    New Marina del Rey development was not pushed by developers, just the opposite. The county needed to exploit revenue from apts to compensate the USC county hosp. and others for health care provided to illegals. So, they are building more apts. Remember in recent years how many hospitals were forced to close because they could not keep providing free care to those w/o insurance or funds.

      I believe it is a combination of both County and Developers, and illegals are not a business for them is actually to fill out County and developers pockets

    I wonder which government officials are getting paid to allow the amount of apartment/condo building that is going on our Marina area.

    It is becoming unsafe and totally too congested to make sense to enjoy a lifestyle that should have been made available.

    I want to know who the people are on the council or city development planning committees who were so easily swayed to allow these monstrosities to be built.

    Shame on all of them for their greed and ignorance.

    The Developers are ruining everything that has made Marina del Rey a gem for so many years. Views of the water, boats and space to ride a bike, jog, take a walk. Now it will be filled with apartment rentals, condos and no way to get in and out of the area within 20 minutes of traffic. ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS. Developers take their money and move on to their gated communities. Not to say, how much can the landfill withstand!!

      this has got to stop…there is no way this wild building should be permitted….there wont be any quality of life in the Marina…There has to be traffic mitigation addressed before these projects are even approved.

    MDR was built by the army corp. of engineers to be the worlds largest small boat harbor. The original permit guaranteed the boaters mountain views from their boats… both promises broken.
    Traffic is already horrendous and now we are going to add10k parking spaces. When will enough be enough? When ruin everything that made LA great?
    Keep the original agreement with the corps of engineers.

    Hmmm – Development issues? The local government seems to be working with the big developers on this bikes over cars crap. From what this looks like bike parking will allow them to build bigger with less required parking. Sneaky devils, trying to make this look like some sort of hippy-dippy, eco project.
