City Hall's Plan For 'Revitalizing' LA River? Build, Baby, Build

Elysian Valley and other river communities are slated for luxury overdevelopment

Here's LA City Hall's plan for "revitalizing the LA River" -- as seen from a drone shot above Elysian Valley. It's not about more open space and the environment. It's all about luxury development. 

Not a single public hearing has been held, but Elysian Valley next to Echo Park is slated for massive urban cleansing: $3,000 per month apartment complexes.

Yes, crammed on what developers are marketing as the river's "waterfront," which is one more slick way to charge sky-high housing prices. But note the thick trees in the river to the right of the mega-development. 

End the craziness.
