mews (the ultra-modern single family homes that just finished being built on Perlita Avenue, north of Los Feliz Blvd.) is hosting a panel discussion on the city’s Small Lot Subdivision (SLS) ordinance. The 2004 law allows developers to divide up a single lot in order to build a collection of single-family homes or detached town houses – supposedly allowing for more affordable homes (usually smaller) and keeping out large developers from building huge apartment complexes.
Like most city planning ordinances, these things can be pretty confusing. But new projects like The Mews is one that utilized the ordinance to build its 23 units on one lot – and according to the website is one of the first. This is an opportunity to learn more about the SLS ordinance and The Mews in Atwater Village:
The Mews at Atwater Village is an eco-friendly community consisting of 23 new homes. In addition to utilizing the innovative SLS ordinance, the leading architects of the Mews have incorporated a variety of LEED elements into the project, including solar power energy systems as a standard feature. Please join us and the following esteemed panelists for a discussion on the SLS ordinance’s implementation and future, followed by a tour of the Mews.
And since they just held their open house last Sunday on March 20, you’ll get to see the new place first-hand.
Have we mentioned yet they are tempting you with food? Complimentary food and wine will be catered by Top Chef Betty, “The Food Chick.”
Speakers include: DeveloperRachel Gerstein of RLG Properties, Inc., and architects Anthony Stark and Richard Corsini of Corsini + Starck Architects
Program Agenda: The evening will start with an informal networking opportunity at 6:30 pm, followed by a moderated panel discussion until 7:45 pm, ending with a 30-45 minute tour and Q & A session, wrapping up by 8:30 pm.
