The Village at Westfield Topanga is Coming.....Hang Onto Your Hats

According to the LA Daily News, the City Council approved the Village at Westfield Topanga today. What this means is that a Costco and 50 shops will be added in the first phase (2013) and an office, hotel, and more shops in the second phase (2016). This will be built in the vacant lot between the Topanga and Promenade malls.

I talked about this before with the small creek on the corner of Owensmouth and Victory likely to be destroyed and with the opportunity to voice your concerns as well as the Back to the Future post about the Promenade mall (the Topanga mall post will be coming at some point..I hope). 

Do we really need another mall, Costco, hotel, and office space in Warner Center? Whats the impact to existing businesses? Whats the impact to traffic? Its going to be a nightmare especially if the Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne site is converted to a hotel and apartment units. This area is going to be so packed, its not even funny. Avoid this area come Christmas time. 

I am all for job growth, city tax revenue, beautification of this dump, and business development but at what cost and will this truly be "growth?" Will others suffer and be impacted including the impact to the environment and local traffic? 

I hope the City Council thought hard about this decision. Am I the only one with these concerns?
