A mixed-use development is on the way to Westwood Blvd, on a site just north of Santa Monica Blvd. Here are the details from the Department of City Planning:
1777 S WESTWOOD BLVD 90024
DEMOLITION OF A (E) RETAIL CENTER AND CONSTRUCTION OF A (N) MIXED-USE RESIDENTIAL PROJECT CONSISTING OF 71 RESIDENTIAL UNITS, A CHILDCARE FACILITY AND 6,237 SQ FT OF GROUND FLOOR COMMERCIAL
I'm sure a lot of drivers will decry adding more density to traffic congested Westwood Blvd, especially with the full Purple Line extension still on the distant horizon. However, this is a very walkable neighborhood with a wide variety of stores and restaurants located in close proximity. You can leave the Volvo at home more often when there's a grocery store across the street.
