LA to Buy Da Vinci Site?
LA councilman Tom LaBonge wants the city to look into buying the site of last month's Da Vinci fire, potentially to use as parking, the LA Times reports. The fire destroyed the 526-unit Da Vinci and was later confirmed as arson. The development from Geoff Palmer on West Temple has been less than popular in the city, and the Times says LaBonge believes it is just too close to the freeway to be rebuilt as originally planned. The development was to span an entire city block and total 1.3M SF.
