There is a fight under way regarding the “Reese-Davidson Community” proposed mega development for the large parking lot/open space at Venice Blvd and Pacific. It has been nicknamed the Monster in the Median or Monster on the Venice Canals.
The Reese-Davidson Community on the Venice Canals is proposed to be constructed on a 2.8-acre parcel in a residential area straddling Grand Canal at the Venice Boulevard entrance to Venice Beach, a block from the southern edge of the Venice Boardwalk. It would be a 3 story, 2 block long, mega development on for Venice and Pacific, built by Venice Community Housing Corp. and Hollywood Community Housing Corp.
The approval process for the Reese-Davidson Community (a.k.a. the “Monster”) on the Venice Canals was supposed to start this week with a hearing before the City Planning Department’s Deputy Advisory Agency (“DAA”) on Thursday, Oct. 22, 2020.
However, the hearing was postponed, as it was discovered that multiple residents own mineral rights on the land, and were not notified of the hearing. We will keep you updated on the new hearing date.
